The Divers Alert Network is conducting a five-year study on the effects of the virus on divers’ health and fitness to dive and is looking for divers and free-divers who have recovered from a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection. If you qualify, it’s an opportunity to participate in a long-term research study about the infection and a return to diving. The initial survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete, and DAN will periodically follow up on your diving career and possible medical issues.

I signed up and have already done a follow up survey. I’m the only diver within all the divers I personally know that has had Covid. I still have some lingering affects, two months after infection, but they are improving slowly. I have been in contact with my doctor to discuss the return to diving in the near future. I need a little more time yet and I’m hopeful for a full recovery.
