Covid-19 Vaccination Policy
It is Dive Zone Taurangas policy that we require anyone undertaking training or registering with us for a trip to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19
We are taking this stance to not only protect our staff and customers but to do our bit in limiting the spread of the virus.
The long-term effects of Covid-19 and ‘long Covid’ on the respiratory system can pose a serious threat that can be detrimental to divers and while we respect other people’s decision, we do not wish to subject our staff and customers to any unnecessary risk.
If you enroll on a course, know that all our instructors and staff will be double vaccinated for both your and their safety and wellbeing.
We will require proof of vaccination from customers enrolled on courses and trips from 1 December 2021
We thank you for your support and custom during these challenging times.
