Here is the Radio Boston rundown for Nov. 18. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- We talk with U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling, who says the Massachusetts Department of Correction has been violating the constitutional rights of inmates with mental illness. That report is the result of a two-year investigation into mental health care for prisoners at several Massachusetts correctional facilities.
- Worcester will once again see its DCU Center turned into a field hospital to help deal with surging coronavirus cases and hospitalizations. We check in on how the city is handling the second wave of the pandemic and its prospects for a return to economic growth with Worcester City Manager Edward Augustus, Jr.
- Thanksgiving is going to have to look different this year. Governor Baker today is asking people to gather just with our immediate households, which means a lot of people are canceling plans, staying home. We take calls on how our listeners' plans have turned out: What sacrifices will you be making this Thanksgiving? What traditions will you miss, and what will you be happy to skip this year?
