If you were hoping to skip the lines at testing locations and self-administer your COVID-19 test at home, you’re going to need to wait.  According to Labcorp’s website, the company will not be taking any COVID-19 home collection kit orders beginning Wednesday and running through Jan. 2, 2022.  The company said that they’re pausing orders “to meet customer expectations during limited holiday shipping delivery windows.” https://myfox8.com/news/north-carolina/labcorp-pausing-shipments-of-free-at-home-covid-19-tests-to-nc-residents/

 

The Westminster Kennel Club’s annual dog show has become the latest event to be postponed or canceled in New York as the number of coronavirus cases surges.  The club’s board of governors announced Wednesday it was postponing its 2022 event, scheduled for late January, to later in the year. A new date wasn’t given. https://myfox8.com/news/coronavirus/westminster-kennel-clubs-annual-dog-show-postponed-over-covid/

 

The tailgate headquarters of college football is raising the stakes in the “Battle of the States!”  The North Carolina Tar Heels and the South Carolina Gamecocks go head to head in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl on Thursday. Whichever team takes the win will bless the entire state with free iced tea from Bojangles.  That’s right! If the Tar Heels defeat the Gamecocks, anyone can go to any Bojangles in North Carolina and ask for a complimentary cup of Legendary Ice Tea on December 31.  Sadly, if the Gamecocks win, you’ll have to cross the border for that free tea. https://myfox8.com/sports/bojangles-offers-free-iced-tea-to-whichever-state-is-victorious-in-unc-usc-matchup/
