DEMA Launches Retail Reopening Guidelines


The Diving Equipment and Marketing Association has launched a series of guidance and guidelines aimed to help the dive industry reopen for business in the era of COVID-19.

The move comes in the wake of various announcements at the local, state, and federal levels about reopening the economy in a post-pandemic era. The guidance aims to help dive retailer safely reopen for business. The advice has been subdivided into three phases:

  • Phase I: Initial considerations, contactless deliveries and pickups, e-commerce, and other aspects of planning to open.
  • Phase II: The reopening phase with social distance and reduced occupancy and utilization.
  • Phase III: The New Normal, restrictions are lifted, after a level of Protection has been established.

You can find the guide pages here, download the Phase I Relaunching Guide here, and the Phase II guide here.
