two, bowman and stro bridge. the district has a $14 million budget shortfall for next school year on top of millions in maintenance costs for older buildings while dealing with declining enrollment. teachers, some of them, say the decision was not based on community needs. >> even though i saw it coming, i am very devastated. i have taught at bowman for 27 years. this is my 27th year. i know the families. i know the community. what these students need is a community school, a neighborhood school, a small school where they can walk to, where they feel safe. i think the decision is wrong. >> reporter: you can hear the teacher's commitment in the sound byte there. the good news is that none of the teachers in the two schools will be laid off. we're told they'll be assigned to other schools throughout the district. >> justin, thank you so much.

nearly all bay area counties are in the substantial category. thanksgiving is a little more than a week away. as we are closer to holidays, state is warning of potential surge. this year we have a vaccine but with waning immunity health officials are urging boosters. take a listen. >> we are in a risky situation even though it's a better situation than we were in before. >> reporter: the fda could authorize pfizer boosters today but the cdc director would have to sign off on that. we'll update you. >> we'll be watching. thank you. public healthcare experts are warning nations to prepare for future flu pandemic. national academy of medicine released a series of reports yesterday. researchers suggest the world is not ready to deal with an influenza pandemic like the one in 1918. the flu killed 50 million to 100 million people through 1919
during that pandemic. researchers recommend countries start developing next generation vaccines and build up capacity levels in poor and middle income nations. a new study suggests about 30% of healthcare workers in u.s. hospitals remained unvaccinated against covid-19 as of september. they note the percentage of vaccinated should increase per the requirement that healthcare workers be fully vaxed. kyle rittenhouse faces five counts including first degree intentional homicide. his defense yesterday asked for mistrial saying they had only a lower resolution copy of the video shown in court. prosecutors say they did not intentionally enrsion. the judge says he will rule on the request if there is a guilty verdict. for the first time in over a decade, house of
