Feb. 4. Days before the big game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, healthcare officials are cautioning against Super Bowl watch parties.

“You don’t want parties with people that you haven’t had much contact with,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said on NBC’s “Today” show on Wednesday. Comparing watch parties to holidays like Thanksgiving and New Years, he said “every time we do have something like this, there always is a spike.”

Fifty percent of those surveyed by healthinsurance.com plan to watch the Super Bowl with just their immediate household this year.

The Centers for Disease Control says we should avoid crowded, poorly ventilated indoor spaces. The safest way to watch the Super Bowl this year is at home with people you live with.
