Infectious disease expert discusses COVID vaccine, safety at Bills game

Buffalo Bills

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Infectious disease experts like Dr. Thomas Russo are more worried about COVID cases popping up at viewing parties than at Bills Stadium.

Russo talked about his concerns for Saturday with NEWS10’s sister station. He’s asking fans not to gather in groups to watch this big game.

“For those of you that are watching at home, please be careful, don’t cross social bubbles,” Russo said. “We don’t want to exacerbate a situation where we’ve already had a bump of cases because of the holiday events.”

Russo says fans going to the game on Saturday should try to avoid eating or drinking in the stadium. He says keeping your mask up for the entire game is the best way to stay safe.
