By week's end, kids and teachers mostly will be back in classrooms. While big employers like Liberty Mutual and John Hancock have delayed return to work until January, many offices are welcoming workers back now, too, at least gradually.

And a lot's still up in the air - like how long delta will have a grip on the country, and the status of the Biden Administration's plan for boosters.

We take listener calls with Dr. Cassandra Pierre, acting hospital epidemiologist and an infectious diseases physician at Boston Medical Center, and Dr. Eileen Costello, the chief of ambulatory pediatrics, also at Boston Medical Center.

This segment aired on September 7, 2021.
