SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Health officials worried about possible super spreader events are warning San Diegans about Super Bowl parties.

The county is urging residents to avoid large gatherings ahead of the Big Game.

“The safest way to gather and celebrate the Super Bowl is virtually, or with people you live with,” said Wilma J. Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “Local case numbers have been on a downward trend and we want to keep the region moving in the right direction toward the goal line.”

Between January 28 and February 3, the county says it identified 63 community outbreaks.

The CDC also put out a list of safer ways to celebrate. Check out the list below:

  • Wear clothing or decorate your home with your favorite team’s logo or colors.
  • Make appetizers or snacks with the people you live with to enjoy while watching the game and share the recipes with your friends and family.
  • Start a text group with other fans to chat about the game while watching.

Attend an outdoor viewing party where viewers can sit 6 feet apart.

  • Use a projector screen to broadcast the game.
  • Sit at least 6 feet away from people you don’t live with.
