Entire foreign Olympic team to quarantine if one member tests positive for COVID-19  

Yomiuri reported that the GOJ and the Tokyo Olympics organizing committee have decided to update the guidelines for municipalities that plan to host training camps for foreign athletes, saying that all team members will be requested to quarantine in their hotel rooms and stop training in the event that one member tests positive for the novel coronavirus in order to ensure the virus is not brought into Japan from overseas. The athletes will not be allowed to resume training until their negative results become available. The daily added that more municipalities have decided to forego plans to host foreign athletes for pretraining camps in view of the rapid spread of the Delta variant and the detection of two COVID-19 cases among the nine-member Ugandan team.
