The announcement came after a “five-party meeting” attended by Thomas Bach, President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee chief Seiko Hashimoto.

The meeting also had representatives of the Tokyo metropolitan government, the Japanese government and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) in attendance.

Bach said at the virtual meeting that the IOC was “fully committed to the successful and safe delivery of the Olympic and Paralympic Games”.

The five parties made an announcement on the revised edition of the playbooks.

The playbooks added some “new rules which have to be observed by everyone involved in the Games during their stay in Japan”.
