5:02 am
of course, this is what they want you to do. stay home. at least 5 days, day one begins the day. you test positive isolation can end after 5 days of symptoms are not present or symptoms are resolving staff and students must present a negative test result or be given a rapid antigen test upon arrival back to school or work. if your staff member, the recommendation is to test with a rapid antigen tests and not a pcr test. if you're unable to test are choosing not to test and sometimes are not present. are resolving >> isolation can. and after 10 and if it's favors, present isolation has to continue. that is definitely key. now, the senate to foster city district is offering free tests. they've got several locations and today the changes each day it will be at sunny brae elementary school. so good to know starts at 12 30. if you need to get that test a few the last couple of days because these are these to cases have been going on. so if you know, you've been exposed, can go get that test
5:03 am
today and then move forward rain and they do have that holiday weekend coming up. so i wonder if they'll use some of those days. 2 of the nice elation runing that holiday is as many of other people have thrown their previous holidays because of covid. now back to rein in rising era. a lot of parents just trying to get ready and keep everybody safe. >> thanks for that report. sarah. >> well, in oakland, the oakland school for the arts, they're going to close this week. in a statement on the school's website, the school says in part to do a staff shortage is a result of quarantines. we're unable to continue to provide person to person instruction to students and we need to institute emergency school closure for the remainder of this week. now the school says that because of the changes to state laws, they're not allowed to offer remote learning teachers are going to be posting work for students to do online during the closure. the school plans to reopen next week. happening today, students in the hayward unified school district are going to have their first day
5:04 am
of virtual learning. yesterday the students are asked to work independently today. they're going to be the first day of classes on zoom for them. this comes after at least 117 staff members tested positive for covid in the past few days. well, for students who cannot work remotely, there are going to be in person learning hubs. those locations are listed on your screen. there. students are going to be working in open spaces such as gyms or libraries. these learning hubs are open from 8.30, this morning until 12, 30. this afternoon. classes are resuming today in the west contra costa county school district. the district closed all the schools last friday and yesterday to clean and sanitize the facilities. the district is also required employees and students to take covid test monday and report the results before school today. this is because a large number of staff absences and an increasing number of covid cases in the school district and also starting today, all staff members are going to be

5:06 am
schools without people who regularly do this, but because of staffing shortages covid-19 people quarantining at home, they can't possibly maintain the level and possibly right now might not be able to do it as we speak. and that's why they're turning to the parents to do this. we're talking doing covid testing. i'm sure maybe just filling out some paperwork classroom support recess to duty, possibly taking attendance, custodial duties, the things that they need to make sure that the good schools, the classrooms, that recess areas arc nice and clean for the kids to be inside the classrooms. so why they're doing this when all the other schools, a lot of them are either doing hybrid with online learning or classrooms or altogether online, learning. well in palo alto, the district believes that the kids learn a lot better when they're face to face with miss harvey as opposed to being at home online. and it appears that

5:10 am
help each other. and we need everybody understand that our industry is is really suffering. we had to make the decision to close this morning as we just didn't have a kitchen staff available. thomas recommends checking the restaurant's social media page to see if they're open. before you go as things can change day by day. >> one way you can support your favorite restaurant is by buying a gift card above all else have patience as businesses are trying to just get through all of this. the rising number of hospitalizations in the bay area means local hospitals now have to decide between which patients to care for as they begin to spin or either postpone elective surgeries, pushing back those non-emergency surgeries like a knee or hip replacement, hospitals can free up staff and keep attention to those well needed immediately. but some warn it could lead to long-term health consequences. >> so sometimes, you know, so he comes into the emergency department, for example, and they you know, serious
5:11 am
infection or a problem with their intestines where, you know, they could were sent in a very short period of time and they need surgery in order to deal with that. those are cases we really want to have the capacity to manage. >> well, the state health department has not issued an official order, but officials say they are evaluating the situation for now. they're leaving it up to hospital teams to look at the elective surgeries on a case by case basis throughout the day to decide which are necessary. patients should be ready to see their appointments postponed if it can be. still ahead on the kron 4 morning news, president joe biden is trying to win the support of >> more lawmakers in georgia while the extra support is necessary to get voting rights legislation in the senate. plus, the bay area county put a ban on large gatherings. why they say it is better if everyone just stays home as much as possible. and the l so real police department lost a fellow officer going to tell pyou how it happened after the pyou how it happened after the break.
