    • Borders to the country are all closed down.
    • Citizens are strongly encouraged to practice social distancing.
    How do you decide what is a non-essential company? A couple months ago I'll bet that few would have listed grocery stores. But now they are one of the few business that are allowed to stay open in Italy which has a near complete lock down.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Stores were listed as among the essential companies. I can't remember the exact list but transporation, energy sector, medical personal, police, ... I remember the Army isolating their soldiers on the bases for now, so that they would be battle ready all the way through the Corona outbreak. There's also elder care, those were listed as among essentials. Beyond that it is something you take up for discussion with your local government. So far everyone have been making very reasonable decisions in my opinion.

    My little sister is a nurse at one of the hospitals that have been dedicated to recieve Covid-19 patients, they did a pretty thorough reorganization over the weekend.

    As she says it right now, it is a very quiet hospital with the whole nursing staff being in a constant mode of readiness, just waiting for the influx of patients. They and all the doctors are expecting a huge inflow eventually.

    I'll assume you meant grocery stores and not all stores since I can't fathom that something like a party supply store would be considered essential.

    The cocktail bar we had planned at the end of this month was cancelled, along with all the friday bars. I hope the Sherlock Holmes Pub survives.

    These closings could be the death knell for numerous small businesses.

    Movie theaters, museums, bars, restaurants, cafes are taking a huge hit.

    The politicians are okay with the sacrifice of small business.

    No, they are not, that is your irrational paranoia speaking. The politicians are aware of the impact of the policies enacted to contain the epidemic.

    The real question is, just how valuable is human life? (and how valuable is human life for the pro life Christian?)

    Very important. It is Christ who has offered life and life more abundantly.
