5:03 am
themselves up in the meantime, they still have this whole area blocked off reyna had mentioned some of the streets that are being occupied at this point. so they're just telling people to stay away from the area until this is resolved and they're really hoping for a peaceful resolution that that person will eventually come out peacefully. in the meantime, we really don't know exactly their connection to the previous shooting that happened late last night. they they definitely seem to be there some kind of connection between them. so they're really hoping that this person comes out peacefully. back to you guys. all right. thanks a lot. we'll check in with you later. you only. >> 5. '03, is the time and where are the top stories this morning. all californians age 16 and older are now eligible to set up a covid-19 vaccine appointment. but just because you're eligible doesn't necessarily mean you'll get that appointment right away as we've been reporting, it's all supply dependent with kron. four's will tran live in berkeley with more on the
5:04 am
story. good morning. well. >> good morning, james and area like i tell my kids wanting is not getting i know a lot of people would like to get their shots. but demand was already all over the place. and now with the largest age group added to it 16 to 49 with about 18 to 90 million people in that particular age group. well, the supply was already stretched thin. you can imagine is even thinner now. but the bottom line is it is available to you and it was available starting at midnight. so about 5 hours into maybe you're watching us. and then on your computer trying to book appointments. if you go to my turn, they say that they can handle about 300,000 appointments every hour you can imagine with that new age group. that number should go up as well. they're stressing that you be patient. this being open season. but the bottom line is it is now available to that particular age group. they knocked out
5:05 am
some of the older age groups. and then now with 16 to 49 that is available to you. keep in mind the key word that you need to know. patients. >> reply continues to be limited and of course with vaccine buzz. it's it's even more limited. and with more demand. we're expecting the demand will be there. certainly encourage people to try but recognize that that may have to try number of times. >> so try try, try again at my but there is hope chains and area because we have your health care provider. you have pharmacies like the one rsght behind me at walgreens. they already supposedly updated their website as well. so you can go to those other locations. i know a couple of our fellow co-workers while they were at work. they kept the separate screen open at walgreens for appointments that they did a little bit earlier. so keep that screen open. keep trying. the bottom
5:06 am
line is it is open season. they hope to get everybody vaccinated over the next several months or so. but that particular age group is available and has been of a available in certain counties like contra, costa county and that is good news because they started knocking out that age group a little bit earlier. so there's not that one mad rush couple of hours ago. so it's kind of staggered. bottom line is it is the largest a group. be patient with it walgreens might be your best choice be so many people will go to my turn back to you. all right. thank you very much. we'll yeah. and as a side note in the south bay. >> levi stadium has also done a great job of getting vaccines out. in fact, the number of covid-19 vaccines that they've now distributed is over a 105,000. that's fantastic. that number also expected to continue growing has now eligibility has expanded everyone 16 or older. so if you can't get a walgreens, perhaps one of these mass vaccination sites like at levi's or the see him.
5:07 am

return to san francisco an all obviously good news for tourism. they need it back. kron four's camila barco standing by live at the moscone center. >> with more on the story. good morning. camila. >> good morning again, starry. and that's right. this is going to be an economic boost for the city of san francisco. it's going to bring back visitors guest in. of course, tourism dollars. but even though indoor live events can resume its going to be on a case by case basis depending on the venue. so here's a breakdown of how this is all going to work out. san francisco will open indoor ticketed and seeded events up to 35% capacity. private events like meetings and conventions may resume indoors with up to a 150 participants. people will still need to follow safety protocols like wearing face mask and social distancing. now the venue could still require you to show that you are covid free so that means participants can be asked to present proof of a negative covid test or that you're fully vaccinated. again, that will depend on the
5:10 am
venue itself. places with 15% capacity are not required to do this. so as long as these businesses comply with require capacity limits and safety protocols they can reopen reopen starting today at 08:00am now here back out live at the muskogee center conventions have been on hold for the last year. building has been transformed into a vaccine site. but darya james, there is a convention already scheduled for later this fall. we have much more information about indoor live events resuming at kron 4 news dot com. all right, james, back to you. very good. thank you. camila. >> all right. also in san francisco, mayor london breed is challenging people to buy from small businesses during the month of may all to help out small neighborhood businesses that are recovering from the pandemic. so the city has given some relief to the small businesses through 75 million dollars in grant money and loans and fee waivers. but that's not enough. and mayor breed wants the public wants. you to step

5:31 am
foppoli. the mayor that the town council voted to asked to step down. now the absent member is a council woman accusing foppoli of drugging and sexually assaulting her despite the majority vote. there's nothing council can do is i said to get him out because there has to be a recall election or he has convicted of a crime. right now. the allegations of assault from 6 different women are being investigated by the attorney general. one of those alleged victims is with windsor, councilwoman esterly miss she recused herself from the meeting rightfully so because she says i'm a part of this ongoing criminal investigation. she claims foppoli drugged and assaulted her on 2 occasions during the meeting. members of the council and many people who live in windsor called for full poli to step down for the sake of the town. >> say that you love windsor. >> then resign, resign, resign you absolutely discussed me. but again, as a resident of
5:32 am
this i beg you to please not drag us through this recall process also had dozens and dozens of people reach out to me thi past week offering their support. >> i've been telling them what i'm going to tell you. i have my head held high because i know deep in my heart that have done nothing criminally wrong and will eventually be cleared. i'm not without fault, but i'm not a criminal. >> many in windsor say they not only want the poli gone, but they want the entire council to step down, too, because of what we told you yesterday about the council knowing about allegations against the poli all the way back in 2017 and then again in 20 20. but in last night's meeting, they did clarify from the town manager. they said in alleged incident against the boy didn't come out, but it was never given to the police was given to mayor fudge and the town manager said the person who wrote it never wanted for pulley to face charges then or now so that person's claim kind of just got dropped because police had without the victim. there wasn't much they could do at
5:33 am
the time foppoli again, as you heard maintains his innocence and he's not going to resign during the time of this investigation as it is ongoing. so it will be interesting to see if charges are put against him or not. and what happens on the day things that the council needs to go through. i mean, how awkward is that? he's staying on the council. the council doesn't want him to be there and they have to get things done for the towns. so a lot to still learn as this develops. for now live in windsor. sarah stinson, back to you. thanks a lot, sarah. >> on the peninsula. the family of a man shot and killed by redwood city police in 2018 is now suing the police department. the lawsuit says that officers killed kyle hart why he was suffering from a mental health crisis. police say they acted in self-defense because he was armed conflicts. dan thorn takes a closer look. >> there's no police body cam video to show the moments before redwood city police officers killed kyle hart
