There are many businesses run by may friends which are closed because they are not considered essential. As far as businesses are concern, there is not such thing as non-essential business. Regardless of the business type, when they are closed, they create huge amount void to our society. Not to mention the amount of jobs that are lost.
We often thank all the people who work at healthcare sectors fighting COVID-19, but we also have thank everybody trying to keep themselves health so that we do not overwhelm the medical system.
We are all in this together. Let's give everybody including ourselves a cheers. Good job everyone.
