6:01 am
towards livermore in concord. some pockets lower visibility as well. skies are dry this morning. couple spots of coastal drizzle, but aside from that, nothing like the north bay sprinkles. we had yesterday 40's and 50's for a current temps with oakland and alameda at 50 degrees. napa valley hoedown through dublin and livermore all at 48 reyna. john, thank you so much. of a really starting to pick up here at the bay bridge. >> not a result of any accidents that i'm seen. they just turn the meteor lights on. so you're seeing more traffic, 20 minutes to that fremont street exit at 06:00am so i can only expect this to get longer. no high wind advisories along the bridge today. we do have one on the altamont pass. so drive slow. there. the san mateo bridge and across towards the peninsula. no accidents, no delays, just 12 minutes for your commute as you're heading across the richmond. sandra fell bridge under 8 minutes. as you head to richmond and checking on things in the south lawn. 1, one to 80 looks good when a one 85 all great there. we'll have more coming up next. but for now, daryn. james, back to you. thank you.

6:03 am
weekend. in fact, on saturday they were able to get 4 million people vaccinated in a single 24 hour period. >> so the number of vaccines going into arms seems to be climbing higher and higher, which is great news, especially when it comes to trying to get things real and there's more good news on this tour tuesday. we're going to see who in the bay area gets to move to the less respect of war is chair. >> so didn't get to alameda santa clearest images they didn't get to do last week. maybe today's the day for sarah stinson live for us at petaluma where everybody's got their fingers crossed. sarah, good morning. >> that's right. things are looking good here in sonoma county. so i'm sure people are just waiting for the good news and i can tell you, i mean, the numbers are trending downward and they have been for the last 2 weeks here in sonoma county so we could see them very well move into the orange tier today. we'll have to wait and see what the state officials do decide. but we know the latest information on the sonoma county website says that there's about 3.6 new
6:04 am
cases per day per 100,000 people. and right now the orange tier choirs county to have a covid kate covid-19 case rates between one in 3.9 cases per 100,000 people. so we're just right under and honestly, the 3.6 number should be updated to little bit of an old number. so hopefully they update that today. and we really an update for you. plus, you have to be in that ear for with declining county has been in the red tier since march 14th. some of the changes that come with the orange tier. take a look at your screen just to remind you and if you live in sonoma county, this is where you need to perk years up. we've got 50% capacity it at indoor dining. so that's more people eating indoors. and then you have retail stores and shopping malls operating at full capacity and churches. movie theaters. those can expand at 50% capacity while indoor gyms, wineries and breweries open at 25% capacity bars can also open out doors.
6:05 am
sonoma county would be joining san francisco san mateo alameda and santa clara counties in the orange tier. if they do, in fact, get lead in its just a matter of the state thinking, ok, are there numbers can to continue to go down or are they projecting a port a little bit so stay tuned. we're going to keep an eye on this for now we're going to be here in petaluma, checking in with people to see how they feel on the brink of opening up a little bit further for now live in petaluma. sara stinson back to you, ok. we'll check in with you later. thanks a lot, carol. >> well, that's not all. state leaders say more changes could be coming to california's blueprint for reopening. so the entire thing could be adjusted a bit to help counties moved to less restrictive tiers. a little more easily. as of today. most of the state remains in the red tier which allows businesses to open with just minimal capacity. but those rules could be relaxed once 4 million doses of the vaccine are distributed to it. the least healthy zip codes across the state. once that's done, then things could be changed
6:06 am
after announcing that large gatherings and my performances and conferences could be allowed later this month. officials say they're working right now on even less restrictive green tear that eventually could get to. >> additional guidance is coming soon and that was quite a lot more information about when we get past to keep it all together. getting have to it will still take more time and more vaccinations continuing to monitor it actually right in the trends, but he will provide that road map. >> state officials say the new road map is expected to be released potentially by the end of the week. and we'll let you know when they do. >> bay area, doctors are now investigating 7 more coronavirus cases that might be linked to that variant from india. and it's believed that the first case of the variant was discovered in santa clara county kron four's. rob fladeboe has more. >> by a technique called genomic sequencing. the stanford clinical virology lab has identified one case of the india variant it is thought to
