Super Bowl to remain in Los Angeles despite Covid concerns

(KYMA, KECY/ NBC News) - The NFL has confirmed Super Bowl LVI will go on as planned February 13th in Los Angeles despite the Covid surge.

It will be held at SoFi Stadium and over 70,000 fans are expected.

Attendees will need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test and must wear masks except when eating.

LA hasn't hosted a Super Bowl in 29 years, when it was held at the Rose Bowl.

This year's game gives the city a chance to show off it's new $5.5 billion dollar stadium.

It opened in September of 2020 and serves as home field to both the LA Rams and Chargers.
