    How long before campsites close?

    With the new Government guidelines announced today saying no social contact and no unnecessary travel, how long can campsites remain open?

    A good question.

    Surely, if bookings are paid for in advance, communcation on arrival is through the use of a mobile phone, and people are resticted to using just the water supply and waste disposal points, using rubber gloves, they could remain a viable option for a while yet?

    The actual travel does not necessarily involve others (apart from purchasing fuel, which can be paid for at the pump, again wearing rubber gloves.
    Carpe diem! :)

      Lots of businesses will face economic uncertainty, not just campsites...

        Shell Island have put back their opening date. C&MC are open as usual.

          As Sue says I can’t see a great problem with campsites as long as you pick ones with plenty of space between units and don’t use the communal facilities. Having said all that I would not be surprised if they start closing if only to protect staff. It’s shaping up to be a really miserable year.

            Lots in France and Spain closing. UK is supposed to be two weeks behind them with Covid-19 - so 2 weeks at a guess?

              I was thinking that, but then the question arose. Say one of us got sick while we were away? So now it looks as though our holiday exploring Wales will be limited to exploring Cornwall and Devon - an easy one day drive home.
              Well that is the modified plan - until itchy feet kick in.

              We saw a report on the SW TV the holiday park owner seems to believe Boris that this will be over in 4 months (I tend to think not) and he said he could survive with a decent July August and Autumn.

                We've paid a deposit for 3 nights Easter week in Wales.
                I think we've probably lost it but we'll see

                    Well, bang goes my idea of a spring break in the caravan then! Johnson has said 'no unnecessary travel' but like the rest of his speech, it seems these are only advisories. We won't be under martial law, from what I understand.

                    I had intended to find a remote little CS somewhere, as long as it's got hard standings - I don't fancy trying to pitch on grass with the wet winter that's been experienced by the whole country! But as kernowjon points out, what happens if you fall ill whilst away? If I felt really lousy I could always change into a shroud for the drive home!

                      rennie, the two major clubs will refund your money if the cancellation is for medical reasons.
                      Just lately I've had good experience of that!

                        The thing is can driving to a campsite really be classed as necessary travel? Should we all be stopping at home? Or does it mean unnecessary travel on public transport?

                          Have seen a grid giving advice on facebook, some of the things - use caution travelling on public transport, safe to do, going for a drive, going for a walk...I think we'd all go mad if confined to the house.

                              Yes, I don't take it seriously, but do think it is very difficult to avoid all travel. Going for a drive in your own vehicle, parking up then going for a walk, not getting too close to others seems reasonable. I do have to use the bus on the odd occasion I go to town, as the car parks are mainly multi story and I can't use them, but that is a risk I have to tame. For anyone needing to travel to work on public transport, there isn't much they can do, other than walk. If I get the virus, I expect I'll get over it but apart from being cautious there isn't much more I can do. I will have to go to town at the end of the month, so bus it will be. I suppose at times like this, on!ine banking would be useful, but I will never use it, so bus it is. Workers have little choice about it.
