RECALL: King Arthur Flour, in association with ADM Milling Company, announced a voluntary national recall of specific lots of its Unbleached All-Purpose Flour in 5-pound and 25-pound bags because of the potential presence of E.coli. The recall is an expansion of another that was announced in June.
Walgreens and Novant Health have formed a ‘clinic partnership’.
Walgreens will acquire nine of Novant’s retail pharmacies, while Novant will open retail health care clinics at Walgreens stores in Winston-Salem and Charlotte
The location on South Stratford Road in Winston-Salem will be one of the first three Walgreens to feature the Novant clinic.
The Novant clinics will operate seven days a week. They will be staffed by Novant advanced practice clinicians, such as physician assistants and nurse practitioners. No appointments are required.
Organizers with the Dixie Classic Fair are taking extra precautions to try to prevent another Legionnaires’ disease outbreak in North Carolina.
The fair, slated to bring thousands to the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds this weekend, is banning the use of mist fans and fairgoers are not allowed to bring their own handheld mist fans.
