Germany embarked on a so-called “wave-breaker” shutdown on Nov. 2, shutting restaurants, bars, sports and leisure facilities but leaving schools, shops and hair salons open. It was initially slated to last four weeks. Proposals drawn up ahead of Wednesday’s videoconference call for extending the shutdown until Dec. 20.
