The Celtics released a statement on Thursday in response to the NBA suspending the 2019-20 season, as well as the concern regarding the Jazz’s visit to Boston on March 6 — given two of Utah’s players have preliminarily tested positive for COVID-19.
The Celtics have been in “constant communication” with Massachusetts Department of Public Health officials and Larry Madoff MD of the Bureau of Infectious Disease and Laboratory Sciences at the Department. From their discussion on the matter, the Department of Public Health told the Celtics “based on those players’ health statuses during this period, it is unlikely that anyone from the team came into contact with them while they were contagious.”
Still, Celtics players and staff who were in “close contact with the Utah players or who traveled to Milwaukee” will be self-quarantined through the weekend. They will be tested for COVID-19 during that time.
