I've been reading about Peru's strict rules about staying home during this time. It got me thinking about the the other parts of everyday life in Lima that I recall. Are families allowed to continue to employ domestic help in their homes?
Yes, if they can get a permit based on the care of someone old or ill. But many families choose not too, since it means someone coming and going into the home, and riskier still, a person who arrives on public transport - with all that that entails during a pandemic. Probably there are cases where housekeepers stay in the home and quarantine with the family they work for, but most folks I know are fending for themselves. The more consciencious ones continue to pay a salary, or at least a portion of the salary.
