Here is the Radio Boston rundown for February 3. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Dr. Peter Slavin, president of Massachusetts General Hospital, joins us to reflect on what we've learned from dealing with COVID-19 in Massachusetts for over a year, how major hospitals are thinking about the vaccine rollout, and what the state should be focusing on as we move forward.
  • A major Boston institution reopens today, after a second coronavirus pandemic closure: The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The museum has been closed for the last month and a half, as the city's COVID cases surged and the city placed new restrictions on public places. For more on the reopening, and what visitors can expect to see, we turn to the Director of the MFA, Matthew Teitelbaum.
  • We're approaching the one-year mark of when everything shut down due to the pandemic, and our everyday lives changed forever. In that year, we've gone from baking bread and picking up hobbies to stir crazy. We take listener calls and talk about hitting the "pandemic wall."

This program aired on February 3, 2021.
