The wheels of the economy need to keep turning in order to pay for the huge cost of this impending disaster.
There’s things that can be done to keep tourism going while we enter and sail through this disaster. There are as many ideas as there are people and some make sense and some don’t.
Instead of locking down everything, I think tourists should be only permitted to go to all inclusive resorts for the next few months. They can’t rent cars. They can only go on certified tours that do not take locals.
Tour guides on these tours must get tested weekly while following strict protocols.
Shopping trips must be conducted as small tours where tourists are escorted by guides. If restaurants are to be open for dining then possibly have a day or a night when it’s only for tourists and the others when it’s only locals.
It’s time to have real bubbles and not pappyshow bubbles. We need to be strict and sensible to avoid complete lockdowns.
It’ll take us a month or two to get out of this frightening healthcare situation. It’s time to get tough but let business function if there’s a possibility of them working safely.
