Soccer and football fans from around the world are gathering to watch their nations’ teams play in a tournament for the ages. Watch parties, restaurants, and venues big and small are filled with people wearing the colors and jerseys of their favorite teams and players, excitement filling the air as they tune in to watch. In this time of celebration, the beautiful game represents a chance for us to come together in a way we haven’t in years due to the global pandemic.


As you get ready for the festivities, take a few precautions to ensure that friends and loved ones remain healthy, both before and after.


Regular COVID-19 testing enables us to gather to enjoy the things we all love. Staying vigilant can help protect our friends and families around us. Virus season is unpredictable, so it’s imperative to stay prepared and test often.


In addition, ensure that you have received your annual flu shot. The flu is estimated to affect around 5–10% of adults and 20–30% of children globally. While seasonal changes are a factor, festive gatherings such as soccer watch parties also play an essential role in potentially spreading flu infections.

 

 

Get Game-Ready With Some Winning Strategies


In advance of the games and any gatherings, make a plan for friends and family to stay healthy.

 

● First, stock up on COVID-19 rapid tests to help rule in or rule out COVID-19. Test before you head out for any of the games and find out your infection status within minutes and help prevent the spread of transmission if you are positive.

 

● Next, if you or anyone in your group is feeling unwell with symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, or suspects a recent exposure, take one for the team, stay home—and take a Covid self test—and root from the sidelines.

 

● As you make your way to the game or watch venues, stay vigilant and avoid or limit touching common surfaces. Practice frequent handwashing or use alcohol-based sanitizer to help lower the risk of disease spread.

 

● Try to avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and cover your coughs and sneezes with either a tissue or your sleeve or elbow. Then wash your hands.

 

● Game time usually means bringing on a wonderful assortment of snacks and drinks, so be careful not to dip into common bowls without utensils or share beverages with others. Exercise caution around food shared among groups of people.

 

Now that we have our game-day strategy in place, let’s talk about post-game tips.

 


What to Look For: Similar Symptoms Between COVID-19 and Influenza


Viruses don’t discriminate, and they love large groups of people. As the world gets back to doing what it loves, we are seeing an increase in respiratory viruses, from COVID-19 to the flu and more.


As you return from the game celebrations, take note of any changes in how you are feeling. Respiratory viruses spread fast and can catch you off guard. Further, COVID-19 and flu symptoms are similar, so be on the watch for any symptoms below. It’s good to be prepared with at-home COVID-19 tests so you can quickly determine what you’re sick with and seek the appropriate treatment.


And remember that since COVID-19 and the flu are different viruses, to be protected against the flu, it is necessary to get a flu vaccine, as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).

 

 

Common symptoms between COVID-19 and the flu

 

 

● Fever or feeling feverish/having chills

 

● Cough

With a few virus-smart strategies, you can head out to celebrate your favorite teams with peace of mind.
