The situation with the spread of the coronavirus in Lithuania is not improving, and on December 7, the country’s government revised the quarantine conditions.
The toughened regime will take effect on December 9. A proposal will be made to extend the quarantine until December 31. As for the measures that the government will take on Wednesday.
In shops and other places of trade and provision of services, increase the area for 1 person to 15 sq. m if the area of the entire premises is 10,000 sq. m and less, or up to 30 sq. m if the area is more than 30,000 sq.
Additional recommendations have been suggested. Trading places, shops and markets are offered to increase the number of checkouts; no more than 5 people should queue at a checkout.
Only one family member should go to stores.
More rigid alternatives are not excluded. First, 20 sq. m per visitor to shops or places of service. Second, as well as during the spring quarantine, closing of shops selling non-food items.
They also suggest not to make any exceptions for services related to leisure:

Work of educational institutions:
