7:07 am
you go to certain locations within the ballpark to pick up your food. here's mario alley with the san francisco giants. it's not a home opener unless you show up. your thoughts on the fans coming back, sir. well, you know, you think about it the last time we had fans at the ballpark was september of 2019, which is poaches last game. >> and last year was fun with the cut outs, but having fans back and looking back on the oracle park is something we've been looking forward to a dissipating. and we're just excited that, well, we in in some respects we're getting back to normal. why so strict. i know vaccine supplies up and down. >> why are you being so strict compared to say the oakland a's. well, first of all, you know, when we're regulated by the county and the city and county of san francisco. they you know, they really set the guidelines, if you will. but one thing we realized is what we spoke to are season ticket holders during the offseason, the number one issue was fan safety. they want feel safe coming back to the ballpark. so we have a program called fans safe. and if you go to our dot com. you read all
7:08 am
about because really does go through all the details of what it would just one hour protocols will be. so we're going make it a safe environment and again, this is only the first homestand with we're hoping things will loosen up as we get into the season. even ticket sales going so tickets for the month of april. only at this point. but look at its opening day. the sun is coming up. it's just it's just nice to be back. and in the new york teams are doing that. so san francisco giants and the new york teams are recording full vaccination. yeah. i think, you know, one thing i think about if you come into the game, as you mentioned earlier, the that we have, you proof of vaccination or be prepared to show it or a negative covid test. it's just come out early, be patient. i mean, we working this for quite a while. we've all been through so much. just last year you are pre-game ceremony starts at 1 o'clock in so much of it is about the just the word resilient and you'll see as we honor our health care workers and we never now to the first pitch is going to be. but this person definitely is a symbol of of being resilient. so i it's just going to be an emotional
7:09 am
ceremony and and it's great to have everyone back live nominate you. he doesn't he look like a young doctor fauci. so. >> he could threw out the first pitch. i nominate you. he's a humble man. i can tell you not full capacity starting off this home opener will be around 9,000 fans. go giants. it is good to be back home back you. like a kid in a candy store this morning. we'll certainly excited. >> and you're eot even going to this is one of my happy places i tip my to do so for the first time when they're 6 months old apart. >> in the majors. i got my jersey. yeah. no midlife crisis is site and then scream your head off. my relay races is in full effect. but will i actually heard that the ticket 35% are pretty expensive. and you know, i know you love baseball, but i know you love favorite price. you're not. you're not. got. tran park is
7:10 am
available lot cheaper. yes, right. >> his own in the living thank you very much. well, all right. another big story we're following this morning since we're about there at oracle park in san francisco. the city apparently not moving into the yellow tears. they were hoping they would be able to do next week. they would have been the first in the bay area to go into the yellow, which is the least restrictive tier there is. but now maybe next week health officials say because right now they're seeing the rates of hospitalization. >> and cases go a little bit up. >> we have been averaging between 3040 cases and that is that low stable number, especially compared to the 370. all right. so that we were having in january of this item or service. so we're glad that it's reduced by 90%. but we also know that we've seen it creeping up a little bit and more concerning earlier, hospitalizations have have come a little bit. >> yeah. when san francisco does eventually move into the
7:11 am
yellow tier. outdoor gatherings will be able to expand to 200 people without a negative test or proof of vaccination indoor gatherings will also be increased to 200 people. however, in that case you do have to test. negative for the vaccine or church show proof of being vaccinated. so that will be the requirements once sanford just going to see a wheelchair. >> 7.11 and for your money this morning, it's going to cost you more to fill up yes, it will. as we know here in the bay area. we see some of the most expensive even in california, which the most expensive in the country right now in the bay area. it's always worse. kron four's, camila barco takes a look at how painful those prices are. good morning. meal. >> good morning, and i have some good news for you because we're talking about this earlier. you might be coming to one at walnut creek to get your gas out step out of the ways you can get a better look. but if you can see right now, regular prices start at $3 and 85 said that then goes
7:12 am
up to $4.5 and then it goes up to $4 and $0.15 for premium gas. i don't know how you feeling about this, daria, but it sounds better than what you're talking about earlier. but i do want to warn people that this is not the same gas price across creek. some gas stations are averaging more than $4. a gallon according to aaa, the average gas price in california is $3 and $0.92. a bloomberg report says demand has been increasing with more californians driving prices at the pump in california or near their highest since the fall of 2019 the average high back then was $4. i spoke to one driver. jacob york who tells me that he likes to shop around when gas starts getting expensive. and here's what he had to say. >> will definitely what i see him go up. i tried to like, look around here. the cheapest gas prices are. but it's too far away. it's not really worth because your drive next to get anywhere using best anyways.
