For indoor events, the two-meter distance requirement may be waived provided that their attendees wear face masks during the whole event.

For outdoor events, the attendees are required to keep a distance of at least one meter from one another.

Further easing of audience restrictions had not yet been approved, Lina Businskaite, spokeswoman for the Lithuanian health minister, told BNS.

Promostar, an event management company, will not organize any public events in July and the nearest concerts – the events of the festival ‘Untold City’ that will be organized in open spaces in Vilnius and Kaunas – will be held in August.

“We do not hold any public events now. The nearest public event will be on August 18,” Vytautas Lebednykas, the company’s project manager, told BNS.

Indoor events were not being organized due to stringent requirements and high uncertainty, he added.

Linas Zareckas, a performer and CEO of event management company Motiventti, told BNS that companies also seemed reluctant to hold any events at present.

“These are the global trends – all tours have been called off, performances have been called off and there are no concerts anywhere,” he said adding that easing of audience restrictions had no impact on his business.

Faced with the threat of coronavirus, Lithuania on March 16 introduced a nationwide lockdown, which was lifted on June 17, leaving certain restrictions in place.
