The Government of Saskatchewan has issued a reminder to residents about Super Bowl Sunday.

Because COVID-19 is airborne, the Saskatchewan Health Authority says shouting increases the risk of transmission. 

“Clap your hands, stomp your feet, and cheer your team on,” the government says.

Stay home and show your team colours but only members of your household are permitted to gather in an indoor space. Individuals who live alone may join another household of less than five under the current public health orders.

If you’re going to brave the cold and take your viewing party outside, remember that outdoor gatherings are limited to 10, physical distancing between households must be maintained and do not share food and drink. 

While you may take in the game on the big screen at a public facility or licensed establishment, you must abide by the public health orders and guidelines to keep these spaces safer for all customers and staff.  Sharing food between non-household members is not recommended. 

Individuals and venues may be subject to fines for failure to abide by public health orders and guidelines. Support your teams but also your chosen venues by abiding by the guidelines. 

The province has observed increased cases after holiday weekends and special events. The government asks people to stay apart and stay safe and keep Super Bowl a safe event for everyone.
