Looks like a beautiful spot to camp though. Hopefully the restructions will lift there soon.

Finally....Some consequences for not following rules.
Slap them all with fines and send a message.

You cannot just suggest anything and leave it at that and expect it to work.
Human nature is to push boundaries.

Personally I don't get it. If people want to be out doing things then they should be allowed. If you're worried about catching Covid, then stay home. People need to be able to deal with the consequences of their actions. I don't like this "police state" mentality that some governments are taking. My own included. In my area the county prosecutor is charging people with criminal actions for opening up business like a barber shop and a gym. What's coming next?

“There were some people who thought that living moderately and avoiding any excess might help a great deal in resisting this disease, and so they gathered in small groups and lived entirely apart from everyone else...Others thought the opposite: they believed that drinking excessively, enjoying life, going about singing and celebrating, satisfying in every way the appetites as best one could, laughing, and making light of everything that happened was the best medicine for such a disease; so they practiced to the fullest what they believed by going from one tavern to another all day and night, drinking to excess; and they would often make merry in private homes, doing everything that pleased or amused them the most.”

Exactly right. "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." Benjamin Franklin
