The CDC felt they should add a special section to their “Small Gatherings” as the Super Bowl approaches for this weekend so you could learn more about how to reduce your risk of spreading and being exposed to COVID-19 – Here you go!
Then check out some other fun suggestions (other than football – we’ll talk about the teams tomorrow – catch the story by our sportswriter, John Cardullo, Sunday)
Safer Ways to Enjoy the Super Bowl
Gathering virtually or with the people you live with is the safest way to celebrate the Super Bowl this year. If you do have a small gathering with people who don’t live with you, outdoors is safer than indoors. This year, choose a safer way to enjoy the game.

Steps to take if exposed to COVID-19 during a gathering
Safety advocates are urging parents to protect their kids by anchoring TVs to the wall before the big game. That’s because every 43 minutes, on average, a child is treated in an emergency-room visit due to falling televisions or furniture.

Anheuser-Busch InBev, the Belgian beer conglomerate, announced Monday it would not directly advertise its Budweiser brand during the Super Bowl for the first time in 37 years. Instead, the company has produced a digital 90-second video (without the Clydesdale draft horses) more akin to a public service announcement, celebrating American resilience in the face of the pandemic and ending with scenes of people getting vaccinated.
The company said rather than purchasing ad time for Budweiser during the game, it will “reallocate that investment to support the Ad Council and public awareness and education throughout the year for the COVID-19 vaccination effort.”
