I guess like me in unusually sunny Devon you are enjoying the lack of tourists. It is even quieter than during a howling gale when people still come to the village to walk their dogs.

Over here (Ottawa, Canada) we are maybe finally getting warmer weather, although we do have a nice dusting of snow this morning.

As such, lots of people are getting out. To keep the 2m distance, locally some roads are closed off, and people are walking, walking dogs, cycling, etc.

City parks, you can walk though, but don't linger. Closed off dog parks are locked shut if possible, or just off limits. Playground equipment is off limits.

We can't drive over to the province of Quebec (which I can see from my driveway), as there are police checkpoints. Mind you, somehow our Prime Minister managed to evade the checkpoints, and went to his cottage in Quebec for the weekend.

People are very good about the social distancing, although my wife did have an occurrence in a pharmacy, where some young woman breezed past her, my wife getting elbowed, so not 100% of people are "with it".

Interesting times....

The best way to deal with people like that is to sneeze right at them and then say,"Sorry about that dear, I have this virus thing, you see ". Then watch them leg it !!
