Football fans looking to attend next month's Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles will be required to wear masks at all times during the game unless they are actively eating or drinking, or face fines.

On Tuesday, Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer announced that KN95 masks will be distributed to fans, with the expectation that all county COVID-19 protocols be followed, according to the Daily Mail.

Prior to the February 13 event, 60,000 free take home test kits are also being distributed to fans at the Super Bowl Experience at the LA Convention Center starting on February 5.

Fans will also be able to get tested and vaccinated at the Super Bowl Experience starting February 5.

Those that receive a dose of the vaccine at the on-site clinic will receive a free ticket to Super Bowl Experience, according to NFL communications.

Super Bowl fans will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result taken within 24 hours if rapid antigen test, or 48 hours if PCR. All attendees over the age of two will be required to show one of the two.

As part of restrictions made in Los Angeles County, those that refuse to wear a mask after being told by facility staff to wear one could face a $250 fine.

"Our partnership with the NFL allows people to come together safely and experience the very best of American football. Straightforward public health measures including vaccinations, testing, masking and hand hygiene make it possible for so many to enjoy the Super Bowl Experience. We thank the NFL and all the fans for taking care of each other throughout the football season and look forward to welcoming everyone to an extraordinary Super Bowl in beautiful Los Angeles," said Ferrer.

Ferrer noted that fans will be consistently reminded to wear their masks at the event.

"California is excited to host this year's Super Bowl and welcome fans from across the country to the Golden State. We are working closely with the NFL and Los Angeles County to ensure COVID-19 mitigation strategies are in place that allow people to enjoy this important event safely," said California HHS Secretary, Dr. Mark Ghaly.

"It is equally important that we all continue to take steps to protect ourselves and our friends and families as we enjoy the game and the surrounding events, whether it be at the game, at home or in our community," he continued.
