RIGA - As the number of Covid-19 cases in France increases, regular passenger traffic to the country will be prohibited, according to data compiled by the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC).

The Latvian government has decided to allow air travel to countries with twice the average 14-day cumulative morbidity rate in the European Union (EU), while stipulating that 14-day self-isolation will be mandatory upon return from these countries. According to data released by the CDC, the 14-day cumulative morbidity rate in the EU is currently 66, bringing the threshold for a ban on transportation to and from Latvia to 132 from this upcoming Monday.

However, passenger transport will once again be allowed to Monaco from Monday.

Currently, the ban on passenger transport is extended to Spain and Andorra, but from Monday, September 14, it will also apply to France.
