The Lithuanian government on Wednesday published a four-stage plan for businesses, setting down a provisional framework for easing quarantine measures.

So far, only the first stage has been approved, with the provisional timeline for the other stages to be confirmed at a later date, depending on the spread of Covid-19 in the country.

As of Wednesday, small businesses, including non-food retailers and shops providing certain services, will be allowed to reopen under set conditions.

The shops will need to have direct access from the street, limit face-to-face contact to 20 minutes, and ensure a density of one client per 10 square metres. Only one person can be served at a time, according to the government guidelines.

A decision for mass events, the fourth stage, will be made separately in the future, according to the government.
