It's easier to think of it on a smaller scale. Say you were a mining town on a remote mountain top. You can't shut down everything around the mine, the schools, the restaurants, the bars, the dentists, etc and then think the mine can continue to operate. The same would go the other way shut down the mine and there is no reason for all the support business. They have to have either extreme pressure on employees to ignore CDC advice and come to work even if exposed or at risk, or they will be experiencing worker shortages. So now the guy normally attaching this part is attaching that part or maybe 3 different parts. Maybe you cut back on some quality control and put those guys back on assembly. Maybe they do close the break and lunch rooms and again that is bad for worker productivity and quality. They also spend all day worried about how they had to leave their 10 year old home alone, etc. etc.
