The COVID-19 pandemic was confirmed to have reached Lithuania in February 2020.

On 18 March 2020, the first domestic case was confirmed, the first infected being an immediate family member of a known case.[1] The first cases of community spread were found in the country on 19 March and the first related death happened on 20 March 2020.[2]

The Lithuanian government initially declared quarantine from 16 March to 30 March, but it was extended many times[3] and is set to end on 31 May.[4]
