Super Bowl wasn’t superspreader, FDOH report says
Its case analysis, dubbed the Super Bowl Surveillance Period, was conducted specifically from Jan. 22 to Feb. 24. Health officials said they zeroed in their focus during January and February of 2021 to gather information related to the large events surrounding the Super Bowl happening in Tampa, according to the report. After a public all-call to report coronavirus infections following the Super Bowl, contact tracing and analyzing the data, researchers said the Super Bowl was not a superspreader event. FDOH-Hillsborough County said the first case related to the Super Bowl was reported on Feb. 4, when a set-up worker with the NFL Experience contracted the infection. The FDOH said 21 cases associated with official Super Bowl events likely attended festivities during the surveillance period and another 25 were likely exposed by those who attended events.
