Saints head coach Sean Payton said the club is hoping to improve its odds against Coronavirus with a quarantine at a local hotel.

Payton said about 170 tier one and tier two staff have been invited to stay at the Lowe’s hotel through the club’s season opener vs Tampa Bay in September.

Payton said the stay isn’t mandatory.
