Here is the Radio Boston rundown for Oct. 7. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Boston is delaying plans to reopen the city’s schools after the city’s coronavirus positivity rate climbed higher than 4%, Mayor Marty Walsh announced Wednesday. We get the latest from WBUR's Carrie Jung.
  • We catch up with Massachusetts Congressman Richard Neal on the status of pandemic stimulus negotiations. Neal represents Massachusetts' First District and is Chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee.
  • For the Massachusetts restaurants that survived the pandemic so far and have reopened, they face a challenge: how to stay in business, keep staff and patrons safe, when winter hits? We take listener calls with two local restaurant owners.

This program aired on October 7, 2020.
