Audrey Whitlock, an organizer of a North Carolina group calling on the state to ease its coronavirus restrictions, was unable to attend two rallies because she tested positive for the disease.
The admin of the Facebook page of ReOpen NC, was under quarantine for two weeks ending Sunday after testing positive for coronavirus, according to news station WFAE.
