During their stay, athletes are only allowed to travel between the village and the training and competition venues while sports officials have to move on only the routes they registered before entering Japan. They are banned from leaving the athletes’ village or going to tourist sites, restaurants, or bars, according to Olympics and Paralympics organisers’ regulations.

Athletes will also have samples taken for Covid-19 testing every day. In case of a positive test result, they will be hospitalised or sent to a hotel outside the athletes’ village for quarantine.
