DFW Restaurant Offers ‘No-Prep’ Meal Kit for a Safer, Distanced Super Bowl Sunday – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
As COVID-19 hospital stays decline, doctors are cautiously optimistic that people will use good judgment, avoid large gatherings, and avoid a surge after the Super Bowl.
Tiffany Lipscomb from Denton is hosting her own Super Bowl party from the comfort of her home.
“This year it’s just going to be my husband, myself, the dogs and cats and some really good food,” said Tiffany Lipscomb.
A friend of hers, Suzanne Johnson, owns The Chestnut Tree Teahouse and Bistro in Denton.
They encourage people to enjoy at home by offering game day food for delivery or pickup.
“She posted on Facebook yesterday about the Super Bowl kits and I said, ‘Let’s do this. ‘ This is going to be good. We can still enjoy it and find a safe way out, but it’s something to look forward to, ”said Lipscomb.
Tiffany said she usually celebrates with family, but this year she plans to virtually connect with them during the game to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
“I’ve known people who had it and I’ve known people who died from it. My parents are 65+ in the group so I really want to protect them, ”Lipscomb said.
Dr. Joseph Chang, Parkland’s chief medical officer, hopes everyone uses good judgment and stays home to avoid another surge.
“We can say that by Thanksgiving and the holidays, we understand when people really want to be with their families. I understand that. Nothing is more important to me than my family. But folks, this is soccer. Let’s see it on TV, ”said Dr. Chang.
If you do decide to watch the big game in a bar or restaurant, doctors say, mask yourself and remember that indoor activities are a higher source of risk when it comes to COVID-19.
