Beijing 2022 Olympic Village enters closed-loop operation

The Winter Olympic Village in the Beijing 2022 co-host city Zhangjiakou of Hebei Province in north China rolled out closed-loop management measures on Thursday as the Games are set to kick off in less than a month.

The Olympic Village in Zhangjiakou will officially come into operation on Jan 27 and close on March 16, running for 53 days in total.

During the Games, it is expected to receive 2,020 athletes and team officials from delegations of 79 countries and regions. About 644 athletes, team officials and delegations from 39 countries and regions are estimated to arrive in the village for the Paralympic Games.

The Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics will take place between February 4 and 20, followed by the Winter Paralympics from March 4 to 13, at three competition zones -- downtown Beijing, the capital city's northwestern suburban district of Yanqing and Zhangjiakou City in neighboring Hebei Province.
