IOC allows athletes to take off masks during ceremonies at Beijing Winter Olympics Updated: 2022-01-29 09:30:54 KST

The International Olympics Committee has eased the mask wearing rule for the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics, allowing athletes to temporarily take off their masks during medal ceremonies.
The athletes on the podium will be allowed to remove them while receiving medals.
After the ceremony, they can also take photos without masks while keeping a safe distance from others.
At the Tokyo Olympics last year, athletes were able to take off masks only for a photo for about 30 seconds.
As was the case in Tokyo, athletes are likely to be asked to put their own medals around their necks.
