New Cluster of Seven COVID-19 Cases Bloom at Construction Site in Kansas City

Work at Kansas City, Kansas', Donnelly College continues under disinfecting, distancing and personal protective equipment guidelines

A new cluster of COVID-19 cases has been reported at a Kansas City, Kansas, construction site.

Seven workers from the Donnelly College work site have all contracted the virus.

But a construction crew was back at the site Monday morning working on the new building for a teacher's college currently scheduled to be completed in late July or early August.

On Friday, the site was shut down for some heavy-duty disinfecting after a sixth worker from the site tested positive for COVID-19.

But Jerry Katlin, the president of Overland Park-based Excel Corporation, the general contractor for the project, said he was told of a seventh case Monday. He also said the seven cases come from five different subcontractors for the project.
