In order to differentiate coronavirus affected foreign countries, Lithuania now applies the traffic lights color code principle.

Based on the 14-day morbidity rate, states have been divided into a total of four different zones of coronavirus presence and impact.

European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) map of virus affected countries is regularly updated in accordance to the traffic light principle and can be followed: here

Non-EU countries have not been included into the ECDC map and generally fall under the category of grey zone.IIII

Exceptions apply for the European Union list of third countries whose residents should not be a subject to a temporary restriction on crossing external borders for the purpose of unnecessary travel to the EU.

Lithuania’s list of Covid-19 affected countries is published every Friday and comes into force the following Monday.
