It makes more sense for us to avoid places where there are lots of other people.
I received an urgent request for assistance from Scottish Government to a remote part of the country to supply a member of staff to set up medical equipment that had been rushed to the area as part if the Covid response.
These remote areas are fragile and must be protected.
I think that they can be protected if the regime we all know well by now is observed though. A couple of self-supporting (in the main, reading the article) travellers like this are in themselves likely to be low risk in terms of infection, and tbh are unlikely to result in an influx of individuals copy-catting, I'd have thought.
That regime is not being well observed though.
You’re thoughts also differ from mine.
Ok we won’t get copycats doing LEJOG, especially at this time of year, but it will encourage travel to those areas where even a small outbreak would be potentially disastrous for some.
