As consequence any area under stay at home orders must cease all dragon boat activity until the conclusion of the restrictions. While there are some limited excuses for people in these areas to leave their home, including exercise and outdoor recreation, unfortunately the two person limit prevents dragon boat activity from proceeding safely.

The latest dragon boat covid related information and resources can be found on the DBNSW website here.