7:13 am
>> now take a look at your screen. you can see that some and these are the latest average gas prices in the bay area. san francisco already surpassing the $4 mark at $4.4 santa rosa at $4.3 san jose at the threshold at $3.96 and oakland gas stations are averaging about $3 and $0.95. that's not my morning here at the chevron in walnut creek talking to. >> drivers about these gas prices, some of them are not happy. however, others say that this is just a regular thing that we've seen throughout the years. then one man says that this is just a part of life guard, james, that know how you're feeling about it, but well, driving now thinking about how much i'm driving. yeah. and one of the deal you're right. that gas station particular 3.85 turns out that is a deal. scary. thank you. camila. >> 7.13 the time. still ahead on the kron 4 morning news

7:32 am
president biden says it's time to take action to curb gun violence. yeah. we showed you live on our air yesterday as he announced a set of executive actions as well as legislative proposals. >> 2 in essence curb gun violence by in place putting in place with he would argue are sensible gun controls. there are only certain things that he can do without congress. so let's talk more about this with our political analyst michael yaki. good morning, michael. >> good morning, james. good morning to what do you think about lawmakers responses and what the president plans to do. >> well, gerri, if you we had a pandemic for 600,000 people have died and the federal government's response was basically take 2 aspirin and call us in the morning. that's essentially been the response of the federal government for the last 20 years. the gun violence in the united states. 600,000 people have died because of guns and. we have tried on a number of tough. the cajuns got nowhere. now the president, what president biden doing. has at least
7:33 am
early in his term trying to refocus the debate once again on the need for it. sensible gun control. so by going after these ghost guns. these. because even the civil bike hit by mail order of 8 federal law. by by putting in red flag laws that allow family members to to up notify the that law enforcement when they have a family member who may be. oswalt community harm to himself or others. by working on banning the use of those. is still making act like rifles. those are nice. those are nice. those are good steps. but it's really all about we focus and the attention of where the action needs to be. that is in congress for every bill that is gone after newtown after after our client has just gone to die in that needs to change because we hear this all the time, you know, in the wake of these mass shootings. >> you've got people pushing for regulation. you have others on the other side saying now is not the time. we
7:34 am
just heard earlier this week from senator lindsey graham saying that a ban on assault rifles is a nonstarter for him. >> but he would be willing to talk about maybe background checks. is there some room actually get legislation passed because as we know, executive orders could be overturned with the next president. >> exactly. and background checks by the way, have like in near 77 to 8.98%, approval rating. even a great majority among people who are at arraignment for us. and what we're talking about isn't is ensuring that unlicensed dealers can't make sales. they have to go through someone who's license, which means that they had a background check can be performed and would close that. what what's called the charleston loophole which allowed doing roof to get a gun even though he's never should have been you want because the background check to took too long. the law currently allows the dealer to simply say, well, if after 3 days i don't hear from the fbi. i can tell you the gun that would change that. the 20 days these are the things that need to happen. but lindsey graham's point.
7:35 am
actually more needs to be done in assault rifles need to be on the agenda. there is there is a big difference between being able to protect your family and your home. it in your home and then going out. they're going out. you know, with ar 15 and storming the capitol michigan. we there's a there's a difference there. and i think people understand that. >> you drove parallel in the beginning between the pandemic and gun violence and how what happens, how we react and what may be rights. we have to suspend or not. so i'm going to bring up the pandemic when the administration says they don't plan to go as far as having a covid vaccine passport nationwide statewide is a different you know, new york's actually got one that they're testing right now. right. and some people are going to say this opens the can of worms similar like this is my constitutional right. my protection might freedom's my privacy and when where do you see the the debate falling
7:36 am
along that. >> but the issue about vaccine as we're just really more short term because it's about how you can try and some people can get normality because they're fully vaccinated and jen can businesses, for example, or or or airlines. so what we want to get those people honor planes and make them feel safe. but the real issue recently they don't want to focus on the vaccine passwords. actually a good to one and that is they need to get everyone vaccinated. they need to get herd immunity in this country. they need to be able to develop the variance, get people used to going in for the booster shot to to deal with the south african variant of the brazilian by a variant. whatever is out there. so vaccine password is kind of a side to the possible of of of of a soft reopening reopening. but the real continued urgent message that they emphasizing, which is the right one is they've got to get people vaccinated. they need the by missed. ration has moved up the amount of doses that will be available for
7:37 am
everyone to april 19th just next week. people should be able to to. states need to build implement that rapidly in arms because it is very possible. i mean, like and given a new governor newsome said sitting june 15th for the reopening california. that's possible. that's doable but only if people focus, i'm getting the vaccine. i think the vaccine passport or something. they don't want it really spend a lot of brain power because it's all about getting shots in arms still. but i think there's also going to be that same kind of a fight. you see people who say, you know, it reeks of show us your papers. you know, i mean, it's got it. >> just i think the people who are against. the infringement of the right to own a gun are going to be against the infringement of the government telling in the half to get a vaccine or show proof of a vaccine. well, you know. >> but a lot of people remember this, but you know, i do. may be where we a couple
7:38 am
couple years old. it's a couple. but you used to be able to have to show your vaccine records. when you travel abroad, you had to be able to show you back work towards to get into certain schools and right and i don't see any reason why you can't show some kind of record or to get a guy like that. you be used to kill 5, 1015, 2030, people. at a by people who know no business having that kind of kind of what 3 weaponry at their disposal. >> a lot of interest in similarities with what's going on. thank you so much. and there's the you know, the lives yeah. michael, thank you again for a chat with you soon. thank you both. it's all right. we'll be right back.
7:39 am
7:40 am
7:41 am
and we're back. some. 41 is the time in the north bay windsor police now are investigating assault allegations against the mayor of windsor. >> dominick for polling. now this comes after the san francisco chronicle published an article which claimed 4 separate accounts of alleged abuse. several sonoma county officials in response believe that he needs to step down from his position while this is being investigated. >> in that interim period between accusations and innocence or guilt. it's a major distraction for your city is in no position to serve as a leader of this community. >> at the end of the day, everyone has a right to a trial. you don't have a right to hold elected office.
7:42 am
>> earlier this week for polling was appointed to the board of directors of the golden gate bridge highway and transportation district. and we've heard the district supervisor lynda hopkins is taking steps now to rescind that appointment kron 4 has reached out to the mayor for some comment. but so far we have not heard back. >> for today. going to be another comfortably, cool. one across the bay area getting a little mix of sunshine and cloud cover. right above sfo right now. skies will clear out of the afternoon going to feel. all right. as long as you have the jacket with you. most of our highs in the 60's. your forecast is ahead. >> and we've got a busy morning thus far a hot spot along highway 24. that's clear. now, i'm also tracking a new accident in the city and your drive times across the bay area. we'll have more on that coming up after the break.

7:44 am
