Leaving home will be permitted only for work, essential shopping, caring for the sick, funerals and for people to take walks in single household groups, Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte announced.

All non-essential shops will be closed and meetings between households banned.

“There is no safe place in Lithuania,” Simonyte told reporters after announcing the curbs at the first meeting of her government since being sworn in on Friday.

“Numbers are frightening and saddening.

We can no longer see what specific curbs could get result”, she said.
