The closure of service facilities, shopping malls, cinemas, theaters and restaurants will be extended until April 19, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said. Schools will be closed longer – at least till April 26.
“We are extending all anti-coronavirus regulations because, as confirmed by foreign and domestic experts, they are working well,” the head of government said.
On the other hand, until May 3, the closing of the borders is in force (the right to cross the Polish border is still held by, among others, Polish citizens, foreigners who are spouses or children of Polish citizens, persons who have the right of permanent or temporary residence in Poland or a work permit), and also a mandatory quarantine for people crossing the border with Poland.
Until further notice, it is forbidden to organize mass events and gatherings.
The Prime Minister and the Minister of National Education also announced that the eighth-year and matriculation exams will be postponed, most likely to the second half of June.
