Going to the big game? Be careful with COVID, Los Angeles County health officials urge

As the Dodgers continue the playoffs and the Lakers and Clippers begin a new NBA season, Los Angeles County health officials have again urged fans to exercise caution about COVID-19 while watching games in person or at a local sports bar.

The county’s public health department warned that the rise in COVID cases was seen in October last year due to more frequent gatherings of people watching sports events. Health officials noted that safety has improved this year thanks to the availability of vaccines, but the continued spread of the highly virulent variant of the Delta virus continues to pose a risk of infection in large crowds.

“We know that COVID-19 spreads more easily when people sing and sing close to each other without a mask, as we often do at parties or celebrations,” said District Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer. “The risk is especially high when these activities are performed indoors. While we are rooting for our teams, let’s continue to work together to avoid the winter surge that forces us to take steps back on the road to recovery. The best way to do this is to get vaccinated if we plan to go to places with an increased risk of transmission of the virus. ”

The county requires participants in major outdoor events such as the Dodger Games to show proof of vaccinations or a recent negative COVID test. Visitors must also wear face masks unless they are actively eating and drinking.

For indoor events such as the Laker and Clipper games, proof of vaccination is required.

Fans planning to watch games in the district’s indoor sports bars must also have at least one dose of the vaccine confirmed. From November 4th, confirmation of complete vaccination will be required. The same rule applies to employees of closed bars, breweries, wineries, distilleries and nightclubs.
