5:00 am
>> from the area's local news station. you're watching the kron. 4 morning news at >> good morning, everybody. starting off the 05:00am hour with a check of stormtracker for today's the day that rain has been promising. rain has been promising that we have rain coming our way. and we certainly see that just offshore. the storm off the coast for now, but it will arrive in earnest later on this morning. thank evers ray delivers the rain doesn't and we this, john and i know you just got james and reyna. >> but we've got a friday with rain in store like james said. >> that's pretty much some good news about the rest of the weekend, right? the rest of the weekend. we are going to be a lot sunnier. >> and right here in the bay area. but it's just a morning you've got to get through. so you're also seeing some overnight fog that stuck around for the early morning hours. a few drizzles out there. so some of our roadways are slick and wet at this hour, even though we're still
5:01 am
tracking that storm that supposed to arrive specifically to the north bay a little bit before 07:00am. so we're keeping a close eye on that. you can see that's just off to the north here. but that'll make its way into the bay area very shortly. it will stick around for most of the morning and then also in the sierras, expect to see some snow up there. if you're traveling, take some chains with you. but tomorrow and saturday and sunday will be nice days. looking at your current temperatures outside cooler today than we were yesterday. so low 50's 40's across the map. santa rosa, 50 49 up in napa san jose low 50's down there. palo alto in half moon bay, all in the mid-fifties. james. we'll send it over to you. ok, rain a thank you. a quick check of the drive and there's whole lot going on. still nice and light here at the bay bridge toll plaza. >> traffic on westbound 80 moving. well, no issues to report as you head into san francisco, at least cross that bridge. we're also looking at pretty decent conditions on the san mateo bridge as we head to the south here and check the right on westbound
5:02 am
92. i think we have that bridge coming up there it is. looks pretty good. the right hand side. that is your westbound commute direction. and as you can see, nothing slowing you down as you make your way out toward the peninsula this morning. we're also looking at your west bound 5.80, commute picking it up here at richmond, sandra fell bridge toll plaza, a few headlights, but that's about it. you've got hardly any company as you make your way across the span into the north bay. and for those already, there looks like the golden gate bridge is being reconfigured for the morning commute. the zipper truck is out there. not that there's much need for at the moment. we've only got a few cars making their way southbound. i want to one into san francisco, more weather and traffic checks in a bit. let's get back to the news and happening today in the east bay. we have some teachers in oakland planning a sick out to bring attention to covid safety concerns. the oakland unified school district has already sent a notice to parents last night about a possible sickout. it's not sanctioned by the teachers union. so it's unclear if educators at other schools will be participating. but the
5:03 am
teachers behind the sick out have a list of demands for the district they want. and 95 and kn 95 masks. they want weekly testing. they want covid leave and they won't have the filters in larger rooms. >> we would love to be in in person just as much as everyone else wants us to be. but the fact of the matter is, our campuses are safe right now. we need some time too. get the resources that we on campus in order make it safe. >> the district plans to keep schools open for students today. the district also says the covid protocols are in place and that hepa filters have been distributed to every classroom and regular testing is available to all students and staff. >> in san francisco, teachers want the district to do more there as well to protect students and teachers from covid. there were hundreds of teachers that staged a sickout. they're trying to bring attention to that.
