ONN – Las Vegas Allegiant Stadium Interior Construction Cam Removed Day After Worker Has COVID-19
For reasons not publicly disclosed, the interior construction webcam for the Allegiant Stadium project was removed from the Raiders website.
This action was done the day after reports that a worker was tested positive for COVID-19. Mortenson McCarthy releases this statement:
Mortenson/McCarthy was notified today that a worker on the Allegiant Stadium project tested positive for COVID-19. 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 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.
Mortenson/McCarthy has the following preventative policies and procedures in place on the project to minimize the risk of coronavirus:
Strict Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance including directing team members who feel sick or have health-related concerns to stay home
A verbal health screen of all workers is conducted prior to beginning work on site
Implementation of social distancing and recommended personal hygiene practices
Reduced worker concentrations
Increased sanitation and cleaning throughout the project site including high traffic areas, which are sanitized multiple times per day. Those areas are further monitored to ensure appropriate social distancing. Hand wash stations and sanitizers are available
throughout the project site
Working with customers and trade partners to adjust workflows as necessary
Implementation of teleconferencing where applicable
Large group activities were suspended March 16
Our highest priority is the health and safety of our team members, project partners and the community. We will continue to follow guidance issued by the CDC along with local, state, and federal health authorities. We will implement further changes or adjustments as needed to help protect the health and safety of everyone on the project.
A Twitter tweet posted by Alan Snel of the Las Vegas Sports Network and LVSportsBiz.com, and revealed that social distancing practices were not being consistently used at the Allegiant Stadium Construction Project Site:
