Covid 19: Our Status and Policy – “Stay safe and look forward to future diving!”

The club committee would like to encourage all members not to dive for two clear reasons:

a) Even a low likelihood of contact with others will increase the risk of passing on an infection.

b) A diving accident, even one unrelated to Covid 19, will divert emergency services and NHS resources.

As of 19/3/20 we have:

1. Ceased club diving operations.
2. Postponed or cancelled any events with face to face contact.
3. Postponed the 2020 Porthkerris trip and given warning of the possible
postponement of the 2020 Scapa trip.
4. Introduced remote theory development sessions.

We are keeping the policy under review, with no relaxation of the policy until there is a
significant improvement in the Coronovirus (Covid 19) situation, as communicated by the

Anyone interested in the theory sessions, please contact the Training Officer, Carl Yates, the Diving
Officers, Doc Adey or Nick Ellerington or email
