COVID19

 Safety guidelines 

Do not travel if you feel ill & are exhibiting symptoms of Covid19 or have been exposed to someone with symptoms or are either Covid19+ or suspected of being Covid19+. You will not be allowed entry to the resort if you have symptoms but would be quarantined and be referred to the local health facility.

COVID TESTING:

With the recent increase in cases, we are asking guests to take an Antigen Swab test 48 hours prior to arrival at the resort with the understanding that a negative test result is not a guarantee of being Covid free, it is best to treat everyone as a suspected asymptomatic carrier.

OPEN AIR ENVIRONMENT:
The resort has mainly an open-air environment that promotes safety, with separate sections for open air dining, but all guests are required to follow health and safety protocols for everyone’s safety. We require everyone to observe caution by wearing masks, limiting conversation specially when dining & maintaining social distancing. 
GUEST LIMIT:
We are limiting guest head count for added safety. We also recommend visiting on weekdays so that there are fewer people on site. We can also advise you of expected guest headcount to help you manage your own safety.
DINING & ON SITE:
  1. Maintain social distancing on site. There are 3 open air sections guests can use to spread themselves out. 
  2. Avoid conversations when eating as you are not wearing masks. Wear masks when conversing with others at closer distances.
  3. Sanitize often, and always when using high touch surfaces such as condiments that are shared with others.
  4. Dining will be scheduled to help maintain social distancing.
  5. Observe social distancing & sanitizing during times where socialising happens, eg: wine and cheese sunset hours! Sharing food is discouraged, when this cannot be avoided, please do so with caution, avoid talking when there is food directly below you. 
 
ACCOMMODATIONS:
  1. Members of the same household can stay in one room on twin sharing. Otherwise single accommodation is the recommended set up.
  2. When sharing a room it is important to verify that your room mate is Covid Free (secure swab tests, implement a pre-quarantine) for the purposes of safety and avoiding cross infections, we also recommend an open air environment (fan) to ensure good room air circulation.
 
DIVING:
On site guidelines:
  1. Diving schedules will be set in advance for better management & control.
  2. Set up your own gear to limit exposure of your equipment.
  3. You can also sanitize your regulator mouth piece and BCD inflator hose before using it.
Other guidelines:
  1. You may bring covers for your regulators & bcd inflator hoses to help prevent exposure & contamination for yourself & others.(resealable bag/plastic bag with rubber band will do, ensure it is kept properly)
  2. Bring facemasks, include a spare, ensure it is well kept when not in use & will not cause ocean litter.
  3. Bring personal sanitizing gear/items so that you can keep yourself & your gear sanitized as often as you feel the need to.
