Saints, Pelicans owner Gayle Benson: 'We need to flatten this curve together'

New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner Gayle Benson updated the health of head coach Sean Payton and discussed the importance of flattening the curve when she joined the Pelicans podcast Wednesday.

Benson said that Payton, who tested positive for Covid-19, is doing better. 

"You know, he's talking about going to play golf. So, he is getting better," Benson said. "But he's still quarantined. So, he still has to kind of cool it. But he is getting better.

"I'm glad that he was able to stay home and take care of himself doing this time."

Benson also stressed the importance of flattening the curve saying this virus "is really bigger than basketball and football."

"I just miss everyone so much," she said. "The players, the fans, the employees just everybody. It's so frustrating, but we need to flatten this curve together."
