The Patriots placed Mason (calf) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
According to Andrew Callahan of The Springfield Republican, Mason didn't test positive for the virus, so he apparently came into close contact with someone who has COVID-19.

Mason was sidelined for last week's victory over the Browns and was then absent from practice earlier in the week. However, he was able to log limited workloads on Thursday and Friday.

Mason practiced in a limited fashion all week and continues to nurse his lingering calf issue.

Mason, a regular starter on New England's O-line since the team selected him in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, is locked in to remain in the same role for the foreseeable future. The 6-foot-1, 310-pound Mason has performed admirably as a starter for the Patriots and is rewarded by becoming one of the highest-paid right guards in the league.
Mason (hand) is questionable for the Patriots' Week 2 game against Miami.
Mason was limited in each practice this week due to his hand injury. He was active for Week 1 while dealing with the same injury and it wouldn't be surprising to see the depth lineman activated once again since he won't see extended time unless an injury forces him into a larger role.
Mason (hand) is questionable to play Week 1 against the Cardinals.
Mason managed to get in a limited practice session Friday, but may truly reside on the doubtful side of questionable as he only returned to practice this past Wednesday since suffering a broken hand in August.
