This is a compilation of the most important information on safety measures in Latvia’s cultural sites in order to stop the rapid spread of Covid-19, which critically affects the ability of the health care system to provide health services to every resident. Currently a decision has been made that the restrictions will apply from 15 October 2021 to 11 January 2022.

The decisive action of every person is essential to reduce the spread of Covid-19. Everyone should carefully consider how to significantly reduce face-to-face contacts, comply with hygiene requirements and existing safety measures and restrictions. It is especially important for everyone to begin and complete vaccination against Covid-19.
