In Poland, restrictions have been tightened to combat the spread of the coronavirus, TASS reports, citing Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
According to him, the Polish authorities want to introduce restrictions that will protect against the spread of coronavirus, but "the economy will function to a large extent."
The prime minister asked everyone who can work remotely to work from home.
At the end of summer, the Polish authorities switched to a regional principle of responding to the spread of coronavirus and introduced a system of zones of three colors. “Red zone” - regions where a large number of cases have been identified and severe restrictions are imposed there, “yellow zone”, where there are less severe restrictions, and “green zone”, where the epidemiological situation is relatively stable. Since Saturday, the government has assigned all regions of the country to the "yellow zone".
It is noted that restaurants in the "yellow zone" will be open from 06:00 to 21:00, the operation of swimming pools and water parks is suspended. Higher educational institutions and secondary schools are switching to a mixed mode of operation. From October 19, weddings and other family celebrations are allowed with a limited number of participants - up to 25 people.
According to the latest data, 149 thousand infected have been identified in Poland, 3.3 thousand have died.
