Mass testing of workers at a Nashville construction site has revealed more than 70 cases of COVID-19. The Metro Health Department is monitoring the site on the campus of Montgomery Bell Academy, a prominent private school off West End Avenue. General Contractor Brasfield & Gorrie is overseeing construction of an athletic facility on the campus. The contractor then closed the site for five days for cleaning and testing of workers.

Brasfield & Gorrie said "Brasfield & Gorrie continues to take proactive measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. As soon as we learned of the first positive case on the Montgomery Bell Academy Field House jobsite, we had the affected individual self-quarantined, initiated contact tracing, and cleaned the areas where the affected individual had been working. We later closed the site and began collaborating with the Metro Health Department when we became aware of more positive cases. We reopened the site with heightened safety measures, including symptom and temperature screenings conducted by a third party upon entry to the site. Additionally, at the recommendation of the Metro Health Department, Brasfield & Gorrie and its subcontractors instituted a COVID-19 testing requirement for all workers. Our current policy requires everyone on our jobsite to have either received a negative test or self-quarantined for the recommended period before returning to work. We will continue fully cooperating with the Metro Health Department. We place the highest importance on the safety of everyone on our jobsite, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected."
