Yesterday was a day I wish upon no one! I went and got tested for the Covid-19 virus as many of you know and got my results back, and by God’s grace, it was negative. I also want to make a point that this is something not to be taken lightly and that we should all be careful. Despite my team mates and I taking all necessary safety precautions, we were still affected by this pandemic. I advise everyone to educate themselves on this virus and to follow all guidelines given by health professionals. To my guys Donovan (Mitchell) and Rudy (Gobert), I wish you speedy recovery with God’s grace.”
