Polish hotels may be able to open again, under a strict sanitary regime, from February 14, the deputy prime minister and development minister said on Thursday.

Jaroslaw Gowin told PAP: "We're also analysing the situation as it relates to other sectors," and added that additional reopenings may be recommended in the near future.

The minister stated decisions would be made "definitely by the end of this week, most probably by Friday."

Gowin noted that thanks to the restrictions which were introduced after Christmas, it was possible to "systematically reduce the level of Covid-19 infections."
