United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee Coronavirus Updates

Thanks to the dedication and diligence of our entire community, we safely and successfully supported Team USA through the Tokyo and Beijing Games – all while navigating the unique challenges posed by a global pandemic. With that, and in light of new CDC recommendations, we have updated our COVID-19 mitigation strategy to reflect the latest guidance, while also considering our experience and best practices of similar high-performance sport organizations. 

 

We remain fully committed to providing athletes, staff and our entire Team USA community a safe, healthy and accessible environment. We will continue to follow the guidance of public health professionals, including the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention and local state health partners, as we closely monitor the environment and alter our policies to keep us all healthy and safe.
