The Saints franchise made the announcement official, citing the state of Covid-19 infections throughout the region.
“Mrs. Benson has appointed an internal management team that oversees all elements of our business relative to our Covid-19 planning, protocols and responses,” said New Orleans Saints President Dennis Lauscha. “Each morning she is briefed on the latest programs and plans and on our daily communication with ASM Global. Her overriding directive and priority is the health and safety of our fans, our employees, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome staff and all of the coaches and players.”
The team, along with health and safety experts, will continuously monitor trends to determine if fans will be able to attend the September 27 game vs. Green Bay.
