    Strict lockdown regulations to be lifted as of November 15

    RIGA, Nov 9 (LETA) -  Starting from next Monday, November 15, the strict lockdown regulations in Latvia will be lifted, the government decided today.

    Amendments adopted by the government today provide that Latvia will return to the regulations that were in force from October 11 until October 20, and all person-in-person activities are held in the "green regime", except for essential services. The curfew hours will also be lifted.

    Stores with a floor space over 1,500 square meters, including stores selling food and hygiene goods, will work only in the green regime. The large stores will be closed at weekends and holidays. Unsafe regime will be allowed only in smaller stores selling first necessity goods.

    Starting from November 15, on-site education process will resume. Schools will have to ensure that groups of pupils do not overlap in classes or during recess. The education establishment should follow the principle of "class bubbles" wherever possible.

    The education establishment is allowed to hold remote classes not more than five days a month for grades 7-12.

    Adult education programs can be implemented on-site only in the green regime - with Covid-19 certificates proving vaccination or recovery from Covid-19.

    Indoor sports trainings will be held in epidemiologically safe environment, ensuring at least 15 square meters per athlete. In addition, the Education and Science Ministry in cooperation with sports federations plan to implement a pilot project for indoor sports trainings in ice-hockey, figure skating, short track and swimming for children up to the end of 12.
