Don't use Highlands as a test

Given the recent out break of the virus on the Isle of Skye it truly highlights that the Highlands should not be a trial area for earlier reduction in the lock down measures. With this area having a high number of the older generation this could be detrimental to their health and life.

Whilst rates have been lower in the Highlands, as we have seen this can easily and very rapidly change. Lockdown should be reduced in a phased approach across the whole country and not use remote areas as trials for how it will work elsewhere.

Why the contribution is important

It is important to the families living in the Highlands that they are not "Guinea pigs" to reduction in lockdown. Decisions should be nationwide to ensure a consistent approach that members of the public are all clear on the expectations.

    I disagree I think that allowing the whole highland region to travel would help many tourism business without putting stress on NHS Highland as they would be getting served by it anyway.
