Boston Mayor Marty Walsh Reacts To Baker's Phased Reopening Plan

Download Audio

Gov. Baker announced today that Massachusetts' phased reopening could begin as early as next week.

Yet, as of yesterday, the City of Boston has had more than 11,000 cases of COVID-19.  More than 500 have died and nearly 8,000 are still sick.

So reopening in Boston will inevitably be slow – just take it from Mayor Marty Walsh, who announced Friday that no parades or festivals will take place in the city this summer. He joins us for our regular check-in to talk about how Boston will approach the first phase of reopening.

This segment aired on May 11, 2020.
