DEVELOPING: Saints Head Coach Sean Payton Tests Positive For Coronavirus

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton has tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Payton is the first NFL head coach to test positive for the virus.

Coronavirus symptoms include fever, dry cough and shortness of breath. While flu symptoms are similar, they’re often differentiated by high fever, exhaustion, chills, dry cough and body aches.


Isolation is encouraged if you feel you’re coming down with flu-like symptoms that could be related to the coronavirus. Seek medical attention through your local emergency healthcare provider and stay away from other in close proximity.

Large, crowded areas should be avoided as movie theaters, work conferences and other traffic-heavy events are being shutdown across the country per state jurisdictions at the urging of the CDC. Disneyland in California closed last week amid coronavirus concerns as well as Disney World and Universal Studios theme parks in Orlando, Florida, whose closures went into effect over the weekend.
