'06, is the tcme other news that we're covering this morning.
7:07 am
breaking news from overnight young kids are one step closer to getting the covid vaccine. pfizer has submitted a request to the fda for children age 5 to 11 to be able to get the shots under emergency use. and so if they do that, the fda is already set up an independent look at this. the panel will meet on october 20 6 and that means the shots could go into arms as early as probably between thanks to halloween thanksgiving. >> also happening today. we have local health officials expected to reveal some new guidance on what it will take to take the masks off of ensure we are seeing a decline in covid cases in the bay area. covers camila barco is live. >> at the contra costa county health offices martinez with more. hi, camilla. >> good morning. so, yeah, the bay area's on its way to lifting its indoor mask mandate. but before people can take off the mask when they're at restaurants or inside the shops health officials want counties to follow a few requirements like tara said,
7:08 am
noting that the covid case rates are down and santa cruz lifted its mask mandate, but medical experts want local health officials to take some things into consideration when thinking about letting go of wearing mask inside. so for example, last year in late october covid cases increased as the delta variant circulated local bay area health official doctor sara cody says health officers need to look at the case rates to make sure that they are low and stable. they also need to consider the impact on hospitals and the vaccination rates. however, a ucsf professor of epidemiology says right now is not the time to let go of the indoor mask rules. >> i mean, obviously we all want to move. well, really quickly, we want to make this done with. this may not be the right time, but 6 and a half million people in the bay area. if 90% of actually that's still 655,000 people that aren't vaccinated. so, you know, that's if the if there evenly distribute to the population. that's one thing. but if there they congregate
7:09 am
then, you know, that's the places where we have. we have outbreaks. >> now the level of transmission could be another factor taken into consideration if you remember, california did set up a color-coded tier system which established covid safety requirements for each county. the state retired it in june. but according to the cdc, every bay area county is in an orange or red tier which means transmission is substantial or high. and as of this morning, no county in california is in the sea. cdc's yellow tier which signifies a low level of covid transition transmission in the community. so again, those bay area health officers are meeting today and our genes by the end of day. we may know what it will take to loosen up those indoor mask rules. back to you guys. all right. thanks a lot, >> also new this morning, the u.s. coast guard was on board the ship that may have caused
7:10 am
that massive oil spill in southern california. while it was docked overnight. >> right here in oakland and the associate press says investigators were given access to the ship. it's called the rotterdam express and it is the focus of the spill investigation or one of the things they're looking at. it's believed an anchor from a ship broke the pipeline and made a 13 inch and that caused the spill, the company that owns that particular ship says that they didn't play a role, but they are cooperating. the shift left. they left the port of oakland about an hour ago. we don't know where they're headed now. know. meanwhile, more workers are on the way to help clean up that massive oil spill. this is all off the orange county coast. some of the oil in the water has begun to break up naturally but coast guard crews that are out there continue to use technology like those booms to try and. >> sweep out as much of that oil as possible. now the company's pipeline broke is having to answer questions about their response to the spill as well. the federal investigators say that oil company did not shut down the pipelile for several hours
7:11 am
after the leak was reported. but the company says that's not true. the coast guard is hoping to have 1500 workers on the beaches to help with the cleanup effort in the next few days. a fuel leak that took place in the bay here along san francisco's hyde street pier has now been contained. >> it happened after a 34 foot fishing boat sank wednesday morning. we have pictures of the scene there it is. the coast guard was on there on the site. they're working to contain and clean up the sheen that was on the water. we're not sure exactly how much gas leaked into the bay. but we do know that the boat can hold up to a maximum of 260 gallons. one person was on board at the time and was able to quickly get off that boat and call for help. no word yet on what caused that boat to sink. >> 7.11. and coming up after the break, one south bay city has a new plan to house the homeless. we'll tell you how. and after the break could be a big day for tesla. they're deciding if they're going to move their headquarters out of the bay area to texas.

7:48 am
working its way through those clouds. a couple of offshore sprinkles. we did see a few sprinkles around mount tam this morning. aside from that, though, bay area stays dry today. it's more than we can say for at least the entirety of the state tomorrow as we do see this cold front that's really just placed itself across the region. it's going to continue to offer up cloud cover and also cooler temperatures tomorrow. we do see a few showers trying to reach the bay, but they're going to be more successful in the central coast. the central valley as well as the sierra foothills ignore that blew up in the sierra nevada to which is snowfall and much-needed snow fall at that. so although we're really not tapping into that energy here in the bay we are seeing some moisture elsewhere and that snow in the sierra is super-duper. welcome. nice to see that. something else to note about tomorrow, the middle of the day. we get a good dose of sunshine before resurgence of cloud cover friday night into saturday morning. a few predawn sprinkles on saturday morning before a sunny rest of the day on saturday really comfortable one too. so this forecast is actually

one 85 here that's just adjacent to a 80. you could go ahead and take that to try to get around. also northbound 80 south of davis street in san leandro. another accident there. so again, seeing some delays along there. the san mateo bridge because it's so close to that accident. a little under 19 minutes for you to make a cross towards the peninsula. so we are seeing a slight delay along the san mateo bridge. the bay bridge traveling into the city from the east bay. little under 19 not because of any accidents. just more traffic. there. checking richmond sandra fell commute as you head out of richmond, a little under 15 minutes for us checking out along highway 4.43 as you're heading from any act, one 60 along to conquer to 42 darya. james, back to you. thanks alassane 15 as the drought continues. some bay area homeowners are investing in new technology. they can extract water. >> from the air. it looks like an air conditioner. neat uses coils to chill the air and then drops the water into a basin to purify it and the
7:51 am
design engineer compares it to dehumidifier the air creating water that he says is safe to drink. the technology was originally developed to help when there's no water because of a disaster like a hurricane or wildfire and people need to get water elsewhere. >> begin to realize that there's a lot of need out there, but it's not continuous. it's on again off again. so we kind of backed off the research and we came down to something instead of making massive amounts of water, something that made more efficient water so we thought, well, this would be great. least 2 water, our garden we start looking at the quantity of water produces and that. >> actually, you know, the unit that we bought into some more than ample for over what first of all, of what's going to need some ample funds to. there are some downsides first it takes a lot of energy to run. >> connecting them to solar panels can help see, you know, solar kasia got to set that up and they can only make water when the air is humid enough.
7:52 am
so they can't always provide a constant supply of water. >> well, new water conservation measures are on the horizon for the city of san jose with the city looking now at a more aggressive and a more consistent way too. i don't know change how we do our daily lives of the weekend effect of this ongoing drought. mayor sam liccardo announced a proposal to basically start a citywide water saving guideline of 15% and also setting up an enforceable today a week watering odd number had dresses could water on some days even numbers on others as one way of trying to reduce water usage. the new mandates would make a water use standard across the city. we want to all get on the same page. we think that says a water company is on to something. >> and we think that's right approach and it's the more aggressive approach what we need to take to can serve in this very, very challenging time. >> yes, city staff also want to require new. developments to only plant drought tolerant
