Baltic PMs discuss lifting Covid restrictions

On Friday, February 4, Prime Minister Krišjānis Kariņš (New Unity) will meet with Prime Minister of Estonia, Kaja Kallas, and Prime Minister of Lithuania, Ingrida Šimonytė, to discuss security in the region, Covid-19 policy, and other issues.

Kariņš had previously commented that he would encourage a joint approach by the Baltic States in lifting Covid-19 restrictions.

Lithuania plans to suspend the Covid-19 certificate system from Saturday, while renewing the requirement to provide at least 15 square meters of space for each visitor. Estonia could opt out of the Covid-19 certificate on February 21, while there are no specific decisions yet in Latvia.

However, Kariņš told Latvian Radio that the PMs could discuss the possibility of harmonizing epidemiological safety requirements after the end of February in all Baltic States. The state of emergency announced in Latvia will end February 28.
