"It's better than I thought coming in," Mahomes said Saturday, according to ESPN's Adam Teicher. "That's kind of put my mind at ease, knowing that I'm going to be put in the best possible situation given this time."
In addition to using masks and following distancing requirements, the Chiefs installed plexiglass partitions between lockers to reduce the risk of a possible outbreak.
Mahomes was initially hesitant about returning to the practice facility but felt better after a tour of the building and Arrowhead Stadium, both of which will be used during training camp.
"You can just see that the NFL and the NFLPA are really taking this seriously (with) the social distancing, the wearing a mask," Mahomes said.
The Chiefs were the first team to lose a player to the COVID-19 opt-out arrangement, as right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif decided to skip the season to continue working at a care facility in Canada.
