Mateusz Morawiecki told an online press conference that despite calls from various sectors, the government decided to follow epidemiologistsʼ advice and extend the lockdown in the gastronomy, culture and fitness sectors.

However, he also added that shopping malls are to reopen under strict sanitary regulations and with customer limits on November 28. Schools across Poland are to be shut, with online distance learning provided until at least December 23.

The government will announce its further decisions concerning the countryʼs education system after that date, Morawiecki said.
