The Games organizing body had laid down specific rules and regulations especially in view of the Covid-19 situation, and athletes that arrived from India were required to undergo a mandatory three-day quarantine period upon landing in Tokyo. This requirement was however; later repealed and Indian athletes were allowed to use common areas, training, gymnasium and dining halls after clearing their COVID tests at the airport and receiving their PVC cards.
