Here's the Radio Boston rundown for May 6. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We speak with a local superintendent who wrote earnestly in a letter to his school community about the emotions behind the decision to close schools. But one simple message in his writing resonated above all: "It will be okay."
  • After a racist incident last year, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston will commit $500,000 to community engagement and diversity and inclusion initiatives. WBUR's Cristela Guerra tells us more.
  • As Gov. Baker's mandatory face mask order goes into effect, masks have become an integral part of the state's strategy to slow the spread of COVID-19. But, with masks now mandatory in our communities, what's the etiquette?

This program aired on May 6, 2020.
