The effort to complete construction of SoFi Stadium has seen a fifth worker test positive for COVID-19.

According to Nathan Fenno of the Los Angeles Times, an internal email from Turner-AECOM Hunt confirmed to partners of the project the positive test.

“First and most importantly the staff member is doing well with minor symptoms, and is at home under self-quarantine,” the email said.

No other employees were thoughts to have come in close contact with the person, who is the fifth person involved with the project to have a confirmed case since late March.

The first schedule NFL events at the stadium are preseason games for the Rams and Chargers in early August against the New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys, respectively. The first regular season game scheduled is for September 13 between the Rams and Cowboys.

  1. No doubt money and favors changed hands to keep construction going. There’s so many ways to launder money in construction that they couldn’t let it stop.

  2. 1,383 construction workers
    5 have Novel 19 corona covid

  3. Every large job site has its share of cases. Just like any large employment. Its the new norm. Nothing spectacular that should stop progress. The show must go on.

  4. The “virus” is an object of thought, not a physical thing. You can’t measure, touch or feel something that doesn’t physically exist. It’s a story the bewildered populace are being bombarded with, to obviously devastatingly psychological effect.

  5. I wonder what it would look like if the number of injuries on a work site was reported. I know if isn’t as sexy as a virus but what if you found out 30 workers have been injured during construction. but I guess no one would care about that.

  6. That’s nothin’. We’ve got ’em beat in Las Vegas by at least 11 or 12 cases!

    If it’s that simple, then why’s it causing giant meat producing facilities to shut down entirely when large chunks of the workforce inevitably get sick.

  8. Come and listen to a story about a man name Stan. A poor Missouri man who barely kept his family fed. And then one day he was shopin for some food and up from the ground came a bubblin store. Walmart that is, Huge Money, Real Estate. Well, the first thing you know Stan’s a millionaire. Kinfolk said buy sport teams and move away from here. Said take the Rams to California its the place you ought to be. So he loaded up the team and moved to
    Beverly. SoFi Stadium, Zero Fans, 5 Billion and Counting,

    This guy never saw a Rams article he could stay away from. Are you really going to let a billionaire live in your head rent-free?

  10. Uh Oh. There could be seriously 100 law suits involved with this $6 billion ($1.8 Billion budget) fiasco. There will be few “LA” Charger fans in the stands. The NFL has a major problem with this franchise “re-location” and they’re sweeping it under the rug. Sad.
