News Roundup: COVID numbers soar, severity down; new testing site opens on Cape; more

S Junker
Many schools closed across the region in anticipation of a snowfall expected to bring as much as seven inches to some locations.

This week: Covid case numbers have soared, but with lower severity. Still, it’s got schools and public health officials scrambling, including opening a new testing site on Cape Cod. And: the region’s water quality brings home a lackluster report card.

We have those stories and more, as CAI News Director Steve Junker speaks with some of the region’s leading journalists.

This week's guests include CAI's Jennette Barnes, Sam Houghton, and Eve Zuckoff; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; K.C. Myers of the Provincetown Independent; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; CAI's Patrick Flanary and Mike Deehan with news from the Statehouse; and CAI's Daniel Ackerman.
