pathway to termination, all in all, 99 could be fired for not receiving the vaccination. that breaks down to 5% to the 2,100 member force. we're hearing from the police union for which they've responded to members being placed on leave with a statement reading, unfortunately the city's rush to terminate officers will make our city less safe. the city has botch and bungled this process from the beginning, first approving exemption requests and dhee manneding a do-over to reject every religious exemption request. you simply can't make this incompetence up. fewer officers will make things worse. this coming from the police union that represents the member members of the san francisco police department. the mayor tweeted, in july we
issued a requirement for city workers to get vaccinated in order to protect themselves, their co-workers, and the public. i'm proud to report 96% of our nearly 35,000 city workers are vaccinated ant i want to thank them for doing their part. the mayor explained those not vaccinated by november 1st will be suspended without pay. after that, there will be a process hearing at which point they could be separated from the city. that's really less than two weeks away. so in less than two weeks you should have a clear picture of how many employees are no longer employed by the city because of this vaccine requirement. a lot to keep track of. we will, of course, continue to do that for you. live in san francisco, cierra johnson, "today in the bay." >> thanks so much. leaders are seeking to follow san francisco and marin's
footsteps. the exemption would apply to fully vaccinated groups up to 100 people. that would include offices, gyms, fitness centers, employee commuter vehicles, religious gatherings, college classes and others that meet regularlily. similar rules go into effect for costa county november 1st. the white house is saying it will call on schools and community centers to provide the vaccine in a smaller dose than the one taken by adults. those shot will be prepackaged and easy to distribute vials so supplies can be easy to be met. right now the fda and cdc are reviewing the plan, which may go live in a matter of weeks. the u.s. surgeon general telling the "today" show this morning the parents need to be fully informed about that decision. >> we want to make sure that parents have answers to their questions, that they have accurate scientific information that they can use to make their
decision. we know there's a lot of misinformation out there. we've been working well really hard with doctors and nurses and teachers and other organizations to make sure people can get answers to their questions from sources they trust. >> i know this is a big concern for a lot of parents. you can watch that full interview coming up at 7:00. that's right after "today in the bay." with changes seemingly by the hour on the vaccine and mask mandates, we're constantly updating things on our website. you can head over any time to nbcbayarea.com/coronavirus. there you'll get the latest developments. a theranos project manager returns to the stand in the elizabeth holmes criminal fraud trial. daniel edlin testified yesterday about the company's faulty blood. ing and how things were conveyed to leaders. he talked about presentations sent to potential investors including rue put murdock. his attorney tried to show he

bay area. satellite/radar showing some of that rain starting to push out. we've also got some sierra snow. we've got another system on the way. we've got our doppler radar up and scanning the storm ranger. we're going to keep a chance of spotty showers in through the afternoon. daytime highs, 67 for san jose. 62 in san francisco. 58 in half moon bay. but keep that umbrella handy, especially if you're going to take public transportation for the afternoon. our next rain chance moves in late tomorrow night and the big one hopefully -- i want to say hopefully because we certainly are in need of that rain is going to move in on saturday night. let's see how the roads are doing with mike. >> all right. we're looking ott at wet roadways. vianey is talking about the rain coming through the south bay. look at this. 87. slows from capitol expressway up to downtown. it's not yet back. but this is a start as we expect for the silicon valley commute
kicking in really hard over the 7:00 hour. over here, 84. tri-valley looks really good. slowing for 880 off the caster valley y. a typical pattern. this is atypical, the amount of slowing out of orinda. the speed sensors are studying. steadying. they may have made improvement and slowing your usual suspects throughout the east bay. back to you. >> thanks, mike. 6:42 right now. coming up next, the demands made by netflix employees as they prepare to walk off the job. plus -- this mom is accused of giving kids alcohol. she's waking up in jail this morning and she'll be before a judge. we'll talk about that coming up. and a new opportunity for people struggling to make it in the bay. we're going to tell you about
