Five members of Canada's Olympic delegation were placed under COVID-19 protocols upon arrival in Beijing — although it's unclear whether than means they tested positive and are in quarantine.

The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) said it would not be sharing names "because there will likely be persistent shedders," meaning people who continue to test positive for the virus long after their initial diagnosis.

"We are following the Beijing 2022 playbook rules," COC said a statement. "Part of our strategy was to arrive early to allow time for confirmation testing and, if necessary, the medical expert panel process to unfold."

The full Canadian delegation currently on the ground in China consists of 246 people. The COC did not specify whether any of the 215 athletes on the team were in protocols. Canada is bringing a delegation of around 600 people to the Games, including athletes, coaches and staff.
