The entire Blues team, coaches and support staff entered self-isolation after Hudson-Odoi was sent home from training last Monday.
Government guidelines suggest anyone who has come into contact should remain at home for a week.
But according to the Daily Mirror, Mount was spotted playing 5-a-side football with West Ham star Rice on Sunday at Trent Park Football centre near Barnet on Sunday.
A fan told the Daily Mirror: "I took my 14-year-old son there for a training session.
"We noticed a car that looked a bit ridiculous and wondered who was in it.
"Then another came along with three or four people inside. My son recognised Mason Mount as the driver.
"They played a kickabout of five or six-a-side. Declan Rice was playing too."
The report added that a Chelsea spokesman has reminded Mount of his responsibilities.
Hudson-Odoi, 19, has revealed he has recovered from the deadly virus sweeping across the globe.
He stated on Instagram: "As you may be aware, I had the virus for the last couple of days, which I've recovered from.
"I followed the health guidelines and self-isolated myself from everybody for the week.
"Hope to see everybody soon and hopefully be back on the pitch very soon. Take care."
