An organizer of anti-racism protests in South Carolina are urging anyone who attended demonstrations in Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville to get tested for COVID-19 after more than a dozen infections were reported.

More than 900 new coronavirus cases were reported statewide on Sunday—the latest spike in a surge that began before the protests started May 30 but after the state relaxed its lockdown measures.
