Déjà-vu?
The new lockdown starting today will see more businesses remaining open than last March, as well as schools, parks gardens, forests and beaches, making one wonder how effective it will be.
Restaurants, cafés, bars, museums, monuments, cinémas and theaters/public entertainment and sports venues seem to be considered the main culprits, so they will be closed. Businesses deemed "non-essential" such as coiffures and boutiques selling clothing will also be closed but food shops, banks, hardware stores, dry cleaning and computer, car and motorcycle repair shops and of course tabacs will stay open.
