6:00 am
the week. i get what? it looks pretty good outside. i mean, aside from the temperatures nice and clear it's a little cold. want to bundle the kids up as they head off to school today is sunday morning cleary and cold for we traded in yesterday's dense fog advisories. for some 40's this morning at least that means it will be a clear driving to work for most of us. there's still a couple of patches of fog, though, that i don't want to forget about as far as conditions go, otherwise just keep the jackets on hand. your view with the golden gate bridge is nice and clear but temperatures out there are really chilly around santa rosa couple pockets in the south bay as well as the inland east bay. we do have some low cloud cover and fog to watch out for and we are seeing that, especially true out to the central valley were 99 i 5 or blocked out by some very low visibility all over again. now current temperatures are in the 40's 50's. most of us down in the 40's this morning, though, alameda hanging on to the low 50's at 53 petaluma at 45 in santa rosa, a chilly 43 reyna.
6:01 am
john, thank you for that. so i am seen reports of fog along the richmond sandra fell bridge. i was traveling. >> along the bay bridge this morning i ran into some fog. so you definitely want to be mindful of that as you're traveling a little under 30 minutes and then turn the metering lights on the air at the bay bridge. let's head over look at the san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula drive times a little under 14 minutes to make that commute. the richmond sandra fell bridge also seen reports of fog. so little under 8 minutes but definitely take it slow and we'll start with a look in the south bay. no major accidents or incidents along 2 8085 or to 37 darya. james, back to you. 6 oh, one. and you know what will tran might have the magic touch maybe because when we went on the air this morning. there was a wrangle between the uc system of electorate and their lectures and. >> now some magical solution. yeah. the strike that was looming potentially called off has a deal. been. >> reached. let's find out. joining us live at uc berkeley is kron four's professor tran with today's lecture. good
6:02 am
morning. well. >> yes. so the exam is back on meeting the professors will be teaching. yes, the strike was scheduled for today and tomorrow. but they burned the midnight oil worked in the overnight hours. and we just learned about 5 minutes ago that they have called off the strike and we're still trying to reach out to the union members. but on the surface chains and area. this being early. there's a good chance that possibly the professors will be inside the classrooms today. teaching the thousands of students within the uc system. there are about 6500 lecturers and a lecture is a little bit different than a tenured professor is because they are working towards that. and but they do about a 3rd of the teaching within the uc system. so that obviously they are part of the backbone. they have been very upset over the past 20 months over a 2 things that they really wanted to hammer out was the paid family
6:03 am
leave. they got that. not as much as they were hoping for. but they definitely got 4 weeks of paid family leave. they were looking for 8 weeks, but they got 4 weeks 100% as far as the lectures and they will have preferential hiring over new hires. so if you're within the system, you get reviewed every year. and then if they you're good to go, you get reviewed again and again. >> and with every review and every good to go, so to speak. you get a pay raise. so bottom line is a lot of students were very nervous about this. of course, because they want their education. they paid so much money for tuition at looks like crisis averted and you will be inside the classrooms today. we'll find out for sure. but again, it speaks 6 o'clock. and we just found out about 5 minutes ago and the fact that they sent us information as quickly as they could more than likely get your syllabus get your laptop, get whatever you need. because class is back on. >> we were joking about your
6:04 am
your outfit with the sweater. well, i happen to for i've loved the look. and i i i don't know that people understand a lot of times you don't know what story you're going on. so did you know that you're doing a story about professors today and you put it on. are you just trying look because i really >> you know, hear the true story sometimes accidents happen. this was sitting in my on the floor. i had about a few years. i forgot. i had it and i was sitting around a and being the person that i don't like waste. you pay you might as well use it. so it always carry a worked out. i do feel like a professor. sneak in there and go. haha got to be this fall. looking over fletcher shoulder it just worked out today and it's a perfect look. >> thank you, professor. >> all right. well, hopefully they can also find a resolution in the east bay too, because we have hundreds of employees for the hayward unified school district. they're planning to rally and protest. the district's plan
6:05 am
