Mahomes and the Chiefs now hope that they don’t have any positive tests of their own. The team is undergoing testing, hoping it will be able to play its game this weekend.
At home, Mahomes is apparently social distancing from his loved ones. His fiancee, Brittany Matthews, summed up his situation on social media.
“Imagine having to social distance from your significant other,” she wrote.

Mahomes admitted today that his postgame hug with Gilmore was a bit of a lapse in judgment. He said he was just trying to show good sportsmanship following a tough battle against the New England defense.
“It was a little bit of a mental lapse. Just trying to show sportsmanship,” Mahomes said.
