In March Poland closed its borders to foreigners to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

However, it has been progressively loosening restictions on public life, with shopping centres, hotels and restaurants all reopening in May.

Germany will lift border controls with Switzerland, France, Austria and Denmark on June 15, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said on Wednesday (June 10), adding the government would reconsider if the coronavirus situation deteriorates.
