People fleeing from the armed conflict in Ukraine exempt from quarantine.
Due to the invasion of the Russian Federation on Ukraine and due to the fact that a great number of people had to flee from the ensuing armed conflict, a Regulation of the Council of Ministers of 24 February 2022 amending the regulation on implementing certain restrictions, requirements, and prohibitions in view of the state of epidemics (Journal of Laws of 2022, item 462), the obligation to be quarantined for 7 days or to present a negative COVID test was abolished for people crossing the border between Ukraine and Poland. The regulation became effective as of 25 February 2022.
The exemption was prolonged under a Regulation of the Council of Ministers of 25 February 2022 on introducing certain restrictions, requirements, and prohibitions in view of the state of epidemics (Journal of Laws of 2022, item 473) which became effective as of 28 February 2022.
The current legal regulations are to remain in force until 31 March 2022 and apply to all people crossing the border between Poland and Ukraine in connection with the armed conflict on the territory of the latter (§ 2, point 45 of the Regulation of 25 February 2022).
