The International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee (Tokyo 2020) have published the first of a series of ”Playbooks” for the Olympic Games, a resource that outlines the responsibilities of key stakeholders in ensuring safe and successful events this summer. This first Playbook is aimed at international federations and technical officials. The other Playbooks in the series - for the athletes, media and broadcasters - will be published in the coming days. Among the recommendations in the first Playbook, visitors are asked to get tested and provide proof of a negative COVID-19 result before they depart for the Games. A new Covid-19 test could be performed at the airport, depending on the country of origin and where the person has been in the last 14 days. The Playbook also recommends that visitors should “support athletes by clapping and not singing or chanting.” In addition, public transport will only be used if given permission. The full document is available for download from the IOC website. The first versions of this and the following Playbooks will be updated with further details over the coming months in order to reflect the latest developments of the pandemic, said the IOC.
