This is now the official government position. Wearing scarves, shawls, neck warmer or face shields do not protect against COVID-19 infection. The government recommends wearing surgical masks.
From Saturday, we’ll only cover our face with a mask! Moreover?
The Health Minister said that the number of tests ordered across the country has increased by 24% in recent times, with more than 60,000 tests for COVID-19 performed yesterday. As a result, the restrictions currently in place have been extended until March 14 and several new rules have been introduced. For example, from 27 February it will be compulsory to cover the mouth and nose with masks. It has been reported that all types of masks can be worn, but the wearing of surgical masks is recommended. Wearing scarves, shawls, neck warmer or face shields will no longer be recognised as complying with the obligation to cover mouth and nose from COVID-19 infection in public spaces.
Also from Saturday, people arriving from the Czech Republic and Slovakia will have to undergo quarantine. The change does not apply to people who have been vaccinated with two doses of the vaccine and those who have a negative test result for COVID-19. In addition, due to the worrying increase in COVID-19 cases in the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, previously in place restrictions have been introduced there, including closed hotels, shopping malls, cinemas, theatres, museums, galleries, swimming pools, tennis courts, and distance learning for pupils in primary school classes I-III will return.
