10:05 pm
according to jim norton, there's no specific reason as to why those 2 people have not yet received the vaccine. as for the rescheduled game, the game against usc has now been scheduled for december. 4th. but the cal berkeley bears are set to next. take the field against the stanford cardinal in stamford on november 20th. we're live tonight on the cal berkeley campus jonathan mccall kron 4 news. jonathan, thank you for that. and on the heels of that new tonight, the alameda county health officers issued a new health order. >> requiring all first responders to be fully vaccinated by december 21st this includes police officers firefighters and paramedics. however workers who don't get the shot will have the option to get tested every week as an alternative. they must also continue to wear masks. >> meantime, covid cases and hospitalizations are slowly rising across california and that has health experts concerned about the possibility of another winter serve on 4 grant lodes joins us now in the studio with a
10:06 pm
closer look at the numbers as well as some advice from local experts grant. that's right. it's one thing can hear about what cases are doing. but, you know, you get a visual and helps put it in perspective, not what we want to see. this is a new graph from the state health see the past 8 weeks. right. the number of new cases. >> and it was going down, down, down, down, down. but. >> you know, plateau is and then just it is a little bit rising again. not good. california officials now reporting about 6,000 new cases a day. that's up from about 5,000 cases a day. just a few weeks ago and experts say they're concerned these numbers are changing, especially because the holidays right around the corner. people are going to be gathering inside as it gets colder as well. everybody is going to be spending more time indoors, just easier for the virus to spread. >> we know what happened 10 days after thanksgiving last year and then within a few weeks after that christmas.
10:07 pm
all the parties around the holidays, including new year's and that's what's very disconcerting. >> and so are also rising across the state but not to the same degree we saw last year again when there was no vaccine at this point last year, experts say, yeah, the moderna pfizer, the jj. they all help but that too is complicated because of the issue of waning immunity. a recent independent study showed the effectiveness of the original shots could go down over a period of about 6 months. >> booster doses, fix waning immunity. at least for multiple months that we've given out not nearly as many boosters as we need to. i think morning's number something like 3.4 million. i can tell you there. 5.7 million people 65 and older in california. you know, just on that basis, it needs to go up. >> on that note, pfizer has officially now asked the fda to authorize its covid booster for everyone 18 and older

currently, it's vaccine along with moderna's are only available as boosters for people 65 and older and folks who have compromised immune systems are people who are at high risk of contracting the virus based on where they work or live. pfizer claims its new study shows its booster can restore protection against the virus to nearly 96%. and as for what to do about the upcoming holiday gatherings. well, experts say the best thing you can do is get vaccinated and hold events outdoors if possible. we've heard about that, but they also recommend having family groups separated at different tables, especially if you're inside so you don't have too many households interacting so closely together. there is still time before we face the brunt of a potential winter surge here just early november and can up. and that's why experts say the main focus now is to try to get those kids who recently became eligible vaccinated the 5 to 11 year-olds and also, you know,
10:09 pm
folks 65 and older and folks who are at higher risk, make sure they get the booster so that should they get a breakthrough they will have a better outcome in all likelihood. it will also reduce the chances. they get a breakthrough case. so that's where we stand now. you the way these things go. you would think that pfizer's vaccine is going to be approved as a booster for yeah, we're just not there yet. in the process. yeah. all right. grant, thank you. you bet. today bay area congresswoman anna eshoo held a town hall with doctor anthony fauci to address the public's concerns about the covid pandemic. >> the vaccines and other health issues coming up tonight at 1030, which covid safety protocols. he says he thinks won't be going away anytime soon. >> kron four's your local election headquarters and it is now official san francisco district attorney jason will face a recall election next 2 year. the department of elections has certified the

10:39 pm
outside. now the big concern is when we might see some more rain now. things are going to change a bit as high pressure starts to build in over the next couple of days here that ridge really takes over. you see the jet stream sending all that moisture well to the north up in the pacific northwest. california remains on the dry side and probably warmer temperatures than normal as we head into the weekend to probably some 70's going to get a pop up. but look, as we get into sunday. boy, that ridge really strengthens saying all that rain really all the way up into canada. fact, it looks like once this ridge moves on through maybe a slight chance of showers next tuesday, but not much that system kind of falls apart and so we're what we're left with is a nice drying period. now we're just keeping our fingers crossed. hopefully that doesn't last all that long right now stays dry through the weekend. temperatures running in the 70's, cooling down on tuesday, wednesday and thursday of next week and that slight chance of showers. but really i think the next best chance of any significant rain is right around thanksgiving. thank and i thank you, >> well, now to the peninsula where there has been a

10:41 pm
>> so after years of trying nonlethal means of keeping the numbers down. the city council voted unanimously in favor of a mitigation plan that could allow for lethal methods, not all residents are happy about this idea. well, i the non lethal methods, the best. >> and i don't agree with them. have the resort to killing entities even though the geese are here year round. they are protected by migratory bird treaty act. so officials would have to apply for a federal permit to trap and kill some of the birds. if granted the permit could last up to one year with the lethal methods being used alongside nonlethal ones. >> until those long-term methods such as keeping eggs from hatching. >> take hold its not about eradicating them or in in aiding them. it's about controlling and managing the population. and managing the problem another nonlethal met that they're going to try out as a pilot program funding the geese with a non harmful chemical. >> meant to irritate the birds
