The coronavirus pandemic (Wikipedia article) is causing disruptions affecting opening hours of many businesses and services, leading to changes in their opening hours to comply with government guidelines and regulations in addition to staffing changes.
The tag opening_hours:covid19=* aims to identify the opening hours of a business or service in the duration of the containment. It is based on the same semantics as opening_hours=* with some subtilities.
This tag is added to existing tags of a business or service. If opening_hours=* already exists, don't remove it and don't change the key to transform it into opening_hours:covid19=*. Instead, the right behaviour is to add a new tag opening_hours:covid19=*. It will be then easier to come back to "normal".
The following values are used to denote if a business or service is open, has modified opening hours or is closed during the containment:
|Type of schedule during the containment||Syntax||Comments|
(compared to usual opening hours)
|modified and explicitly known||
||Use same format as |
|modified but only approximately known or hard to describe||
||Describe the opening rules in description:covid19=*|
|open business or service with unknown opening hours, possibly modified compared to usual||
|closed business or service||
||Only if business is completely stopped (no takeaway, delivery or drive-through)|
- capacity:covid19=* to indicate the maximum number of persons allowed at the same time in the place (information for the general public)
- description:covid19=* for details about the terms of access to the service (information for the general public)
- note=* or note:covid19=* for information to other OSM contributors
Important : Don't add :covid19 to existing tags, create new entries ending with :covid19 to ease the move back to the previous, normal situation.
