Bouldering in time of COVID

Idaho is special in that there seems to always be a place you can go to find solitude. Not so everywhere in the world, which makes me think that more folks are going to start to trickle into our relatively quiet corner of the world. Regardless, it seems that with the current level of paranoia surrounding COVID there will be a greater desire for solitude and a lack of crowds. Would it be useful to have an app that showed where you were planning on going (or where you checked in) at a crag or boulder to help ward off others that were seeking solitude as well? Could checking in help give boulders time to ‘rest’ and shed their residual viruses? It seems feasible with current technology but questionable in terms of adoption. Would the irony of a social app to socially distance be enough to get people to sign up?
