I have been closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation. The Governor of the state has issued an order discouraging non-essential business operations now through March 31st, 2020 or until further notice.
While I believe diving is a serious part of our mental health and wellness, in the interest of social responsibility, I have decided we should postpone trips and classes scheduled and the shop will be closed now through March 31st, 2020. We will be offering rescheduling options to those impacted by these postponements. We appreciate you accepting these options and urge others wanting to postpone their trip to accept store credit or a rain check in lieu of a refund. We understand these are trying times for all and appreciate your support. As a small business, we and our families rely on your support!
I truly believe that we will need socially responsible socializing and sanity breaks to make it through this. It is my hope that Riverside Scuba Locker can provide a much-needed respite from the daily stress of the severe isolation we may face.
In the event the order is extended and to the extent I am allowed, I will do my best to devise and implement a socially responsible strategy for diving. We will, of course, continue our sanitizing efforts
Together with your support, understanding, we will weather this storm.
Please call or check the website weekly for out drop off only times. We will only be doing repairs and air fills at this time and only on certain days. We want to keep the hours minimal to limit the amount of social interaction. Thank you again for your understanding.
The Riverside Scuba Locker Team
