05 May 2020
1 April 2020 was the effective date of the Act of 31 March 2020 amending the Act on special solutions to prevent, combat and counteract COVID-19, other infectious diseases and the resulting crisis situations, as well as certain other acts, which introduced the solutions proposed as part of the so-called crisis shield (hereinafter “the COVID-19 Act”). The Act has already been amended twice. The fi rst amendments were introduced by virtue of the Act of 9 April 2020 on the special instruments of assistance in connection with the spread of SARS-CoV-2 (so-called shield 2.0) and introduced several modifi cations to the earlier solutions by widening, among others, the group of those eligible for state assistance.
The second is the Act of 30 April 2020 amending certain acts with regard to protective measures in connection with the spread of SARS-CoV-2 (so-called shield 3.0), which is currently being worked on by the Sejm. We are presenting the most signifi cant changes arising out of the shield 3.0 act, as well as the newest explanations provided on the above acts by ZUS and the ministry of finance.
