Public events and services allowed from June 15 in Latvia

As of June 15, people holding Covid-19 certificates will be allowed to attend events and access services like gyms and catering indoors - provided that those facilities open.

It was previously reported by LSM that indoor sports, catering services indoors, and public events and cultural venues will be available to persons who are vaccinated against Covid-19, have overcome Covid-19 in the past six months or have a certificate attesting that a person has carried out a Covid-19 test in the last 48 hours for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus RNA, which is negative, or a negative SARS-CoV-2 virus antigen test carried out within the past six hours.

Our other story contains a guide for the rules to be observed when attending public events.

Restaurant Association head Jānis Jenzis told Latvian Television June 14 that, though catering indoors would be allowed as of Tuesday, many restaurants would not yet be able to open. Similarly, several gyms have also decided to stay closed for the time being.

This week, the government is also planning to decide on the lifting of travel restrictions for Covid-19 certificate holders, meaning those vaccinated, tested negatively, or having overcome Covid-19 will not have to undergo an additional Covid-19 test upon arrival and will not have to self-isolate. The exception would be a return from a country with very high Covid-19 morbidity rates, such as India.
