On 31 March 2020 the Senate adopted a draft amendment to special act regarding COVID-19 which is part of the so called Anti–Crisis Shield in which a scheme of temporary suspension of tenancy, lease or other similar agreements was proposed for the time over which restrictions on trade will apply. The Act is now to be adopted by the Sejm (the lower house of the Polish Parliament) and then signed by the President of the Republic of Poland. The Act is expected to come into force as of 1 April 2020.

Due to the state of the epidemic threat, common courts, administrative courts and the Supreme Court are limiting their activities. In the courts, direct customer service has been suspended and reduced to telephone and electronic contact. This means that access for review of court files has been limited. Hearings have also been canceled in most courts until 31th March 2020, except for urgent cases. The list of urgent cases is indicated in the orders of the courts’ presidents.
