If she is in favour of lockdown to prevent spread of disease, she is free to close her shop without government intervention - there's no need for a forced lockdown or a bailout.

Lockdowns can happen without a financial bailout. From your post, you stated the motivation was the money to be able to continue paying staff without being open. So yes, that is a bailout.
She can't continue to pay the staff while being open due to the government restrictions and lack of customers. She also can't afford to close her business. They need help, which is precisely what the government should be doing, protecting their citizens and businesses ... they are doing neither.

What planet are you on? The kind where money is readily available? Usually the first to scoff at hard working people asking for help...
