6:02 am
vaccinated. >> good morning, cierra johnson. she's live looking deeper into both stories. >> reporter: let's talk about yolo county, and that's the county where the health officer asked folks vaccinated or not to continue to wear masks indoors in public places. they say it's because of the increase in cases and delta variant. yolo county is part of the greater sacramento area. in a press release, the yolo county health officer said the delta variant made up 76% of the positive samples collected from the end of june through the beginning of july. as a result that health officer strongly recommended fully vaccinated people along with those 65 and older or those immuno compromised wear a mask in those areas as a precautionary measure. so far we have not learned of any bay area counties issuing these type of recommendations.
6:03 am
taking a quick look at the covid cases in the bay area, that 7-day average per 100,000 people, as you can see there, it has increased in contra costa, alameda, san francisco and santa clara county. north of san francisco, up there in sonoma county, there is a breakout at a homeless shelter. nine people had to be hospitalized because of the covid virus. of that nine, six were vaccinated. officials are not sure if it delta variant related, but they are trying to pinpoint what is going on in that homeless shelter, and they are asking people wear mask indoors even if you are vaccinated. >> thank you. this morning, the race to vaccinate americans is reaching
6:04 am
a new milestone. more than 160 million people across the country are vaccinated, and that includes more than 20 million californians now fully vaccinated. new this morning, new data shows johnson & johnson's single shot vaccine is strong and stable after eight months. that's according to a study in the new england journal of medicine, and it offers good protection against the new delta variant. the study revealed all three vaccines showed a sharp increase in antibody responses. now trying to get money in the hands of crime victims and survivors for safety and justice, just announced a new $100,000 grant program. it comes as another program aiming to interrupt the cycle of crime is under scrutiny. the pretrial diversion program is seeing more than half of its clients re-offend. one supervisor is calling for reform and once voted against

6:06 am
6:05. looking for an extra $250 in your bank account today and even more. millions of families are getting their first payment from the extended child tax credit, and today in the bay's tracie potts joins us. this is as inflation is starting to hit close to home. >> right, marcus. prices are going up with more money in your wallet. the other parts of the president's agenda you talked about still stalled. this money is not. it's already a done deal and approved as part of covid relief, the american rescue plan months ago. $3,000 minimum, and for working families that qualify for those funds broken up into monthly payments that start today.
6:07 am
from the white house, president biden says today this credit is helping 39 million families get out of poverty and improve their financial situation and take care of their families. so while this is a done deal, the rest of the family plan, as i noted, is not. child care, health care, climate change, now embedded in the democrat's $3.5 trillion plan, and they will try to push it through with no republican votes. >> it's a shocking figure and it's something republicans, i think, will uniformly oppose. >> what we are seeing is the outlines with the radical democrat freight train to socialism, and everybody in america will end up paying for it. >> even some democrats are concerned about the price tag. remember, they are still working on the more traditional infrastructure plan, roads,
6:08 am
bridges, transit, broadband for everybody. lawmakers still tweaking the pay for on that. meantime the president is hosting german chancellor, angela merkel at the white house today. they are supposed to discuss international security, the pandemic and climate change. >> certainly something a lot of people will be following. i want to go back to the child tax credit. as i understand, a lot of the families that qualify may not get that money today. why is that? >> right. because everyone wasn't in the government's database. the irs did not have anybody's tax information. there was miscommunication of how you apply for the credit. the biden administration acknowledges that and they are working on some of the issues and have a brand-new website
6:09 am
just focused on the child tax credit, and it's the third time they tried this, to get those that qualify the money. bart is bringing back late-night service. for the last three weekends of july, bart will offer limited trains on thursday, friday and saturday night. on august 2nd, train service will return to normal, running until midnight weekdays and saturdays. bart shutdown its train service in march of last year, as we all recall. so many things shutdown. we were all apart. today we're together again. looking outside at san francisco, a little haze and a cool start to our morning. and once again, we're altogether again. it's a great thing when you love your co-workers. when you don't, you are like, okay. >> one thing i did not like was
6:10 am
that commute. as we are starting out the door in oakland this morning, cloudy and in the mid-50s. we will see the temperatures go from 55 degrees, cloudy, misty, drizzly to clearing by lunchtime. we're reaching into the low 60s. here's a look at our high for all microclimates. we will see a wide range in temperatures from upper 50s in half moon bay, and 80 in concord, livermore and highs in the mid-60s in oakland. we will talk more about what is ahead for the weekend. that's coming up in a few minutes. we're watching the roads, mike. no problems. slowing in the peninsula is unaffected by the building commute. south bay, the first slowing in san jose cleared up. a little heavier volume of traffic.
6:11 am
this crash here is near the on-ramp and is over in the center divide, and it's a distraction and it has not added to the drive out of vallejo. we have seen additional slowing in the area through concord and the bay bridge. your travel time for vasco, a little slowing. next on "today in the bay," why you may not want to toss your sun screen in your bag. you have to know about a recall. new playbook for the nba. talk about taking ownership of your tickets. we will talk about some of the league may profit. and then let's go over the futures this morning. let's take a look at what is going to happen probably on the market. looks like a bit of a dip for the dow. and then the project from

