Spirit Airlines will be temporarily suspending service at airports in the New York metro area starting later this week. This includes to and from airports including LaGuardia, Newark, Hartford, Niagara Falls, and Plattsburg. A Spirit Airlines official tells us they anticipate the suspension through May 4.

Actually in the southern part of NJ, there are not many reported cases.
goto weather.com and search Atlantic city then select the Covid-19 tab, you will see they have 24 confirmed cases in total.
I live in Monmouth county and we have 870 cases. We have many people in our area that commute into NYC for work (finance folks+)

I wouldn't think so, considering a lot of airlines in the USA are dramatically scaling back on domestic and international flights. It's not like these cuts are limited to NK.
Also, keep in mind that several states (including Texas and Florida) have instituted mandatory 14-day quarantine orders for residents who were recently in the New York tri-state area. So, it doesn't make much sense to have a slew of flights out of LGA/JFK/EWR/BDL. (Yes, I know Hartford isn't technically part of the NYC metro area per se, but nearby New Haven is technically considered part of the New York commuter-shed - a major Metro-North commuter rail line to New York originates in New Haven - which is why I added BDL to my comment.)
