L.A. County Public Health officials said SoFi Stadium will require and provide KN95 masks for Super Bowl LVI.

Attendees can also expect to ushers to remind fans that masks must be worn at all times, except when eating or drinking.

Since the winter surge in positive COVID-19 cases, L.A. Public Health has urged residents to leave behind its cloth masks and opt for surgical grade masks, or higher.

The county have also required vaccination or negative COVID-19 checks at the entrance of “mega events” such as games at stadiums and the same will apply for the Super Bowl.

Kathryn Schloessman, president and CEO at Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission had previously mentioned that masks would be provided by SoFi Stadium during the Super Bowl, adding that it would be ready to make adjustments if necessary.

“I think we know what we have to do to put on a safe and healthy event,” Schloessman told L.A. Weekly on January 13. “I think everybody knows what the protocols are, they know if it got more serious, what they’d have to ‘up’ the protocols to be. We are very excited to bring people back to Los Angeles and show them that we can host a healthy and safe event, and I think everyone’s going to be excited to come out and support it.”
