SOUTHEASTERN NC—This week Covid-19 cases continue to rise statewide, with 80% of North Carolina counties now in the red or orange zones. As such, Gov. Cooper put into effect another stay-at-home order, requiring folks are home 10 p.m. – 5 a.m. daily, and non-essential businesses and onsite alcohol consumption sales stop by 9 p.m. at least through Jan. 8.

It brings us to our number-one read story of the week at Port City Daily, “New Hanover County Covid-19 update, governor releases letter to North Carolinians [Free].”

The opening of the second location of Indochine also tops the list: “As Indochine Express opens, Solange Thompson reflects on 20 years running ILM’s most prized restaurant.” It’s followed by “Deep Dive: Inside the three-year, unique, $47 million private-public Bald Head Island ferry transaction.”
