Default Washed Yeast that Froze

Just a quick question. I had 2 mason jars of washed yeast in a fridge in the garage. Went outside the other day and the contents were frozen solid. I'm assuming they have been frozen for about a week. Is the yeast dead and unusable? What do you think I should do?

Had the same thing happen. Thawed it out and it was fine. Of course, get a starter going ahead of brew day just to be sure!!
