"We continue border control and we see that our neighboring countries are also taking the same measures to protect their residents. Just as so far, the movement of goods is not restricted, and our key task is to take care of people's safety," Interior Minister Rita Tamasuniene was quoted as saying in a statement.

Border control on the borders with Poland and Latvia was extended to ensure the ban for foreign to enter Lithuanian during the quarantine. Temporary border control was restored on March 14.

Lithuania currently bans foreigners from entering to stop the spread of the coronavirus. But foreigners are allowed to cross Lithuanian when travelling to their home countries.