6:07 am
have occurred in the patients from santa clara county and the lab is now working to confirm another 7 suspected cases says lab director doctor benjamin pinsky. we know it's in our area and it's a little it's a relatively low prevalence at the moment. >> but it's something to watch out for in case it does increase in numbers. doctor pinsky says they have a lot to learn about this latest variant. >> which may be to blame for recent surge of cases in india. the variant is being called a double mutant because it is to mutations which could possibly make it that much more infectious. so this is a variant that has mutations similar to the california variant as well as south africa and. >> brazil variance. it looks like it may be more transmissible and potentially. able to be neutralized by and
6:08 am
potentially. vaccines may be less effective at preventing infection with this particular area. >> in the parts of india where the double mutant variant is most prevalent new cases are up as much as 50%. other more infectious strain of the virus from brazil and south africa have also been found in the bay area and may be somewhat resistant to vaccines. but there is no need to panic. the india very it is one more reason to vaccinate as many people as possible as soon as possible, says doctor pinsky, we shouldn't panic color making incredible progress on vaccination. >> places like stanford are prepared to identify these emerging >> we identify them rapidly. this one was identified within one day of its reporting in india and we're reporting these variants then to the public health authoritie so they can make. important decisions. >> the county health department says it is not currently monitoring the india variant because so far it is

you cozy as you're venturing out there, temperatures are a bit cooler than we got used to them last week for sure. >> looking outside right now. we do have conditions in our live camera network here in berkeley that are looking a little cloudy, but certainly not foggy bait by any means, at least over berkeley do watch out for some spots of fog is further inland across the inland east bay. then across the north bay, too. as far as conditions go on radar right now. it is nice and dry out there. a couple spots of coastal drizzle may be seen, but all in all, this is a dry forecast ahead of us enough influence from high pressure to our south to be continuing to push any chae ncof rainfall out of the region. well, to our north light onshore breeze this morning. just enough for that ocean cool there push down into the bay area. and that's really the way the rest of the force cast is going to be looking really not a lot of changes ahead of us for the remainder of this week. partly cloudy skies this morning, partly cloudy this afternoon. but a few more opportunities to step outside and enjoy some sunshine between the clouds towards mid afternoon. later
6:16 am
today. tomorrow is actually going to be a touch of a cooler one. we'll start the day with some more cloud cover and even those skies will clear into the afternoon. temperatures will only rise into the 60's for most of our highs come wednesday as for today's daytime highs, 50's and 60's near the coastline. but we actually do have a good share of 70's elsewhere in the bay burlingame at 66 foster city and carlos also right at 66 south bay temps sharing a range of upper 60's to low 70's for your highs. san jose at 71 same number for livermore actually hayward oakland berkeley and richmond low to mid 60's for you conquered at 71 vacaville year. the warm spot again today at 75. well, santa rosa nevado in sandra fell close to the 70's both in the upper 60's today tomorrow's temperatures. i mentioned a little bit cooler falling into the mid 60'-. we remain in the 60's through thursday and friday before daytime highs really warm up into the weekend. nothing like we were late last week but highs back into the upper 70's by next
6:17 am
sunday. reyna john, thank you. so we do have a hot spot here on the bay bridge. >> i just spoke to see gp and they tell me that there was actually a pedestrian on the ridge near the westbound side just east of the toll plaza. so again, the meter lights went on, they were able to get that pedestrian in an ambulance actually no reported that person was hit or that person was just walking on the bridge. but now we're seeing major delays as a result of that incident about 29 minutes or so to that fremont street exit, that person is no longer on the bridge. so maybe this will improve or we might see conditions on the rich. stay that way for the rest of the morning. let's look at the other bridges, though the san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula under 40 minutes for your drive time there. a look at the richmond sandra fell commute out of richmond under 8 minutes and things of great here in the south bay along one. oh, one and 2, 80 just at 27 minutes. so we'll have more on that coming up next. but for now, james, back to you. all right, randi, thank it's 6.17. >> it was murder. that is what the minneapolis police chief
