Only 21 percent Poles are in favour of stricter lockdown restrictions, while the vast majority prefer no changes or even a further loosening of them, a recent poll has shown.

According to the poll carried out by United Surveys for the newspaper Dziennik Gazeta Prawna and radio broadcaster RMF FM, 33.2 percent of respondents want restrictions to be eased, and 33.7 percent want them to be maintained at their current level.

Another 12.1 percent had no opinion on the matter, the study said.

The poll also asked the question what restrictions should be introduced first, if the government’s decision was to tighten them. In response 45.9 percent said an order to wear masks instead of other face coverings such as helmets, scarves and headscarves.

The respondents also stated the closure of shopping centres (20.3 percent), the closure of cinemas, theatres and museums (15.6 percent), ski slopes and other sports facilities (13.2 percent), the suspension of full-time education in grades I ? III (12.4 percent) as well as the closure of hotels (10 percent).

The survey was conducted on February 19 using the computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI) method on a representative national sample of 1,000 Poles 2021.
