This Sunday is the big game. The ‘ship is either staying right there in Tampa or heading up north to Kansas City. It’s the GOAT versus the young gun.
But if you’re trying to enjoy the game, or the commercials, with a group of friends, Dr. Anthony Fauci is here to make you second guess yourself.
He said during TV interviews Wednesday that now isn’t the time to invite people over for watch parties because of the possibility that they’re infected with the coronavirus and could sicken others.
Big events like Sunday’s game in Tampa, Florida, between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are always a cause for concern over the potential for virus spread, Fauci said.
“You don’t want parties with people that you haven’t had much contact with,” he told NBC’s “Today” show. “You just don’t know if they’re infected, so, as difficult as that is, at least this time around, just lay low and cool it.”
The Super Bowl itself will also be a pared down event, with only 22,000 fans allows inside the stadium on account of local coronavirus restrictions.
