Are you ready for some football? Don’t let COVID-19 stop you from having a good time; move the party to the driveway, almost like tailgating in the Before Time. Bring your TV outdoors with the help of an extension cord, or set up a portable projector to steam the event. Once you've got your viewing squared away, here's everything you need for your pandemic-proof Super Bowl party. That said, remember to mask up, keep your distance if interacting with folks outside of your household (especially when eating and drinking), and follow the CDC guidelines for gatherings.
