Students to be allowed to watch Paralympics events live

The Saturday editions of all national papers wrote that the GOJ and the Tokyo Paralympics organizing committee have informally decided not to allow spectators at event venues in Tokyo, Saitama, and Chiba. Events in Shizuoka, however, will be opened to up to 5,000 ticketholders per venue. They also concluded that elementary, middle, and high school students will be allowed to attend Paralympics events at selected locations on the condition that they do not use public transportation to go to the venues. Chartered buses may be arranged to transport students and teachers between their schools and the event venues. Local education boards and school administrators will be given the final say over whether to participate in the Paralympics school program while taking into account the COVID-19 infection situation.
