Chiefs still have no positive COVID-19 tests since Jordan Ta’amu

At a time when the spread of COVID-19 is threatening to wreak havoc on the NFL season, the Chiefs have managed to prevent the spread in their own locker room.

Last week practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu tested positive, and then the Chiefs played against the Patriots just before New England cornerback Stephon Gilmore tested positive. That led to plenty of concerns that an outbreak could hit the Chiefs.

But that hasn’t happened. As of the latest round of daily testing, the Chiefs have still had zero positives since Ta’amu.

Just as the NFL is investigating the Titans to see why the virus spread to so many players and staffers on their team, the NFL should also look to the Chiefs to see if there are any best practices being implemented in Kansas City that can be recommended to the rest of the NFL. The Chiefs appear to have done everything right.

  1. “The Chiefs appear to have done everything right.“

    That Statement is not actually accurate since their head football coach is wearing a face shield which studies have shown is totally in effective in preventing the spread of the virus . Secondly after the patriots game both the Pats and the Chiefs we’re not social distancing per the league policy. They really got lucky no other players were infected sine a Pats player was shedding the virus after the game since he tested positive the next morning.

  2. You are correct about the post game non-distancing needing correction. However, I think that Reid’s face shield is adequate, especially in an outdoor venue. It deflects the air downward and not directly toward his listener.
