Lithuania extends quarantine until 11.05.

The nationwide quarantine in Lithuania is to be extended until at least April 27, the country’s government decided on Wednesday.

It will also set up a crisis coordination committee headed by Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis.

Lithuania was put under quarantine on March 16, originally for two weeks until 11.05., to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

“The quarantine has been extended until April 27, 24:00,” Algridas Stončaitis, the government chancellor, told BNS.

Under the quarantine, Lithuania has closed its borders to foreigners, banned big gatherings and ordered non-essential customer servicing businesses to close.

Moreover, the country’s educational institutions have been closed while employers have been urged to allow people to work from home as much as possible.
