Letter to the editor: We shouldn’t expect many visitors during pandemic

David Abell
Breckenridge and Denver

In yesteryears, Breckenridge was a mineral-dependent mining town that could control neither the availability of gold/silver nor the nation’s monetary policies. Hence, for a time, it became a veritable ghost town.

Now, in 2020, Breckenridge finds itself tourist-dependent and, outside its own small area, unable to control the coronavirus that has spread worldwide. Like it or not, until there is a proven vaccine, no tourist-dependent destination should expect large numbers of travelers to land on its doorstep. In the meantime, make do as best we can, albeit “with a little help from (our) friends.” (John Lennon and Paul McCarthy)
