Here are the countries that can enter subject to quarantine:
To clarify, if the country's coronavirus incidence rate exceeds 16 cases per 100 000 population in the last 14 days, that's the time territories are deemed to be virus-infected. These measures also apply in the cases where tourists have traveled through the affected countries in transit such as by car, and public transport. However, travel by air without leaving the airport transit area is an exception.
As of October 16, all travelers coming from Italy, Liechtenstein, and Bulgaria must go on a mandatory quarantine upon arrival in Lithuania. These countries have been added to their list of COVID-19 high-risk countries.
