SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News)- Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell video conferenced with Good Morning America Monday morning while in quarantine.
“I don’t have any symptoms. If it wasn’t public knowledge that I was sick, you wouldn’t know it,” Mitchell told Robin Roberts. “I think that’s the scariest part about this virus,” he added. “You may seem fine, be fine and you never know who you may be talking to who they’re going home to.”

Because many people with the virus are asymptomatic, public health officials are placing responsibility on individuals to help slow the pandemic with social distancing.
Simply put, it means that people stay far enough away from each other so that the coronavirus – or any pathogen – cannot spread from one person to another.
The Utah Jazz recently announced that Mitchell will be helping fund meals for food-insecure students in Utah’s Granite School District.
