ICYMI: State’s revised vaccine plan, Harris Teeter comes to River Road, Covid-19 numbers and more [Free]

WILMINGTON—Welcome to a new year, dear readers. 2021 officially has arrived!

Collectively, the world has never been so ready to say sayonara to a year as troublesome as 2020. The pandemic has rocked every continent and become the top headline in news everywhere (including many of Port City Daily’s most read stories of 2020).

Our community continues to respond to the pandemic as numbers surge, and the vaccine is administered—which brings us to our top read story of the week, Dec. 28-Jan. 2: “North Carolina just revised its vaccine priorities. Where is your spot on the list? [Free].”

Gov. Roy Cooper and North Carolina Health and Human Services secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen announced last week a finessed revision of the vaccine plan and where groups of people fall in line to receive it.

Following behind was the story on a major North Carolina grocery store coming to River Road, “Largest Harris Teeter in the Southeast underway in fast-growing area of Wilmington.” Coming in third was last week’s check-in on rising Covid-19 numbers in the tri-county region, “Checking in with Covid-19: New Hanover joins Brunswick in orange zone, Pender alarmingly red [Free].”
