As some of the first and most notable cases are coming to some resolve, the clearing of two NBA players of the novel coronavirus is light at the end of the tunnel for many Americans.
After leading the charge of putting the NBA on hold, Utah Jazz team members Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, both of whom contracted Covid-19, have now been both given a clean bill of health by doctors.
Tim Bontemps of ESPN first reported the news by saying, “The Jazz say that all players and personnel, including Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, have been cleared by the state’s health department, which also determined that all of them, regardless of prior testing status, no longer pose a risk of infection to others.”
The NBA season was postponed on March 11 after it was discovered that Rudy Gobert tested positive for the Coronavirus. Mitchell tested positive for the disease the next day.
