Staff at Trina’s Starlite Lounge in Somerville put meals out on a table for patrons to pick up at the front door. All the food prepared was made with food the restaurant would have discarded due to the the state's order beginning March 17, preventing people from gathering at bars and restaurants, a move to reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus. All the proceeds of the sales will go to their staff. (Jesse Costa/WBUR)

Here's the Radio Boston rundown for May 5. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • While Massachusetts has no plan yet to re-open the economy, New Hampshire is moving forward with plans to loosen restrictions. We get the details on the plan, how it will impact other states, and what reactions have been from businesses.
  • What's it like to be pregnant during a pandemic? We don't know much yet about how the virus affects people who are pregnant and their babies, which can induce a number of concerns and anxieties. We'll hear from one expectant mother and a maternal-fetal medical expert.
  • Restaurants have been forced to adapt to survive, but they've still taken a massive economic hit. We check in with two restaurant owners on how delivery and take-out only are going, and what they anticipate re-opening may look like in Massachusetts.

This program aired on May 5, 2020.
