New Restrictions in Poland Due to COVID-19

From the 10th of October, the yellow zone will extend to the entire country. The obligation to cover the nose and mouth will apply in public spaces - in shops, buses, and also on the streets throughout the country. Only people who have a medical certificate or a document confirming their disability do not have to wear masks.

A new package of restrictions has been introduced, which is related to the escalation in the number of cases. In recent days, the number of new cases of coronavirus infection in Poland has increased dramatically.
