Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart also tested positive for COVID-19. He posted a video on Instagram revealing the news and he encouraged everyone to practice social distancing. “Young people listen up… quit hangin’ out in groups and being selfish. This is no joke. I was tested 5 days ago and the results came back tonight, which were positive,” he wrote in the caption to the video. “I’ve been self quarantined since the test, thank goodness. COVID-19 must be taken w the highest of seriousness. I know it’s a #1 priority for our nation’s health experts, & we must get more testing ASAP!”

Smart went on to say that he doesn’t have any symptoms and he feels “great” but “younger generation in our country MUST self distance.”
