OKC Thunder Making Plans With Other NBA Teams To Combat Coronavirus
OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma City Thunder will be talking with other NBA teams about how to combat the coronavirus.
A conference call will be happening across the NBA Monday, specifically with different doctors and trainers to focus on how the league can tackle the virus that's already infected more than 100,000 people across the world.
A memo went out to teams over the weekend, directing them to have several plans in place by Tuesday. The NBA wants teams including the Thunder, to identify a facility for coronavirus testing.
The league is also ordering teams to limit the amount of staff that directly interacts with the players, and to have meetings with an infectious disease specialist.
The Thunder and other teams have also been told to prepare to play without fans if the virus gets worse.
When it comes to fans, the NBA is also advising players to avoid contact including handshakes and signing autographs.
The Thunder play at home on Wednesday against the Utah Jazz.
