Lithuania imposes tough restrictions on people without COVID passports
Now people without vaccinations, tests or antibodies will face a number of restrictions, in particular, they will not be able to visit shopping centers and cafes, as well as use a number of services.
In Lithuania, on September 13, severe restrictions came into force for people without a “passport of opportunity” – a document indicating a vaccination against coronavirus, a previous illness or a negative COVID test. About it informs Delfi on Monday 13 September.
The restrictions will not apply to people with a “passport of opportunity”, but they are still asked to regularly disinfect their hands, maintain social distance and wear masks.
At the same time, people without a COVID passport will not be able to get to shops with non-essential goods, to shopping centers, to markets if their area exceeds 1,500 square meters, to cafes and restaurants inside. They will not be able to use the services of beauty salons, go to sports clubs, to events with the participation of more than 500 people.
Without a “passport of opportunity”, you can go to grocery stores and grocery markets, to stores with goods for animals, to pharmacies, optical stores, to orthopedic salons, to stores selling plants, seeds, fertilizers – but only to those that are not in shopping centers, or which have a separate entrance, and their area is not more than 1500 square meters. Also, without a covid passport, you can order food to go, get services in bars and cafes on summer terraces, use the services of gas stations, small repair shops, get services from a funeral service bureau, visit libraries, museums, exhibitions, receive social, legal and necessary services in government institutions and municipal institutions, to visit patients in serious condition, pregnant women and minors, to receive social services.
In addition, the “passport of opportunity” is not needed in public transport. In this case, all passengers must wear masks and keep their distance. On intercity routes and on charter flights, only seating should be taken.
In turn, students of universities, colleges, and people who attend courses for adults can go to contact classes without hindrance only with a “passport of opportunities”.
Finally, people who do not have a “passport of opportunity” should be regularly tested – so far, thetas are doing it for free.
We will remind that earlier in Israel they started talking about herd immunity from COVID… The country has a high incidence rate and vaccination rate at the same time. This situation in the near future will lead to the fact that the majority of residents will acquire immunity from the coronavirus.
