All Thunder players and staff have tested negative for the coronavirus (COVID-19), the organization reported Wednesday.

The Thunder-Utah Jazz game on March 11 in Oklahoma City was postponed minutes before tip off after one Jazz player tested positive for the virus.

Soon afterward, the NBA season was postponed. The next day, a second Jazz player tested positive.

The Thunder organization said it did not use state resources and chose an alternative path for testing after recognizing the stress on the state of Oklahoma's medical system. 

As of Wednesday, 29 Oklahomans have tested positive for the virus with the majority of cases reported in Oklahoma County.
