Sacramento County directed its citizens to stay at home, and the Kings are no exception.
“[All] basketball operations activities at the team’s practice facility have been suspended until further notice," the Kings said in a statement Tuesday. "During this time, Kings players, coaches and staff have been asked to stay at home and follow CDC guidelines to maintain health and safety.”
The Kings reiterated that currently none of their players have experienced symptoms of the coronavirus and that they check in daily with the team’s medical staff for confirmation.
NBC Sports California confirmed through a league source that no Kings player has been tested for the virus due to a shortage of tests in Sacramento County. Only symptomatic patients and potentially exposed health care workers are currently receiving tests due to the lack of availability.
With the NBA season suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic, the team remains in constant communication with both the league and public health officials.
Sacramento County health officials issued the directive earlier Tuesday, which the team and staff members in the area will abide by.
