The Toronto Raptors say all members of their travel party — players, coaches, staff — have tested negative for the coronavirus, with one result still pending.

The Raptors were tested in Toronto on Wednesday night, two nights after they played the Utah Jazz. A pair of Jazz players, Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, have tested positive for COVID-19. Gobert and Mitchell both played in that game against Toronto.

The Raptors said they’ll continue to be vigilant even after the test results came back negative. The team says “those asked to self-isolate by Toronto Public Health will continue to do so. We will all practice social distancing and good hand hygiene, and — most importantly — carefully monitor our health.”

Toronto officials also have sought ongoing guidance from Canadian health officials and infectious disease experts.
