Gyms, Movie Theaters Weigh The Risks And Rewards Of ReopeningPlay
Here's the Radio Boston rundown for July 7. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- Got any plans to go back to the gym, or maybe a movie theater or museum? All three can now open in Massachusetts. So what's the trade-off in risk and reward? We check in with several local businesses navigating reopening.
- We hear from Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu, who in a recent op-ed criticized Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's move to create the Boston Racial Equity Fund, calling it "a squandering of municipal power that will compete with a community-led effort created by Black and brown business leaders."
- Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, has further complicated college's reopening plans. They announced on Monday that if you're a foreign student and your university is offering online only classes this fall, you have to leave the U.S. We talk about the implications with WBUR's Shannon Dooling.
