Everyone who attended the event has been instructed to self-quarantine for fourteen days.

A man was captured on video being removed from a Florida-bound flight at LaGuardia Airport Friday for not wearing a face mask. The tense standoff unfolded when a man, whose name was not known, “took his face covering off and refused to put it back on,” a spokesman for Spirit Airlines said. A video from inside the plane shows part of an exchange between a Port Authority cop and the man, in which the officer asks the passenger to get off the plane and the man argues with him. “I don’t want to force you, I’m asking you,” the cop can be heard saying while asking the man to get off the fight. A spokesman for the airline said the man eventually agreed to “deplane on his own instead of risking legal consequences.” (
