Review restrictions and carefully ease them

- if work can take place with people remaining more than 2 metres apart, e.g. many construction sites, that could be encouraged?
- if leisure activities can take place for non- contact sports in parks and other locations, e.g. golf, fishing, sailing, that too could be encouraged?
- could we review "stay at home" and move to "stay apart"?
- quarantine local "hotshpots" to protect other areas and also locations where there are no cases - to protect them.

Why the contribution is important

There comes a point where the current policy will be causing more deaths and damage to people than a careful easing of the process.

    These are all great ideas in my opinion

    Agreed, the lack of a clear, pragmatic exit strategy and plan is hard to comprehend.

    Agree entirely. Hopefully the scottish government will move away from their easy option of telling us to stay at home while giving the mixed message that you can go out as often as you like for exercise towards a carefully thought out plan that brings tha nation back to work and allows people to enjoy basic personal freedoms. After all their stay at home policy is based on an r number which they cannot provide and cannot tell us how it is calculated.

    This is the purpose of this consultation and there have been many good ideas proposed.

    I am now concerned we are being played. Nicola sturgeon has just been on television and said nothing is going to change. She made no mention of this consultation or waiting for it to conclude and see what it says.

    It sounds horribly like the decisions have been made and what we say here does not matter.

    I do hope I am wrong. If I am not the Scottish Government is going to lose the respect of it's people.
