City of Long Beach Reminds Businesses to Celebrate Safely Super Bowl Weekend
Dear Business Owner, 

As Super Bowl Weekend approaches, the City of Long Beach is reminding residents to celebrate safely by adhering to the Safer at Home Health Order and other critical safety protocols to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and ensure everyone's safety.

While staying home remains critical to slow the spread of COVID-19 and save lives, the City encourages people to find alternative ways to engage with others and celebrate safely this Super Bowl Weekend such as, connecting with family and friends virtually, hosting a Super Bowl party over video, and sharing photos and videos enjoying the big game on a group chat.

Restaurants, brewpubs, breweries, bars, pubs, craft distilleries and wineries showing television, including the game for Super Bowl Sunday, are expected to adhere to the following requirements specified in the Safer at Home Health Order protocols:

  • Businesses may operate outdoors only
  • Alcohol is served only in the same transaction as a bona-fide meal for sit-down, dine-in meal service
  • Outdoor tables are separated by a minimum of eight feet between tables
  • On-site outdoor seating is limited to no more than six people from the same party at the same table
  • Customers remain seated at tables, except when necessary to use the restroom, pay their bill or order food and beverages
  • Customers are not allowed to consume food or beverages, including alcohol, if they are not seated at a table
  • Face coverings are only removed by customers when seated at a table within a designated outdoor dining area while eating or drinking
  • Additional staff should be present to monitor and manage customers, including but not limited to:
  • Ensuring physical distancing between customers
  • Ensuring customers do not consume beverages or food while not seated at a table
  • Ensuring people do not congregate in front of televisions or projection screens
