Los Angeles County officials gathered at SoFi Stadium Wednesday to discuss safety measures and protocols that will be in place at the Super Bowl on Feb. 13.
All Super Bowl attendees will be given KN95 masks, making it easier for fans to comply with county masking requirements, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer said during a news conference.
Masks will also be available at all NFL events, including the Super Bowl Experience being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center this weekend. Attendees for the event will be able to take a free rapid antigen test onsite, according to Ferrer. They will also be given Covid-19 test kits to take home so they can take a test before gathering to watch the Super Bowl.
Proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test is required for entry at these events, Ferrer said.
More than 400 automated touchless hand sanitizing stations will be available for attendees at SoFi Stadium, SoFi Stadium Senior Advisor of Facilities Russ Simons said. Simons added that they will continue to work with the health department to follow Covid-19 safety protocols.
Simons emphasized that masks will be mandatory unless actively eating or drinking. Ambassadors will be onsite to remind attendees to keep their masks on at all times, he said.
