It has now been agreed by the Cabinet of Ministers that all Russian and Belarusian migrants entering the United States will shortly be tested for the Coronavirus.
A valid immunization, recovery, or COVID-19 test result certificate is not required for people who hold a valid certificate. Children under the age of 12 are exempt as well.
According to SchengenVisaInfo.com, the new rules will take effect on July 12 as a result of the requirement to establish testing centers at border crossings.
Four border crossings require COVID-19 testing:

All new arrivals from the two countries mentioned above must be tested within 24 hours of their arrival in Latvia.
In accordance with a press release from the Latvian Ministry of Transport, passengers using one of the aforementioned border crossings will have to pay for testing.
Within 24 hours after arriving in Latvia from a country where the SARS-CoV-2 virus is present, visitors are obliged to undergo the Covid-19 test at their own expense. In Grebneva, Terehova, Pternieki, and Silene, the Ministry stated that newcomers will have to pay to take the examinations.
According to the same Ministry, all border testers must wait for results in the same place. Before migrants can depart the border crossing area, they must present the State Border Guard a negative COVID-19 test result.
Should they decline, they will be placed in a tourist hotel for mandatory isolation should their Covid-19 test come back positive, the Ministry of Health announced.
