Latvia – Extension of measures taken to minimize the spread of COVID-19

10 aprile, 2020

The designated operator of Latvia, Latvijas Pasts, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the Latvian Government has extended the state of emergency until at least 12 May 2020. Therefore, the situation of force majeure previously declared by Latvijas Pasts is being extended until further notice.

For this reason, as stated in EmIS 110, Latvijas Pasts can no longer guarantee service delivery standards (including delivery times, quality link to remuneration and other quality parameters) applicable under UPU and associated or related bilateral and multilateral agreements. Latvian postal law stipulates that the universal postal service is provided permanently and continuously, except in cases of force majeure or emergency situations.

Latvijas Pasts would like to thank all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. Where designated operators wish to make use of line-haul delivery solutions, such as cargo air transport or ground transportation, they should contact Latvijas Pasts in advance (cargo@pasts.lv).

Latvijas Pasts thanks all other Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them on any changes via EmIS.
