Second Worker Tests Positive, Stadium Work Continues

Construction on the Las Vegas Raiders' Allegiant Stadium continues despite two on-site workers testing positive for COVID-19, a stadium official told ESPN.

Last Wednesday, stadium construction firm Mortenson-McCarthy announced that a worker had tested positive for COVID-19, joining another worker who had tested positive in March. The company said in a release that the worker who tested positive last week had not been in close contact with other employees because of social distancing protocols at the construction site.

The $1.97 billion stadium remains on schedule and on budget, and is expected to be completed July 31, with an opening event tentatively scheduled for Aug. 16. The NFL season is scheduled to kick off Sept. 10, though the lingering impact of the pandemic has put that starting date in peril.
