that's where they believe the girl may have been taken according to police. she was driven to los angeles with her boyfriend and 2 other friends and then returned unharmed to her home in vallejo thursday morning. now, even though this appears to have been a hoax. the amber alert that was issued was very real and time and resources were spent looking for the girl and her alleged abductors at this point. it's unclear if any of them will face charges in the north bay. charles clifford kron. 4 news. >> happening now across the bay area. kaiser permanente workers are on the picket lines supporting engineers who are striking to get a better work contract engineers and union members have been on strike for the last 2 months amid contract negotiations, citing alleged unfair labor practices and poor pay in total. it's about 40,000 people on strike. that includes kaiser employees such as mental health professionals nurses of tris pharma says and others all standing with their engineering brothers and sisters.

specifically livermore and even san jose. but allman is looking storm clouds overhead and we are tracking temperatures right now below average in the 50's and 60's looking and feeling a lot more like winter than fall out there in the bay area. details ahead on your full weekend forecast and a sneak peek of what we can expect on thanksgiving day back to you. just dean. thank bree some. let's go now to the south bay levi stadium is getting a new curfew. the santa clara city council voted on tuesday to allow some week night events. >> to run past the 10:00pm curfew for saw lot about. joining us now live from santa clara with details. >> so rob, how are neighbors in the area feeling about this extension. >> well, they have mixed emotions. justine i'm here on gilmore street. as you can see, we are in the shadow of the levi stadium some neighbors think that the city should have left well enough alone. what others say they've gotten used to the music. in fact, some neighbors tell me they enjoy the fee music and
they don't care how long it lasts. but let's take a look at some video here. and i can remind you that this has been a very controversial issue for several years now here in santa clara until now. the stadium curfew meant the music had to stop at 10:00pm on weekdays and it could run until 11 o'clock on friday and saturday night even though some bands like u 2 and coldplay who recalled ignored it risking fines. some bands like tron stayed away. resulting in lost revenue for the forty-niners which runs the stadium. but now the santa clara city council has voted to allow the forty-niners to host 5 non nfl events annually that can go until 11:00pm, as i said, some neighbors are not happy about all this while others say they the actually gotten used to the music. but santa clara city councilman anthony becker who voted with the majority on a 43 said that they have to change the revenue or change curfew rather, in the name of revenue. he says the stadium is underutilized. let's hear now from councilman backer.
>> the stadium has been very under the under utilized in the last few years since 2017, we have lost a lot of money. millions of dollars from the beginning of the stadium's opening in 2014 until 2000, 17. we were actually making revenue and since then we haven't. and also we've had the pandemic which hasn't made bettors has made matters a little workers. but what i'm hoping is that this opportunity of changing this curfew to 5 times in a year to get some concerts to, you know, good, good, good concerts that we're going actually make some revenue and get our city back on track again because. >> in a statement, the forty-niners said in part this decision will help draw a world class entertainment to santa clara and will not excite those in our community who love live music but will also generate necessary revenue for the city of santa clara local hotels and small businesses. now it's not exactly clear which events might be impacted. the councilman becker tells me that this is a effective immediately and that promoters
are now reaching out to various bands, jharonne telling him to come back and that that they can play a little bit longer now. but back to the issue of the neighbors here. most of the neighbors here say the air traffic, which you've probably heard above me during the report that which flies over the stadium virtually all hours of the day say that is far worse than the music and they wish there would be a curfew on the air traffic. have more on this story coming up on kron 4 news at 5 justine, back to you. thank you, rob. we'll talk to you then. >> here are 3 cvs is announcing that it will close nearly 1000 stores. what's behind the company's move. also, airports are always jam-packed during the holiday. but now there are some unique obstacles facing air travel. this time around. and you remember that high-speed rail that supposed to be connecting northern and southern california apparently it's still on track. we'll get an update on the c ♪ i see trees of green ♪ ♪ red roses too ♪

for your family this holiday season. there's a lot to consider when it comes to kids in the covid vaccine. so joining us now is doctor karen firmer and health to go over some of the questions our viewers are having today. thank you so much for joining us. thank you for having of course. so here's the question. even if kids. it's were able to get vaccinated by the first day of eligibility that that 5 to 11 group. they're barely fully vaccinated by christmas is it's still recommended. that is one shot better than no shot at all. >> absolutely. one shot is definitely better, but even if you're vaccinated, we do know that breakthrough infections can happen. so we all need to continue that. what we've been doing throughout the pandemic, which is being really mindful about washing our hands wearing a mask other people who we don't know their vaccine status. and i think the biggest one for the holidays is you're not feeling well. you definitely want to stay home and stay away from other people and that holds true for kids too.
