They demand a reduction in the price of masks
Consumer protection organization Codacons is seeking to reduce the prices of FFP2 masks required for all transportation. They should also be worn by fully vaccinated people who have been in contact with infected people. The association noted that the price of masks has recently increased by as much as 225 per cent to around three euros per head (about 14 zlotys). In the opinion of the organization, the price, which has been officially reduced to one euro, which will be announced, will also be a heavy burden for many families.
