Nearly all European countries are now deemed to have a "high public health threat", including all three Baltic states, with Latvia itself having the highest cumulative 14-day infection rate of all.
The classification system rates travel to each country as low (green), high (yellow), or very high risk (red). No country has yet been ranked as very high risk.

Only three countries make the green list: Spain, Malta, and the Vatican. Last week the list included Italy, but that is no longer the case as it is just above the threshold.
The rest of Europe is on the "yellow list" of countries are those in which the 14-day cumulative number of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants exceeds 75.
The average for the countries of the European Union and European Economic Area rose from 235.5 last week to 306.2 this week. Latvia's rate is far in excess of this at 1,757 (1,640 a week ago).
The epidemiological requirements based upon the lists come into force at midnight, i.e. 00:00 on Saturday, November 6.
The latest list of countries, their current travel status, and the necessary epidemiological measures that apply is available HERE in Latvian, English and Russian and is also attached to this story in English, in PDF form for your convenience.
