james, thank you very much, john, to our top story this morning as covid cases continue to surge here in the bay area. one school district is changing its protocols when it comes to contact tracing. >> proper. sara stinson live for us this morning with the latest on that. sarah. >> james, that's right. the san mateo foster city school district says it that they have so many cases that contact tracing is just becoming to be too much work. it's not working for them. and now they're focusing on testing. they're also recommending families in staff, too act as if they have been exposed at this point. of course, moving forward with getting that testing confirming if they are positive or negative. so speaking of 15 100, 15 cases, that's about 101 students testing positive and 14 and members testing positive. usually the salmon to foster city school identifies and
reaches out to close contacts with those have been tested positive in the schools. but due to the spike in omicron cases, the district says testing is the best way to move forward. take a look at isolation guidelines from the district. they sent this in a letter to families. they said stay home for at least 5 days. if you have symptoms 10 day. one, of course, begins the day. you test positive isolation can end after day 5 of symptoms or not president or symptoms are resolving. >> students and staff must present a negative test result or a rapid test upon arrival back to school or back to work. if your staff member the recommendation right now is to get a rapid test rather than a pcr test. if you're unable to test or you don't want to and symptoms are not present resolving meant isolation goes up to 10 days. if you have fever, it's very important. remember that you should stay isolated intel that resolves. now the san mateo foster city
school district. they are offering free testing for staff and students and they have a different school day today. that's at sunny brae elementary school. so it's really important if you have a student in this district and get that test done and then you can proceed from there. >> for now, i'm sarah stinson reporting live. back to you, james. all right. thank you very much, sara. >> in related news in oakland, the oakland schools are for the arts will be closed this week in a statement on the school's website, the school says it in part due to a staff shortage is a result of quarantines. we are unable to continue to provide person to person instruction to students and need to institute an emergency school closure for the remainder of this week. the school says that because of these changes to state laws, they are not allowed to offer remote learning at the moment, teachers will be posting work for students to do online, though, during this closure. the school plans to reopen next week. now happening today, we have students in the hayward unified school district. they're going to have their
first day of virtual learning today. yesterday the students were asked to work independently and today will be the first day of classes on zoom. this comes after at least 7 to 117 staff members tested positive for covid in the past few days for students who cannot work remotely, there will be in person learning hubs available to them. those locations, as you can see, are listed on the screen. students will be working in open spaces like gyms or libraries, and he's learning hubs are going to be open from 8.30, this morning until 12, 30 this afternoon. classes, by the way, are resuming today in the west contra costa county school district. the district closed all of schools last friday and yesterday so they can deep, clean and sanitize all the campuses. the district also required employees and students to take covid tests yesterday and report those results before coming to school today. this is because a large number staff absences and an increased number of covid cases in the school district are causing concerns. and also starting today, all staff members are going to be
required to wear medical grade kn 95 masks while on campus. and another big story this morning, the palo alto unified school district is desperate to have students learn inside the classroom and now they're asking parents to volunteer to help keep the schools open. kron four's will tran live in palo alto with this urgent message for parents will. good morning. >> good morning, james. you see those lights right behind me. the goal is to keep those lights on. they don't want to move the classes from face to face learning, too online, learning believe it's so much better for the kids to get that interaction for their mental health and for their education, which is why on sunday night, the unified school district here in palo alto. they sent it out. get this, james at 9 o'clock on sunday night. and then 12 hours later on monday, at 9 o'clock in the morning, they got at least 300, 60 parents responding saying either they will do it or they're
interested in helping out in now. curious to find out what that number is this morning. they are not going to be teachers inside the classrooms. yes, there could be some staffing problems as far as that is concerned. if that's the case, then they will get substitutes inside. and sometimes, james, they even get administrators. they have a teaching background. they can possibly come in and help as well as far as the volunteers we're talking say covid testing. i'm sure it's for the fill out the paperwork recess duties, cafeteria. there's also things like just monitoring the hallways and then the playgrounds custodial work because even the custodians, obviously they're not immune to covid-19 in coming down with situation where they have to quarantine. so they might be asked to clean up the school to make sure that things are running. james, you and i are the face. our faces, i should say for tv news. among many people are
kron 4, but we know it's the backbone. it's the people work. same deal for the palo t - alto unified school district and they have the enforcement or excuse me the endorsement, i should say from the santa clara county public health officer and the school superintendent for santa clara county. they both say yes, if you possibly can keep those lights on because the kids do a lot better. it's about a 90 minutes away from the school, possibly opening up for the parents to show up. i can't wait to hear their response. why they're doing this. if it was my james, my mom and dad, they probably say i would volunteer to make sure he shuts up in class aa has quite that's why they're on there just to make sure he doesn't get in trouble. >> you it's not just the elementary middle and high school and that's they're dealing obviously with covid outbreak there. stanford now also reporting like 800 new
