Badgers football kicks off tonight in Madison.
Though there will be no fans in the stands, health experts are reminding everyone that game day must look different this year.
Dr. Jeff Pothof, UW Health’s chief quality officer, recommends:
-No large gatherings. This includes parties and tailgating. Even large gatherings outside increase the risk of transmission.
-Celebrate and watch the game with those living in your household, or have virtual watch parties.
-If you live elsewhere around the state, enjoy the game from the safety of your home, following all local guidelines. Please do not travel to Madison for gameday.
-Please follow local health guidelines by wearing a face covering and physically distancing.
