Allegiant Stadium Work Continues After Second Positive Test

A second worker at Allegiant Stadium has tested positive for coronavirus, but Moretenson-McCarthy, the joint venture building the venue, said work "continues in other areas of the project that remain unaffected," according to Mick Akers of the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL. The first confirmed new coronavirus case was reported by stadium officials last month, after which Mortenson-McCarthy "implemented stringent cleaning protocols on the project consistent" with CDC guidelines. Stadium officials are working with customers and trade partners to "adjust workflows as necessary" and are "utilizing teleconferencing where applicable" (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 4/9).

WORK CONTINUES AT SOFI: In L.A., Nathan Fenno notes a second construction worker at the SoFi Stadium development in Inglewood "has tested positive" for coronavirus. But Turner-AECOM Hunt, the joint venture overseeing the project, in an email to workers wrote the project "REMAINS OPEN TO WORK WITHOUT RESTRICTION" because the individual had "not at any time entered the building or used any of its common areas." Starting last night, all employees on the project "will have their temperature taken with noncontact thermometers at six access points to the site" (L.A. TIMES, 4/9).