covid cases as a post holiday covid outbreak continues to grow nearly 500 students and over 300, 50 staff members have tested positive 600 students are isolating right now in student housing winter quarter. classes at stanford are online at the moment. students will reserve to resume in-person classes next tuesday after martin luther king junior day on january. 18th testing is required before returning back to campus. now, university officials believe that the search will continue as more students return to campus for in-person learning. so we'll have to track the numbers and see. if that becomes true. hopefully it's not. but we'll see. meantime, in san francisco, it appears that parents and teachers and city leaders along with school board members are all struggling to get on the same page as far as covid safety. this all comes after more than 600 educators called out sick last week. now the san francisco board of education, president gabriela lopez tweeted that city health officials are refusing to attend an upcoming school board meeting to take questions from the public
officials with the city's department of health confirmed they are not taking up her request. fellow board member alison collins is blaming the district and city leaders for creating what she's called an educational emergency. >> we have schools that are, you know, barely able to function because of lack of staffing. we're trying to fill gaps with parent and we're trying to fill gaps with central office staff. and that's just not. that is just not acceptable. so we know that the demand is very high. we're doing everything we can to get these tests into the hands of students, staff and families and will continue to do that this week. >> well, colin says that there needs to be more available testing sites in the district. the district spokesperson says that 56,000 take home tests that were provided by the state will be sent out to families this week. well, just got more difficult to get a covid test in san francisco. we had several testing sites in the city. well, they're going to close through today because of a nationwide
computer glitch. the city's health department said that this glitch shut down test sites yesterday as well. so here's a list of the affected locations on your screen. officials are asking people to not go to the sites for testing at this point. they're working right now with the vendor to accommodate people who had appointments yesterday trying to get them rescheduled somewhere else. the rapid rise in cases is also taking its toll on businesses. a growing number of restaurant owners say that they're struggling right now to keep their doors open simply because there just aren't enough staff, whether that's due to employees testing positive for being exposed to the virus. laurie thomas with the golden gate restaurant association says the daily stress of not knowing how each day is going to go. well, it isn't just taking a financial toll on business owners. it's also a mental toll as well. >> real emotional stress that manifests in different ways. and we just really need to 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 a restaurant social media page to see if they're open in the first place. things can change day by day by day. so do that. first. and one way you can support your favorite restaurant is by buying a gift card and above all else have patience as businesses try to get through this. the rising number of hospitalizations here in the bay area means that local hospitals now have to decide between which patients to care for as they begin to suspend or postpone elective surgeries by pushing back those non-emergency surgeries like a or hip replacement, hospitals can free up staff to keep attention on those who need it more immediately. but some warn that it could lead to long-term health consequences as well. >> so sometimes, you know, so he comes into the emergency department, for example, and they you know, serious 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. >> yeah, the state health department has 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 ones of elect touch to perform. patients should be ready to see their appointment postponed if it can be. so just understand. it is 7.11. will take a quick break. but still ahead on the kron, 4 morning news, a bay area county put a ban on large gatherings will tell you why they say it's better if everyone stays. >> home as much as possible. and the deadline is coming up for covered. california health insurance plans. why having coverage could benefit you as this pandemic continues? >> and today we are going to be seeing more of that sunshine that we've gotten used to the past couple of days and some of her most mild temperatures of your forecast, too funding well into the 60's today. i've got details still

tuesday morning. hey, john. hey there, james. really nice morning. so far as long as you don't mind, a little bit of a crisp feel to it. we are seeing temperatures down into the 30's and 40's areas like palo alto actually having fallen into the upper 30's this morning. this is san jose right here. a little bit of a glow on the horizon from those remaining clouds that are gradually going to become less and less of a thing throughout the day today, we're actually going to be very solid dose of sunshine for this tuesday and some of her most mild temperatures of the week. not a huge change from where we've been, but about one to 2 degrees warmer than yesterday for a few spots. that's enough to make today. the warmest of the week. high pressure ridge firmly in place. mild day ahead of us. really nice weather you can see in future cast that we do have those mostly sunny skies ahead. a few passing clouds certainly to be seen. so not a crystal clear day by any means tomorrow is going to remain mostly sunny, a few clouds here and there as will be the case for the remainder of the week. now, what would have been our best chance of rain would have been thursday. you
can actually see couple of those spots of green sitting offshore towards activities going to fizzle out before it reaches the bay. so we're going to continue to remain dry all the way through the second week of january. well, into the weekend, too. now today's daytime highs for the most part are peaking solidly in the 60's. burlingame at 62 degrees would side as well as most of the south bay at 66 degrees for highs. really comfortable. one, especially considering how cold and gloomy a has been. today is one. i think we're all going to clinton. i-65 same for you in napa. well, a little cooler. the low 60's from santa rosa down through standard fell. now. tomorrow's highs right around the same as today's likely not quite as warm but very comparable thursday and friday will continue that trend of nice and mild weather and dry conditions. just a little cooler this weekend. but staying dry and staying pretty sunny, looking at our bridges this morning, something else that's been really favorable for getting out. there's been a roads only 15 minutes from the maze to fremont street.
