Last Thursday we had a press conference lead by our Prime Minister – Ms Morawiecki. They announced several changes from 12.02 due to the pandemic state in Poland. Here you can find some short resume, first good news! Here you can find a list of places that will be open with 50% of its capacity.

  • hotels (yay! We can travel again for long distances!)
  • swimming pools
  • ski stations
  • theatres and cinema halls
  • sports fields, courts and amateur forms of practising sports are allowed, without the participation of the public and with the exception of closed pitches and halls.
  • shopping centres are open with sanitary restrictions

What’s more, there is no “senior hours” since the last 2 weeks. It was quite irritating as I always forgot about it, so I’m really relief it’s over.

Unfortunately, this places are remain closed until further notice:

  • restaurants, pubs, cafes – operating only on take-out and delivery orders
  • fitness and gym facilities – only one-to-one personal training and rehab facilities are open

Covering the mouth and nose in public spaces is obligatory throughout the entire country.

Cover yourself 😉

Where is it not mandatory to cover your mouth and nose? In forests, parks, green squares, botanical gardens, historic gardens, family community gardens and on beaches as well as while travelling by private car.


There is obligatory 10-days self-quarantine for all who have crossed the Polish border (which is both external and internal EU border) by plane, bus or other means of collective transport.

IMPORTANT for all incoming students for the second semester: Obligatory quarantine does not apply to all students, postgraduate students and specialists education students studying in Poland, as well as all doctoral students and researchers carrying out academic activities in our country.
