Report: Saints fans will need vax or negative test to enter Superdome

The mayor of New Orleans is preparing to announce that proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test will be required to enter indoor venues in the city — including the Caesars Superdome for Saints games.

NOLA.com reported that Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s mandate could come as soon as Thursday afternoon.

With coronavirus vaccines now widespread across the U.S. and Canada and the delta variant beginning to spread, some professional sports teams are resorting to updated pandemic-era rules.

The NHL’s Winnipeg Jets said Wednesday that all fans who wish to attend games will need to provide proof of vaccination.

Both the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles announced that fans will be required to wear masks to access the indoor portions of their respective stadiums this season.

The Saints are scheduled for two home games during the preseason, Aug. 23 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Aug. 28 against the Arizona Cardinals. They open the regular season Sept. 12 at home against the Green Bay Packers.
