7:07 am
>> yes, some teachers are very frustrated with how the district you know, went about dealing with this major surge that we're still experiencing with omicron cases in the city and in the bay area, really. and they're so frustrated because they want more accessibility to testing more accessibility to mass and they had said enough is enough. we're going to hold a sickout. some teachers are are participating. there's actually a petition online and there's about 500 plus signatures on that to participate in this sick out. and so that's happening today. and that's on top of what happened yesterday, which was over 600 teachers calling out sick, not because of a sick out, but because they actually had symptoms or had some exposure. so they stayed home. and that means the district had to call in subs for 600 plus teachers. it was hard to keep those schools open yesterday. we'll see what happens today with that on top
7:08 am
of the sick out teachers. as i said, they want to be provided with daily disposable kn 95 95 masks for all staff and and all students. they also want. >> weekly free testing and they want it to be more accessible. they want free rapid testing to be available as well. and the continuation of 10 day paid sick leave for staff due to covid or if they have to get the vaccination. the union gathered at the district building yesterday and they actually have support for their demands from the school board. president. >> it's up to us. the does not require a negative test for adults or children to return to school buildings yet. and does not have a vaccine mandate for poster mandate for adults. >> with students who don't have the necessary people and supplies we needed in order to safely learn anyone who knows teaching know these are not environment conducive to learning. >> the superintendent responded with this statement saying they return from winter break. they were encouraged
7:09 am
all of everybody to get tested. set up new testing sites and sent out numerous ways to get tested for prior to school. reopening that this week. the superintendent says they just got a shipment of rapid tests from the state and those will be made available this week. and next week, they also have mask that will be handed out this week as well. says the superintendent. will that be enough, though? we'll have to see how many people do participate in this sick out today and how it affects the schools as they try to stay open for the students. it's only thursday got 2 days left in the week and obviously they're very going to keep this. this is a thing going because of how many people are sick and how many people are frustrated. >> i hear you say keep this thing like it's really the first week of the new year. sara feels like 2021 all over again and that engine engine and it's chugging its their now working it. >> it's every industry, though, it's every visit to

me. it's their line industry. yeah. yeah. we've got more on that too as we go throughout the morning. thanks, sarah. yeah. well, as san francisco teachers are struggling with testing over in the east bay, the west contra costa unified school district announces that it's going to be closing all of its campuses tomorrow and next monday because of >> the covid surge during the 2 days. all of the school campuses within the district are going to undergo a deep cleaning. the move comes after kron. 4 learned that the doors at martin luther king junior elementary school in richmond were closed after a covid-19 outbreak at that school. so starting next week, teachers and staff members in the district will be required to wear kn 95 medical masks while at work and before returning to classes. next tuesday, students and staff are again encouraged to get tested once again. >> and today in the east bay, thousands of free covid tests are going to be handed out to students in the dublin unified school district. yes, part of an effort to encourage students there to get tested before they come back to classes next week. it's the story the kron four's will tran has been following for us live in dublin this morning. hard to get tested. if you
7:11 am
can't get a test. well. >> you know, hard for a lot of people to get their hands on those tests. not hard when you're the dublin unified school district, your supplier, it's the state and they are delivering. they said last week that they would get their hands on 13,000 tests. and that's exactly what they have this morning. so we're about 90 minutes away from distribution. i met one of those sites and i'll tell you all about that. just a few moments. the reason why they're doing this and like the other districts, many of them in california, a crime. they want to make sure that the staff and the students are safe before they return on monday. they're encouraging you not demanding that you prove and negative tests, but they're encouraging parents to test their kids 3 days out from returning to campus. and then the day that their return on campus try to do it after they come back from school just to see if they're negative or positive. and of course, if you come down on the crime to get yourself checked out and quarantine as
7:12 am
