A leader of an anti-covid-19 protest in North Carolina was unable to attend two rallies of the group because she tested positive for the disease, a report said.
Audrey Whitlock was unable to even take part in the protest groupās first two rallies held in Raleigh because she was in quarantine after testing positive for the virus three weeks ago.
āShe never left her house during her quarantine, so she has not been at any rally or any of the functions that weāve done,ā fellow organizer, Ashley Smith, told a local television station.
āIām not responsible for other peopleās choices. Iām for personal liberty,ā Smith explained.
āEveryone has their own decisions to make. If they want to come, thatās up to them. Iām going to be there. Iām not afraid of the virus. Iām more afraid of losing my constitutional rights and losing my livelihood than I am of the virus.ā
Whitlock first revealed her coronavirus diagnosis in a private post to the groupās Facebook page on Sunday.
āAs an asymptomatic COVID19 positive patient (quarantine ends 4/26),ā Whitlock wrote in the message obtained by the Raleigh News and Observer. āAnother concern I have is the treatment of COVID patients as it relates to other communicable diseases. I have been forced to quarantine in my home for 2 weeks,ā she said.
Around 1,000 people rallied in downtown Raleigh last Tuesday arguing the order violated their constitutional rights
