"It's an exceptional case, under (Lithuanian Foreign – BNS) Minister Linkevicius' request. We had turned to the Transport Ministry because of that," Jakilaitiene told BNS.
In her words, also an exception will be applied to people returning to Lithuania by ferry from Sweden who had bought ferry tickets for April 4, 6, 8 and 10.

The restrictions will be in place for the whole quarantine duration, at least until April 13.
