ESPN: Saints head coach Sean Payton tests positive for coronavirus

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Per Schefter, Payton is the first person in the NFL world to test positive.

Payton told ESPN Thursday, “This is not just about social distancing. It’s shutting down here for a week to two weeks. If people understand the curve, and understand the bump, we can easily work together as a country to reduce it. Take a minute to understand what the experts are saying. It’s not complicated to do what they’re asking of us. Just that type of small investment by every one of us will have a dramatic impact.”
