Here's the Radio Boston rundown for May 4. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Three ICE detainees are seeking medical treatment following a violent incident at the Bristol County House of Correction Friday after they reported symptoms of COVID-19 and then resisted transfer for testing. Both the Bristol County Sheriff's office and the detainees have conflicting versions of how the clash began, and why. We'll hear from both sides and WBUR's Shannon Dooling.
  • Monday marks the original deadline for starting to re-open Massachusetts. But as the COVID-19 situation has evolved and the spread has continued, that date has been pushed back. At this point, it's not clear when Massachusetts will re-open for business and life. How do you handle not knowing? We take listener calls.

This program aired on May 4, 2020. The audio for this program is not available.
