A report and video from TMZ shows thousands of people partying, in close proximity, and without masks during a party hosted by Devin White. An original report by TMZ stated that White would host his annual charity event, with party-goers following Covid-19 guidelines.

White’s second annual “Trail Ride” event, hosted in Cotten Valley Louisiana, was given the green light by mayor C.C. Cox.
“That’s what he wants to do, he can do it, you know?”
Cox even stated that a police presence would be provided, but only to manage the flow of traffic.
Although a spokesperson in White’s camp stated that social distancing and the use of a mask would take place, it is clear those guidelines were not taken seriously. White has yet to comment on the report.
Training camp seemingly opens in less than two weeks. Bruce Arians has set strict Covid guidelines for his coaches and staff, saying the following
“I brought the staff in for that reason, to make sure they all bought into the protocols, that we all walked the right way in the hallways and had our masks on,” Arians said. “I jumped on a bunch of their asses because the players aren’t going to do it if we don’t do it.”
It appears that message has not reached everyone in the organization.
