Will come up with measures to allow foreign spectators: Tokyo Olympic CEO

Next year's re-scheduled Tokyo Olympics will be like no other, particularly for non-Japanese fans if they are allowed to enter in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.Tokyo organizing committee CEO Toshiro Muto, after a meeting Thursday about infection countermeasures, confirmed for the first time that a limited number of non-Japanese fans may be allowed to attend.

But there will be some stringent guidelines, rule books to follow, and health apps to track fans and monitor the spread of the infection.“By next spring we will be coming up with measures for all spectators including the non-Japan residents,"Muto said, speaking in Japanese in an on-line briefing. “For the non-Japanese, we need to be sure we secure a spectating opportunity for them as well.”
