Before boarding their flights, everyone also needs to provide two recent negative tests from approved labs.The threat of being sidelined by a positive test is adding to the pressure for athletes.Mogul skier Hannah Soar said she’s avoiding contact with people indoors and behaving as if everyone has the virus: “We’re basically at the point of acting like it’s March 2020.” WHAT ABOUT DAILY LIFE?Upon arrival at the airport in Beijing, participants will have their temperatures taken and be tested with throat and nasal swabs. Staff will be stationed in key areas to help guide people and ensure protocols are being followed.WHAT HAPPENS IF AN ATHLETE TESTS POSITIVE?In Tokyo, organizers say 33 athletes tested positive during the Games. They’ll also need to two days of negative tests to be let loose, as well as three days of normal temperatures and symptoms subsiding.Organizers have said athletes who recover after testing positive ahead of the Games will also be assessed on a case-by-case basis in a “more flexible manner.”WILL THERE BE FANS?Spectators from overseas won’t be allowed.
