The New Orleans Saints will be hosting 750 family members of players, coaches and staff at the upcoming Green Bay Packers game.

The Saints says that it is a strict test of health and safety protocols that the team has been working on with local and national health experts and city and state governmental leadership.

Both Governor Jon Bel Edwards and New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell are aware and have approved the safety test, they say.

At Sunday's game all of those attending will be seated in the West Plaza sideline. Minimal concessions will be available and no alcohol will be sold.

The protocols that the attendees will be subject to include health screenings, mobile ticketing, social distancing and other health and safety enhancements. Facemasks will be required for all those attending. They will also be subject to all of the protocols and procedures established by the CDC, NFL, Saints and ASM Global.

"Our goal is to use this strict test so that we can host as many fans as allowed based on local and state guidelines as soon as possible."