>> so for also the kids that are under 5 and even be family members or friends that are not vaccinated. what is the best way to protect them against covid as we start to gather more indoors. travel is obviously something people are doing more and more now as we head into thanksgiving and the christmas holiday. >> so the adults that you described don't have a great excuse encourage you to lean on those family members and friends who aren't vaccinated. that's our that's our best safety measure right now. but you're absolutely right that there are people people with a certain rare medical conditions and obviously a young kids who can't be vaccinated. so again, go back to what we know. works with the mask wash your hands don't go around people who are sick. if you're sick. stay home, if you've been exposed to somebody who, you know, has covid or another virus. definitely stay home and get tested. >> so if someone is not vaccinated and you invite them to your holiday table. do think that the host should ask them to wear a mask.
>> so that's a tough one. and i think it's really an individual decision and looking at your tolerance for risk. if you're fully vaccinated and everybody else there is fully vaccinated and better yet if you've been eligible for a booster and you've received a booster and then you might feel less worried about being around an adult who is unvaccinated. i think the best case scenario and your weather forecasters can help us with this. the best case scenario would be whether that's mild enough that people could gather outdoors me know the virus doesn't like air flow. so if you're able to do this outdoors where there's a really good airflow that's absolutely going to help. i think also if if your relative is willing wear a mask except when they're eating and perhaps it ended bigger distance away from everybody else. will they eat. i certainly don't want people to feel ostracized. would highly recommend these get vaccinated. if you can so that
your family doesn't have to go through all of these concerns in these measures. just to enjoy the holidays with you after the rough year and a half that we've all through this pandemic. >> we have a coworker here who's getting to see her brother for thanksgiving. they haven't seen each other in 2 years. so we're feeling a lot of that excitement here in the newsroom. i've some booster questions. fully vaccinated whatever was in january, february, march april of last year. >> do you really need to get a booster. >> well, there's a little bit of controversy around this and the science isn't 100% on this. i've got we're seeing more and more recommendations to do so particularly because we never really achieved the vaccine rates that we needed to to achieve herd immunity and we're hoping that it reduces the breakthrough infections as well. the older you are or the more you may have medical conditions that would put you at risk for covid. the more important that booster is. and also if you
work in health care or other high-risk fields. that booster is really important. what i tell you, if you are my family member and you're a healthy 45 year-old. i would say yeah, i would do. it definitely. absolutely. what about if you're healthy. 41 year-old. 41 i would definitely do it. i would highly recommend it. and adam. >> i can say having had my booster that and that side effects that we all know we're a good thing because it means your immune system knows what it's supposed to do. the side effects portable. >> do you have any other tips for families to stay a safe and saying this holiday season. >> i think my biggest tip is if it's within your budget, i would definitely pick up some of those home self self testing antigen kits and those are really good way. if somebody has an exposure, somebody has symptoms. it's another option of one of your guests is unvaccinated to test them before they join together
with the rest of you. we have tests are perfect. they added data point that will help for sure. so i think if you're able to if it's within your budget. i wish they were less expensive than they are their 20 to $30 for 2 tests. and if you're able to pick one of those at all. the pharmacies have them. costco has them amazon has really good to have on hand, especially if you get together over the holidays and then you've got a call that and jane now has symptoms or you yourself feel a tickle in your their measure security maybe now to pick one up before. everyone gets that call after thanksgiving. absolutely doctor karen firmer and health. thank you so much for joining us. use the chief medical officer and a pediatrician. we appreciate your time. >> thank you. happy thanksgiving. happy thanksgiving lot to be grateful for this time of year. all right. the disney cruise line is soon going to be requiring children 5 and older to be fully vaccinated in order to board their ships. the requirement will go into effect january 13th before
