Detroit Pistons Players & Staff Negative For Coronavirus
The NBA has postponed their season until further notice last night and now players and staff are being checked for COVID-19. This is good news as the Detroit Pistons have played the Utah Jazz a week ago, and now two players for the JAZZ tested positive for the virus. Because the Pistons played the Jazz within the last two weeks they were set to be self-quarantined for the next two weeks but early indications are that no players or staff have contracted the virus.
They sent a press release with more about it and they also encouraged staff members to work from home for the next two weeks. They mentioned in the press release that:
As a further precaution, the organization has directed all employees to work from home for the rest of this week while we consult with medical advisers regarding potential risk and mitigation.
The health and safety of our employees, players, partners and fans is our top priority. We are in close contact with our organization’s health care providers and medical experts, with government and public health officials, and with the NBA to ensure that the potential risk is well understood and all appropriate protective measures are taken.

Also another note, the NHL have suspended their season until further notice and I'm sure the Red Wings will be having to self-quarantine themselves since they played in the arena and used the same locker rooms over the last week.
