Latest Covid 19 Restrictions on Diving

As most of you may have seen already, although we still can not go boat diving, we can go shore diving under certain circumstances.

Below is an extract  from the  DHHS website:

I live in Melbourne. Can I undertake recreational activities like fishing?

Yes. From 11:59pm on 8 July, if you live in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire, you can leave home for permitted exercise and recreation activities that are outdoors and can be done by yourself, members of your household, or with one other person. 

You must be able to maintain a 1.5 metre distance and no equipment should be shared. 

This includes, fishing, boating, surfing, recreational diving, learning to drive, or reading in a park. However, you cannot drive a long way from your home to do these activities, if they can be done closer to home.

You cannot leave the metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire for sporting or recreational activities. This is an important step to help us slow the spread of the virus.

While you can do these activities in metropolitan Melbourne or Mitchell Shire, you should stay close to home and use common sense and consideration when it comes to these activities.
