Hold the Line on Super Bowl Sunday: Don’t Reverse Our Pandemic Progress

Marin County Public Health is urging residents to make a goal line defensive stand against COVID-19 and not gather to watch this Sunday’s Super Bowl. Whether a fan is cheering for the Chiefs, the Buccaneers, the halftime entertainers, or just the commercials, everyone needs to root hardest for each other’s health.

Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County’s Public Health Officer, can point to data showing surges in coronavirus cases after major holidays over the past year. Local case rates have been steadily declining in recent weeks.

“I hope we’ve learned from our past holiday surges that reopening safely is in our hands,” Willis said. “This is one year when I’m less sad none of our local teams made it that far. Let’s not let Super Bowl gatherings reverse our progress.”

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recorded more than 976,000 new cases of the novel coronavirus in the past week, and that weekly figure tends to spike around times of holidays and traditional gatherings. Contact tracing has proved that gatherings continue to fuel the virus’ spread both locally and nationwide.

Small private gatherings are allowed in Marin again, but only outdoors and with the following restrictions:

  • Masks and physical distancing are required
  • No more than three separate households should attend (including the host’s)
  • Gatherings should be two hours or less
  • Those with COVID-19 symptoms must not attend
  • Those at high risk of severe illness strongly encouraged not to attend
  • Singing, shouting, chanting, or cheering strongly discouraged

Learn more about the COVID-19 Vaccine:

How vaccines work

Vaccines help our immune system fight infections in the future. COVID-19 vaccines will protect us from the virus that causes COVID-19 without having to get the illness. 

It typically takes a few weeks after the last dose in a series to become fully protected. On the days after taking the vaccine, you may have a sore arm, aches, fatigue or fever, but these are not harmful. These symptoms signal that your immune system is developing protection from the virus. 

Benefits of getting vaccinated

COVID-19 vaccines are meant to prevent you from getting COVID-19 and from spreading it to others. The ability of COVID-19 vaccines to protect us from spreading the virus to others is not yet known, but is being studied carefully.

Read more at CDC’s Benefits of Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine.

Vaccine Safety

COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the FDA have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials.

The first two vaccines are up to 95% effectiveness against a person becoming ill with COVID-19.

The U.S. vaccine safety system ensures that all vaccines are as safe as possible. Learn how the federal government is working to ensure the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.
