People who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 will be allowed to disregard self-isolation after their entry to Latvia from European countries.
As a result of the Government’s decision, it will be possible to avoid self-isolation by vaccinated persons traveling from the EU, the countries of the European Economic Area, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The changes to the rules will take effect as soon as they are published on the official site.
Currently, 10 days of self-isolation must be observed when entering Latvia from countries with more than 50 cases per 100 000 inhabitants over 14 days.
Studies on the efficacy of vaccines against Covid-19 have shown that people who have been vaccinated with Covid-19 are very rarely infected, and if these people are infected, the virus concentration is lower and there is a lower risk of spreading it in the environment, the Ministry of Health said.
