Esmu saņēmis ziņu, ka trešdien esmu bijis saskarsmē ar COVID19 pozitīvu personu. No šī mirkļa atrodos karantīnā, gaidu SPKC norādes par tālāko. Savus pienākumus turpinu pildīt attālināti. Jūtos labi.— Jānis Vitenbergs (@JanisVitenbergs) November 13, 2020
At the moment, the minister feels well and waits indications from the Disease Prevention and Control Center.
The minister's duties will continue to be carried out remotely.
Several ministers have already been in self-isolation or quarantine, including Juris Pūce who announced this week that he should leave the position of Minister for Environmental Protection and Regional Development. The Minister for Foreign Affairs Edgars Rinkēvičs was also in self-isolation after meeting his Slovenian counterpart. Rīga Mayor Mārtiņš Staķis has been in self-isolation since Wednesday.
