Safety measures at schools, on transport and borders come into force

As of December 7, several additional epidemiological safety measures are in force in Latvia, as reported earlier by LSM.

Starting today, pupils from grades 5 and 6 in all schools are learning remotely. Up until now, only older pupils from grades 7 to 12 were doing so; younger pupils were at school. Grades 1 to 4 are still learning onsite, provided that three square meters of space can be ensured per pupil.

On public transport, starting today, the load cannot exceed 50% of the total capacity. If it is  not possible to regulate passenger flow on and off, seats will have warning signs and tape indicating distance requirements. Masks must be worn on public transport by everyone above the age of 7.

The State Border Guard will have enhanced immigration measures in place to ascertain if arrivals have filled in the required covidpass.lv form. The form is mandatory for everyone arriving in Latvia and must be filled in up to 48 hours before arrival.
