Film spool unwound when unloading 16mm magazine

I was attempting to remove the core adapter for my magazine out of the exposed spool of film and ended up pushing out the spool core. The inside film unraveled and I managed to wind some of it back onto the original spool. What am I to do in this circumstance— wind the rest of the exposed footage back onto the spool? I did touch some of the emulsion and tried to only handle the plastic side. My fingers were clean. Am I okay to use nitrate gloves to finish rewinding or could I even send it to the lab in its current condition. Any advice is dearly appreciated. I am quite worried if my footage is okay.
