This is the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 12. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- Boston Public School students are set to return to in-person learning in phases beginning Feb. 1. This comes after months of negotiation. So what's the plan for students? We ask Boston Public Schools Superintendent Brenda Cassellius.
- Here's where we stand right now on the coronavirus pandemic in Massachusetts: A seven-day average positive test rate above 7%, with just 4% of hospital beds are free in Boston. Some 140,000 people have gotten their first vaccine dose, and 1,200 have already gotten the second, as the state's slow rollout continues. We take listener questions with two doctors about how the state is responding to the pandemic.
- The New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has decided not to accept the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Trump on Thursday. That's just one of many recent decisions by Boston teams with serious reverberations inside and outside of sports. We "Check The Score" with Radio Boston's Chris Citorik.
