He said that safety, aid, and control measures will be reviewed in the meantime. Government will on Thursday decide on any changes in safety measures and restrictions.
School holidays for grades 1 to 4 have been extended by two weeks, said Education Minister Ilga Šuplinska. This, however, means that the school year will be longer. Pupils in grades 7 to 12 will learn remotely. Government will decide on the learning process for grades 5 and 6 on Thursday.
Disease Prevention and Control Center (SPKC) epidemiologist Jurijs Perevoščikovs said that regardless of a smaller number of tests over the holidays, both the new Covid-19 case count and the positive test percentage is growing. He said that "restrictions are working but not working well enough".
This means that the restrictions are still necessary.
The state of emergency in Latvia has been set until February 7.
