The person obliged to undergo quarantine cannot leave the place of residence or stay; Foreigner can do it only for the purpose of hospitalization or with the consent of the sanitary inspector.

You might thought about how to avoid quarantine period...
Interesting fact:

Thousands of foreigners were taking studying programs before coming to Poland in order to avoid quarantine period, even they were planing not to study here but work. But the crisis made us more hard-studying and educated people, isn't it? Good. Now the education system will filter free-visitors and, guess, for summer semester 50% of students will be excluded because of non-attendence.
