Recommendations to avoid the correct organization of games
Among the different measures that seem to be being weighed, the Washington Post indicates that it hopes that Biden will carry out the approval of a public recommendation that prevents sending US officials to the games. To do this, it is necessary to become aware that the White House he always sends officials from the country for the opening and closing of the games.
