 The sunny and warm weather over the weekend has brought the tourists back to popular destinations in Poland as further restrictions, introduced in mid-March to curb the spread of COVID-19, are relaxed. Among others the cable car to Kasprowy Peak has resumed operating.  

 This past week hotels were allowed to reopen, as well as shopping galleries, preschools, kindergartens and outdoor sports areas. Over the weekend, the Polish rail service PKP restored many of its connections, among others to Warsaw, Kraków and the Tricity. But borders still remain closed.

 Gatherings continue to be banned, and Poles have to cover nose and mouth when in public.

 Polish Health Minister Łukasz Szumowski announced on Saturday that further decisions regarding the so-called third stage of lifting restrictions as of May 18 will be made at the start of the week. Next to reopen would be hair and beauty salons, and restaurants.
