Easter has always been a popular time for a short break to visit family and friends, or simply enjoy a quick holiday by the sea. Easter usually co-incides with school holidays, however frazzled home-schooling parents will be unable to enjoy even a brief holiday this year under COVID-19 restrictions.
Easter this year will be a “staycation”, with authorities around the world enforcing strict travel bans which effectively cancel Easter holidays.
In Australia, residents have been told to cancel all travel plans, with hefty fines handed out to tourists who flout the social distancing laws.
Similarly, French authorities are setting up road blocks in a bid to stem the usual exodus to seaside and country areas.
