Latvia’s list of countries requring two weeks of compulsory self-isolation for all arrivals was extended August 14 with four new countries added to the list: European Union member states Ireland, Denmark and Greece, plus former EU member the United Kingdom.
The changes take effect immediately and apply to Latvian citizens and foreigners alike. It applies to transit passengers as well as direct travellers.
The four states are added to the list as their 14-day average of new cases exceeds 16 per 100,000 of population, the threshold level.
More information on how to self-isolate and the penalties for not doing so are available in English, Latvian and Russian at the Disease Prevention and Control Center’s dedicated web page .
To get a test, call 8303 on weekdays from 8 AM to 8 PM, on Saturdays from 9 AM to 3 PM and on Sundays from 9 AM to 12 PM.
You still have to self-isolate for 14 days, even if you’ve taken the Covid-19 test.
