The Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers could face tomorrow in the Super Bowl, but health officials say watching parties and similar events is not worth the risk as the coronavirus continues to spread.
Los Angeles public health officials have warned that Super Bowl parties “can turn into super-broadcast events,” and encouraged sports fans to celebrate the Super Bowl at home, “without putting yourself or yourself or your friends, family and neighbors in danger ”. The advisory comes as Los Angeles continues to see at least 4,500 new daily cases of Covid-19 and many new deaths
Los Angeles Public Health on Saturday confirmed 4,860 new cases, 193 new deaths and 4,607 current hospitalizations. To date, Los Angeles has recorded a total of 1,434,422 cases of coronavirus and 17,955 deaths.

“Cases and hospitalizations are down, but remain high, and we cannot afford to engage in risky activities that could make this virus spread more easily,” Public Health said. in a report. “When people from different households mix together, it increases the risk of the spread of COVID-19, especially if it happens indoors and without face cover or physical distance.”
Officials suggest watching the Super Bowl with people with those who live in their homes and virtually with friends and others who live elsewhere. However, if Angelos decides to host or attend Super Bowl events in person, officials say indoor events without facial coverage and physical distance could increase the spread of Covid-19.
If the tips for Super Bowl gatherings sound familiar to you, it’s probably because the warnings are similar to those shared by officials during the holiday season. Although it has been more than a month since the winter break, Los Angeles County continues to suffer the deadly toll and other consequences of the December-January outbreak.
