Foreign athletes to undergo multiple PCR tests ahead of Tokyo Olympics  

Sankei front-paged an outline of the measures that the GOJ will adopt next summer regarding entry procedures for foreign athletes participating in the Tokyo Olympics, saying that they will be required to undergo at least five PCR diagnostic tests for the novel coronavirus prior to competing in Japan. According to the article, they will first need to obtain negative results from a test to be conducted less than three days before their  departure. They will also be tested at their ports of entry, upon arrival at host cities or practice camps, upon arrival at the Olympic Village, and ahead of their actual competitions. They may also be asked to undergo additional tests depending on the duration of their stay in Japan.
