>> good morning, james. we are 7 hours into it and went into effect at 12. 0, one in the morning. hopefully these people got the word and that they are going to do essential work, meeting to the grocery store or to work otherwise, this is not the law, but they are highly recommending that you stay inside for the next 30 days because well, wildfires, james, we know this flames have swept across sonoma county this time. it's not flame sits on the crime, which is why they're using the next 30 days to slow it down. so in essence, almost hiring you to be a firefighter to spread stop this flames from spreading throughout sonoma county. here's how it's going to work. if you're outside in a pure gathering with more than 100 people. >> don't. and that's according to the health department. if you're inside and it gets more than 50 people don't, you can go to work if it's a small workplace like kron 4, we only
7:02 am
have a handful of people that work. they suggest that you do. zoom calls, if you can work from home for the next month, just to slow it down. why is it so important now? rate right now at last month? why not next month? well, according to the health department, time is of the essence. >> just by pure volume, we're seeing increases in our hospitalizations. we're really concerned about the next 30 days. heat. >> helping stop the rapid spread of the highly contagious variant in our community. our case rates have never been higher and begin decline. >> and james is not just hospitalizations. we've done this story for the last several weeks, months or so. >> staffing levels. a lot of the staff members either have covid there quarantining or let's face it. some people might even be calling sickouts. so that is why with
7:03 am
the number of beds are that are limited and staffing levels. it is so important for sonoma county to do this. it is the only county in the bay area so far. >> to implement the restriction. you're not going to get fined are in trouble. but i'm sure if you have a large gathering, don't be surprised if the health department says knock it off. and james, i got to tell you this morning, just to piggyback on what john trouble did with weather, i would you even have to tell me to stay inside. look at this. >> it's so cold. you don't have to tell me to stay inside and listen leave me. no health officer needs to tell. this guy at a site when it's see your breath hold no doubt. all right. well, thank you very much. it's 7, 0, 3, is the time. another big story we're following. san francisco has issued a new health order as well on mega events and vaccination requirements for sarah stinson. >> live in the city to explain more about that. good morning, sarah. >> good morning. james. not
7:04 am
only is san francisco now requiring you to be boosted if you go to one of these mega events starting february first, but they're also limiting capacity at teese mega events significantly starting saturday is when capacity drops for indoor events from 5,000 people to 500 people significant drop large outdoor events are also affected now allowing 5,000 people down from 10,000 people up to date. vaccinations will be required, including this is, as i said. but remember, that's beginning february. first for all of these events to limit capacity will certainly impact warriors games and events at chase center, the first event to be affected by this new health order is the harlem globetrotters. that was that's this saturday. >> and the first warriors game forced to have lower attendance will be th>s sunday's game against the timberwolves. however, the city's booster requirement already aligns with the decision by chase center. they
7:05 am
made back in december require booster starting february. 1st, take a look at the vaccination requirements for kids starting this saturday for mega events for attendees 16 in up proof of a booster will be needed as soon as they're eligible 12 to 15 years old must also be fully vaccinated. but boosters will not be required until march 5 to 11 year-olds will either need to show proof of vaccination or a negative covid test before attending and children 2 to 4 years old will need a negative antigen test one day before the event or a negative pcr test. 2 days before the event. and as omicron continues to spread like crazy across the city, san francisco health officials with this new order also made it clear they are formally recommending people to wear the kn 95 mask instead of the cloth mask saying that they do a lot more to keep people safe. of course, you can still use the cloth mask, but the formally recommending those
7:06 am
