Under the new rules, employers would be able to instruct employees to work from home in an effort to prevent the spread of the new Covid-19 virus.
The law introduces a special allowance for parents who are forced to stay home and take care of their children if a nursery, kindergarten or school closes amid coronavirus fears.
The new rules also aim to relax construction regulations to enable authorities to more easily build hospitals and other medical facilities as part of efforts to contain the spread of the virus.
Meanwhile, the health minister would be able to set maximum prices for some medical supplies and products needed to counteract the coronavirus.
In a rare display of non-partisan cooperation, both the ruling conservative party and the opposition voted to support the new measures on Monday.
A total of 400 MPs were in favour of the legislation, while 11 opposed it and seven abstained, Poland's PAP news agency reported.
The bill now goes to the Senate, the upper house of Poland's parliament, for further debate.
