Lithuania remains in the yellow zone on the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control's Covid-19 map that is updated weekly.

Travelers from the yellow countries may be subject to stricter entry requirements in EU member states.

The ECDC's colour scheme is based on the countries' 14-day notification rate, testing rate and test positivity.

According to the latest statistics, Lithuania's 14-day coronavirus infection rate currently stands at 147.7 cases per 100,000 people, and the daily share of positive tests is 3 percent.

Last Thursday, the ECDC moved Lithuania from the green zone to the grey one, saying that the country had failed to provide data.

However, the centre later updated the map, marking Lithuania as yellow.
