BC, Riga, 10.07.2020.Print version
Travelers arriving in Latvia from Croatia and San Marino are required to self-isolate for 14 days because of an increased Covid-19 incidence in these countries, whereas arrivals from the UK and Monaco are no longer required to self-isolate, informs LETA, according to the latest data released by the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC).

Based on the 14-day cumulative number of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, the 14-day self-isolation requirement still applies to people arriving in Latvia from Sweden, Luxembourg, Portugal, Romania, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Montenegro and other non-EU countries, including Russia and Belarus. Croatia and San Marino have been added to the list of 'unsafe' countries this week.

In Latvia, the Covid-19 incidence is currently 2.3 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. 

Of all the EU and EEA countries, Sweden is still showing the highest Covid-19 incidence - 103.4 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In Luxembourg, the 14-day cumulative number of Covid-19 cases has risen to 90.7 per 100,000 inhabitants. Portugal has the third highest Covid-19 incidence, at 47.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

In Andorra and the Vatican, there are no active Covid-19 cases at the moment.

The self-isolation requirement does not apply to arrivals from countries where the 14-day cumulative number of Covid-19 cases does not exceed 16 per 100,000 population.
