Tougher Quarantine Rules Are Taking Effect on Tuesday for People Traveling to Poland

WARSAW, Poland — Tougher new quarantine rules are taking effect on Tuesday for people traveling to Poland as the country struggles with a massive surge in coronavirus infections and hospitalizations.

Travelers entering Poland from other parts of the European Union’s Schengen area are now required to quarantine for 10 days unless they can present a negative COVID-19 test taken within the previous two days.

Those arriving outside the Schengen area must quarantine for 10 days and can be released from that only if they take a test on arrival and get a negative result.

The new rules are tougher than earlier ones that had been applied since Dec. 28.

The earlier restrictions applied to people arriving in the country using mass transportation but not those arriving in private cars or on foot.

The new regulations will apply to all arrivals.
