South Australia imposes 14-day additional quarantine for athletes isolating in Sydney after Tokyo Updated: 2021-08-12 09:59:51 KST

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics was the first to be held in the pandemic era and as Olympians return home, some have had to quarantine including 16 Australian athletes who are facing 28 days of isolation.
Australia's mandatory quarantine length is 14 days, but the state of South Australia is imposing an additional 14 days from athletes who first must isolate upon arrival in Sydney before moving to the state afterwards.
This comes as Sydney is under strict lockdown with a rising number of COVID-19 cases.
Various officials reacted with concernincluding Australian Olympic committee chief executive Matt Carroll who on Wednesday said this could expose athletes to mental health issues as they already experienced strict living conditions during the competition.
