No tickets will be sold for the upcoming Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Beijing due to the “grave and complicated situation of the COVID-19 pandemic” in China.

The ‘npr’ stated that instead, organizers announced on January 17th that they would invite groups of spectators to attend the games in person.

The 2022 Winter Olympics, officially the XXIV Olympic Winter Games and commonly known as Beijing 2022, is an upcoming international winter multisport event scheduled to take place from February 4th to February 20th, 2022 in Beijing and venues near neighboring towns of Yanqing and Chongli in the People’s Republic of China.

The 2022 Winter Paralympics, officially known as the XIII Paralympic Winter Games and commonly known as Beijing 2022 Paralympic Games, is an international winter multisport event for disabled athletes that are scheduled to take place in Beijing, People’s Republic of China, from March 4th to March 13th, 2022.

The Beijing 2022 Organizing Committee said in a statement, “The organizers expect that these spectators will strictly abide by the COVID-19 countermeasures before, during and after each event as pre-conditions for the safe and sound delivery of the Games.”

The ‘npr’ further stated that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) previously said they would sell tickets only to spectators living in mainland China who met certain COVID-19 safety requirements.

Fans weren’t allowed in the stands during the summer Olympics in Tokyo (Japan) last year.

The Winter Games won’t require athletes to be vaccinated against COVID-19, but those who are unvaccinated will have to quarantine for 21 days when they arrive in Beijing (China). The IOC also implemented other policies to prevent the spread of COVID during the competition, such as a “closed-loop” system that limits participants to certain Olympics-related areas and other permitted locations and isolates them from China’s general public.

China has been working to quell a series of COVID outbreaks in the weeks before the Games, recently putting more than 20 million people across the country in some form of lockdown. Last week, Beijing reported its first locally transmitted case of the Omicron variant.
