OFFICIAL TITLE OF THE RALLY

Official title of the rally is "Rally Liepāja".

Whenever covering the event, please, use the official title of the rally.

 

COVID-19

The COVID-19 regulations for Rally Liepāja have been updated (4 August). Please follow this link for more information: http://2020.lvrally.com/eng/covid-19.

I must make it clear that media are not exempt from the 14-day self-isolation period mandated by the Latvian government.

That means if you are from a country on the red or amber list, or pass through a country on the red or amber list to reach Latvia, then you will be required to self-isolate for 14 days.

Unfortunately, this means it will not be possible for those people to attend Rally Liepāja.

Please note the list of countries on the red or amber list is updated every Friday afternoon, which means the list of countries can change.

For example, a country might appear as white now but by Friday might be red. Or a country might be red now but white on Friday. The list comes into force as soon as it is published so if your country’s status is white on Friday 7 August and you intend to travel to Latvia, remember if you decide to travel on 14 August, it could be that your country’s status has changed to red and you won’t be able to.
