    I have been planning to go to New Mexico, the Taos/Angel Fire/Red River area, and I get conflicting ideas as to, if I go, I will be able to do anything but stay in a room somewhere. The state appears to still have a 14-day self-quarantine for anyone coming into the state, according to the government sites. But I called a tour company that offers sleigh rides and was told to come on and not worry about restrictions. Was the latter lying to me? Or are these restrictions so difficult to enforce that they may as well not exist (supposing they do)? Romans 13 comes into application IMO.

    The restrictions are designed to protect the State’s inhabitants from the virus.
    Whether the people follow the guidelines is really up to each person.
    Businesses, particularly those involving travel, will do their best to get around the restrictions. Their goal is to stay in business, they aren’t so concerned with the health of those doing the traveling, particularly since the symptoms occur one or two weeks after they travel.

    About a month ago my wife traveled to Maine to visit family.
    The state required a COVID test two days before travel and a self quarantine as well, and my wife complied.
    Nobody checked to see if it was done. It’s up to the individual.

    So where are your priorities?
    Is travel so important that you are willing to risk yourself and others?

    It's not a matter of being cruel. It was a false accusation in direct opposition to what was said. D's wife voluntarily complied with all restrictions, including self-quarantine.

    It was an off-the-cuff remark and it looked like a little light hearted admonishment would suffice. How about it, Brother Alcott? Can you say "I'm sorry"?
