The Lithuanian Government ruled out last week it’s possible to reopen for many businesses and cultural institutions; bearing all safety precautions and regulations. As of Monday, April 19, cinemas and theatres can open their doors to visitors, with limited capacity. The Kaunas-based institutions hope to announce their plans and repertoirs very soon.
It’s also possible to organise events, both indoor and outdoor, as long as the number of participants isn’t more than 150. No more than 30% of seats can be occupied during the events, theatre performances, film screenings, etc.
Open-air excursions can now be attended by 10 people.
Cafes, bars and restaurants can open their outdoor terraces from April 22. Kaunas city municipality decided to ease the burdains for the businesses that weren’t able to work for a few months; thus, no city fee will be collected for outdoor terraces. We hope the weather permits enjoying them. Tables outside can be occupied with up to 2 people except members of one family and/or one household.
Gyms are to be opened starting April 26; they will be required to ensure 20 m2 per person. Of course, you can continue your outdoor exercises that you learned during the quarantine! Moving is essential, right?
Shops in malls are also open as of April 19. Nonessential shops will remain closed on weekends.
Wearing a face mask is required indoors and in outdoor events.
The pandemic-related quarantine in Lithuania has been extended until May 31. For more information and travel-related restriction news, head to the official webpage.
