WCAI News Director Steve Junker hosts a roundup of some of the week's top local and regional news, including: Cape hospitals and nursing homes restrict visitors as a precaution against the new coronavirus, even as questions arise about testing locally and in the state; we round up preparations and cancellations around the region; and the Cape Cod Commission gives a favorable report on the plan to restore the Herring River.

This week's guests are: Ethan Genter of the Cape Cod Times; Bill Eville of the Vineyard Gazette; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Alex Darus of the Provincetown Banner; Jack Spillane of the Standard-Times; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; Brian Dowd of the Martha's Vineyard Times; and WCAI's Mike Deehan and Eve Zuckoff.

Steve is Managing Editor of News. He came to WCAI in 2007. He also hosts the weekly News Roundup on Friday mornings, and produces The Fishing News and Weekend Outlook.
