  2. Flight to Bahamas canceled after students refuse to wear masks. A flight to the Bahamas leaving from North Carolina was canceled after a group of students refused to wear masks during the trip. American Airlines Flight 893 to Nassau, Bahamas, was set to depart Monday when a group of more than 30 high school students started a mask protest that went on for hours, a local Fox News station reported.
