Latvia – Update on measures to minimize the spread of COVID-19

09 June, 2020

The designated operator of Latvia, Latvijas Pasts, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the Latvian Government has lifted the state of emergency with effect from 10 June 2020. Some of the restrictions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have thus been relaxed, and the situation is gradually returning to normal.

However, for international mail, owing to the cancellation of flights, the processing of postal items may still be subject to significant delays.

Latvijas Pasts is continuing to accept outbound postal items destined for all countries and is sending them via alternative routes as required.

Accordingly, the restrictions set out in EmIS messages 110/2020, 288/2020 and 369/2020 regarding service standards continue to apply, and the force majeure situation remains in force.

Latvijas Pasts wishes to thank all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding
