The first Las Vegas Raiders campaign in the Allegiant Stadium has already been hampered by the coronavirus pandemic, which has suspended plans to open the new stadium. Worse, it turned out that one of the construction workers had tested positive for the coronavirus.
The construction company Mortenson/McCarthy, which has taken over control of the construction process, has stated that the process is not expected to have a negative effect on the construction schedule of the Raders Stadium.
Eric Ting from the NF door:
In accordance with the CDC guidelines and after the implementation of social distance protocols, the employee has not been in close contact with another project employee and has been out since last week, according to a statement of the group. The person is now self-employed within 14 days and only goes back to work after obtaining a permit. Mortenson/McCarthy had previously implemented strict remediation protocols for the project, in accordance with the CDC guidelines. In accordance with these protocols, the area in which the employee was appointed and the surrounding areas were immediately sealed and disinfected. Work will continue in other areas of the project not covered by this measure.
It only provides information on the current status of the stadium. The State of Nevada closed down all non-essential businesses as a result of the virus outbreak, but the construction of the Rayders Stadium in Algiers is exempt from government measures.
This would certainly endanger many workers, but it seems to be in the interest of the state to complete the construction of a new robber’s house as soon as possible.
