For all Olympic venues, organizers established a capacity restriction of 50% of capacity, up to a maximum of 10,000 fans.

The IOC and the organizing committee for the Tokyo Olympics announced on Monday that some local fans will be allowed to attend when the games begin in a little over a month.

 For all Olympic venues, organizers established a restriction of 50% capacity up to a maximum of 10,000 spectators. The choice was reached through online discussions with local organizers, the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee, the Japanese government, and the Metropolitan Tokyo administration. 

The decision goes against the advice of Dr. Shigeru Omi, the country's top medical adviser, who said last week that holding the Olympics without crowds would be the safest option. He earlier described the Olympics being held amid the epidemic as "abnormal."

On July 23, the Tokyo Olympics will begin.

International fans have been prohibited for several months. Local fans will be subjected to tight regulations, according to officials. They will not be permitted to applaud, will be required to wear masks, and will be directed to return home immediately following the event.

Before a formal pronouncement, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, who has supported fans, stated that if conditions change he will prohibit supporters.

“If a state of emergency is necessary, I will be flexible and open to no fans to achieve that the games give top priority to safety and security for the people,” Suga said. ”In case of a state of emergency, it is quite possible ... for safe and secure (games) I will not hesitate to have no fans".

“Under this COVID-19 pandemic, people in Tokyo, people in Japan, are feeling very uneasy. We have concerns and the experts are also making recommendations about the risk of spreading the infection,” Koike said. “If there should be a major change in the sanitary situation or infection situation, we need to revisit this matter among ourselves and we may need to consider the option of having no spectators in the venues," he said.
