How have the protests affected the COVID case rate?

Well, let's look at the data, shall we?
I will pick a state for which data is available, say Illinois.
Protests starters there on May 26 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Floyd_protest...
And the number of cases reported (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/illi... peaked two weeks before protests started, and kept going DOWN.
Which seem to imply that protesters are keeping themselves safe.
Meanwhile, if we take a state that opened, say Florida, we notice the cases were pretty much stable (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/flor... until the beaches were all opened June 11, then it started growing.
Unless you have evidence to the contrary to present, it seems the BLM protests changed nothing, but the idiots party goers did.

Democrats claim that rioters and looters do not spread the Chinese Flu.... but going to a Wendy's without a mask does.
