During the construction work on the new stadium of the Las Vegas Raiders, an employee tested positive for the corona virus. However, the construction work will continue.
An employee at the construction site of Allegiant Stadium, the new home of the Las Vegas Raiders, tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. This was announced by the stadium officials on Wednesday.
However, work on the new home stadium will continue. The workers are said to have adhered to the distance regulations so that the affected employee was not in close contact with other project workers.
Construction stop not necessary – work continues
The infected man has been outside the construction site since last week. This was confirmed by Mortenson-McCarthy, the joint venture that is leading the construction of the stadium.
The worker is now expected to be in self-isolation for 14 days and will not return to work until he receives permission to do so, the company continued in its statement.
The $1.8 billion Allegiant Stadium is scheduled for completion by August 2020.
