Here's the latest compilation of coronavirus updates from readers, organizations and companies.
"On behalf of everybody at Baldwin's, I sincerely hope that the last couple of months have not been too trying for you and your hobbies have given you plenty of reason to smile.
"Following the Government's most recent announcements, I am very pleased to be able to update you on our plans for reopening our new and much-improved store at 399 Strand, while doing all we can to keep both our customers and staff safe.
"From June 15th we will be open for people to visit us by pre-arranged appointment, followed two weeks later on June 29th by the full opening of all three floors of the building. This includes our new Baldwin's coin room and display areas as well as a completely new shop on the ground floor.
"We are very excited by this but rest assured, we will be implementing a range of measures to keep everybody safe including the use of floor markers, hand sanitiser, plastic screens and additional cleaning. We will also continue to minimise staff levels on site while doing all we can to offer you the very best level of service."
Lithuania Mints Pandemic Coin
"Lithuania began minting a collector's coin, dubbed a "coin of hope", on Wednesday to mark the year of the new coronavirus and pay tribute to doctors, nurses and others who helped the country weather the pandemic.
"The coin has the phrase "after darkness, I hope for light" written around its edge in Latin. It features a shaft of light illuminating the year 2020 and spelling out SOS, the international distress signal, in shadow.
"We wanted to say 'thank you' to the medics, the medical workers, public transport drivers, to thank teachers who worked at a distance, the shop workers and those who stayed in self- isolation and kept the virus from spreading," said Asta Kuniyoshi, deputy governor of Lithuania's central bank."
