Poland as a whole becomes a "Yellow Zone"

Gelbe Zone" im ganzen Land
Żółta strefa w Szczecinie

By decision of the Council of Ministers, starting on 10 October 2020 (Saturday), restrictions applicable to "Yellow Zones" will be enforced nationwide. The only exceptions are "Red Zones" – districts with the greatest numbers of COVID-19 cases. This means that covering your mouth and nose will now be compulsory across the country.

The City of Szczecin stays in regular contact with the Sanitary and Epidemiological Service (SANEPID), and will continue to follow its guidelines – this applies to city events and institutions of culture. Moreover, Municipal Police will be patrolling the City to remind residents about these new restrictions using public address systems. Dear residents, please use your good judgement and act responsibly. This is the only way for us to avoid becoming a Red Zone, where restrictions are much stricter.
