NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Superdome remains on track to open at full capacity for New Orleans Saints games this season. But only masked fans who provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken 72 hours prior to games may enter the statium. The City of New Orleans enacted new rules on Thursday for entertainment venues and indoor facilities hosting large social gatherings on the heels of spiking COVID-19 related hospitalizations in the state in recent weeks. That came after the State of Louisiana enacted a mask mandate for such venues. The Saints first home exhibition game is Aug. 23.
