Raptors Announce Negative Test Results for Entire Travelling Party
Upon the news of Rudy Gobert testing positive for coronavirus, each of the teams the Utah Jazz have played in the 10 days prior were asked to self-quarantine as they all underwent testing.
The Toronto Raptors were the last team to play against the Jazz.
“Our players, coaches and traveling staff have all been advised to go into self-isolation for 14 days,” said the Toronto Raptors in an official team statement. “Which means minimizing contact in accordance with public health guidelines. Our team doctors remain in communication with infection control specialists and public health authorities, and we will continue to abide by their advice.”

On Friday, the Toronto Raptors announced that the tests for each member of the traveling party returned negative. The positive news comes as a huge relief as the Raptors were involved in two various charity events upon returning home from their five-game road trip.
Each of the other teams, including the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics announced that their rounds of testing returned negative as well.
