News from GUE HQ
I would like to offer my wishes for your safety and health during these challenging times. With most of the world heavily affected by the COVID-19 virus, I want to reiterate GUE’s sense of community and offer our wishes that each of you are able to minimize the impact of these difficult days.
Given the many complications, we are monitoring the virus progression and global health recommendations on a daily basis. Given the variability of restrictions and diversity of exposure risk across the world, GUE is not currently prohibiting dive training. However, we do suggest that each person take their personal situation into account and act based upon local rules, policies and implemented preventive measures. We urge you to consider the wellbeing and health of all involved. We are in direct communication with our instructors and working with them in support of class policies and training options that reduce transmission risk among those who remain desirous of undertaking training.
GUE divers wishing to postpone their training will receive an automatic extension to their registration grace period, allowing them to repurpose this fee to account for the time lost during the management of the virus. GUE will also extend the normal provisional window, allowing all students an opportunity to upgrade after the threat from the virus has receded. Your GUE instructor will work directly with you toward scheduling a new class and repurposing any deposits or fees paid for training. Please manage those costs directly with your instructor.
Please do contact us directly at email@example.com if you have any questions.
In the meantime please accept our heartfelt wishes for your well being. May you and yours remain safe and healthy.
