It is nearly impossible to say that there is something wrong with what you propose. After all, what could possibly go wrong?
The problem is, if the back-country were left open as you suggest, it is unlikely that everyone will be as "safe" as you intend. That is, there will be a flood of people going to the back-country which is what was happening to Moab for example.(Several days ago a friend of ours who lives in Frisco said everyone there out of work was heading to the desert. Especially the young out-of-workers. (Ya,hooo. Party time.))
For this to succeed so we can get back to near normal ASAP we cannot have a country of people mobilized to do long distance travel and contamination just because they have the day off.
Bottom-line, you can't always get what you want.
Thank you very much if you play it safe and stay put.
