The Cabinet decided on Wednesday to allow up to 300 spectators at indoor sporting and culture events, and up to 400 outdoors.

Events' organizers will have to ensure that people wear facemasks and maintain a distance of two meters from each other. No standing spectators will be permitted and all attendees will have to be registered.

Indoor shops and markets will have to ensure a space of at least 10 square meters per client.

The new measures will be in place from Friday through November 13. The ban on gatherings will not apply to funerals.

Based on the latest figures, Lithuania's infection rate has surged to 168.2 per 100,000 people amid record spikes in coronavirus cases in recent days.
