    • It's pretty certain that asymptomatic folks crossing your state line aren't going to bring in any more virus than your folks going out of state for business or pleasure. At issue are bottlenecks. Lots of folks arriving by few mass transit hubs, checking in indoors, etc .... coupled with limited capacity to treat new cases. Contact tracing of post-modern nomads is a challenging exercise. And public health departments are putting the onus for accountability on camp staff. That's the real disappointment. From a public health perspective, camps would be ideal for training contact tracers ... an occupation we will certainly need come late fall. Forming the newly-unemployed into a Workman's Contact Tracing Corps would be a formidable endeavor, but the long-term payoff could be tremendous. But, I guess doing something of the sort would require a belief in big government that we all simply do not have.
    • Agreed, but an open Philmont would have generated positive cash for BSA.  Now that cash flow is gone, I'm concerned they will access debt against it or worse case sell it. Hopefully not.
    • More likely Philmont was just stuck waiting for the state to make decisions on public openings and has ran out of time to have the camp ready. Barry
    • Given that Philmont is now the only closed BSA HA base, and BSA needs cash immediately, do they sell it off this fall?  I hope not … but I'm' starting to get a bit concerned thinking that 2019 may have been the last year of Philmont Treks.   Edit: Or perhaps, my optimistic thought, they can just exercise lines of credit against Philmont to get cash.
    • NM seems to be one of the few sane states. It makes no sense to have kids coming in to your state from other geographic regions. This thing isn't knocked back yet. The focus needs to be on getting them back in school in the fall.
