Limit tourism

Scotland receives hundreds of thousands of tourists from many countries every year. It is vital that there is not a premature ending of restrictions of travel to areas where the effect of an infection could be devastating. All the sacrifice could be in vain with one traveller from abroad going to a rural area, or one second home owner going back to the holiday home, or one camper van touring and spreading the virus.

Why the contribution is important

Scotland's rural areas could suffer disproporionately because of the high average of the population, and because of limited health services.

    I don't like tourists as we don't have the infrastructure to support them, see any road in the Highlands June to September for proof. However tourist income is very important to the Highlands in particular, so I'll overlook my own dislike for the greater good. Hopefully by the time the tourists come back the response to CV will be more advanced and it will be easier to identify, vaccinate, treat etc.

    I agree. It is far too early to let the tourists in. We can’t cope with an influx to our hospitals. Later in the summer is time enough for this.

    I agree no tourists until we have things under control
