Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and the rest of Utah Jazz’s team and staff have been medically cleared by state officials after observing a two-week period of self-isolation caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19).
The team announced Friday that the Utah Department of Health has determined that the players and staffers “no longer pose a risk of infection to others.”
The Jazz added that players would continue to observe social distancing and only leave their homes for necessary trips.
Shortly after his team’s statement, Mitchell posted a gif of a child dancing on a chair.
On a more serious note… let’s continue to practice social distancing and remember… even though you may not have symptoms you still may be infected!! Let’s keep everyone in our prayers and stay safe❤️??

Earlier this week, Gobert, who has donated more than $500,000 to part-time Jazz employees and coronavirus-related services, said a loss of smell and taste were two of the symptoms he suffered.

The NBA season reminds suspended indefinitely.
There have been about 100,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States, more than any other country.
