Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022
China is on high alert for potential Covid-19 outbreaks as it prepares to host the upcoming sport event. The 24th Winter Olympics will be held in Beijing from February 4 to 20. The venues for the Games are divided into three zones, or clusters: Beijing, Yanqing, and Zhangjiakou.

Covid-19 precautions during the Games
All participants arriving in China must enter a “closed loop”, which Beijing Winter Olympics organisers hope will prevent any Covid-19 outbreak among athletes, volunteers and officials from leaking into China's general population.
The closed loop will encompass living quarters, competition venues, training venues and other official facilities the public will not have access to. All participants with direct access to the events, including referees, team officials and media representatives, are required to stay inside the bubble until the end of the Games.
