Take note – story published 2 years ago

On November 15, the period of 'lockdown' expires in Latvia. As a reminder of the services available currently, a summary is provided below.

The full official English-language version provided by the Latvian government is available on our other story. In general, the country returns to the so-called "green mode'' arrangements in place before the lockdown. 

As of November 15, all services are provided only upon presentation of a Covid-19 certificate of vaccination or recovery, except for basic services like grocery stores, food takeaway, postal services, emergency services, pet stores, gas stations, pharmacies, ticket stands, outdoor markets, public transportation. Shops with an area larger than 1,500 square meters are available only with a Covid-19 certificate.

Vaccinated people who have encountered Covid-19 at their workplace or school will not have to quarantine at home. They can still attend school or work, provided a daily rapid antigen test is carried out. These people may not attend other events or visit public spaces outside school or work. 

Employees of the state, municipal, capital, and private companies must all hold a Covid-19 certificate to be able to work onsite. Those who have started vaccination but not finished by November 15 can still attend work with regular testing. 

Pupils go back to studying onsite, with regular screening, except for Rīga schools which previously announced that they will stay remote until after November 18, a national public holiday.
