Returning to Diving/Training Post-COVID Infection

If you have had COVID-19 or a positive COVID-19 test, Wet Rocks Diving will be following the DAN Europe or UK Diving Medical Committee guidance (below) at this time. As we get more data on the effects of COVID, this guidance may change from time to time. Mild/asymptomatic cases will require, at minimum, a recovery period and return to normal function during intense physical activity. Not all infections will require medical examination before diving; however, if medical clearance is needed the forms can be found in this section above, plus additional guidance and testing that may be required depending on the severity of your infection (next section below). If you’ve had COVID, please do reach out to your Wet Rocks Instructor to make sure you are using the correct forms and protocols.

Additional COVID Information

Even a mild case of COVID can have a serious impact on your (and your team’s) safety to dive. Read more about the after-effects of COVID Infections of divers in this DIVE Magazine article. One of the best solutions is time, which is why a post-infection surface interval is important. Further, return to your regular exercise routine (assuming you had a strenuous cardio routine pre-COVID, e.g. running, swimming, biking at VO2Max level intensity) may also be an important indicator; lower performance or greater effort needed post-COVID may indicate you have not fully recovered.

Furthermore, consider joining DAN’s “Return to Diving After COVID-19 Infection” study.
