Construction contractor at Amon G. Carter Stadium tests positive for COVID-19
Texas Christian University has learned that a Turner Construction employee working at Amon G. Carter Stadium has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual is currently doing well, receiving care and recovering at home.
The contractor was last at the work site March 24 and worked primarily outside. The area was cleared of personnel and sanitized per public health guidance. The construction work group was following social distancing protocols and the two team members that were in closest contact with the COVID-19 positive individual are currently in a 14-day quarantine and self-monitoring period. Neither are currently showing symptoms.
“Our thoughts are with the contractor and their family, and all those affected by COVID-19,” Jane Torgerson, M.D., medical director for Brown-Lupton Health Center, said in an email to campus. “The general risk to the TCU community from this case is considered low, given the limited exposure the individual had on campus and the work team’s adherence to CDC guidelines.”
This is the first report of a positive COVID-19 case on the TCU campus. COVID-19 updates for the TCU campus will continue to be posted on this site.
