Drake reportedly self-quarantined himself at his home in Toronto after being spotted at Nice Guy in West Hollywood with Brooklyn Nets player Kevin Durant, who tested positive for Coronavirus, according to Page Six. Drizzy took to Instagram with his dad, Dennis Graham, to reveal that he tested negative for the rapidly spreading virus.

“Yeah, I had to do a test, but it came back negative, though,” Drake said in video footage obtained by TMZ. “That test is uncomfortable though, they put that Q-tip all the way up inside your thoughts and s–t.”

Three other players from the Brooklyn Nets have tested positive for Coronavirus as well, according to Page Six, with only one showing symptoms.

“All four players are presently isolated and under the care of team physicians,” the team said in a statement. “The organization is currently notifying anyone who has had known contact with the players, including recent opponents, and is working closely with state and local health authorities on reporting. All players and members of the Nets travel party are being asked to remain isolated, closely monitor their health and maintain constant communication with team medical staff.”

The statement continued, “The health of our players and staff is of the highest priority to the organization and the team is doing everything within its power to ensure that those affected receive the best care possible.”

The NBA recently suspended its’ season indefinitely amid the outbreak of the virus. “The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic,” the league said in a statement, according to The New York Times.

The suspension came after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for Coronavirus. The following day, his teammate Donovan Mitchell, was diagnosed with the virus as well.

“The individual’s symptoms diminished over the course of today, however in a precautionary measure, and in consultation and cooperation with NBA medical staff and Oklahoma health officials, the decision was made to test for Covid-19,” the Utah Jazz said in a statement.
