Here's the Radio Boston rundown for May 11. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Boston Mayor Marty Walsh takes listener calls after announcing last week that large summer events, including the city's July Fourth celebration, will be canceled due to the pandemic. Plus, what will that mean for re-opening?

  • We speak with Easthampton Mayor Nicole LaChapelle, who serves on Governor Baker's Reopening Advisory Board. The group is coming up with strategies to reopen the Massachusetts economy in phases.

  • We get an update on what you need to know as our neighboring states begin reopening and Gov. Baker makes testing, masks, and social distancing part of the "new normal" with Dr. Shira Doron of Tufts Medical Center and Lenny Marcus of Harvard University.

This program aired on May 11, 2020.
