In connection with the upcoming holidays and the Omicron mutation, Health Minister Adam Niedzielski announced the new epidemic restrictions during a special press conference on 7 December. Occupancy rates in restaurants, bars and hotels will be lowered from the current 50% to 30% from 15 December. Discotheques, clubs and venues providing places to dance will also be closed. Increasing this limit, as before, will still be possible – only for people vaccinated and verified by the operator.
The current 50% occupancy rate in restaurants, bars and hotels will be replaced by a 30% limit
The latest steps in the fight against the pandemic also include:
- Changes in the organization of vaccinations so that vaccination points located in large shopping malls can vaccinate without prior appointment.
- Work on the bill, on which the Ministry is working together with the Law and Justice party and consists in entitling the employer to expect the employee to show the test result – these will be quick antigen tests, for free. Employees will be able to sign up for the free test through a form that the ministry has promised to introduce on its website. The minister stressed that in this case, there will be no obligation to undergo a default quarantine, as there is in the case of referral by a doctor. The rules for verification of vaccination certificates still need to be regulated before the law comes into force.
- Mandatory vaccinations for three professional groups – medics, teachers and uniformed services. This obligation should come into force on 1 March.
