To require masks or not—that is the question for towns and transportation providers across the region (Provincetown says, ‘Yes!’); Martha’s Vineyard isn’t sure what it wants to tell seasonal residents; and an upside to all this? How about a comeback for drive-in theaters.

Those stories and more on today's program, as WCAI News Director Steve Junker discusses local news with some of the region’s leading journalists.

This week's guests include WCAI’s Sam Houghton and Eve Zuckoff; Brian Dowd of the Martha's Vineyard Times; Tim Wood from the Cape Cod Chronicle; Ed Miller of the Provincetown Independent; Geoff Spillane from the Cape Cod Times; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; Jack Spillane of the Standard-Times; Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette; and WCAI's Mike Deehan at the Statehouse.
