From Wednesday, November 18, the government introduced a limit on the number of people present in stores at the same time to further decrease the number of new COVID-19 cases. This was decided by the government on Monday, November 16, after photos of stores like Lidl being packed with people started circulating on social media. At the same time, opening hours of stores were extended to 9:00 PM so everyone would be able to do their grocery shopping.
A set of new countermeasures was announced by the Minister of Health Roman Prymula on Thursday, October 8. Some of them come into force on Friday, October 9, the rest of them will apply from Monday, October 12. Most of them concern leisure activities, although restrictions affecting shopping or education were announced as well.
