On this week’s News Roundup, Cape and island communities continue to struggle with a spike in COVID-19 cases, Governor Charlie Baker is among the next cohort of Massachusetts residents who became eligible to book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment this week, and the town of Falmouth considers a proposal for a massive solar farm that would also require cutting down more than a dozen acres of trees.

Host Kathryn Eident discusses these stories and more with: CAI reporters Jennette Barnes, Eve Zuckoff , Sam Houghton and Mike Deehan; George Brennan of the Martha’s Vineyard Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Mary Ann Bragg of the Provincetown Independent; and Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette.
