The passenger who boarded a JetBlue flight after learning that he tested positive for coronavirus is now banned by the airline.

In a statement to PEOPLE, a spokesperson for JetBlue said the unnamed traveler — who made the journey from New York City to West Palm Beach, Florida, on Thursday night while infected with COVID-19 — will no longer be allowed on their flights due to the “unsettling situation.”

“Last night’s event put our crewmembers, customers, and federal and local officials in an unsettling situation that could have easily been avoided, and as such, this customer will not be permitted to fly on JetBlue in the future,” read the statement.

The airline strongly advised passengers not to fly if they are feeling under the weather, or if they are waiting to get coronavirus test results.
