Chicago Bulls player, Garrett Temple, is in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19. According to the Chicago Tribune, Temple says he may have been exposed to the virus after spending Thanksgiving with family members in Louisiana. The ball player experienced shortness of breath, a cough, fatigue, and congestion.
“We have to be smart about who we’re around (and) about wearing a face mask wherever. I feel like if I had a face mask on during the time with my family, I definitely would have mitigated the risk of getting it,” Temple said to the Chicago Tribune.
Temple must have two negative tests before he can go back to practice with the Bulls.
“We’ve got to be aware of our surroundings, making sure we adhere to the guidelines. When we go on the road, guys shouldn’t be going out to lounges or bars, try to order food in, order some room service, just staying away from people. And if you do have to be around people, make sure you wear a mask,” Temple said.
