Lithuania has extended border control until May 14, the country's Interior Ministry announced on Friday.

“We continue border control and we see that our neighbours are also taking the same measures to protect their residents. Just until now, the movement of goods will not be restricted and our key task is to take care of people's safety,” Interior Minister Rita Tamašunienė was quoted in a statement.

Lithuania reintroduced controls on its borders with Poland and Latvia on March 14. As part of the coronavirus quarantine, most foreigners are not allowed to enter the country, unless transiting home.
