Only a few companies in this area are operating, e.g, security and sanitary footwear manufacturers or firms with special exemptions.

As for footwear and clothing retail it has re-opened a week ago, with special prevention and control protocols approved by local authorities. Nevertheless, shopping malls and commercial galleries are still lockdown in the Buenos Aires area.
