As positive COVID-19 cases keep rising in the United States, the NBA seems to be doing a good job by reducing the amount of players with the virus.
By tightening the rules when it comes to practice facility, traveling parties, and other regulations, the NBA has managed to have only one positive case.
The NBA and NBPA confirmed that out of the 492 players tested for COVID-19 since January 20, only one new player has returned a confirmed positive test.

Significant good news, considering there were more than 10 players who tested positive in the latest COVID-19 results.
Anyone who has returned a confirmed positive test, or has been identified as having been in close contact to an infected person, is isolated or quarantined until they are cleared under the rules established by the NBA and the Players Association in accordance with CDC guidance.
