    Meetings of more than 6 stopped

    Is diving an organised sport?

    Does the monday rules mean boat dives are off the menu or restricted to 6 ?

    I am not meeting you I just happen to be on the same boat ! Exactly the same argument that should be applied to people visiting beaches or parks

    It does seem a bit bonkers that I can get on a train full of people and be in an office full of others, but I can't be on a dive boat with a few people...

    I am actually surprised that after opening schools back up they haven't shut the entire hospitality sector back down .

    Any organised event is off and a gathering must include a dive boat. I am curious why there is not more traffic on the news websites and so on. I guess we will soon see, but I take it to mean the quarries are closed as of Monday, as are dive boats and club boats of more than 6 persons. I guess if you charter a boat for 5 divers plus the skipper you are OK.

    It is only no more than 6 people in each group? So you can have more than one group as long as they can distance?

    No need for the quarries to close I don't think. From the UK gov website: "There will be a limited number of exemptions. COVID-19 Secure venues, such as places of worship, restaurants and hospitality venues, can still host larger numbers in total but groups of up to 6 must not mix or form larger groups."

    What are the rules in Scotland? Will this affect Scapa boats?

    I`m in Wales, does it affect us?

    Can I still drive to Durham to check my eyesight?

    Should we give a flying anymore?

    Does moonshot mean Borris is setting up a testing station on the moon?

    Apparently our local testing station is Oldham.

    "Limited number" means lots and lots and lots with people making it up as they go along

    I think you are right that the quarries could (just) swing it. Letter of the law rather than spirit, but then go to the pub unless your group is 7 you are OK, but how to keep a distance from the other group of 6? So this 'collection' of 18 people is actually three groups of 6 not one of 18 as Bob and Vera don't know Mike and Sandy.

    Gonna be a fun ride....

    Not sure I can make head nor arseholes of any of it. I think you can have a bigger group in Scotland but less mixing if they are not same family?
