From December, 15 Poland will tighten the rules for entry from countries outside the Schengen area.

Until December 15, Ukrainians and other travelers from outside the Schengen zone must go through a 14-day quarantine after crossing the border with Poland. Children under 12 years of age under the care of vaccinated adults and adults are exempted from quarantine if they have a certificate of a full course of vaccination or a certificate of recovery from COVID-19, which was received no earlier than six months before crossing the border.

Polish Health Minister Adam Nedzelski also noted that from December 15, Poland will strengthen quarantine inside the country.

The following rules will apply:

In public transport, it is allowed to occupy two-thirds of the free seats.
The number of visitors in swimming pools, water parks, restaurants, hotels, as well as in cultural facilities will be reduced from 50% to 30%.
Fewer people will be in shops, gyms, fitness clubs, museums, fairs and exhibitions - 1 person per 15 square meters is allowed.
Discos and clubs will be closed, but on December 31 and January 1, parties will be allowed there for a maximum of 100 people.

The tightening of restrictions is associated with the spread of the Omicron coronavirus strain.
