Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, Poland in March shut all schools, universities and nurseries as part of efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Elementary schools reopened to young children at the end of last month as the country lifted some COVID-19 safety measures.

But most Polish schools at all levels of education stayed shut until the end of the academic year, providing distance learning instead of in-person classes.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has said that the government is planning to reinstate full-time on-site schooling after the summer break ends on September 1, and that it wants students to return to universities on October 1 unless there are “very unexpected events.”

Meanwhile, Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak has declared that the military will help Polish children stay safe from the coronavirus during the summer break.

Soldiers from the country’s Territorial Defence Force (WOT) will be deployed to ensure health and safety for schoolchildren during scouting camps and various other recreational activities this summer, Błaszczak said at the start of this month.

A total of 33,119 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in Poland, with 1,412 deaths from the COVID-19 respiratory disease so far, public health officials said on Thursday.
