"Obviously knowing that I went up to him after the game and just gave him a high five like I've done my whole career and not thinking about it was a little bit of a mental lapse," Mahomes said at aWednesday.
"Obviously had a little lapse at the end of the game, just trying to show respect to a great football player who I hope is getting better very quickly," he later added. "I'll just try to keep away from that and try not to do it again."
Dr. Fauci Sends COVID Skeptics This Fiery Message
"Get rid of these ridiculous conspiracy theories and realize this is a public health crisis," Dr. Fauci said. “The data speak for themselves.”Dr. Fauci was asked by the Board about the state-by-state restrictions being implemented. Some are instituting curfews; other stay-at-home advisories. The national government is not tying them together. Earlier this week, Fauci argued for a more "unified approach.
The interaction with Gilmore also came after the Chiefs' practice squad quarterback, Jordan Ta'amu, tested positive last week. Mahomes said he stayed 6 feet apart from Ta'amu, but it was a concern with Matthews pregnant with their first child.
Mahomeslast month, and the couple announced a few weeks later that by posting a photo of them holding a sonogram picture.
"It's something that I think about every day," he said. "You have to think about that with her being pregnant and kind of at a high-risk category so I just try to do my best, especially after finding out Jordan was positive obviously.
"When I went home over the weekend, I slept in a different bedroom and stayed away from her as much as possible, and so I've gotten these negative tests back, and so I just try to do my part to kind of keep myself away from her and social distance whenever stuff like this arises," he said.

This "Innocent" Activity Can Get You COVID, Warns Dr. Fauci
"What we're seeing throughout the country is that innocent get-togethers of family and friends" leads to infection, says Dr. Fauci.Fauci detailed a typical scenario: "Eight, 10 people get together at a dinner with friends and family. One of them is infected, but with no symptoms, They put their guard down. You're sitting, you're eating, you're drinking, you take your mask off. And that's how we're starting to see infections.
Research released in June by thecomparing pregnant and non- found that infected pregnant women do not have a greater risk of death but may be more likely to be hospitalized.
"These findings suggest that among women of reproductive age with COVID-19, pregnant women are more likely to be hospitalized and at increased risk for ICU admission and receipt of mechanical ventilation compared with non-pregnant women, but their risk for death is similar," the report stated.
Gilmore, who is the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, wrote in a statement onWednesday that he is currently asymptomatic. He added that he followed every protocol and still tested positive so people need to "be sure to take this seriously."
Mahomes said he hopes to make the interaction with Gilmore "an isolated incident."
"It's a different time," he said. "I think that's the biggest thing. You knew that coming into this season if you thought you were gonna go through the entire season and no one was gonna test positive and you had a little bit of false hope, and so you just trust that protocols in place are the right protocols.
"Like I said obviously with Brittany being pregnant I try to do whatever I can to social distance and stay away to be available to the team, but even more part for me just kind of stay and keep my family safe."
