Athletes at the postponed Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games have been asked to arrive between five and seven days before their event and depart no later than two days after they have competed under the period of stay guidelines approved by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).
Jessica Lewis will join www.islandstats.com at 11:00 am to discuss the latest updates on the Paralympic Games.
In a statement following the latest meeting of its Governing Board, the IPC said the aim of the guidelines is to "minimize the number of residents in the Paralympic Village at any one time to lessen the risks of COVID-19 exposure".
It has told National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) that they will "need to adapt their arrival and departure policies" to ensure they meet the criteria.
Some period of stay exceptions will be considered subject to certain sport-specific criteria, the IPC said.
The IPC's guidelines are similar to those of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which confirmed last week that athletes expected to arrive at the Athletes’ Village five days prior to their competition at Tokyo 2020 and depart a maximum of two days afterward.
