Ahead of the big game, local officials chime in on a game plan for staying safe here while we watch the action unfold in Tampa.
HSHS Infection Prevention Manager, Sue Galoff said even if you’ve already received the COVID-19 vaccine, it’s unknown if you could contract the virus and spread it to others “We are still learning so much about this vaccine, and now there are new strains of Coronavirus showing up around the
world, so now is not the time to penalize ourselves by becoming lax about the guidelines,” she said. Galoff’s recommendation is to keep your football party small, and limited to only those who live in your household.
• Opt for a more digital experience by watching the game together, virtually; Zoom is offering free football backgrounds for a limited time around February 7
• Keep hand sanitizer in common areas like the kitchen and living room
• Get outside for fresh air, and more social distancing, during halftime
• Consider individual food servings to avoid sharing utensils and passing dishes
• If serving drinks, consider pre-mixing a few cocktails and serving from a pitcher to avoid everyone handling the same ingredients and bottles
