With Super Bowl tickets selling for thousands of dollars, many fans will be tuning into the big game at home or at their local sports bars.
As the coronavirus remains a threat, health authorities are urging those watching the games outside their homes to follow COVID-19 safety precautions since the virus spreads more easily in crowded indoor areas. Fans are urged to mask up when not eating and drinking, and use a KN95 or N95 masks for added protection.
Small and outdoor gatherings are preferred to crowded indoor ones, officials said. Angelenos are also being asked to consider getting a rapid test as close to the start of the gathering as possible.
Patrons should also check venues’ specific COVID-19 requirements ahead of time, since they are likely to include COVID-19 vaccine verification and masking requirements.
