Tokyo Organizer Releases Final Edition of COVID Rulebook | World

The Playbook is a COVID-19 rulebook for athletes and everyone else entering Japan to participate in the Olympics.

The second edition, published in April, was criticized last month in an editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine, in particular that the playbook was “not built on a scientifically rigorous risk assessment.”

No major changes are expected in the final version, but smaller details may be provided for everyone, from athletes to the media, broadcasters and tens of thousands of support staff.

Specified April version:

— All participants must pass two COVID-19 tests before leaving their home country. And they will be tested when they arrive in Japan.

—Athletes are tested daily, just like athletes near them.

— Other game participants will be tested daily for the first 3 days and then as needed.

— All game participants must use private vehicles and avoid public transport for the first 14 days.

— Game participants will circumvent the 14-day quarantine rule for entry into Japan, but to do so, they will need to fill out a schedule listing their plans for that period and download the tracking app.
