WILMINGTON—And here we are: a mere five days away from the big dance. With all the talk of refraining from holiday travels, avoiding family this Christmas to prevent the spread of Covid-19, getting Covid tests if traveling, and of course vaccines now being distributed, there’s a chance you missed a few headlines this week.

No worries, we have you covered.

The number one read story of the week also centers on Covid: “116 Covid-19 cases reported in New Hanover, Brunswick, Pender public schools [Free].” Following is a film industry update, “Eight film projects expected to make $114-million impact in North Carolina in 2021, exceeding past years” and “Wilmington pharmacy fined $1 million for egregiously dispensing opioids, ignoring red flags.”
