Quite a few cavers parked up on Leck over the weekend. Gavel, Notts 2, Shuttleworth seem popular for folks starting on easier trips. I expect these are mostly groups of friends rather than any sort of club meet. I've been caving with up to six friends generally keeping a bit apart but not being very strict about it. Tend to look at the much lower case rates and vaccination rates more which indicate much lower risks. Flipping a neck Buff up works well especially if cold. I think you have to consider the vulnerability of those involved including those they live with and make sure everyone is happy with the level of risk you are taking. Last year we were a bit concerned about caving with friends with kids who had gone back to school or students who had escaped from uni back home.Certainly for me the risk of caving with a few mates is far far lower than being at work in either of the jobs I do.Good caving
Also saw that the government are now going to be offering twice weekly home lateral flow testing to all households. We currently home test twice a week already as it was offered to parents when schools returned. Obviously the lateral flow tests are 100% foolproof, but wondered if clubs would take the view that they should be done in the advance of a trip?
