  People in Massachusetts are becoming less worried about being infected by the coronavirus, according to a new poll.

    However, the survey by the Western New England University Polling Institute found there is caution -- even among the vaccinated -- when it comes to activities like dining in a restaurant or going to the movies.

   The poll results released this week also touched on vaccine hesitancy, the reopening of schools, and Gov. Charlie Baker’s handling of the pandemic.
