The majority of COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted on March 1, but the requirement to wear face masks in enclosed public venues will remain, according to Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

The news: “After medical consultations and watching what’s happening in other countries we can introduce far-reaching changes in our restrictions policy. We can remove restrictions that have been with us for many months,” Morawiecki told reporters.

  • While face masks will be required in public locations such as shops and transit, there will be no restrictions on the number of individuals allowed into businesses, restaurants, or cultural venues.
  • Clubs and discotheques will be allowed to reopen, and government agencies will no longer function remotely, according to the administration.
  • “More and more countries are removing restrictions, while encouraging people to vaccinate. We are removing most restrictions today, while leaving in place the most needed ones,” Morawiecki said.

Facts and figures: On Wednesday, Poland recorded 20,456 new infections and 360 COVID-related deaths.

  • According to estimates from the health ministry, over 110,000 individuals have died as a result of the pandemic.
  • Nearly 66 per cent of the adult population has been fully vaccinated, making it one of the least vaccinated countries in the European Union.
