antonknee: A lot of people (in general, not specifically here on GZ) seem to be forgetting or misunderstanding the entire point of the lockdown - to reduce contact between people to the bare minimum. Hence only essential business (basic food, medicine) and their supply chains being open.
You're also forgetting that the country simply cannot fully shut down. There are hundreds of thousands of people right now working from home. This is not a holiday - life and business has to continue and the country has to keep running. Lots of people working from home in many ways are just as important as somebody working in an essential business - they are people keeping the country going.
Finding the balance with services such as couriers is difficult - as we see an increasing number of online booze sales as an example should how should couriers prioritise goods?
As above. This is not a forced holiday. Companies should close offices and people should work from home. If they can't work from home and not essential services, the companies can apply for a wage subsidy and keep their jobs - paid vacation or something.
If you are not a home-based business and need to access a warehouse to ship goods then you shouldn't be working - it's not essential and you'd obviously have to move around to go to work.
That would defeat everything. The idea is to STAY HOME.
If someone can't get their gym equipment, improvise. It's not essential.
