Top 10 read news stories at PCD in January 2021

SOUTHEASTERN NC — The first month of 2021 is down — 11 more to go!

A lot of news happened this month, especially in this messy world of Covid-19 and the vaccine rollout across the nation in full swing. Port City Daily covered its effects in our corner of southeastern N.C., from the school board’s delay in sending kids back in Plan A, to the governor’s extension of the modified stay-at-home order and opening to-go alcohol sales to bars, to vaccine supply delays and appointment openings.

We also covered a lot of other news not related to the pandemic that’s just as important — like why the city brings so many car washes and storage units to town, why WPD is running its blue cruise lights at all times, and the many developments taking place across the region, including the largest Harris Teeter in the Southeast.

Our end-of-the-month run down has readers most interested in “Cooper extends Covid-19 stay-at-home order; Brunswick, New Hanover, Pender all now in critical ‘red zone’ [Free]” — which was our top read story of January.

Following closely behind was “North Carolina just revised its vaccine priorities. Where is your spot on the list?” as well as “How Town Creek Elementary became the largest Covid-19 cluster in NC” and “Largest Harris Teeter in the Southeast underway in fast-growing area of Wilmington.”

Let’s take a look at the top 10 read stories at Port City Daily over the last month.
