Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell cleared from coronavirus
The first known NBA player to contract the coronavirus has finally been cleared.
The Utah Jazz announced on Friday that Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and all of the team’s players and personnel have been cleared by the Utah Department of Health to end their isolations, meaning they are not at risk of infecting anyone else with COVID-19.
All Utah Jazz players and personnel — including Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell — have been cleared by the Utah Department of Health, per team. DOH has determined that no Jazz player/staffer poses a risk of infection to others.

Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus on March 11, and his positive test essentially brought the entire sports world to a screeching halt. The NBA quickly postponed its season, setting off a domino effect of almost all other leagues doing the same.
Mitchell tested positive after Gobert. Mitchell and other Jazz players were reportedly upset with Gobert for how he handled himself. Gobert has since tried to make things right by urging people to take COVID-19 seriously and making a huge donation.
