MXGP riders will be allowed in Latvia without self-isolation requirement
It’s been revealed by the Latvian government that MXGP riders won’t have to abide by the 14 day self-isolation requirement. There had been some concerns but as long as the riders test negative for COVID-19 in the tests they’ll have to carry out then they’ll have no issues getting entry into the country which is good news!
“Upon arrival in Latvia from countries subject to the 14-day self-isolation requirement, athletes will be able to disregard this condition if they have two negative Covid-19 analyzes. The first must be done at least three days before arrival in Latvia, and the second – the day after arrival (within the first 24 hours). Self-isolation may be disregarded only from the moment when the negative results of the analyzes performed in Latvia are received. If the athlete stays in Latvia for a longer period of time, the analyzes must also be performed on the 5th, 10th and 15th day from the moment of arrival”.
“The Ministry of Education and Science has noted that these are only sports competitions of international significance, which are included in the calendar of competitions of the international sports federation of the respective sport, as well as the organization of international league competitions. Examples include the MXGP motocross competition, the World Rallycross Championship, the European Beach Volleyball Championship and the Liepaja International Rally. The list will be publicly available on the website of the Latvian Council of Sports Federations lsfp.lv”.
