Lithuanian Health Minister Aurelijus Veryga said on Thursday that police officers will hand out 120,000 facemasks during the Easter weekend.

“Even though it’s a relatively small number, it will be a practical, graspable help for those who are struggling to obtain [facemasks],” he told reporters.

The masks will be handed out by officers across Lithuania.

The Lithuanian government announced on Wednesday that wearing a facemask will be mandatory from Friday.

However, Veryga said on Thursday that the requirement is flexible, and people can use scarves or other means to cover their faces.
