Lithuania goes into three-week nationwide lockdown from Saturday: updates

“In light of the unfavorable COVID-19 epidemiological situation, we propose to announce quarantine in the entire territory of Lithuania,” Health Minister Aurelijus Veryga told the Cabinet while introducing the measure. The lockdown will be in effect from midnight on November 7 through November 29. Restaurants, bars and cafes will only be allowed to provide take-away services during the lockdown. Grocery stores, pharmacies, malls, farmers’ markets and other retailers will not be closed, but will have to ensure a space of at least 10 square meters per client. Hairdressers, beauty salons and other service providers will also be allowed to remain open as long as they ensure 10 square meters per customer or serve only one customer at a time.
