This is the Radio Boston rundown for Dec. 7. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • With the coronavirus spreading throughout the state, we check in with Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera and Boston's Chief of Health and Human Services, Marty Martinez.
  • Dr. Rochelle Walensky will be the next head of the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention. She is the chief of infectious diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and a professor at Harvard Medical School, and has been a regular guest on Radio Boston this past year taking listener questions on the pandemic. We speak with Dr. George Daley, the dean of Harvard Medical School, about Walensky and the CDC.
  • First it was toilet paper, then hand sanitizer and paper towels. iIn this surge, it seems the rush is on...Christmas trees? We speak with Dave Morin, the owner of Arrowhead Acres in Uxbridge, and spokesperson for the Massachusetts Christmas Tree Association.

This program aired on December 7, 2020.
