COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Southeastern Massachusetts, raising more questions about how long the pandemic will be with us.

Cheryl Bartlett, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater New Bedford Community Health Center attempts to provide answers on this week's edition of Townsquare Sunday.

Bartlett, a former Mass. Commissioner of Public Health, also has some thoughts on Governor Charlie Baker's latest "orders" on slowing the spread of the coronavirus, including limiting indoor gatherings to 10 people, and the 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew.

The Townsquare Sunday interview with Cheryl Bartlett can be heard here:
