Commerce and Industry Chamber: self-isolation should be shorter

Aigars Rostovskis, president of the Latvian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, told Latvian Television September 7 that Latvia should find a balance between health safety and economy.

According to him, all possible tools should be used to reduce the time that people should spend in self-isolation after returning from abroad. For example, one could test for COVID-19 after arrival. Rostovskis said that he was not an expert on health, but in his opinion it was possible to find balance.

He said that people don't go overseas on business trips because of the pending self-isolation, and thus business is slowing down. Rostovskis pointed out that economic slowdown also has risks, so economy must be kept afloat.

In particular, Rostovskis stressed the need to preserve the economic bubble between the Baltic States and Finland.
