The County of San Luis Obispo Public Health Department released updated recommendations on Monday for safely celebrating this year's Super Bowl Sunday.

The update comes from a COVID-19 wave fueled by the highly-contagious omicron variant.

"The safest way to watch the Super Bowl this year is at home with a small group of friends or family," County Health Officer, Dr. Penny Bornstein said.

Recommendations include: keeping gatherings small, getting tested 1 to 3 days prior to gathering and 3 to 5 days after gathering, keeping activities outdoors as much as possible or keeping windows and doors open, washing hands thoroughly and often, staying home if feeling sick and getting vaccinated, if eligible.

Booster and primary vaccines are available free of cost at pharmacies, doctors' offices, Public Health Department clinics and mobile clinics countywide.
