countries. dan thorn live for us in san jose tonight he joins us with more on this decision. pretty controversial. >> that's right. vicki protesters today actually getting so upset that they forced city council to go to an hour long recess this afternoon. several people also voicing their displeasure through the public comment period. but despite all of that city council unanimously passed this new mandate. >> if vaccine and masked protesters come out against san jose city council. their signs, calling the pandemic government tyranny as the city will now require proof of vaccination for large indoor events at city owned buildings could be a break here. >> the people are mandating inoculate do this. that are a criminal probe like this are the mandate affects places like the s ap center. the convention center and the san jose center for the performing arts attendees of events with 50 or more people will need to show proof of vaccination.
>> public comment at tuesday's meeting included several people sharing their frustrations with the plan. >> is not your job to tell me. what i need to do with my body. that's between me and my doctor. we should have the right to choose and country in the land of the free and this is not free for to be mandated. there were far fewer people who spoke out in support of it before the city council. i 100% support a vaccine mandate and passport. >> and look forward to the day that i can safely go out of my house and not be surrounded by anti-vaxers religious extremists and conspiracy theorist. a new indoor mandate comes as covid-19 continues to spread key indicators continue to head in the wrong direction. the goal is to cut down on rapidly rising infections by encouraging people to get vaccinated. mayor sam liccardo responding to those who are not on board with the new rule. there's obviously no sure fire way of eliminating covid we don't
live in that world. we live in a world in which. >> we need to take reasonable measure. second reduce risk. well, this new mandate does not go into effect immediately. mayor sam liccardo says that he will be allowing venue operators some time to adjust grant. >> and they will need time. dan talking about city owned buildings here. are there any talk so about expanding this and having vaccines be mandatory to go inside, you know, places like restaurants and bars. >> definitely something that the city council will likely be considering because of what san francisco has done in terms of making sure that people show proof of vaccination for restaurants bars and indoor gyms. of course, we're going to take a little bit more time right now to sort of see what the results are of that and see what sort of information they can get out of studies of what
san francisco's been doing. but it's certainly something that san jose city council is thinking about and will likely be discussing at a later date. >> all right. dan thorn live for us tonight in san jose. thank you, dan. thanks, dan. and with the pfizer vaccine receiving full use authorization. many are wondering when the state is going to require students to get the vaccine right now. california teachers and staff are required to be vaccinated but only students 12 and older, of course, are eligible to receive the shot. first jonathan mccall talk with education leaders about the timeline is live tonight with us in the studio with details it's a big question that many parents have grant and vicki all signs right now pointing to a matter of not if. >> but only when. when a vaccine mandate could be in effect for california students talking with the alameda county superintendent of education today. she says is the one thing that is on the mind. top of mind for county education leaders across california. >> entities, wasted no time
across america monday. implementing mandatory covid-19 vaccine requirements after the fda granted full use authorization to the pfizer covid-19 vaccine here in the golden state. teachers are already required to receive the vaccine or get weekly test. but now many are wondering just how long it will take before the vaccine is mandated for students. if i had >> look at the way the winds are blowing that there's enough interest and momentum in this for there to be. pressure. >> to have this be mandated. >> okay. monroe is the superintendent of the alameda county office of education. she's also the president of the union representing all 58 california counties superintendents whether there will be a mandate is something that is frequently so it's definitely something that's coming up with this news. i think that this will begin to have more attention and get more traction. monroe says
while it is likely that a mandate will be on the way for students. it's still unknown at this time when it would take effect or what the requirements would look like right now. children under the age of 12 have not received the green light to receive the vaccine each county varies i could say that the majority of this is something that has been discussed and just anecdotally i can say would be welcomed. not all, not all communities would think that this is a good idea as covid-19 cases spike among california students. now back in class after more than a year. she says efforts to limit spread. it's cool simply don't compare to having the vaccine that can protect students outside of the classroom right now. it's the mitigation measures it's making sure that we're following all of the guidance as closely as possible. >> and the game changer at this point from where we were last school year the availability of vaccine.
>> so monroe says once this would take effect there wouldn't be any issues with trying to enforce the mandate. parents would simply have to show proof of the vaccine when registering their children for school. an interesting note on the timeline on when this all could happen. she says actually would depend a lot on the upcoming governor recall election depending on who's in office at the time. jonathan mccall kron 4 news. thank you, jonathan. on the peninsula, the san mateo foster city school district is dealing with a cluster of covid cases between august 16th in august 22nd. there were 14 tested positive for coronavirus. there was also one teacher who tested positive. you can see how many cases popped up at each school on your screen. most only having one to 2 cases foster city elementary reported the most one parent of a kindergartner there says that the district has done a pretty good job handling the outbreak. >> they are doing their best

outdoors around the north. those are all still critical elements of controlling transmission infectious disease. experts agree and say. >> if this, in fact, is the end of the 4th surge. certain behavioral changes must take place this time around. if we're to have long lasting success every time. >> throughout the pandemic that there's been. church. we've stopped it. it's come back down. but then we've opened up too quickly again and relax star guard too quickly. and so we've left ourselves at a higher plateau and then we build on that plateau. so we keep building and building and building up the numbers. but, you know, we don't have to do it that way. >> and that takes us back to doctor fauci is comments that it's really all up to us how things go by spring in san francisco. dan kerman kron 4 news. >> let's do this. all right. stay with kron 4 for continuing covid coverage to scan the qr code with your mobile device. you'll be directed to our web page.

extremely poor to the worst air quality conditions. you can imagine. and that is just kind of settled in there for the night tonight. there's been some slight improvement over the last couple of hours but not much. and now tonight. well, the winds start to calm down that smoke and the settles in and likely will settle into the tahoe basin. so you can see that in around the fire fire just south i'll show you that in just a moment. but spreading all that smoke in that direction. now, we've been some fortunate winds our way as we're getting more of a westerly component win that west wind brings that nice ocean air and brings the weather around the bay area. you've got the cool fog out there, but that fresh air nice and green into santa rosa and means we're looking good through san francisco in an amount. you are seeing some areas shaded yellow here. that means moderate amounts of plumes. but right now these latest conditions for the winds in and around the fire. you can see the fire here just to the south of 50 just the south west of lake tahoe. but the winds today caring all that smoke back up right
