The Japanese authorities intend to release foreigners who will arrive at the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo from a two-week quarantine if they have negative coronavirus tests. This was announced on Wednesday, November 11, by the Kyodo agency.
It is noted that the presence of several certificates of a negative test result for coronavirus, made just before arrival, is mandatory. Also, the city authorities will monitor the movements of foreign guests.
At the same time, the Japanese government is considering an option in which citizens of countries with a difficult epidemiological situation due to COVID-19 may be denied entry altogether.
Recall that the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, postponed for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, should take place from July 23 to August 8, 2021.
In Japan, preparations for the Games continue on the basis of three principles: ensuring a safe environment, minimizing costs, and simplifying their format.