6:18 am
said about george floyd's death. it was on the stand that the chief testified that officer derek chauvin had clearly violated department policy when he pin floyd's neck beneath his need for more than 9 minutes. karen winter has the latest. >> on the stand on the 6th day of show, the murder trial. the doctor who tried to save george floyd's light last be our physician. doctor bradford lack and failed testified that floyd was in cardiac arrest and attributed the cause to oxygen deprivation mister floyd had been arrested for. >> by this time. 60 minutes. i determined that the likelihood of any meaningful outcome was far below one percent. and that we would not be able to resuscitate mister floyd, felt set up on the patients arrival. there were no reports cpr had been performed at the scene which he believes could have increased floyd's chance of survival was your leading theory for the cause of mister floyd's cardiac arrest. >> oxygen, oxygen. that was. >> one of the more likely
6:19 am
possibilities. i thought that at the time based on the information i had. it was. more likely than the other possibilities. prosecutors are trying to establish a causal factor that chauvin's knee to floyd's neck triggered his cardiac arrest which ultimately resulted in his death. >> during cross examination. defense attorney eric nelson argued that certain drugs like methamphetamine and fentanyl both found in floyd's system could also cause asphyxia when someone ingests froot and all. >> you can cause them to feel very sleepy because of an increased carbon dioxide. and that's one of the reasons ultimately that from north so dangerous because it suppresses the respiratory system agreed. >> the primary reason it is so dangerous. also testified minneapolis police chief medaria arradondo who previously called floyd's death, quote, murder. he fired chauvin and 3 other officers involved in the incident the day after floyd's death. he's appears to be wearing a navy
6:20 am
blue suit. >> with the light blue tie and white shirt. the chief identified chauvin in court and is expected to testify that chauvin used excessive and unreasonable force in detaining floyd that day. that was in line with the department's policy on the use of force consistent with their training. this body of knowledge that they've been taught. >> should at least be kind of forefront in terms of the different tools that they'll be uses using possibly. >> to help the escalate that situation. >> well, that was kareen wynter reporting for us marines hall who was in the vehicle with george before he died is going to be in court today testified. >> it's 6, 20. and in national news, republicans have made it clear that they don't like the president's 2 trillion-dollar infrastructure plan. but no matter the democrats don't need their support and they might get it passed anyway. washington, dc correspondent anna wiernicki is live in washington to tell us how that would work. i am.
6:21 am
>> hi, good morning. that's right. republicans have already vowed to fight this package every step of the way. but like you said, they met mining, not even matter because democrats now only need to get members of their own party on board in order to pass it. >> the senate parliamentarian said monday democrats can use budgetary rules to pass president biden's 2 trillion dollars, infrastructure package without the need for republican support. the rule known as reconciliation means democrats only need a simple majority to pass the bill in the senate and bypass the need for 10 republican votes to break a filibuster, which means. >> then it will just be a democrat. only bill and that's unfortunate still republicans pledge to put up a fight. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell says the president's initial proposal won't get any republican support. >> because it's too big and not focus on immediate infrastructure needs white house press secretary jen psaki says the president would like the bill to be bipartisan. he know some
6:22 am
members think it's too some think it's too too frankly, there. >> been folks have come out on both sides of which we fully expected open to hearing ideas and proposals from members and we encourage them to put them forward. democrats now need to focus on rallying their own members, including west virginia senator joe manchin who said monday that he and a few other senate democrats oppose the bills. corporate tax hike. >> the white house initially proposed raising the corporate tax rate from 21% to 28% to pay for the bills. 2 trillion dollar price tag over the next 15 years. senator manchin says that's way too high. he would like to see it at 25% rate live in washington. i'm anna wiernicki. back to you. >> thanks a lot and we'll check in with you later. >> 6.22. is the time. coming up on the kron 00:00am morning news in babel, florida congressman matt gates says he will not resign from congress amid allegations he slept with a minor will have the very latest on the story coming up.

