We hire Marine Biologist who need to dive from time to time. If they practice hygiene protocols and do not share any equipment, is it safe to dive? Thanks
We understand your worries especially because we’re now in the midst of COVID-19 outbreak.
As long as yu=ou adhere to the standard of protocol during this pandemic, it is safe to dive. Moreover, the virus can’t survive long in sea water, so no worries regarding transmission of the virus through water.
