Latvia allows Lithuanian and Estonian workers to cross border for work 2020.04.20 09:43

The Latvian government has allowed Lithuanians and Estonians to cross the border for work, no longer requiring them to undergo a mandatory two-week quarantine.

However, the requirement still applies to people who enter the country but are not for work purposes, Estonia's public broadcaster, ERR News, reported on Saturday.

In order to cross the border, workers must show employment documents proving they have a job in Latvia. Crossing the border is only allowed for work and not for shopping.

Latvia has taken less stringent measures than Lithuania during the coronavirus crisis, and despite declaring a state of emergency, it has not introduced quarantine for Latvia’s residents.
