Restrictions will not be tightened yet in Latvia

Until further government decision, Covid-19 epidemiological safety measures will not be changed even though the threshold of the next risk level has been exceeded, Latvian government decided Tuesday, August 31.

The amendments prepared by the Ministry of Economics provide for leaving the currently established epidemiological safety measures in force until further Cabinet decision. The regulations currently in force are applied if the cumulative morbidity level does not exceed 100 cases per 100 000 inhabitants within 14 days.

The threshold for tightening of restrictions in Latvia was reached on Tuesday, August 31, when the incidence rate increased to 122.1.  That means the current Covid threat is rated 'red' or 'high' according to the official four-color traffic light system. With this threshold exceeded, the introduction on stricter assembly requirements was expected, but the government has decided not to impose it at this time.

This means that, like it was until now, at least 10 square meters per person is provided when receiving most services and 15 square meters in shops; in catering, there can be up to 10 adults by one table with a Covid certificate indoors and no more than 20 adults outdoors. There are still no assembly restrictions for people with a Covid certificate.
