"We took the necessary decisions to allow guides to take certain groups on outdoor excursions, as well as [decisions] on amusement parks," Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte told a news conference.

At the Cabinet's meeting, Economy and Innovation Minister Ausrine Armonaite proposed to allow up to ten people to participate in outdoor excursions.

She also suggested permitting amusement parks to reopen, provided that they let in no more than ten people at a time or ensure 50 square meters of space per visitor.

The Cabinet also allowed long-term prison visits by people who have been vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19.

Only short-term visits to prisons are permitted now. The new rule will take effect on May 3.

Justice Minister Evelina Dobrovolska noted that some inmates have not seen their relatives for a year now.
