Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced on 24 March 2020 a series of procedures being implemented in the face of the global Covid-19 crisis.

These include:

  • A complete ban on gatherings in public squares, playgrounds, streets, parks;
  • Restrictions on public transport – passengers need to leave a gap of two seats between each other;
  • Ban on public gatherings of three people or more;
  • Current shopping centre restrictions remain in place;
  • The government will be implementing a national support mechanism, the so-called ‘Anti-crisis shield’;
  • When moving around, people should keep a minimum distance of 1.5 metres from each other;
  • A mobile application to be introduced for checking if quarantined people remain at home.

The above will remain in place until 11 April 2020.
