The Japanese government will reportedly not require foreign tourists to be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus before entering Japan, but will require the submission of a negative test for the novel coronavirus and download the mobile phone software program to confirm close contact with the infected person. At that time, foreign tourists also need to enter negative test certificates, visas and other information on the software program.

In principle, every 96 to 120 hours (4 to 5 days), athletes living in Olympic villages will be tested for the virus regularly. For overseas players who go to local exchanges and enter the pre-match training place, they will be tested again about 96 to 120 hours after the entry test. The detection is mainly nucleic acid detection and antigen detection. If the result is positive, the second test will be carried out. If both results are positive, relevant epidemic prevention measures will be taken immediately.

Sports delegations from various countries and regions elected the person in charge of health management to implement the epidemic prevention action rules to athletes and others. If someone violates, they will recommend rectification, and if there is no hope for improvement, a strict response will be taken.

In addition, Japan will also formulate relevant rules for athletes to leave the Olympic Village quickly after the competition. In addition to participating in local exchanges, athletes need to return to China as soon as possible. Players also need to wear masks at ordinary times, avoid the “three secrets” (closed, dense, close contact) environment, and abide by Japan’s epidemic prevention countermeasures.
