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

Greetings!

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.

You may consult a MOH doctor by clicking Ask Doctor at the Ministry of Health website (COVID-19 Portal) to ask any health issues related to COVID-19 starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.

After 5.00 pm till 12.00 am, please direct your enquiries to our DoctorOnCall website at this link https://www.doctoroncall.com.my/tanya/.
