After consultation with infectious disease experts at Rush University Medical Center and the NBA regarding COVID-19 guidelines, the Bulls are under quarantine through March 22. That's two weeks after they played the Nets, who announced Tuesday that four players tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
No member of the Bulls' traveling party has reported symptomatic of the virus, which has shut down the sports world and most of society in a global pandemic. All members of the traveling party have been given specific guidelines and instructions on what to do and where to go for testing should symptoms present. The Bulls, like all teams, held an informational meeting regarding the situation on Monday at the Advocate Center.
That marked their first group gathering since the Bulls flew home from Orlando, Fla., where they had traveled to play the Magic in a game that never happened.
The Bulls played the Nets in Brooklyn on March 8. Kevin Durant chose to go public with his positive test, saying he feels fine and doing so to try to convey how serious this pandemic is.
