My laptop got infected by ransomware, can formatting remove it?

Hello! I got infected by a ransomware yesterday. My files all turned into .gujd files and I couldn’t recover it anymore. My last resort is to format may laptop as well as my flash drive which was also infected. I already formatted my flash drive but I used my infected laptop to format it, can I still use my flash drive safely? Is it okay to format a flash drive on an infected laptop?
