Is it Safe to Travel Now?

I was hiking and got yelled at. Full story here:

In short, I was hiking in national, public forest. Following all guidelines and got yelled at by two locals who were also hiking on the public land.

They thought that since I came from further away I should have stayed home? Is this true? Leave the public lands to locals- or is it ok for us to hike again?

Shake it off, IMO, it’s safe to travel. It’s safe to fly, it’s safer to hike and be outside.

and btw, the public lands belong to all of us.
