Less restrictions for the Low Risk

Greater freedom of movement for the low risk is essential for the economy. Travel corridors and testing at borders could stimulate vital areas of the economy.

Why the contribution is important

Locking down and quaranting the healthy stifles the economy further, at a time when stimulus is required. Quarantining virus free returning UK citizens defeats the very purpose of opening up, when there could be Heath tests at pivotal points of entry and exit.

    Given the type of pandemic that this is, the risk has always been not necessarily about whether you are low risk/ get ill, but whether you transmit the disease to those who are high risk . I don't see how this can work.

    The main issue has not really been about how you take the disease yourself, but transmission to others and that for me is where the problem still lies. Even if you are low risk and less likely to contract Covid-19, you may still pass it on to someone who is high risk.

    This shows zero awareness of the need to reduce transmission. Stupidity on stilts.

    Given that people can be symptom free for several days, unless daily testing could be undertaken on those entering, then quarantining seems the safest route until we get a vaccine or a known medication which alleviates symptoms.

    Who decides who is “low risk”? I am not aware of any age being at less of a risk when it comes to Covid19. You may feel well enough but could be a carrier, spreading it around blissfully unaware of the risk to others.

    People that have been considered 'low risk' have died from this virus. No one is safe from it so all precautions should be take everyone into account otherwise it could spread like wildfire again
