Column by Gui Oliveira

Yes, everyone is encouraged to stay home and only go out for the essentials, which can be summed up in three categories: work, grocery shopping and exercise. And while it’s imperative to stay safe inside your home, the unfortunate reality is that local businesses are suffering when daily life means being cooped up inside.
