Is shopping safe 'n Woluve or c'ty center?

Question

My daughter needs some clothes but I am wondering if it is safe to shop in Woluve or in Rue Neve. How are they organized? Do we need to wa't long queues? IS there a revs system? I wonders how risky is it to be infected at the city center or at a closed shopping center like Woluve? Do the sales continue till Monday inclusive or longer? Any input on shopping is widely appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

Go and see. If you don't feel safe, come back.

Don't bother unless it's really necessary and not possible to buy online. If you really do have to go, go early (be there when shops open) and don't use public transport. Know exactly where you need to go and what you need, aim to be out within 30 mins. Ideally wear plastic gloves and a double mask. Don't use the public toilets, touch as little as possible and limit movements to the strict necessary. Once back in the car, put masks/gloves in sealed disposable bag and disinfect.

In addition to the above, I would advise wearing a hazmat suit although if you're going to be trying on clothes, factor in extra time.

I'm guessing that OPPRESSED hasn't got a daughter.
When my girl was only THREE she couldn't sort out chosing two pairs of socks in half an hour!
