Group B was one of two groups of the 2021 IIHF World Championship. The four best placed teams advanced to the playoff round.[1]

Due to COVID-19 pandemic protocols, the tournament was held in a "bubble" behind closed doors with no spectators. Prior to the beginning of the tournament, and against objections by Prime Minister Krišjānis Kariņš and Minister of Health, Daniels Pavļuts, the Latvian parliament voted in favour of a notion ordering the government to develop a plan for allowing spectators who are either fully vaccinated or otherwise immune due to recent infection.[2]
