Tokyo Olympics: Australian track and field team resumes normal activities after COVID-19 scare
The Australian Olympic track and field team is resuming all normal activities after a short-lived COVID-19 scare.
The team briefly went into quarantine after three fully vaccinated members had contact with someone on the U.S. team who tested positive for COVID-19, the Australian Olympic Committee confirmed early Thursday.
The isolation period lasted about two hours, and involved all 54 team members (41 athletes and 13 officials), the committee said in a statement later on Thursday.
