DEMA, its members, and the diving industry, like the general public, are concerned about the impact of the Coronavirus on our families, loved ones, and our businesses. While there are still many unknowns, DEMA is committed to sharing resources on this issue with the diving community using a variety of channels.
DEMA is working with the association and convention communities to help bring you the best information available regarding travel to consumer dive and adventure shows, as well as other travel opportunities. We are relying on and linking advice from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) so that you can most easily locate the latest updates. Whether you are planning to travel to dive, take customers on local diving excursions, or visiting a diving or travel show, DEMA is recommending that members of the industry follow these WHO and CDC Guidelines.
We hope that this information can help DEMA members plan for contingencies as the situation evolves. You and your team can access these resources on the DEMA website by clicking here.
We are all hopeful that the medical community will soon find a means to end this epidemic and limit the immediate effects of the outbreak.