5:04 am
james, sarah stinson has become our covid have says san francisco us live from the city with the update. good morning, sarah. >> how many years? so we've been doing lost track, but here we are. it is fully affecting our poor school districts across the state and right here in the bay area, san francisco spent hours at the negotiating at the bargaining table. the union and the school district trying to figure out an agreement on covid safety precautions. unfortunately, they did not meet in agreement and this is after over 600 plus teachers called out sick yesterday. some of them due to the sickout and others are actually sick with covid or have symptoms or been exposed. a spokesperson says there's a little more than that, that 600 plus number as a little more than double the daily average of sick calls before the pandemic. so that gives you an idea of just how
5:05 am
intense this omicron spread is affecting the district. the teachers union is asking for this. they're asking for an extension of their supplemental paid sick leave and that would include 10 days of sick leave for all covid-related illnesses and that they want the district to provide to n 95 and kn 95 mask. >> for every student and employee each day and the district. they want them to can conduct weekly covid testing for all students and staff at every district work site. and so this is what the district is offering say. they want this in the district comebacks comes back with what they can offer and this is what they said. they can offer 5 days instead of 10 days of paid sick leave for covid blaming the state for cutting funding for the additional days they provided last year as well as a efforts to maintain supply for high quality masks for employees. only and to make weekly covid testing available to all students and staff, a different district site like they want. the union president posted a video after negotiations on twitter. we
5:06 am
have a clip from that. then you'll hear from a spokesperson with the district. >> forcing the school district's lack of urgency to develop a plan for handling the latest surge of covid-19. continued at the bargaining table. the district is trying to cut covid sickly from fy 10 to 5 days. and now needs a week to calculate the numbers for the 10 days. that's unacceptable. we also have to hold the line to keep students included in the mass distribution because as if usc proposed only to give up asked a staff that we were cool with that. finally, we continue to advocate for testing to be available every student school site. and it is a big, you know, distribution plan. we have over 119 schools in the district. so we're mobilizing as quickly as we can to get those tests to school so they can distribute them to students and families. >> the superintendent did say earlier this week they just got that shipment of rapid tests from the state and are working to distribute them. like you just heard from the
5:07 am
spokesperson. teachers say this is too little too late and they are not happy with how negotiations ended last night. >> because the district said, ok, we didn't come to an agreement. let's meet next thursday. meanwhile, teachers are saying this is happening now. i'm teaching right now. so they want something to happen immediately. not next thursday. so we'll have to see how this progresses. will they continue due to a sick out? will they do some kind of strike? we'll have to see. back to you guys in studio. boy, it's quite a balancing act. >> all right. thanks a lot. and we see the similar strains in all the different 143 teachers in the mountain view. mount diablo district. they were absent from school yesterday. the district says that covid and the ongoing teacher shortage are to blame. despite those challenges, the superintendent says that students still get the lessons that they needed from other. and they say credentialed staff members who stepped in.
5:08 am
and the superintendent expects to continue to see this high number of staff absences in the near future. they do not anticipate having to close the schools because of the staffing shortages, the union, the teachers union and the district are in contract negotiations. again, we're seeing this all over the bay area, a union for the teacher says that the 2 sides have hit a wall and they say a strike is possible. so if you listen to the teachers, not so optimistic. and there's a warning for people have used public transportation, both ac transit and muni telling riders expect delays covid again is to blame because they've got some cases among employees earlier in the week. the sfmta tweeted out the warning to riders as well saying that a lot of employees have had to stay home and quarantine. so its, you know, its mass transit on the roads.
5:09 am
it's obviously mass transit in the skies we've been seeing. wow, those delays and everything. cancellations are piling up. another effect, a surge in covid in bay area we are seeing that more and more. james. yeah, crawford's amanda hari check in with officials both in the east bay and south bay to find out just how their hospital systems are. >> holding up to the search. >> well, we have our icu defense going up just like every other county after more positive covid cases comes more hospitalization. but doctor on mall, the director of healthcare preparedness for santa clara county says it's not currently as high as it was in december of 2020, but given what we're seeing in terms of community transmission, in teoms of case numbers are monitoring the situation, very toasty. he says omicron does seem to cause less severe illness with a higher number of people being infected. it is likely more people will end up in the hospital and possibly the icu.
5:10 am
>> doctor kemal says they're prepared for that. we work in hospitals regularly to make sure that they do everything they can that contingency planning. and that building staff from other areas that necessary, according to ca dot gov. >> the number of positive patients in the icu has increased in contra costa county from just 7 on december. 21st to 25 on january 5th chief medical officer for john muir health russell rodriguez says their icu numbers have been very manageable, but they're struggling in other areas. many staff members are out sick with covid or other seasonal illnesses and their emergency department is bombarded with covid patients just surging the the people that are >> really coming in because they can't get has they're concerned because they, you know, symptoms, they want to know if they have covid or not. he says it's putting a strain on the department. >> he says protest go to a community testing center. he says that her symptoms become
5:11 am
more severe, then go to the emergency department. if you are having shortness of breath, chest pain. >> just rapidly worsening symptoms. high fevers and things like that. then you should see care either the risk for urgent care. both health officials encourage people to take all the health precautions they can masking distancing vaccinations and boosters amanda hari kron. 4 news. you know, it's really out of hand is testing problem. get your hands on the tests. hard to find in the bay area. >> either if look at the drug store or if you're trying to get the point, yeah, either way here. coming up short in a lot of cases and now bay area, law enforcement officials are warning. >> about covid testing scams because when people become desperate scam artists come out to try and dupe them. crawford's camila barco live in san francisco with what you need to know. good morning. camila. >> good morning, guys. yeah, there's never been a bigger need for these at-home covid test kits. and now like you guys said, if you got to the
