Buffalo Bills owner Terry Pegula was in attendance at the NFL owners meetings on Tuesday which are taking place in New York City until he was forced to leave.
The reasoning for that is because of a close contract COVID situation unfolding for him.
According to The Athletic, Pegula had to depart because he was in close contract with his daughter’s tennis coach who attended her wedding this past weekend. The coach tested positive for COVID-19:

Worth noting: It is understood that Pegula has not tested positive for COVD-19 himself. This is just a safety precaution.
Bills co-owner Kim Pegula, Terry’s wife, is not representing the team at the meetings, which are taking place Tuesday to Thursday. She is not there according to the Buffalo News.
Per Kim Pegula’s social media account on Twitter, the wedding took place in Ashville, NC.
The Bills, in some form, will potentially now attend the meeting virtually.
