Editor's note: On Feb 4, the Olympic cauldron will be ignited in Beijing, signaling the start of the 2022 Winter Olympic Games. With the grand sporting event kicking off in less than a month, organizers are fully prepared to hold a series of simple, safe and splendid competitions. All venues and facilities are in place, clean air and green energy is already flowing, and a closed-loop system is ready up to prevent COVID-19.

The global COVID-19 pandemic is treated as a major threat to the safe operations of the Games. All possible measures have been put in place to ensure a safe and secure Games.

Two editions of the Beijing 2022 Playbook outline COVID-19 countermeasures for the Games.

The Playbook serves as the basis of the game plan to ensure that all Games participants and the people of China stay safe and healthy.

The Playbook has been developed jointly by the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games 2022, the International Olympic Committee, and the International Paralympic Committee.

The Playbook has two versions. The first notifies the Games participants about what they should do before the Games. The second features updated COVID-19 countermeasures and is based on the established principles specified in the first one.

Participants are considered to be fully vaccinated according to the regulations of their country of residence at least 14 days prior to their departure to China, or if not eligible for full vaccination due to proven recent infection.

In order to better prevent and control the spread of COVID-19, every participant in the closed loop system is required to undergo daily screening tests for COVID-19 and wear a face mask (KN95, N95, FFP2, or equivalent standard) during the Games.

Positive cases will be processed according to their symptoms. Those with symptoms will be transferred to a dedicated hospital for treatment, and the asymptomatic ones will be asked to isolate in other dedicated facilities or at their accommodation (As the IOC has said, it would be better if asymptomatic persons can isolate in hospitals as well).
