Under L.A. County guidelines, all fans attending the Super Bowl are required to wear masks when not actively eating or drinking.
A ton of people have been finding a work-around on that rule by just keeping some food or a drink nearby so they don’t have to rock their mask the entire time. That won’t be possible for many of them come Super Bowl Sunday, because the officials in the stadium are on to them.
“That doesn’t mean buy a bucket of popcorn and eat it for two hours. Actively eating and drinking,” a SoFi Stadium executive said according to Fox 5 in San Diego, adding, “We are on to you.”
Officials are ready to crack down on these fans, but it will be quite the task with more than 70,000 people inside SoFi stadium.
“It’s a challenge. It’s a very large building but we are prepared and ready to go,” the NFL’s head of live events said, continuing … “We have had two years of experience of planning under COVID and we’re extremely confident in the plans that we have in place.”
Along with wearing masks, those attending the Super Bowl will be required to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within two days of the game.
Free KN95 face masks will be given out to spectators who are in attendance for the Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium.
