  1. Outcome is the daily queries per canton and occupation. Other controls are dummies for: Days of the week, month, occupation, canton, year. The Stringency over time coefficient is estimated on a basis of 100 days. Shutdown 1 is defined as 16.03.–11.05.2020. Shutdown 2 is defined as 22.12.2020–28.02.2021. Columns (3) and (4) in Panel A are restricted until apprenticeships 2020 started in the beginning of September. *, **, and ***Marks statistical significance at the 5%, 1%, and 0.1% level
