CNN reporter Randi Kaye was horrified that Tampa Bay fans had taken to the streets to celebrate their Super Bowl victory — without wearing face masks.

“If you look at the scene, behind me you can see that a lot of people are here,” said Kaye. “They’re gathered. They’re already cheering for their favorite team. They’re outside. So it’s considered to be safer. And they are allowed to be here. They’re only supposed to take their masks off while they’re eating or drinking. But you can see quite a large crowd. Certainly not all in one single family or one single household that are mixing.”

Kaye showed video from  Ybor City of a “massive crowd, again, not many of them wearing a mask,” with Super Bowl revelers gathered outside the bars.

“There were some police there but we’re unsure about citations,” Kaye continued. “I spoke to the Tampa police and I asked them, ‘What are you doing about this?’ A lot of people were very concerned,” noting that the dance floors were full and many people were not wearing masks, despite local mandates.

“If you’re not wearing a mask and you can’t safely social distance, you could be fined up to $500, but that’s being largely ignored by many here in the city,” said Kaye. “The Tampa Police tell me that they’re very disappointed by what they’ve seen and some of these establishments do risk being shut down.”
