Don't plan on visiting the San Juans All transient accommodations, camping and mooring are closed. Saw some young turists out on a lark today obviously not distancing. Lots of "foreign" license plates. . .We don't have the infrastructure folks. medical or staples. Stay home.

When we were caught in the closing of State Parks in Utah last month we went to a small grocery store in Hanksville. The owner was so happy to see us she showed us through the store and helped us find unusual items and thanked us profusely.

I don't think it's necessarily the businesses that are complaining. But I get the concern. At the same time I wonder if those in the small towns voicing these concerns ever drive beyond their most immediate small town retail establishments in order to patronize larger town businesses. You don't need to shop at Costco or Walmart, nor do you need those specialty / boutique items that are probably only found in larger towns. The line between nice-to-have and need-to-have should be fairly obvious.
