Montenegro on Monday temporarily banned foreign nationals from entering the country if they are not permanent residents or bringing in goods, the Beta news agency said citing a statement from the National Coordination Body for Infectious Diseases.

The government has ordered all clubs, restaurants and bars closed as well as playrooms and fitness centers for at least two weeks but did not shut down food deliveries.  

So far, Montenegro is the only European country which has not reported any coronavirus cases but 638 people are being monitored according to the Public Health Institute.  

The government Coordination body has also limited the number of shoppers in a store at any one time to 50 and the number of people at open air markets to 100. Anyone allowed into the country will be ordered into home quarantine for two weeks.  

Earlier, the government closed schools and universities, banned public gatherings and visits to hospitals and jails as well as travel to seven countries in Europe.
