From Saturday, Poland eases restrictions on the number of spectators present at open air events, including stadiums, increasing the maximum percentage of occupied seats to 50 percent from 25 percent, according to a Culture Ministry communique.

If there are no designated seats, the minimum distance between spectators has been reduced to 1 metre from 1.5 metres. Members of the public present at outdoor events are still required to cover their mouths and noses.
