The public charter school, like a nearby Catholic school, closed after a teacher who attended the same Italy trip awaited test results for the new coronavirus. Many parents are now deciding how to talk to their children about the virus. Some said they are checking in daily, while others worry talking about it could make their kids more anxious or fearful.

Here's the Radio Boston rundown for June 15. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We hear from WBUR reporters Carrie Jung and Fred Thys on what we know so far about plans to reopen childcare centers, schools, and universities.
  • Some members of the state's Asian American Commission are pushing back on a statement the organization issued in support of Black Lives Matter. We unpack the nuances of the disagreement.
  • We take listener questions about coronavirus, reopening, and how to stay safe with two local doctors: Dr. Rochelle Walensky with Harvard Medical School and Dr. Helen Boucher with Tufts Medical Center.

This program aired on June 16, 2020.
