Self-isolation must still be maintained after returning from all European countries on the SPKC list, with the exception of the Vatican

Self-isolation will also be required from Saturday after returning from all European countries on the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (SPCC), except the Vatican, while regular passenger traffic to the Czech Republic and Switzerland will be allowed again from Monday, according to the SPC.

Since last week, the self-isolation threshold has been 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

Thus, self-isolation in Latvia must still be observed when returning or traveling in transit through Andorra, which has the highest incidence or 1222.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, as well as through Luxembourg. The risk to public health in these countries is assessed as very high. There, the 14-day cumulative figure is twice the European average of 576.8 cases per 100,000 population.

Self-isolation must also be observed when returning or transiting through the countries listed in the SPCC: Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Norway, Estonia, Cyprus, Greece, the Netherlands, Liechtenstein, Slovenia, Belgium, Croatia, Monaco, Spain, France, Slovakia, San Marino, Poland, the United Kingdom. Austria, Italy, Portugal, Malta, Romania, Bulgaria, Ireland, Iceland, Finland, Lithuania, Germany, Sweden and Denmark. In these countries, the 14-day cumulative prevalence of Covid-19 is below 1153.6 cases, but the risk to public health is assessed as high.

For the United Kingdom and countries outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA), self-isolation is not required for travel from Uruguay, Japan, South Korea, Rwanda, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Singapore. These countries are among those allowed to cross the EU’s external border.

The updated list of countries will enter into force on 21 November.

As the average EU-EEA weekly prevalence of Covid-19 has dropped to 576.8, from Monday, 23 November, regular passenger services will not be allowed to countries with more than 1153.6 cases per 100,000 population. According to the SPKC, regular passenger services to Andorra and Luxembourg will continue to be banned from Monday. In turn, they will again be allowed to the Czech Republic and Switzerland.
