China will not let foreign spectators be at the Olympics

The International Olympic Committee said that COVID-19 protocols will be in place at the upcoming 2022 Winter Games in Beijing — including lengthy quarantines for un-vaccinated participants, daily COVID-19 testing and the absence of international spectators.

The countermeasures, which were proposed by local Beijing organizers and detailed in an IOC news release, mirror those at the recent Summer Games in some respects and appear more strict in others.

Unlike in Tokyo, where athletes mostly competed behind closed doors, Beijing 2022 organizers have indicated that some Chinese fans will be permitted to attend their Games, as long as they follow to-be-determined protocols.

Foreign spectators, including athletes’ family members and friends, will be barred from attending.
