Dive Spear and Sport COVID-19 Response
While still operating, Dive Spear and Sport will take the required steps to assist in minimizing the spread of the virus throughout the population. We will continue to monitor and adapt to the situation as it unfolds. Read on for what to expect from us in the meantime.
Firstly: What is COVID-19?
“Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus that had not been previously identified in humans. The virus causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever and in more severe cases, pneumonia” (WHO). Some people recover easily, while others may get sick very quickly. As infection is similar to the spread of the flu, good hygiene can assist in prevention.
- from close contact to an infected person
- from touching objects or surfaces contaminated by the sneeze or cough of an infected person and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth
