Re-Opening The Cape


Memorial Day is right around the corner, the unofficial start to summer. We talk with members of the Cape Re-Opening Task Force about preparing for the safe opening of beaches, restaurants and retail business. How can we minimize the risk of spreading the virus while still supporting the local economy? And with an increase population, can our health care system handle a potential uptick in corona virus cases?

Guests on the program are as follows:

Julian Cyr, State Senator for the Cape and Islands 

Michael Lauf, President and CEO of Cape Cod Healthcare

Wendy Northcross, CEO of the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce

Sean O’Brien, Barnstable County Emergency Preparedness Coordinator
