In Poland, an agreement could be reached between the government and companies in the service sector to ease restrictions, Writes napi.hu.
The compromise may be due to the fact that companies have been threatening the government for some time to open up despite sanctions due to their difficult economic situation.

In recent days, the number of demonstrators has increased and more people have opened their stores, risking a fine of up to 30,000 zlotys (2.4 million forint).
Marcin Mączyński, secretary of the Polish Chamber of Commerce for Hotels (IGHP), announced over the weekend successful talks with government representatives.

Deputy Minister of Development, Labor and Technology, Olga Semenyuk, explained that the new regulations will be developed in the days leading up to the end of January. These will primarily regulate the distance, the number of hand sanitizers, who will have to oversee the current regulations and how.
