While the majority of high street firms in Norfolk and Waveney have been forced to close, those permitted to remain open are doing their best to maintain 'business as usual'.
Our images from Diss feature some of the essential traders still serving customers amid the third coronavirus lockdown.
Many are welcoming people into their stores - wearing face coverings, of course - while others are performing transactions at their doorways.
Diss Publishing Bookshop and Cafe, for example, is offering a click and collect service on Mere Street from 10am to 2pm, Monday to Saturday.
Meanwhile, Parson Estate Agents, based on Victoria Road, is making the most of being open.
