This year, watching the Super Bowl could be more hazardous than playing in it. And a “super spread” no longer means a favorable betting line or a great snack buffet.

That’s this observer’s takeaway from warnings made today by Vermont Health Commissioner Mark Levine about practicing pandemic safety at Super Bowl parties this weekend.

At today’s press conference, Levine said he is more concerned about Super Bowl party super Super spreaders than transmission from youth sports.

“It has the potential to ruin all the progress we have made,” Health Commissioner Mark Levine said.

The Health Department issued the following direction Thursday:

If you’re planning to watch the Super Bowl this Sunday, remember: it’s safest to celebrate with the people you live with.

Check out some of the CDC’s tips — like hosting a virtual watch party or starting a text group with other fans to chat while you watch. Make your own special game-day apps and snacks, or get take-out food to enjoy with those you live with (Bonus: supports your local food establishments!)

Gathering with people from outside your own household increases the chances of spreading of COVID-19, especially if you’re indoors, close together, and eating or drinking without masks. Many cases and several outbreaks started with get togethers.

As Dr. Anthony Fauci put it on ABC’s “Good Morning America”: “You don’t want parties with people that you haven’t had much contact with. You just don’t know if they’re infected. So as difficult as that is, at least this time around, just lay low and cool it.”

So, root for your favorite team, debate the best commercial, and enjoy the game safely!

  1. Comrades,

    Useless to complain! You lucky Party allow game to be played at all! Just take knee!

  2. It’s none of Commissioner Levine’s business what I do or do not do in my home,he and his boss the Liar can go pound sand.

  3. The only super spreads I’m going have are cheese spread, avocado spread, and Doritos ( Nacho Cheese )

  4. Here’s a video….at 48 minutes there is a gentleman from our neighboring state, Massachusetts. This is a republican, showing republican corruption in their primary election.

    I would suspect there is more going on in Vermont than we know. It would be wise for us to do a physical audit. Specifically for Lt. Gov……

    This is in court apparently…….haven’t checked for validity. But based upon the censoring….they are perhaps very close to the truth. We all know about censoring and propaganda in Vermont.

    • Lindell and the PROFESSIONALS in intelligence did a fabulous job in their documentary called ABSOLUTE PROOF – the system that tracked the most finite detailed data has been observing since 2016 – maybe earlier!

      You are watching a show – I hear 49 states were observed and yes Neil we should be looking into Dominion machines in VT along with how some of these people actually got into office.

      The Best is Yet to Come!!!

  5. Definitely watch out for the double dippers!

    How are you going to eat and drink with masks on?

    Suddenly next month there will no longer be a crisis, the virus will have “mutated” it this will all be gone. Gee I wonder how that could possibly happen?
