Seems no sense to me closing butchers, bakers, and vege shops. It puts too much strain on supermarkets, They make enough money any day! Rules can be applied to keep it safe. There's more to gain than lose surely if they stay open..
During Alert level 3 put your tags on to ensure your bin is emptied.
BUY – rubbish bin tags at your local supermarket
TAG – attach a new bin tag to your bin before placing it at kerbside for collection
COLLECT – only bins with tags on will be emptied on collection day
