everything is temporary, e.g. buildings, trees, even mountains, although the latter on a geological time scale. Not to speak of businesses. Things come an go, the question is where you draw the line. IMHO if something is not exceptionally important (read: to many people), a few weeks or months seem a reasonable period (read: you suppose that they last at least this long, naturally nobody can foresee the future). Frederik mentioned in a local forum that the DWG sees 6 months as a reasonable timespan for borders in areas with ongoing conflicts. 
IMHO, COVID19 related features are falling into the exceptional clause and could be mapped even if you expected them to last only 3 weeks (which is not the case in many areas).
