    Second home mentality , sorry no! On that note how on earth did the Germans get into our country towing a caravan? Maybe more border controls needed , not just airports!!!

    Totally agree. Owners will be able to socially distance and be responsible whilst getting the mental wellbeing benefits of using their caravans

    Definitely No- we will be overrun by virus carrying incomers

    No. Health resources in remote areas are very scarce, set up to cope with their very small populations. Incoming viruses would overwhelm the system.

    Caravan sites should be open to owners only, can easily carry out social distancing , understand social facilities may not open for sometime but the choice for owners to visit their caravans should be permitted. Generally speaking families that use caravans don’t socialise with other groups while there at normal times so this would be adhered to quite easily.

    Totally agree with annecampbell

    Read the previous posts on this subject. NO. Caravans and 2nd homes are in areas that are mostly free of the virus at the moment and struggling to supply and support their own people. They don't want outsiders coming in and potentially bringing C19 and should have the absolute right to prevent it. Food shops are for local people, food outlets, crafts and galleries are closed. Where there is only one food shop in a community, which is common in rural areas, then the shopkeeper catching the virus would almost certainly pass the infection to every local household. Every distance travel brings risk to others. You don't have the right to risk the many to benefit the few who are lucky enough to have a caravan or 2nd home. Please don't.

    Definitely not! This will encourage tourists - a luxury we cannot afford this summer when the Covid figures are so high.

    It's not about being able to socially distance it's about not overwhelming local resources in rural communities. The Highlands has 28 ICU beds for the entire region, if visitors are allowed to stay in the area we could quickly run out of beds. Until we have a robust track, trace and test system visitors are going to have to wait a while longer.
