Houserafts moored for the winter in Wood's Hole's Eel Pond appear to float mid-air on a foggy evening.

This week: In our latest surge of Covid cases, access to testing continues to be an issue. Schools, meanwhile, are struggling to get through it, as absences pile up. And: why is the question of ropeless fishing dividing lobstermen?

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; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Louisa Hufstader of the Vineyard Gazette; Mary Ann Bragg of the Provincetown Banner; Jason Graziadei of Nantucket Current; CAI Statehouse reporter Mike Deehan; and Anastasia Lennon of the New Bedford Light.
