The Macao International Dragon Boat Races, which will take place this Sunday and next Monday, will have no spectators due to the latest Covid-19 developments in neighbouring cities.

This year’s Dragon Boat Festival falls on 14 June, next Monday. Health Bureau (SSM) Director Alvis Lo Iek Long said that the family carnival event for the dragon boat races, which was initially scheduled to be held on Saturday, has also been cancelled.

Lo noted that all the 2,000 dragon boat racers and staff members will have to present a valid nucleic acid test certificate confirming that they have tested negative for Covid-19, or a certificate confirming that they have been fully (twice) inoculated against Covid-19 at least 14 days before, The Macau Post Daily reported.
