4:06 pm
did tell me it should not be this difficult to ask people to show their vaccination status. outdoor dining and drive-through lines, that is what every in-n-out in the county is doing as the conflict over the vaccine mandate continues. >> i believe is no good. i believe in liberty and freedom, that government has no right to tell me anything. reporter: robert came to the in-n-out in pleasant hill. many others share his opinion. >> this is overage of power, there is not that big of a disaster for these guys to do what they are doing. >> is not our business to check their vaccination requirement. reporter: in-n-out had to temporarily closes pleasant hill location. employees were not checking vaccine status for those eating inside. currently anyone eating at a restaurant indoors in the county must be vaccinated. >> i want every business to follow the rules. reporter: that county supervisor for pleasant hill says in-n-out should not be held to a

different standard. if the health department requires vaccination proof for eating indoors, she says everyplace needs to abide. >> i know it is one more thing that they normally would not do, but they are doing the right thing and they are keeping not only their customers healthy, but making sure that their servers and employees are healthy. reporter: in-n-out said, we refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. it is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not. on wednesday, governor newsom decided not to take a side on the issue, he said people should focus on their health but also acknowledged in-n-out's long history of the state. >> i encourage everybody to take seriously local health orders and i encourage everybody to support businesses that support estate. i appreciate that they are a california-based company. reporter: i did reach out to

4:13 pm
meeting, the county board of supervisors joined the city of oakland in supporting the plan and major league baseball commissioner told abc 7's casey pratt, the vote is a positive step. the a's will continue to pursue the project as well as the las vegas alternative. that is won one t one t las vegas. they expect to complete their environmental impact report by the end of the year and early 2022, open officials can then negotiate an agreement to get to the binding votes. right now, everything is nonbinding. joining me to discuss this is p hil. we heard a lot of reluctance from the board of supervisors who seem between consumed -- confused, concerned, and uninformed. what is the biggest concern going forward? >> this is just a first asked by
4:14 pm
the city. we are talking about one of the biggest development deals on the west coast and what we are seeing is it is going to take $375 million of infrastructure work around that port and at the site in order for this thing to get off the ground. where is that coming from? some is good to come from the state, some from the fed's but there is delay gap. while the board of supervisors said yes to creating a tax district and donating their portion to this project, what they are afraid of is the city is going to come back to them again and say, we need some help, we still need another one. they don't want to be let down the path of another raider deal. larry: there are three clocks ticking. major league baseball, they are pushing, they want a yes. everybody is waiting on the environmental impact report. that giant clock that is looming over all of this is the expiring term of the open mayor. >> and that cannot be
4:15 pm
underrated. she is the biggest cheerleader, the biggest supporter, the person who is putting this together. she is in the final year of her term. not only that and the question about the future going after her, but this could also, if you look at the timing and they were trying to avoid this, but they can't help it now thanks to covid, this is going to be right in the middle of a mayoral election. the people to succeed libby schaff are going to have to say where they face on this -- where they stand on this. larry: want to get a shovel in the ground as soon as possible to avoid getting dragged into the mayoral race. the a's are going to continue with the parallel path approach that the commissioner referenced in the are going to announce their final vegas sites for whatever that is worth, but at this point, that looks more like a leverage play just to keep the heat on opened and make sure they get this thing funded.
4:16 pm
phil: that is the idea. but you have to have leverage. so far, we have not heard las vegas officials say, here is some big tax money to help you out. what we are seeing is for a possible side, look at the market. i'm not sure that a's are going to have the leverage to put the heat on as much as they might have thought they would. that is going to leave it up to oakland in the region to decide. it is an interesting dynamic politically. it all comes down to this. nobody is really better to say yes to any deal, but nobody wants to be the person or the group that says no and causes days the third sports franchise in the east bay to leave. larry: i want to circle back to a point you made earlier. we heard numerous times yesterday people referencing the raiders deal. that was 25 years ago and it is
4:17 pm
still basically the third rail of oakland politics, you don't want to touch that because that is the end of your political career if it goes bad. phil: and a simple reason for that. after 25 years, the taxpayers of alameda county and oakland are still paying it off. larry: that is all that needs to be said. nobody wants to be left holding the bag. thank you for the time. kristen: the bay area making its case to host. 2026 world cup. this weekend, officials will tour the by stadium to determine whether the region is a viable option. 16 cities across the u.s., mexico, and canada will host world cup events, 22 cities across the three countries being considered as host cities. a decision is expected by early next year. let's check things out with spencer, the weather is conducive to soccer or any other outdoor sports. spencer: if only this could hold

