Saints Will Host Carolina Inside Dome In New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS: The New Orleans Saints will be hosting the Carolina Panthers on Sunday inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The Saints released a statement Monday saying president Dennis Lauscha and team staff met with New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell to talk about how to get fans safely back into the stadium for games this season. The meeting included epidemiologists and the mayor's own medical advisers.
The team noted in a statement that New Orleans' COVID-19 positivity rates remain stable.
The city currently has one of the lowest rates in the nation, the Saints said. We all agree that the priority is to make sure our citys residents and our fans are safe and not to regress from the progress that has been made.
