Peter Levine, 51, told the New York Post that he tried to get his 21-year-old son Matt to return from Spring Break early amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

"I spoke with him every day and told him that maybe they should come home. I was aggravated. The news here was getting worse and worse," the elder Levine said, adding, that Matt sent "pictures of him and his friends congregating outdoors and listening to live music."

Before the end of Matt's vacation, Peter finally told him that when he was to get back to New York, that he couldn't stay in the family's home in Nanuet - citing that the college student's grandparents lived there and that he couldn't take the risk of exposing them to COVID-19.

Peter even refused to pick up Matt and his friends from the airport.

After getting a ride from the airport back to his home, Matt's dad met him at the door and let him know that his car was already packed with clothes, groceries, and $300 in cash to help get him through his quarantine period.

As for now, Matt is stuck with his college roommates in an off-campus house a few months longer.

“Their lease ends in June and none of the parents want them home,” said Peter. “It’s too risky.”
