    Are you (or your club) wearing face coverings on dive boats?

    Quick poll to understand how widely face coverings are used when people from multiple households are out on dive boats.
    Why is it that with everything in life I always find a more difficult way of doing it (and not intentionally)

    It's not the dive boat that's the problem it's the pub or whatever afterwards!
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    You missed one option. Our club is not diving at the moment. Several members not convinced any of the options are C-19 safe and others can't get a medical because their dive doctor isn't taking appointments.

    Have found the dive boats are pretty variable in Covid responses.

    Some, like the Swanage shuttle, demand a face mask in port and that you sit at your dedicated bench position. Most have strict "no cabin" rules (as that's the skipper's place of work).

    Others are more 'relaxed'. Things tend to relax when out of port and especially if going further out.

    So no real answer to the poll as there's no "only when I have to" option.

    I won't rub it in and gloat.

    We’ve restricted numbers on our boat (have started running multiple waves on the same day when needed) and wear face coverings and aim for 1m+ distancing where possible. Basically working from the guidance issued by BSAC and the BDSG.

    Some members have opted not to dive at present due to their own personal circumstances.

    Thank you to everyone who voted and shared their experience.

    A real mix of answers which also parallels with their being a real mix in people's attitudes, behaviours and experiences during lockdown here in the UK (and no doubt in other countries as well).
