On Saturday, Jan Filip Libicki, a senator with the rural-based Polish People’s Party (PSL), revealed he had contracted the coronavirus.
In response to the news, upper-house Speaker Tomasz Grodzki told reporters a day later that a Senate session originally scheduled for this week would be moved to next week.
On Monday, two other opposition senators, Artur Dunin from the Civic Coalition (KO) and the PSL’s Ryszard Bober, announced they had tested positive for COVID-19.
Meanwhile, PSL lawmaker Dariusz Klimczak, a member of the lower house of Poland’s parliament, has also become infected, state news agency PAP reported on Tuesday.
The infections come as Poland’s newly re-elected President Andrzej Duda is scheduled to be sworn into his second term in office before both houses of Poland’s parliament on Thursday.
