Setting priorities

The epidemiological data may place limitations on what the state authorities can do, but they do not mandate their priorities.

It is up to the government to decide which of the lockdown restrictions will be lifted first.

That said, the administration decided to reopen the retail sector before allowing high school students return to the classroom.

However, it is hard to understand the hierarchy of values according to which government officials are mulling the reopening of the country’s ski resorts.
