COVID 19 - a new plan of the Polish government

As part of the work on combating CVID-19, the Government of the Republic of Poland prepared three draft regulations on restrictions, orders and bans in connection with the occurrence of the epidemic. These are three variants of restrictions that will be applied depending on the development of the situation. They concern:

  • the so-called the accountability stage (it will be valid from November 28 to December 27),
  • the stabilization stage, i.e. the return to the division of Poland into three new zones - red, yellow and green (from December 28 at the earliest - depending on the epidemic situation),
  • national quarantine (which will be introduced as a last resort, when it will be necessary to immediately and drastically reduce the transmission of the virus in society).

 

Responsibility stage - from November 28 to December 27

Shops in shopping malls with a sanitary regime

The persistently high number of COVID-19 cases does not allow for far-reaching lifting of restrictions and limitations. From November 28, however, the possibility of shops and services in shopping centers and retail parks will be restored under strict sanitary regime.

There will be a limit of people in shops and shopping malls - a maximum of 1 person. on 15 m2. Remember that in public spaces you have to cover your nose and mouth. When entering the store, disinfect your hands or use protective gloves during all shopping.

Winter holidays from 4 to 17 January
The study break across the country will last from January 4 to January 17, 2021 and will replace the previous winter holidays. However, this year's holiday will be different from the others. Children and youth will stay at home due to the prohibition of organizing trips for winter holidays.

The government supports the tourism industry. Entrepreneurs who operate in the winter tourism industry can also count on help. They will receive compensation to help ease the effects of the crisis.