better respiratory mask. >> james, i'm live in san francisco. send it back to you. >> well, thank you very much, sheriff. speaking of the city, san francisco is recording now more positive covid cases than ever before. on average, more than 1300 people now are testing positive each day in the city. and the mayor is now require hospitals to administer more tests or face a hefty fine kron four's. rob nesbitt explains. >> last week san francisco broke a record testing more than 17,000 people for covid in one day. the problem is that the department of health is conducting the majority of those tests and they say hospitals need to pick up the slack. with more tests come more positive cases. director of health in san francisco, doctor grant colfax gave an update tuesday on the city's record breaking numbers. and right now. >> nearly one in 5 tests are positive. the san francisco department of public health along with mayor london breed's office will now require large health care providers to help administer tests to minimize the surge in omicron cases, health
7:07 am
department to shoulder on the vast burden of the of this testing. >> and so as we learn to live with this virus has a testing on demand. absence was we need to make sure that everybody is doing their part if hospitals and hospital affiliated systems don't show proof of providing tests for patients who are symptomatic or who are close contact with someone who has tested positive. they'll face fines of up to $10,000 per day. getting that test within 24 hours of that request and that they are then getting results from that testing within 48 hours. and that happening 90% of the time schools are also getting more help. the city is sending more kn 95 mask and rapid antigen test of the san francisco unified school district. and this week we're distributing the 56,000 at home test kits from the california department of public health to all schools. >> health officials did not put additional covid restrictions on san francisco's businesses as the city experiences case numbers 4 times higher than last. winter's peak. none of this is easy, but we're going to keep working together to support
7:08 am
everyone in the city. it's how we lead. >> the way during covid and is how we will keep moving forward. according to doctor colfax hospitalizations, art as high as they were last winter. he credits vaccines for that saying the majority of people who are in the hospital with covid are either unvaccinated or not up to date with their vaccines. >> in san francisco, i'm rob nesbitt. kron. 4 news. >> well, the covid-19 test sites that were closed in san francisco for the past 2 days are now back open today. so some good news there. the health department said that several sites had to close on monday because of a nationwide software glitch that suspended the testing providers service. the department said that they're working right now to try reschedule all those appointments for people who had them canceled on monday and tuesday. the test providers says that people can make an appointment or walk in for a test today. to the south bay. now san jose has approved a booster mandate for city workers and city own properties. and that includes the sa peace center which is city owned properties. camila barco live with the details on
7:09 am
that as well. good morning, camilla. >> good morning, james c s an jose is the first city in california to require booster shots for its city workers and for city owned venues. and they could also be the first city in the entire country to do this. so this mandate applies to city workers, like i said, for also for anyone who wants to go inside the city like you said, james, it's a eyes to the sapd said the san jose sharks. they have some games. they're currently in season. so if you're planning on attending a game or a concert at the center, you need prove that you have gotten your booster shot. now the dose is also necessary. if you want to step inside the convention center, the center for performing arts and historic theaters. and this mandate applies to those city owned venues for any indoor events with 50 or more people. mayor sam liccardo proposed this idea last month last night the board voted unanimously on the plan. many
7:10 am
council members, including la cited the effectiveness of the vaccine for moving forward on their decision and this this term. and it applies to anyone who is 5 years or older. there are some exceptions. like if you received your second dose of the covid vaccine within the last 6 months or are a minor who is ineligible to get the shot. if you don't have your booster shot and you want to go inside the city venues or your city worker, you could also provide a negative covid test. now city staff says that this mandate goes into effect immediately. so san jose. is not only having 2. it's not only has a vaccine mandate, now they have the booster. mandy and of course, that mask mandate indoor mask mandate is still in place. and like i said, sit this city of san jose is the first city in california to do this. but now we'll have to see if other bay area cities will also implement this twister mandate. james, back to you.

