Champ and Major Biden will appear alongside First Lady Jill Biden in a PSA this weekend about mask wearing during Puppy Bowl XVII.
“For a lot of us during this pandemic, our pets have been such a source of joy and comfort. And maybe a bark or two on a video conference,” Biden said in the ad. “We owe it to them to keep ourselves healthy. So please keep wearing your masks, even when you’re out walking your dog.”
Puppy Bowl XVII will air on Animal Planet shortly before Super Bowl LV.
The head of the CDC is urging football fans to gather virtually to watch the event or with members of their household amid the coronavirus pandemic.
