A week-and-a-half ago, Charles Barkley felt sick – a scary proposition in the time of coronavirus.

Thankfully, he received good news.

Turner Sports:

Barkley did the responsible thing by self-quarantining while awaiting results. It’s important for all of us to socially distance as much as feasible. It’s essential for everyone with an unknown illness that even might be COVID-19 to isolate. Now that he knows he tested negative for coronavirus, Barkley can shift to the slightly lower level of distancing.

Hopefully, testing will become more widely available so more people can take these steps.