6:16 am
the terrible inflation we are seeing is temporary, and live pictures of the senate chambers where powell will testify a short time from now. more questions on inflation and unemployment, no doubt. the number of people applying for unemployment continues to fall. the number of people who were already collecting and continue to collect slightly over 3 million. critics of increased unemployment benefits say extra money is keeping people out of work. look at the data. they may be right. the number of people taking unemployment fell 12% in states that ended the extra benefits early compared to 7% in states where they didn't. the consumer product safety commission sued amazon over recalls. amazon said it's not effective on letting some know on the site
6:17 am

6:20 am
you can see the fog, and we are seeing that stretching inland as we see some breaks in the clouds. let's head to the south bay with a look at our high temperatures this afternoon. very much like yesterday. we had the nice breezy winds picking up, temperatures reaching in the mid to upper 70s, and we are still seeing a range in temperatures from the upper 60s in hayward, and upper 70s in danville and brentwood heading up to 86 degrees. near the coast, we're still in the 50s today. not a lot of sunshine. we are seeing the sun in palo alto where highs reach the low 70s. san francisco in low 50s and 60s. reaching 77 in novato, while clear lake will see the temperatures in the low 90s. this shows our near surface smoke, and where you see blue we have smoke drifting by. looks like we will start out the day with smoke and then clear out. tomorrow looks clearer as a lot of the smoke gets pushed off
6:21 am
towards the east. we are still monitoring that and our air quality as we see things change. it will start to warm up into the end of the weekend. sunday and monday reaching into the low 90s, and we will still have warm weather for tuesday as well. san francisco reaching into the mid and upper 60s. clouds and fog each day. no changes here. we're going to keep that mist and drizzle in our natural air-conditioning for the bay area. now as we turn to our climate in crisis, we are feeling cooler weather, but in june it was one of the hottest on record. according to noaa, as the earth continues to warm we will see heat that will continue to become more frequent and intense as climate changes drives warmer temperatures over all. several states saw their hottest june, and there were some spots

6:26 am
student needs to have their own school supplies. here's why. >> they are not able to do group work like they used to. they can't depend on sharing pencils and pens like they have in the past because of covid restrictions. it's more difficult to come back. >> you can ease the burden on families by donating a pack back now during a supporting our schools campaign. in person we have a drop off station tomorrow in mountain view, and i will be on hand. we will be there from 11:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. meet us between the jamba juice and pizza my heart on el monte avenue. if you are unable to pay us a visit in mountain view, you can contribute online and build a backpack virtually. it only takes a few minutes. hope to see you in mountain view tomorrow. >> thanks, chris. the nba is jumping into the nft game, nft are ownable
