Third Construction Worker at SoFi Stadium Tests Positive for COVID-19


INGLEWOOD (CNS) - A third construction worker at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood has tested positive for the coronavirus, it was reported today.

The announcement was made in an internal email from Turner-AECOM Hunt to its trade partners, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“First and most importantly the worker is doing well, had shown no symptoms, and is at home under self-quarantine,” the email said.

The worker was involved in light pole foundation work outside the $5 billion stadium structure and had not been on site since last week, The Times reported.

Equipment used by the worker was disinfected and other workers who may have worked closely with the employee are under self-quarantine until May 8, according to The Times.

An ironworker and an excavation worker tested positive for coronavirus last month.

The stadium is scheduled to open with a concert by country singer Kenny Chesney on Aug. 1.
