8:03 am
another story that we've been following live this morning. one of the big stories that we're that what's going on vegas in florida. and then also what bars are doing in san francisco because they before the cdc even today. they said you have to wear a mask indoors. and so now it looks like they're going to have the cdc's blessing with that. >> as well. vaccinated or not. you're going to have to show you that that you have a negative covid test or that you have recently been fully vaccinated. this is all part of the sf bar alliance or bar owners alliance. they say they're taking the steps affective this coming thursday proffers amanda hari takes a closer look at what they're planning to do. >> the founder of the alliance tells me that the delta variant made it a parent of a need to do something. the bar alliance has 500 members represent about 300 bars throughout san francisco. that's the majority of the bars. >> in the last few weeks. we started lar ming number of bar staff were vaccinated
8:04 am
contracting the delta variant. >> founder of the san francisco bar owner alliance. ben bleiman says the situation was becoming dire. he says multiple bars had to shut down because of positive cases. they just took a look at the data. >> and you know, the data doesn't lie and it's very clear if you're unvaccinated much, much, much, much, much more likely to spread it blaming decided to reach out to the members of the informal alliance to see if they were interested in official position from the group about requiring proof of vaccination. we did a poll and we have over 80% of respondents before he says unvaccinated individuals can still patronize bars on my face. it outdoors. that's ok, but they want to step foot in our bars. they're going to be a better did he also says that the alliance's official stance is that parklets and patios are okay for unvaccinated individuals. but each bar countries to enforce things. however, they walked they can be more strict or not require
8:05 am
any proof of vaccination. no, we're already seeing some of the most premier bars in san francisco. >> do this. you know, you have the edge in the castro, which is debatable. we want to not that you know, the most popular bar and castro. he says the bar industry has been hit hard by covid-19. >> and they need to do what they can to keep their doors open. we have mouths to feed your grants to pay for homes and for the first 12 months, this was a virus that we can control now we can control the founder tells me he's not necessarily trying to change minds, but that he's trying to protect workers and their families in san francisco. amanda hari kron 4 news. >> 8. '05, a recent report show that huge number of healthcare workers are still unvaccinated for covid-19. in fact, one in for hospital workers nationwide hasn't even received a single dose of the vaccination over 50 national medical association sent organizations are now calling for a nationwide mandate for health care workers to get the
8:06 am
shot. >> commissions and nurses are very much trusted by their patients. but, you know, if i'm going to ask you to do something. i do it myself. and so from that perspective, it's also leadership role for doctors and nurses who got who got to give good critical advice of their patients. and if we're not willing to take the vaccine. you know, how we tell our patients that is safe and effective for them. >> the state of california isn't waiting for a national vaccine mandate. governor newsome in fact, has announced plans to require health care workers to have proof of vaccination or negative test results starting sometime next month. and then there's the children. and if you have young kids who are too young to get vaccinated. i know you're especially concerned about them. well, pfizer and moderna. >> are expanding their covid vaccine trials to younger children hopefully to eventually say that it's safe for them. the fda has reportedly asked these companies to add 3,000 kids between the ages of 5 and 11 to go into their ongoing
8:07 am
studies. they're at the same time you might have heard about a rare side effect was heart inflammation and some people under the age of 30 and the cdc does point out that most of those patients recovered quickly after getting treatment for that side effect. then there's what's going on in some big vegas. one of them and they is only behind florida more cities are having covid problem. yeah. and the warnings going out now. probably not a good idea to visit those cities. in fact, last week the white house singled out las vegas. >> saying according to data, it was the worst large city when it comes to transmission of coronavirus only to be unseated this week by those 3 cities in florida. kron four's will tran is at sfo. >> have you seen anybody who's heading off to vegas today. >> not yet because the first flight for vegas is at 10 o'clock this morning. so night yet, but i did talk to a man who came back from vegas a couple of weeks ago. so all
8:08 am
