As of 10 May, the current system of exemptions allowing the most important retail segments has ended. All retailers can open again, the reduction of a range of products and markets has also ended, the range of services has been significantly expanded. On the same date, other groups of pupils and students have returned to schools for full-time classes.

It is no longer mandatory to wear a mask or a respirator outside where it is possible to keep the maximum number of two people on less than two meters. In inside premises, wearing respirators is still needed.

Restaurants have to continue to do without customers and the same applies, with some exceptions, also to hotels and other accommodation facilities. Swimming pools, fitness centres, etc. remain closed. 

Regular weekly testing of UP employees and students continues. Details.