4:27 pm
returning to t
4:28 pm
4:29 pm
>> building a better bay area, moving forward, finding solutions. this is abc 7 news. larry: a new report shows san francisco is struggling to bounce back after the pandemic, falling behind other major cities to get employees back into the office. a look at some other reasons for this. reporter: is no secret san francisco is a remote friendly work city so experts say that is part of it. along with the fact, prior to the pandemic, the city was coming off a tender building boom. let me construction leaving more empty space to lease out. getting employees back to the
4:30 pm
office means a big part of san francisco's economy will bounce back. the prominent national problem is we are far from where we need to be. a new report that measures incoming demand for office space across the country shows 10 francisco reported around a 17% drop in the past month, a slightly bigger depth than new york and seattle. >> it is going to take some time. we are not back to where we were pre-pandemic. reporter: robert is a senior researcher for a commercial real estate firm. he says san francisco's slow recovery is partially due to the city's remote friendly work culture. >> we were at the bottom. the bay area, tech companies in general, they were not in the office. whereas other markets in texas and on the east coast in the south, they were starting to go back into the office environment. reporter: another reason can be attributable city's building boom that hit mitch of -- much
4:31 pm
of the financial district. >> before kobe, a building boom in san francisco, millions of square feet of office space was created. reporter: case in point, the ml allocation that put a cap on the amount of square footage per year the city regulated in growth. >> the last eight of 10 years, that allocation was triggered, meaning we exceeded that 950,000 square-foot growth per year. i think that has to do with why we are a little different in the recovery of office space. reporter: even with the extra empty space, our slow recovery is not projected to stay for long. new leasing activity in san francisco suggests the financial district will start to bounce back by january. >> we are tracking 4.5 million square feet, that is tenants touring for new office space. reporter: he says these are companies assigning deals, waiting to occupy the space next year. >> after the holidays, we will see more activity. reporter: a promising sign our
4:32 pm
slow recovery will start to speed up. most of the companies that have employees back in the office currently are in the business services industry with most tech companies set to return next year. larry: going to be interesting to see, especially for the new companies. what are they paying in rent compared to what the event used to be? how does the demand for office space compared to a normal year? reporter: that report we mentioned, the office demand index report, shows san francisco is close to 50% below what is considered normal demand for office space. that is being compared to whatever demand was like in 2018 top 2019. certainly indicates we are far from where we are -- from where we wear, but there is hope to see the turnaround after the holidays. kristen: between us to talk about these trends is the executive director of our bay area council economic institute. thank you for your time.
4:33 pm
you heard our reporter, she mentioned san francisco's remote work friendly culture as one reason why office space is sitting empty. is that the biggest factor, delaying the city's recovery? >> when he talked about many of our largest employers, they had remote work policies even before the pandemic. they knew how to do remote work, they found that remote work has been good for the business and employees. you talk about companies based in texas when new york or other areas, remote work was maybe new to those areas and people were not used to it, you have seen banks bringing people back to the office, but for tech companies and information type companies, remote work was something we were doing previously to a certain extent and now 100% in many companies. kristen: which types of sectors are hurt most by this slow recovery? is not the tech folks working from home. >> talk about the urban centers of san francisco, you talk about
4:34 pm
restaurants, hotels, barbershops, all of those service employees that were dependent on that daytime population in our downtown areas. when you talk about san francisco's recovery, the leisure and hospitality sector is the one that is furthest behind the rest of the nation. kristen: what you think needs to happen for the recovery if you peg that -- if we peg back to office space rentals to pick up speed? >> i think you are 20 c rentals picking up next year. many employers are talking about a january return to office to some capacity but for many, it is three days per week for some employees, some still staying out altogether. i do think san francisco will have a longer abode to recovery, but there are vicinities for other businesses to move in, vacancy rates are at 20%, four times higher than what they had been. this is about bringing new
4:35 pm
businesses and, new opportunities to bring san francisco back. when we go back to work in 2022, many of the people that were there in 2019 not going to be in the city next year. kristen: besides the building boom we had before the pandemic and the fact that we are remote work friendly, are there other factors at play for why san francisco may be bagging -- lacking compared to comparable cities, seattle for example. 6 i think -- jeff: i think seattle has had high job growth and information sectors, those of the office jobs throwing most there. i think san francisco has struggled with costs, whether that is cost of labor, cost of space when businesses are looking to grow, they are looking to other locations. they know they can work in a remote dispersed environment so they are looking at places like seattle, austin, start lake city rather than san francisco. kristen: what would you like to
4:36 pm
see city officials or those in the position of making policy that might spur the economy do what is point? jeff: transit is the one key factor that people are not on caltrans, they are back on the roads causing congestion to be high. when you see the traffic numbers, you are less likely to want to go to work. bringing those services back up to full speed, making them safe is one key aspect. two, a longer-term solution is to provide more incentives, particularly for middle wage work, bringing in new companies, bringing in new employees that can grow the economy. we saw that in the middle market area, we have seen that in soma, we have seen that in many parts of the city in terms of the city providing incentives in the past to bring the economy back. that is one thing we could look for, new incentives to grow business. kristen: thank you so much.
4:37 pm
jeff: thank you. larry: following just a few days ole -- away. what is stopping everybody's candy and cartoon list this an official message from medicare. did you try it yet? comparing plans? oh yeah. they sure can change year to year. i found lower premiums and lower prescription costs. that'll save you money. so uh, mark? on now. open enrollment ends december 7th use the plan finder at to compare medicare health and prescription plans. comparing plans really pays. paid for by the u.s. department of health & human services