have a stake in just a few moments. pretty interesting about his take on sin city opening before other places. and if you're going to sin city right now. it's a gamble. you might not want to take because the positivity rate for covid-19 is at 14%. the vaccination rate for clark county and las vegas is in clark county at around 39%. so that is not very high, which is why with james talked about when the white house is advising you perhaps you should not go to vegas if you're not vaccinated, that's never a good sign if you're vaccinated, you could still go. but we've done stories. we're even vaccinated. people have come down with covid-19 perhaps not fatal. but do you really want to roll the dice on that one. i for one, do not want to roll the dice. i know that there are 3 flights taking off, at least from this terminal to vegas today with the first one at 10 o'clock this morning. a lot of people they've heard about this. and as i promised, here's the
8:09 am
gentleman who just got get back from vacant biggest a couple of weeks ago. here's his take on whether it was safe. >> a little bit, a little bit just because, you know, it's it's kind of new to be back open a 100%. see everybody else about the mask on you know, the pool parties the night clubs. you know, closed atmosphere, stuff like that is a little worrisome, but you know, it was nice to see certain people kind of the that keep the it and what weren't getting too close. everybody son. >> so he did say when he said a little bit. a little bit. what is he referring to? was he was a little bit nervous. and that's even before the uptick in covid-19 cases. he said he probably would not go now, he probably would go to the other 3 cities in florida as well. and here's the list for you. you guys talked about it las vegas number for the other 3 cities that bump vegas from the top spot. all 4 florida cities orlando, jacksonville and miami. so you got to be careful and we are waiting for the cdc to come
8:10 am
out with their recommendation. and we'll see what they do with las vegas because las vegas skies. when they're telling people to advise him to wearing their mask indoors. that's an emergency for them because they were very resistant to that. we'll see what happens after the cdc comes down with a recommendation. but right now there's no mask mandate across the board in las vegas. back to okay. thanks a lot. well, and obviously with the cdc coming out this morning saying they're likely going to be. >> updating their guidelines. you're going to want to stay updated on the very latest with what's happening right now and what's coming down the way. >> just scan that qr code. it will take you to a special section of kron 4 dot com that we've set up to cover all things covid-19 related, including the latest guidelines not only nationally but locally as well. so stay up all of that. the kron 4 dot com 8.10, and new this morning, we have breaking news out of tokyo. first of all, us women. >> one, the silver in team
8:11 am
gymnastics. they fell to russia, which won the gold and great britain took bronze. yeah. but that came after some drama superstar american gymnast simone biles pulled out of the team. final competition at the last minute after struggling. >> on the vault really been struggling from the get go. she wasn't seen leaving the arena with a medical staff member and then came back. luckily with her ankle taped to cheer her fellow competitors on from the sidelines. all team usa would say is that she is. coming recovering from a medical issue. but they weren't any more specific than that. so still a lot of question marks surrounding it, but it was a big development for viles. anthony us women's gymnastics team. they are. they were the favorites to win gold. but as daria said, they come away with the silver now and what about some about going forward. that's the question. so they're going to say they're going to assess or like on a daily basis and decided she's going to go into the other competitions that coming up. >> and also big news for team usa the women soccer team are yes. so we're on to the quarter finals berause we drew we had a draw with australia
8:12 am

they're going to charge you upwards of 6 and a half dollars for each of the 2 times you come in first 2 times you come into the city during that were not. >> this is on top of the bridge. by the way, we're not talking about it will bridge tolls right. 6, but they say will be a sliding scale. so how they're going says on income. we're wondering how they're going force the whole thing and how they would take the tolls. yeah, but there's 2 different versions of where this zone would charging would be under one proposal. the corps would basically this be at this area in yellow boarded by broadway division. van ness and the bar coderre. then there's a larger definition of what the court could be and those would include the brown areas here that for yeah, i like it could. where attractions up top talk and russian hill. we're talking hill barkhad arrow up there near fisherman's wharf. >> you're 39. yeah, i this will reduce gridlock, although it would send everybody somewhere else. and i guess would net. let's let's take a listen. >> seems a little bit crazy to
