Drawing on the successful experience of epidemic prevention and control in large-scale international events held in the world and being held in the past, we have carefully studied with the International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee, and decided to implement strict closed-loop management of Olympic personnel.
"The closed-loop management policy is one of our most prominent features of epidemic prevention for the Winter Olympics, which can ensure that the Winter Olympics are held under the premise of the safety of the epidemic."
