Returning to Diving/Training Post-COVID Infection
If you have had COVID-19 or a positive COVID-19 test, please see THIS DAN DOCUMENT about returning to diving and the clearance requirements and timelines. At a minimum, you will medical clearance in order to train, even for mild/asymptomatic cases. The DAN document outlines the guidance that Wet Rocks Diving is following at this time. The forms needed are in this section above.
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) 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.
