Update on Covid-19 & caving activities 1/6/2020

Updated 1/6/2020

The DCA have been asked for advice on returning to caving and we felt that we should update cavers on the current local situation. We are not here to police caving or advise one way or the other. What we have chosen to do is to lay out some of the facts as they currently are and highlight any information from relevant bodies or organisations.
