NC Attorney General Stein tests positive for COVID-19


North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein says he’s staying at home for awhile after testing positive for COVID-19. Stein says he tested positive on Monday and was asymptomatic. In a tweet, the second-term attorney general says he was fully vaccinated, with two boosters, and will be “lying low" and “working from home for a few days." Stein is considered a potential gubernatorial hopeful in 2024. Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper can’t seek reelection due to term limits.
