What’s the pandemic going to mean for heading to the beach this summer? That’s a big question for towns across the region. Meanwhile, small businesses seeking to reopen are counting the obstacles. And Martha's Vineyard has a plan to dramatically expand coronavirus testing.

We have those stories and more on the local news roundup, as WCAI News Director Steve Junker speaks with some of the region’s leading journalists.

This week's guests include WCAI’s Sam Houghton and Jennette Barnes; Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette; Tim Wood from the Cape Cod Chronicle; K.C. Myers of the Provincetown Independent; Cindy McCormick from the Cape Cod Times; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; Jack Spillane of the Standard-Times; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; and WCAI's Mike Deehan at the Statehouse.
