8:02 am
swartzberg acknowledges napa county's hospital system is smaller than most in the bay area. but the lack of beds and the omicron variant's threat to health care workers could be a red flag for the rest of the region. even if you've got plenty of icu beds open. even if you got plenty leaders, if you don't have health care workers to take care of the patients in those beds. you know, care for most infections from the omicron variant have been reported as being less severe. but doctor swartzberg says that does not mean patients will stop coming into hospitals. studies have shown the variant is also highly transmissible as the cases continue to climb health experts continue to preach prevention has the most important step to take there's no perfect way to do this field. perfect way to make sure you're not going affect somebody has to is to become her just the road to the human beings. but we want to have a functional society that way we need a functional society reporting in napa county, dan thorn kron 4 news.
8:03 am
>> happening right now. a covid outbreak among students at stanford. in fact, the university says more than a 100 students have tested positive in the last few days. kron 4. sarah stinson live for us at the campus there with the exact number and what they're doing about it. good morning, sarah. >> james stanford just updated its numbers online a 175 students have tested positive for coronavirus since returning from winter break. 100 staff members have tested positive, you know, this did the university here they use rapid antigen tests. they wanted to get results quickly and figure out what they were working with. get those students into isolation into the housing here. and so in the meantime, they're continuing to do testing as more students come back because they're actually doing remote learning for the first 2 weeks of this winter quarter because they knew there would be this surge after the holidays. campus officials say
8:04 am
as of yesterday afternoon, all of those students who tested positive are in isolation, most of them tested positive with rapid tests over the weekend and the others were on campus over break-in tested before the weekend. at least 95% of those who tested with the university have been fully vaccinated. as you said, classes stanford their online right now. they'll continue to do that for 2 weeks. students will resume in-person classes the tuesday after martin luther king junior day. that's january. 18th students are being asked to take a covid-19 test before being back on campus in going around campus. this post holiday outbreak is causing a spike in the university's positive. positivity rate in the last 7 days. stanford is strongly encouraging students to get the covid booster before returning to campus for the winter quarter. for those in person classes. and that's because eligible students are actually required to show proof of that booster shot by january 31st, campus. health
8:05 am
officials believe they're going to see more positive cases as more students return. i'm sure there's a lot of students decided, well, i'll just stay put until after the online classes stops and a half to go back in-person. so we could see another surge here on campus. and then hopefully we see cases kind of slow down for now reporting live at stanford. sarah stinson, back to you. >> all right. thank you very much, sara. meanwhile, we have some new cdc guidelines. now that could be changing going forward yet again for people that are heading back to work or school. the expectation from the secretary of education is that students will still be allowed to return to in-person learning. that's the latest thinking anyway, even though thousands of schools across the country are choosing distance learning other plan to use tests to return policy, meaning you have to test negative to come back to campus. and this comes as there is now more confusion over quarantine recommendations last week. you may remember the cdc lowered isolation times for asymptomatic infections from 10 days to just 5 days and
8:06 am
said that those who contract covid don't have to test again after isolating well, now there are new reports that the agency may revisit those guidelines yet again. >> we opted not to have the rapid tests for isolation we actually don't know how a rapid test performed and how well they predict whether your transmissible during the end of disease. i myself feel that that's a reasonable thing to do. >> i believe that the cdc soon will be coming out with more clarification of that since it obviously has generated a number of questions about at that five-day period should you or should you not be testing. people. >> meantime, the biden administration says that the definition of fully vaccinated may soon change to include needing a booster shot as well. this morning we're hearing from local infectious disease experts about the fda's decision to authorize a 3rd dose of pfizer vaccine for children between 1215 years old. we first broke the story yesterday morning right here
8:07 am
on the kron 00:00am morning news. the decision was made after researchers in israel found no new cases of heart inflammation, which is a condition that us experts have been monitoring as a potential rare side effect. the agency is also shortening the wait time for boosters from 5 months, our to 5 months after the primary vaccine rather than the original 6 months. >> with pediatric hospitalizations op it makes sense to try and protect as many people as possible if not people get infected at the same time. a lot of we're seeing in unity. what are you going to see is that we'll get reprieve because it's like having a giant force field. >> yeah. the fda also authorized a 3rd shot for children between 5.11 who have weak immune systems. the cdc could make a final decision on that later this week. happening today, san mateo county is going to be reopening a booster in covid vaccine clinic for people, ages 12. and up. it will take place at the san mateo county event center starting at noon
8:08 am
and it will be open tuesdays through saturdays. meanwhile, happening today, the west contra costa unified school district is opening 3 new testing sites for students and staff. the district says that it has already distributed about 15,000 testing kits to students and their families. but school officials say the drive-thru pickup stations for tests is just one step of several that they're taking to try and keep students and staff safe and trying to slow the spread of the virus. you can find all the locations for the new testing sites on our website. kron 4 dot com covid testing, by the way, remains limited throughout the bay area offers taylor second reports that in san francisco testing appointments are quickly filling up and city leaders are blaming a lack of supply. >> available covid testing appointments are few and far between in san francisco as families scramble to get tested after the holidays. well, it's not required. all students are also encouraged to get tested before returning to school. however, judging by comments online and e-mails.
8:09 am
we've received some still were unable to find available testing options in time when trying to schedule an appointment online through the city's website. you'll even be greeted by this message saying the city is experiencing high demand city supervisor asha says the issue isn't the number of testing sites open. but instead a shortage in the supply chain. we have a lot of really good accessibility. >> the problem is the the infrastructure, the actual tests themselves. it's a supply chain thing that has caused some delays. suffice says the shortage in testing kits has for several city testing sites to stop taking walk ins over the last few days in some places where there's walk-ups and appointments available or no appointments available are necessary and they basically reached passing fad to turn people away. i think there's been a major surge in the amount of people that need testing and so it's put a strain on the system overall. as for those who have been able to get tested through a
8:10 am
walk-in appointment. many also had to test their patients, you know, had a number of people call in the said they had to wait in line for about an hour over in the bayview fred, a testing site there. that's where i went last week i went to the bayview opera house after going to a couple locations that either had reached capacity. and i think that's that's essentially where we're suffice as the city is waiting to receive test kits from the state to distribute a public school students staff and families. but expects to have been at some point later this week. >> in the meantime, as we wait for more tests become available going back to the basics wearing a mask socially distancing getting vaccinated and boosted will be important to prevent a continued surge and taylor reporting kron 4 news. >> in san francisco. muni says that you might see longer wait times for buses or trains this morning tweeting out that they're experiencing a high level of omicron cases. and as a result, staff has been forced to stay at home from work so they can quarantine. they also remind people that masks are required on buses and trains to make sure you
