Amid a rise in new COVID-19 cases throughout the Balkans in recent weeks, Lithuania has added another two states in the region, Montenegro and Serbia, to its list of countries arrivals from which are required to self-isolate., informs LETA/BNS.

North Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina remain on the Lithuanian Health Ministry's updated list of the most affected countries.
