The Medical Advisory Panel (MAP) of the IBCPC strongly encourages breast cancer survivor dragon boat teams to create their own individual vaccine policies. These policies should be in accordance with your local public health guidelines and any national dragon boat guidelines that may exist. Links to national/regional dragon boat vaccine policies can be found below.
Any policy created should include clear expectations for individual members of a team both on and off the water and for both indoor and outdoor settings. Factors to consider should include the following:
1. Attendance and contact tracing
2. Sanitation procedures
4. Social distancing
5. Vaccine requirements.
We are all in this together. Stay strong and stay safe.