the i can tell you whether way to the jacket or not but not what i would say where the jacket today. we are going to be looking at one of those days that is seasonably cool across the bay area and the fact that we have some great across the bay to start the morning just means that you want to bundle up a little bit more. not going to be seeing much sunshine for your morning hours, at least one of those views. that's especially gray this tipper, i actually you can see that we do have some low cloud cover in just enough of it to be blocking out the view of the golden gate bridge in the distance. one of our cloud your views in a few days out there, right along the coastline. visibility is being affected right now by this low cloud cover in napa, nevado santa rosa as well as conquered in livermore, although not widespread of fog do watch out for patches of it. that will result in some lower visibility spots. cloud cover across the bay this morning before partly cloudy skies later on today and temperatures currently in the 40's and 50's. so whether it's a sweater or light jacket. just make sure you're prepared as you get outside the door on the school tuesday. reyna tom,
6:31 am
thank you. so the bay bridge still very much a hot spot. but recovering. >> we had a pedestrian on the bridge earlier this morning. and again, chp and fire were able to get that person off a bridge is on the westbound side right near the toll. so they had the metering lights on. now they've to could get that person off the bridge still about 18 minutes were up to about 30. so that tells me things are getting better as you head into the city to the fremont street exit. look at the san mateo bridge 13 minutes. we've got no issues or delays seen reports of an hazard on the westbound side. but i'm not seeing the time go up as a result of that. looking at the richmond, sandra fell bridge 7 minutes as you head out of richmond and still checking on things down south here along one oh, one looks 80's. well, 29 minutes as you head towards menlo parks will have more on that coming up. the darya and james, back to you. thanks a lot. right now. >> so to our developing story this morning. a lawsuit is being filed now against the city of danville following a fatal police shooting last month.
6:32 am
>> and this morning we're getting a look at new video that leads up to the moments before that shooting kron four's will tran is live in danville with the details. good morning. well. >> good morning, james and area. yes, the federal lawsuit will be filed against the danville police department in just a few hours from now from prominent civil rights attorney john burris who called what the police officer did cold murder. let me show you the clay that he represents 32 years old. here's a picture of him tyrel wilson. he's described as a homeless man in the area on march 11th when calls came into the danville police department. accusing him of throwing rocks off an overpass. that's when officers arrived to the scene specifically officer andrew hall. let me show you the video of the fatal shooting. this was captured by a bystander in the car. you can see hall and wilson very close to each other and then all of a sudden one shot was fired by hall. wilson drops to the ground. he was taken to the
6:33 am
hospital a few minutes after the shooting, he would ultimately die about 6 days later, why. according to the danville police department hall felt compelled to shoot was because of this. they claim that wilson refused to drop his his knife when he was holding it in his hand. that whole asked him to drop it. he refused. and that's when they claim that hall felt threatened for his life and that's when he opened fire. according to burris, that violated his civil rights also that hall he claims did not de escalate the situation. and i already told you that he already believes that was cold murder. he isn't the only one here is video of a protest vigil that took place late last month when a lot of people showed up to the scene where wilson was fatally shot whitehall. they're protesting with burris and i'm sure they will be out at the news conference. because verse will hold a news conference before filing filing that federal
6:34 am
lawsuit. this is not the first time hall has been under fire, so to speak, from john burris. here's video back in 2018. he also fired a fatal shot 3 years ago. and this is video from a dashcam with a police officer in pursuit of another man at that particular time hall was in front of the car and he fired 9 times into the car claiming that had he not fire a shot at the driver that that driver would a random and probably would have killed them that particular driver died as well. he is also being represented by john burris and even though that lawsuit was filed 2 years ago in 2019. that is still ongoing. sobers and danville. police. they obviously have a relationship with dates to officers. i can tell you that he will be here. he will have a news conference and we will cover that for you as well. so this is a very explosive situation as far as andrew hall. he has been placed on paid administrative
6:35 am
leave pending this investigation back to you. >> all right. thanks a lot. we'll check in with you throughout the morning. well, 6.34 the time to the north bay now where healdsburg business owner says she's worried about not only her safety but of her workers and customers as well after she received a racist. >> hate filled letter proffers dan thorn has the story. >> what we've learned this racist letter was sent to other asian owned nail salons across the state among the hateful stereotypes and epithets within it. asian. americans are told to leave the country. and in response city leaders say there's no room for racism in healdsburg. >> a disturbing and racist letter directed at asian americans is sent to a healdsburg business. the hateful words calling them ugly smelly and disgusting have left. vicki my in disbelief it just really heartbreaking. >> it. just yeah. >> it's really disturbing the letter was sent to my salon
