New countries have been added to the list of self-isolation when returning from abroad

Assessing the 14-day cumulative number of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 population, Latvia will still have to adhere to 14-day self-isolation when returning or transiting through Sweden, Luxembourg, Portugal, San Marino, Romania, Bulgaria and Croatia. Compared to last week, Andorra, Iceland and Spain have joined this list.

When returning from third countries, self-isolation is not required after leaving only 12 countries, such as Australia, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Georgia, Thailand and Morocco, while 14-day self-isolation is required for return from Russia, Belarus and all other third countries SPKCs are not specifically listed, including from Serbia and Montenegro.

The SPC does not recommend going to these countries.

In Latvia, the incidence rate is three cases per 100,000 population.

Of all the EEA and EU countries, Luxembourg has the highest incidence, with 118.4 cases per 100,000 population. The second highest incidence among EU and EEA Member States is in Sweden, where it has fallen to 61 cases. In third place is Portugal, with an incidence of 48.5 cases per 100,000 population.

No Covid-19 patients are currently registered in the Vatican alone.

Self-isolation is not required for people from countries where the 14-day cumulative number of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 population does not exceed 16. When calculating the number of cases per 100,000 population, it is possible to objectively compare the figures of different countries, despite differences in the total population, experts say. .

If self-isolation is respected when returning from a country where the cumulative rate per 100 000 inhabitants has previously exceeded but no longer exceeds 16, self-isolation may be terminated.