to close schools last month we told you about the district's announcement that they were going to closing upwards of 8 schools in order to address a budget shortfall. well, teachers and community members. they've gotten together and they're asking the district now to hold off on that until they've had a chance to look at some other possible solutions. they also want to make sure that there's a plan to help the studlnts who are going to be forced to change schools. today's rally is set for 4 o'clock. it will be at birchfield park the protesters and plan to march on to the district offices to make their voices heard. also happening today we've got san mateo county workers. they're going to be hitting the picket line as well over wages. the protest will include some health care professionals, social workers and engineers. they say they've been without a contract now for about 2 months and that the offer of a one percent wage increase is insulting to them. the strike is set to last all day. it's not clear if county services will be impacted. but we'll let you know. >> 6. '05, and we finally
6:06 am

6:07 am
they were going to retire. and so now, you know, they're left with this. we haven't heard back about any details about this break in. we're wondering if we'll see video, you know, maybe they have surveillance video and we'll get that. in fact, this morning we have the surveillance video that we were waiting for. >> in the smash and grab at the diamond store in concord and look at this now. take a good look. it's hard to see. but you know, maybe somebody will make up these rappers. there were 9 of them. >> asked and you can see they're wearing hoodies and they stormed in around 7 o'clock. it was just before closing. you can see the employees now cleaning up. but they got away with pretty much everything that they wanted. this was on monday night and may even go back to that loop of of the the breaking kuz. if you can see what was so scary about this is there were 9, 9, people that came rushing in their employees in there. >> there were their workers in there. look at could coming in and coming in and it's just
6:08 am
lucky that nothing went wrong and that nobody got hurt. >> well, community led effort in san francisco is helping victims of smash-and-grab robberies and burglaries helping them reunite with their stolen items. dozens of car break-ins happened daily and a lot of that stolen luggage and the items being dumped across the bay in the richmond district and now neighbors are using social media apps like nextdoor to post about stolen items that they found one man says he's already helped 50 tourists get some of their things back. and most recently he was able to help a group over the weekend. >> the least we can do is neighbors is, you know, help the poor tourists come here on their vacations and we robbed them the least we can do is is you know, we're walking down the street and this is happening in our neighborhood and lots of other neighborhoods is at least you know, scoop up that you know, the sidewalks littered with with with stolen luggage and trying to figure out how to get back to him.

6:16 am
new orleans in 1960. she was just 6 years old. she was fighting to integrate the school even through all the hate. she lived a few blocks from the school. so it made sense to go there. but it was hard decision. he was going to go there because of how much he should receive. she did so and she would walk to school. people would be yelling racial slurs at her and she kept fighting on. so this class of 5th graders in south san francisco. they were so moved by her. one student asked the teacher is there data on a ruby and unfortunately there was not so this class got to work. they started a petition to establish one took that to the school board. it was passed unanimously to make november 14th the day for ruby bridges. from there. a couple school starting to fall through the state, but they need to make it official. and senator josh becker agreed carrying a resolution through senate to make it official. now, today is the day the for statewide walker ruby bridges. it starts at 7 30 here in south san francisco. they're going to be walking from this downtown area to their respective schools is about
6:17 am
8,000 students within the school district. and this is just the start of something beautiful and it's great that they'll be doing this for decades and honoring ruby bridges just that 6 year-old girl fighting in bravery so much bravery and now people are still honoring her today. some send it back to you at 7.30. we'll bring it to you live in. we'll be checking in with the student who inquired about it first in 20 17th and we kind of all looking forward to it. thank you very receive the students started by inquiring students started by we learn a lot from kids who are so much braver. >> in ways i found they lead the way all right. it is 6.17. let's get over to the weather center. we've got john with your chilly wednesday morning forecast now. good morning, john. yeah, definitely cold out there, guys as much as 10 degrees cooler than at the same point yesterday. so. >> whatever you did yesterday maybe throw on that extra layers. you're venturing out today just for good measure

6:19 am
