In Lithuania, the rules for obtaining a "passport of opportunity" and the rules for wearing masks in schools, introduced due to the Covid-19 pandemic, have changed since December 1, Delfi reports.

To obtain a "passport of opportunity" you need to take a PCR test. A negative test result will be valid for 72 hours from the time of sampling. Only pregnant women and people who cannot get vaccinated for medical reasons can take the "passport of opportunity" test free of charge.

The Lithuanian Ministry of Health has established a procedure for preventive testing of employees at its own expense, and it is no longer possible to take these tests at mobile points. Exceptions have been introduced for a group of people working in socially important areas who will continue to be paid by the state for testing. Workers should be tested for Covid-19 every 7-10 days. They must take PCR tests or antigen tests.

Pregnant women and other people who cannot be vaccinated against Covid-19 for medical reasons can get tested for free in mobile points.

In addition, Lithuanian primary school students must wear masks during lessons. Masks should be bought and given to them by their parents. For those children who do not have a mask, it will be issued from a special reserve.

Earlier it was reported that in Lithuania, citizens under the age of 75 who vaccinate against Covid-19 by December of 2021 will be paid a monetary reward of one hundred euros.
