Marcus Smart has been cleared of COVID-19 by Massachusetts Department of Public Health

Celtics guard Marcus Smart has been cleared of COVID-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus.

Shams Charania of The Athletic first reported that Smart had recovered after announcing he tested positive over a week ago.

Smart, who was the only Celtics player to test positive, confirmed via Twitter on Sunday that the Massachusetts Department of Public Health cleared him of COVID-19 as of two days prior. Smart had been in self-quarantine since March 14 when he was originally tested, before he revealed the results five days later.

The longest tenured Celtic advocated to the public to take this COVID-19 pandemic serious by staying at home. Smart even appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo to talk about practicing social distancing and stopping the spread of the coronavirus.

Smart now joins Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and Christian Wood that have all recovered and been cleared of COVID-19, as the NBA has suspended play for the time being.
