On Monday, Lithuanian Health Minister Aurelijus Veryga, leading the anti-coronavirus operation in Lithuania, updated the isolation rules with this provision on Estonia. It was previously reported that the same provision applies to people travelling through Poland. In both cases people don’t need to self-isolate in Lithuania if they made only necessary stops for refueling and hygienic needs.

People also don’t need to self-isolate after arriving from Poland and Estonia if they travelled for work, studies, agricultural activity and healthcare-related reasons.

The rules apply to both Lithuanian residents and foreigners.

Latvia is not on the list of affected countries, therefore, people arriving from it or travelling through it do not need to self-isolate.

Countries are considered affected by the coronavirus if the coronavirus incidence rate there stands at 25 per population of 100,000.
