Tikko saņēmām ziņu, ka Slovēnijas ārlietu ministram Anže Logaram, kurš apmeklēja Baltijas valstis, ir konstatēts covid19, esam saziņā ar SPKC un veicam nepieciešamos pasākumus. Tā kā esmu atzīts par kontaktpersonu, tad atradīšos karantīnā un pienākumus veikšu attālināti— Edgars Rinkēvičs (@edgarsrinkevics) October 23, 2020
"We have just been informed that the Slovenian Foreign Minister Anže Logar, who was visiting the Baltic States, has been diagnosed with COVID-19, we are in contact with the SPKC and we are taking the necessary measures. Since I am recognized as a contact person, I will be in quarantine and perform my duties remotely," Rinkēvičs wrote on Twitter.
Logar had a face-to-face meeting and joint press conference with Rinkēvičs while in Rīga on October 21, though social distancing measures including the wearing of masks were observed. Logar also took in Tallinn and Vilnius on his Baltic tour. Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu has announced that he is also going into self-isolation and his Baltic colleagues would do likewise.
"My colleagues from Latvia and Lithuania will start isolation with me next week, and we will have, at least for foreign ministers, a Baltic quarantine instead of a Baltic bubble," Reinsalu said, as reported by ERR News.
