Quarantine of fifteen days for travelers arriving from France. This is what Lithuania will impose from Monday following an upsurge in coronavirus cases in that country, the EU's Baltic state's chief epidemiologist Loreta Asokliene said on Friday.

France was included on Friday on a list of countries "affected" by the pandemic which reached the rate of 16 new confirmed contaminations per 100,000 inhabitants over the last fifteen days, she told journalists.

Other EU countries

France has therefore joined other EU countries on this list: Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Portugal, Romania, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Luxembourg, Croatia, Malta and Austria. Vilnius airport is connected by regular flights with Paris and Nice, operated by the airlines airBaltic, Wizzair and Ryanair.
