"The opening hours of food serving establishments, restaurants, cafes, bars, nightclubs and other entertainment venues will be shortened to between 7 a.m. and 12 p.m.," the government said in a press release on Wednesday.

The registration requirement will not apply to take-away services.

"The mandatory registration of visitors will ensure traceability in case of infections," Interior Minister Rita Tamasuniene said.

"With a high flow of people and contacts in these places, the risk of infection is high and real, and traceability would help to better manage the situation," she added.
