According to the CDC, North Carolina is currently ranked seventh in the country when it comes to the number of COVID-19 cases in the last week.
In addition, different jurisdictions, like Chicago, have recently added North Carolina to their travel advisory list.
"Every country, state and city varies in trends and metrics. Some also rate other states or countries, and the methodologies, requirements and thresholds and definitions all vary," a North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services spokesperson said.
