Updated COVID-19 Measures

GILDENBURGH WATER  RE-OPENED ON THE 29th OF MARCH 2021

(AS PART OF STEP 1 OF THE GOVERNMENT’S ROADMAP OUT OF LOCKDOWN)

The air station and servicing facilities are open, with the shop fully re-open 

After detailed analysis of the Government’s roadmap, we have produced a summary of our COVID-safe steps:

  1. DIVERS ONLY: As a diver you are equipped with great PPE equipment, so should maintain social distancing until you are fully kitted and wearing your mask with your regulator in your mouth. Ensure this is done before you zip up dry suits and do buddy checks. Viral transmission is still possible outdoors, but very unlikely when you & your buddy are protected by dive gear.
  2. DIVERS AND SWIMMERS: People will be allowed to meet outside, and indoors. However, we are still monitoring the overall numbers of visitors. Therefore, it is essential to check the availability chart, prior to booking, to ensure maximum capacity isn’t exceeded.
  3. Our cafeteria is now permitted to facilitate eat-in orders, and take-away orders of drinks and snacks. Alternatively you can benefit from our lakeview outdoor spaces, with picnic benches, to enjoy refreshments in the open air where transmission of COVID-19 will be unlikely.
  4. Ensure you stay 1 metre apart from anyone not in your household or support bubble, when you are outdoors with unlimited ventilation, although 2 metres is still preferable where possible.
  5. Non-essential retail re-opened on 12 April, but you may still “reserve and collect”, items.
  6. You must not travel if you are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, self-isolating as a result of coronavirus symptoms, sharing a household or support bubble with somebody with symptoms, or have been told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace.

Thank you for your continued support,


Safe Diving Always & look after yourselves.
