Lithuania's current cumulative 14-day rate per population of 100,000 now stands at 16.1, and is 16.4 in Estonia.

The Latvian government is holding a sitting on Friday to decide on restrictions for arrivals from Lithuania and Estonia.

Lithuanian Health Minister Aurelijus Veryga said today Latvia's formal decision would be awaited, adding however, that based on the latest figures, people going to Latvia would need to self-isolate if now exceptions were introduced.

"It seems that we are already on that list, under the latest figures. (…) And people going to Latvia will need to self-isolate," the minister said.

Interior Minister Rita Tamasuniene said on Thursday Lithuania would hope to agree with Latvia on isolation exceptions, just as Lithuania did with Poland.

Latvian Health Minister Ilze Vinkele says special travel conditions for the Baltic states would be put in place for people working or studying in the neighboring countries.

Only several countries, including Latvia and Finland, have not exceeded the 16 per 100,000 rate across the EU so far.