tomorrow will remain pretty similar to today a little bit more cloud cover showers, arriving late in the evening and a chance of a few sprinkles on friday, saturday and sunday. we remain dry as we will all the way through the thanksgiving holiday next thursday. brain todd, thank you for that couple access to tell you about. we have one on one on one along 8.80, just west, a street southbound. >> so we are starting to see a slight delay there. if you're traveling from san leandro down to milpitas. it'll take you almost 30 minutes because of that delay we're seeing there. also in south san francisco, north about one to one at least are point boulevard not seen a delay along one o one. but 82 would be a good alternate runs just adjacent to that heading into the city right now. little under 14 minutes for your drive time. they remember said we saw pockets. i saw pockets of fog personally traveling into the city this morning. the san mateo bridge a little under 14 minutes seen reports along the richmond center fell bridge a fog. so a foggy morning in certain areas. the

6:34 am
nurses, doctors or trained professionals. mayor london breed. introduced legislation to purchase this building on the corner of erie and hyde street. the 8,000 square foot building would cost 6.3 million dollars and the mayor's goal is set to open the site as early as spring of next year. this is where people with substance abuse issues would go to safely consume in front of medical professionals. >> and those are the health care workers that are equipped with marchand and medication to prevent those people from overdosing mayor london breed's team says, quote, safe consumption site is a health driven harm reduction tool that will save lives and help us connect more people to treatment and services. but is it is only one part of a broader strategy to address the overdose crisis facing our city state senator scott wiener is a supporter of the site. he says these venues offer clean needles drug testing. kids and give people options to get on the right path to sobriety. we're also
6:35 am
introduced legislation late last year to make safe consumption sites legal under his senate bill. the site would be first implemented here in san francisco, oakland and los angeles. but leaders. bill is set to be heard in the state assembly health committee sometime early next year. the senator applauded breeds proposed legislation. he says more san franciscans died of overdoses in 2020. then the dead of covid-19. but at this time the next thing bree needs to do is get the approval from the board of supervisors to finalize the purchase of that building. she says that she also plans to contact state and federal government authorities because at this time those safe consumption sites are illegal under federal law darya james, back to you. camila, thank you very much. >> 6.35 governor newsome is warning that the we could be in for a winter surge of covid. he says california is braced for a stress on the healthcare system. if that
6:36 am
happens, he says about a quarter of the state's population is still not vaccinated. the governor visited a vaccine clinic in the central valley and he's continuing to urge people to get their covid shots and boosters ahead of the winter. >> as we enter into a season. past his pro log. we should anticipate increase of cases increase in hospitalizations. >> governor newsom says he understands people's concerns about the vaccines, but he is hoping that those who have yet to get their shot do so as soon as possible. so the transmission rates remain low into the winter. >> well, stanford is reporting more than 2 dozen covid-19 cases among students since november 8, 8 staff and faculty members have also tested positive over the last week over the past 2 months, stanford has seen an average of fewer than 13 positive cases among students. but after conducting 14,000 tests over the last week. that number has doubled the school says the 6 of those students
6:37 am
live in on-campus housing students say, yeah, they're concerned. >> lately has been more of a worry because i'm such like close proximity to people. >> who've tested positive. but i'd like tested basically we've been testing like every day provide about the tests as well. so. >> and the university said in a statement that the students who tested positive have been isolated and those at high risk for exposure have been quarantined. they also say that the university will continue to require surveillance testing for members of the campus community. and we have a better idea now how many children in the bay area are getting the shot in marin county. 30 1% of the nearly 21,000 eligible children have now received the covid vaccine in contra, costa county. it's about half that 16% and that's out of 92,000 eligible children in alameda county where they have about a 137,000 eligible children. they also have about 16% of them vaccinated. and then in san mateo county, their
6:38 am
numbers are roughly 17% and those are the only counties that have released numbers so far. the other say they're still gathering the information needed to make it public. >> see, i can't hold somebody is hand when they get the shot that helps you really squeeze that hand. those of you be ready if you're the hand. there could soon be and actually in fighting the coronavirus because pfizer is asking the fda to authorize its antiviral pill to treat unvaccinated people who get covid kron four's. dan kerman has the details. >> it's a game changer as it gets says, it's a step above up from where we are right now. covid-19 vaccine make pfizer. it's now asking the fda to grant emergency use authorization for paxlovid a pill doctors could prescribe to treat those infected with covid-19 your healthcare professional call in a prescription to walgreens you go to walgreens, you pick up 5 pack. >> course and he start taking it lo and behold, it prevents
6:39 am
