Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart has been cleared from COVID-19.

Smart revealed on Twitter Sunday night that he received the good news from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health on Friday.

The 26-year-old announced his positive diagnosis on March 19, a week after Utah Jazz stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell also tested positive for the new coronavirus. The Celtics played the Jazz on March 6.

The rest of the Celtics team and staff were tested as a precaution and the results were negative.
