In a statement to the media, the company said:

As of today, we have confirmed three new positive cases on site.

In compliance with CDC guidelines and OSHA safety standards, Resorts World Las Vegas and W.A. Richardson Builders continues to follow and implement maximum preventative policies and procedures to minimize risk of transmission.

Previously, the company has said sections of the job site were closed down out of an abundance of caution, and workers begin their shifts with a wellness screening.

Other safety measures, such as additional handwashing stations and smaller crew sizes, were also enacted.


Last week, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority CEO Steve Hill responded to COVID-19 concerns at construction sites by saying in part, "There have been some cases of coronavirus on some large projects... there has been no indication that I'm aware of where those cases have led to a spread as the result."
