COVID-19 Updates

Although the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, we here at Loch Low-Minn are doing everything we can to keep our guests and employees safe while continuing to meet everyone's diving needs to the best of our abilities. Since opening in May and operating within the guidelines set by the state of Tennessee on outdoor activities and open-air facilities, we are happy to share that we have had zero reports of any illnesses or accidents. With this in mind, we are adjusting our temporary pandemic rules as follows:

  • We are rescinding "by appointment only" restrictions and returning to the normal hours of operation 9am - 6 pm (Doors close at 4pm). We still encourage larger groups of four or more, including dive school classes, to call ahead and let us know the number of people attending, so that we can reserve tables.
  • First time guests must download, print, and fill out all applicable forms and waivers ahead of time and provide them during sign-in.
  • We still have a limit on non-diving companions in order to reduce group size and risk. Only parents of minors will be allowed to supervise.
  • Office restroom are reserved for Loch Low-Minn staff only. Guests should use portable toilets available at the diving area.
  • We will once again offer rentals of wetsuits, BCDs, gloves, hoods, boots, masks, and fins, as well as tanks and weights. We will thoroughly disinfect the equipment before renting it out. We will also continue offering air and Nitrox fills for personal tanks. However, due to health concerns, we will not offer rentals of any snorkels or regulators at this time.

We continue to encourage our guests to respect the health and wellness of our staff and their fellow divers by:

  • Following social distancing guidelines and not coming closer than 6ft to each other and staff while not underwater.
  • Restricting physical contact and sharing of equipment.
  • Wearing face masks, if available, while not underwater.
  • Checking your temperature prior to your visit and canceling your trip in case of a fever or other symptoms.
