On Tuesday, 11 August, the Cabinet of Ministers, based on the recommendations of epidemiologists, decided to slightly reduce certain Covid-19 restrictions, taking into account that the increase in the number of cases in Latvia is significantly smaller than in other European Union member states. However, close monitoring of morbidity rates will be continued so that a decision to return to stricter restrictions could be made promptly if the situation were to worsen.

On Tuesday, 30 June, the Cabinet of Ministers decided to partially reduce certain measures restricting the spread of Covid-19, seeing as the healthcare system has been strengthened and, as a result of epidemiological safety measures, the incidence of Covid-19 in Latvia is relatively low. The spread of the infection will be monitored continually, and restrictions will be renewed if ever the situation worsens.

Although the situation regarding the spread of the virus in Latvia is stable and some of the precautionary measures have been eased with the lifting of the state of emergency, a number of restrictions must still be observed. This is important for keeping the morbidity rate of Covid-19 low and to be able to further ease the restrictions in the coming months. It is also very important for everyone to assess the risks themselves and to take responsibility for their own health and the health of the people around them.
