NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) - The New Orleans Saints had a “productive” meeting Monday, Oct. 19 with New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, her administration, and the president and CEO of Ochsner Health about a phased approach to safely returning fans to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, according to team spokesperson Greg Bensel.

“We all agree that the priority is to make sure our city’s residents and our fans are safe and not to regress from the progress that has been made,” the Saints said in a statement.

The meeting with the mayor comes almost a week after the Saints announced they were in talks with LSU officials about moving their home games to Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge.

The Saints will host the Carolina Panthers at noon Sunday, Oct. 25 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome without fans in attendance.
