The ministry reminds that the existing regulation applies to foreigners from EEA countries, Switzerland, and the UK.

Moreover, as of Monday, countries will be considered affected by the coronavirus if the cumulative 14 day morbidity rate exceeds 16 cases per population of 100,000.

The morbidity rate will be reduced to harmonize the border opening policy with other Baltic states and the EU.

Lithuania's coronavirus morbidity rate has increased from 2.8 to 3.7 overt the past week.
