The Polish government on Wednesday or Thursday will announce its first decisions on loosening the coronavirus restrictions that are in place, government spokesperson Piotr Muller told Polish Radio Three on Tuesday.

Muller added that the first decisions would be made as soon as the government receives the latest data on coronavirus from the Easter period.

He also said that Poland would probably first lift restrictions in stores and on movement in public spaces, for example, bans on entry to forests.

According to Muller, the full schedule of the loosened restrictions will be adopted this week and their specific stages will be announced one week in advance.
