Ways to keep you healthy while celebrating the Super Bowl 

Naples, Fla. — The Florida Department of Health in Collier County (DOH-Collier) encourages healthy habits to help residents and visitors celebrate the Super Bowl.

Many traditional Super Bowl activities can be high-risk for spreading viruses, including COVID-19. There are several safe ways to enjoy the big game. The healthy habits below can help keep you and your family safe.

Mask Up Against COVID-19. While watching the Super Bowl, it is important to remember COVID-19 is still in our community. Ways to watch the big game at home include:

  • Have a small party with only the people who live in your household. Remember: students visiting from college and relatives from out of state or city, county, etc… are considered outside of your household.
  • Have a virtual party with friends and family.
  • Watch the big game from home.
  • Start a group chat with friends and family to chat about the game.

It is important to avoid the following:

  • Visiting the homes of others, unless you can wear a mask or cloth face covering and socially distance.
  • Large gatherings; per the State Surgeon General’s Public Health Advisory avoid gatherings of 10 or larger.
  • Sharing food, cups, forks, spoons, knives, and serving utensils.
  • Crowded indoor events.

Catch the game, not COVID-19!
