Tokyo 2020 Olympics: news, COVID-19, coronavirus, postponed, update, vaccine,

Organisers of the rescheduled Tokyo Olympics will this week release a ‘playbook’ of COVID–19 biosecurity protocols for athletes to ensure the postponed Games can go ahead this July.

According to The Daily Mail, athletes will be barred from leaving the Olympic Village except to compete or train – but won’t have to quarantine when they enter Japan.

Competitors will reportedly be tested before leaving their home nations and again after arriving in Japan, and then every four days during the competition.

They will also be only allowed to arrive in the Village five days before their event begins – and must leave immediately afterwards, which will put an end to the traditional partying and sightseeing for athletes who have concluded their competitive duties.
