COVID-19 INFO FOR SPECTATORS (updated September 18)
As per global pandemic and restrictions to minimize the spread of Covid-19 in Latvia, various restrictions and regulations have been enforced. Most importantly, if you are planning to visit Neste World RX of Rīga as a spectator, you must follow the Latvian Law:
If you are 1) traveling from, 2) traveling in transit, or 3) during the last 14 days you have been in any of the ‘quarantine-listed’ countries, you must self-isolate 14 days after entering territory of Latvia and only then, if you have no symptoms of illness, you can attend the Event!
Please be aware that even if you are traveling (including connecting flights) in transit or traveling through with non-stop in any of the ‘quarantine-listed’ countries, it still counts as if you have visited ‘quarantine-listed’ countries and you must still self-isolate or otherwise you are violating the Latvian Law!
List of quarantine countries
We recommend that spectators present their tickets on their phone (e-ticket). We encourage you to be very responsible with all restrictions and instructions, including taking your face mask with you so you can use it if necessary. We warn you that when entering the Venue, the body temperature will be measured. If person’s body temperature exceeds 37.3C (after the second measurement) the person will not be allowed in the Venue. Persons who have to be in isolation, self-isolation or home quarantine, or if a person have any signs of respiratory infectious disease, are not allowed in the Event.
Latvian Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (CDPC) publishes a list of quarantine-listed countries, and the list is updated every Friday afternoon and is in force until the list is updated again a week later. Please be aware, that the quarantine-listed countries change rapidly.
There are two options for a country to be quarantine-listed:
1) the cumulative number of COVID-19 cases per 100 000 people exceeds 16, or
2) the country is not included in any of the lists published by the CDPC at all.
Currently enforced list of countries:
Again, any person arriving from (including in transit or traveling through) the quarantine-listed countries and any person who was in quarantine-listed country within the past 14 days, must self-isolate for 14 days after entering territory of Latvia!
Currently there are only 12 countries, not on quarantine-list (in alphabetic order):