venturing outside with all the sunshine that we're already seeing across the bay. we're going to see short work of those 30's and temperatures rising quickly much as they have the past couple of mornings. setting us up for another really sunny and another really comfortable day ahead of us. we do have some fog in the central valley trying to scoot its way on into our inland east bay valleys and a couple of spots in the north bay, too. high pressure id's sits firmly in place and that's going to keep us dry over the next 10 to 14 days. long-range forecasts are showing no break in the dry trend of weather. so dry janeary ahead of after such a record breaking lee wet behind us tomorrow would have been the best chance of rainfall. couple of those sprinkles showing up on radar offshore. not packing enough of a punch, though, to break through that high pressure ridge and make its way into the bay area. so we stay dry tomorrow. just a few more clouds for your thursday. as for temperatures today will be 50's and 60's right along the coastline. temperatures for our bayshore cities will be among our warmest, although the santa clara valley, really the

7:17 am
and the golden gate bridge. 20 minutes from 37 to the tolls. let's get a look at summer commute times this morning. we do have a slowdown on 80 southbound in the east bay from san leandro at the intersection of 2.38. to milpitas at the intersection of 2.37. and that's going to take you. 25 minutes. still a pretty modest commute, but just a little bit slower the e through that one stretch. if you are traveling westbound on highway 4, we are also at a standstill between pittsburgh and conquered. it's a 20 minute drive. so certainly not the worst i've evar seen. it. and as for the south bay, the chp has issued a severe traffic alert, an emergency roadwork on i-80 to 80 or the i-280 southbound ramp to guadalupe parkway in san jose. all lanes are closed until 09:00am. i'm looking right now and not seeing any backups in the area, but we do have that closure again. that's on the ramp as you're getting off. i-280, southbound to guadalupe parkway. james. all right, john, thank you very much. time now, 7.17, for your money this morning. fresh inflation

7:21 am
apartments and town homes and senior care facilities. the new law takes effect in july and only applies to unincorporated parts of the county. the goal is to prevent secondhand smoke from drifting from one home to the next starting on july. first, smoking will also be banned in common, outdoor and indoor areas within 25 feet of the door or window. in the south bay, a san jose man was killed after being involved in a traffic accident that happened tuesday evening in the area right between kirchner avenue and, know, it's garden the victim was taken to the hospital, but unfortunately died from his injuries. this marks the 3rd traffic fatality in the second pedestrian deaths for san jose. so far this year. elsewhere in the south bay, some san jose city council members are considering whether to allow non u.s. citizens to vote in local elections. the measure would give more than 200,000 noncitizens, reza, non-citizen residents in san jose, the right to select new lawmakers and weigh in on different policies. new york city enacted a similar measure last month and san francisco passed

7:31 am
second day of sickouts. >> the teachers are protesting what they believe to be insufficient covid safety measures. today the sickouts are expected to impact at least 2 schools, including hercules middle school. yasterday, a number of teachers called out sick at grant elementary and korematsu middle school. the teachers are calling for weekly testing of students and a formal covid safety plan for the omicron variant from the district. the district superintendent issued a statement condemning the protests saying that this type of action is. not helpful. a spokesperson for the district says the schools will have enough substitutes to keep classes going. well, despite the sickout classes were back in session tuesday at west contra costa, unified schools after a covid outbreak prompted district leaders to close campuses for 2 days for a deep cleaning. but as teachers, parents and even some students push for a return back to virtual learning during this latest surge county education and health leaders agreed that kids should be in the classroom despite hundreds of new covid cases being reported at schools daily and the

to school. first, you have to navigate the district's website to figure out exactly where the test sites are since they rotate locations. it makes it difficult and there are now also narrow windows of time to get tested each site. parents and teachers and administrators all seem to agree on one thing. the process needs to be a whole lot easier. >> district testing itself, as i said is, is it forever schedule and what makes the most sense is testing schools. we've seen this in la there are other bay area distriits that are making testing a lot more accessible and site based. >> of the people trying to navigate the county's testing process. you can find all the links that you need. kron 4 dot com. we've got a lot of information there for you hopefully make the process a little simpler. the hayward unified school district is expanding covid-19 testing for its students and staff members. the district says that there regionalize ing

feel sick and can't get tested? well, ucsf infectious disease specialist doctor peter chin-hong says that because you could potentially transmit the virus to others. you if you are untested but think you might be sick, you need to isolate. >> you keep us off from people from society, you all yourself up in a one. after the 5. yes symptoms. i'm proving you can go out into the world with a mask on. but i read additional 5 days. if your son doesn't not improving, you basically stay until yo have been recently vaccinated or boosted must mask for 10 days. if you leave the house kind of piggy backing on what doctor peter chin-hong just said. the cdc, by the way, is now considering an update to its mask guidelines, possibly recommending and 95 or kn 95
