(NBC News Channel) — American gymnasts, including star Simone Biles, arrived in Japan’s capital Thursday, just over a week before the start of the Tokyo Olympics.

All overseas athletes are required to take two COVID-19 tests during the 4-day period before their departure to the host city and another test upon arrival at the airport in Japan.

They will get tested daily and undergo a three-day quarantine.

The Olympics kick off on July 23 and end on Aug. 8.
