Poland's ban on international rail travel and the 14-day quarantine period for persons arriving in the country have been prolonged until further notice by a government directive issued on Sunday.

The directive changes an earlier regulation instituting the rail travel ban and quarantine obligation for those entering the country until April 26.

The directive also lifts the obligation to wear protective gloves in shops and service points for persons unable to handle gloves by themselves or forbidden to wear them for health and mental disability reasons.

Also, public administration staff dealing with customers will be able to use visors instead of face masks if their workplace is separated from their clients by protective shielding.
