Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas, who reportedly had tested positive for coronavirus last week and was in isolation, has recovered from the illness and received a negative COVID-19 test result, according to a tweet from his grandson Brady Wayne Lukas Sunday morning.

“Wayne has completed the isolation period and has received a negative test result,” Lukas said. “He’s back!”

The 84-year-old conditioner was first reported to be positive for COVID-19 Aug. 12. In a tweet, Brady Lukas said, “Wayne recently tested positive for COVID-19 and has since been isolating at home and following CDC and health care provider recommendations. Fortunately, he had not been at work for several days prior to the first symptom, so no one else at the barn is impacted.”
