Via SF Gate:

A construction worker at the site of Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas has tested positive for coronavirus, the construction venture announced Wednesday.

Allegiant Stadium will be the new home of the Raiders after they left Oakland following the 2019 NFL season. Mortenson/McCarthy, the stadium’s construction venture, announced that the diagnosis is not expected to delay the stadium from being completed on time.

“Per the CDC guidelines, and as a result of implementation of social distancing protocols, the worker was not in close contact with any other project worker and has been off site since last week,” the group said in a statement. “The individual is now self-isolating for 14 days and will not return to work until cleared to do so. Mortenson/McCarthy previously implemented stringent cleaning protocols on the project consistent with CDC guidelines. In accordance with those protocols, the area where the worker had been assigned, and the surrounding vicinity, was immediately shut down and sanitized. Work continues in other areas of the project that remain unaffected.”

What pandemic?  We need that new stadium finished before the NFL season starts.  The work must go on!
