sonoma county is the only county so far in the bay area to implement this. i purposely chose to sit down with you guys because i feel like a teenager next to you guys actions then, james, i'm here because james, is >> 75 back it. >> stop it. thank you very much. enjoy your coffee with the guys. 9 o 4 is the time. another big story, san francisco. they've also issued a new health order to when it comes to large events and they've tweaked their vaccination requirements as well. we've got kron 4 sarah stinson to explain for us live from the city. good morning, sarah. >> san francisco has redefined what is considered a mega event within the city. changing the amount of people it takes for to required to call it a mega event and now they are going to start
requiring booster shots to attend one of these mega events. so what makes a mega event starting this saturday? well, instead of 5,000 people indoors, it is 500 people indoors for those events and it for large outdoor events. it's considered a mega event with more than 5,000 people instead of what was 10,000 people. this goes into effect saturday. up to date. vaccinations will be required to attend one of these, including boosters. >> beginning february first, the new booster requirement was already going to be required by chase center, starting on the first. so it is aligned with the city on that event at the chase center won't be affected. i want to clarify that because there was some confusion earlier. it's it's already been considered a mega event because of the size and officials there worked with the city to maintain and stay in compliance and contact the chase center to see what we can discuss their thoughts on the city changing this and >> all of the boosters being required. now, let's start,
though, with what is required for children attending mega events for attendees 16 and up proof of the booster will be needed as soon as they are eligible 12 to 15 year-olds must also been fully vaccinated. but boosters will not be required until march 5 to 11 year-olds will either need to show proof of vaccination or negative covid-19. test before attending and then the 2 to 4 year-olds will need a negative antigen test. one day before the event. >> or a negative pcr test 2 days before the event. >> as omicron continues to spread within the city, the health department in san francisco also finally formally recommending people to wear a kn 95 mask out instead of a cloth mask. of course, you can still wear the cloth mask but the health department taking a firm stance saying that the kn 95 mask will further protect you from mcconnell. another variant of the coronavirus. so again, i'm in contact with chase center. we're going to
talk to them about how this affects them and why they just chose on their own to require boosters back in december. again, starting february first, james, back to february first. okay. thank you, sarah. >> meanwhile, san francisco is now also recording more positive covid cases. then ever before. on average, more than 1300 people now are testing positive each day in the city. and that's prompted mayor london breed to announce a new order that requires hospitals to administer covid test to patients who present with symptoms in a timely manner. the order goes into effect today and don't follow the order could face hefty fines. the public health department says the testing is needed because of how contagious the omicron variant is. >> 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. and so as we learn to live with this virus has a testing on demand absence laws. we need to make sure that everybody is doing their part.
>> in san francisco, doctors say the vast majority of those that are being hospital hospitalized right now with covid are the unvaccinated or those got vaccines but not gotten their booster yet. the covid-19 test sites that were closed in san francisco for the past 2 days are now thankfully back open today. the health department said that several sites had to be shut down monday because of a nationwide software glitch that prevented the test sites providers from doing their work. the department says that they were working right now to reschedule all the appointments that had to be canceled yesterday and on monday. hopefully they get them rescheduled soon. the test provider at that site says that anybody can make an appointment or if supplies are there, you can actually walk in and get tested that day. in the south bay, san jose has approved a booster mandate for city workers and city owned properties. that includes the s ap center owned by san jose and crawford's camila. barco is live for us now with what this means for all of us. coming up.
>> san jose mayor sam liccardo and council members spend a majority of the meeting talking about the effectiveness of the booster shot. the cargo says that this is going to avoid having. hospitals from being overwhelmed and what local health expert tells me that the 3rd dose is the sweet spot for the ultimate protection. so booster shots are going to be in side say, oh, been used for any indoor event with 50 or more people. so, for example, like james said, the sep center, if you plan on attending a game or a concert, there, be prepared to show proof of your booster shot. it does is also necessary at the convention center, the center for performing arts and historic theaters. people who also worked for the city of san jose. we'll need to get to stay. the board voted unanimously on this plan and some council members cited the boosters high level of protection for their decision. the local infectious disease expert doctor peter chin han
says your chances of getting infected with the omicron variant are low with the booster shot compared to only having 2 doses. >> you look at many other vaccine say given and threes measles, mumps and rubella, hepatitis b, human papilloma virus. and there's a reason behind that. you've got much more durability of protection by doing 1, 2 punch waiting a few months and then reminding the immune system so, you know, i after the dust settles, i think that this vaccine will end up with at least 3 shots. and that might be the sweet spot. >> now, san jose's this term and it applies to anyone who is 5 years or older. there are exceptions like if you received your second dose of the covid vaccine within the last 6 months or if you are a minor who is ineligible to get the shot, if are not the state, you can also provide a negative covid test states that city staff says that this mandate goes into effect immediately. and james, the
city of san jose is the first city in california to implement this booster mandate for city workers and city own venues and they could possibly possibly be the first city in the entire country to do this. james, back to you. incredible. all right. thank you very much. camila. >> we'll take a break here at 9.11, but still ahead on the kron, 4 morning news contra costa county moving forward with in-person. >> learning when it comes to schools will tell you why they say students, we are better off in classrooms. plus, police say an elderly woman was assaulted in oakland. we're going to show you the video and talk about the attack or the police are looking for and plenty of sunshine all over again today. back to the sixties. we go this time around. >> a little bit warmer for the south bay hearing 70. the details in your forecast after the break.
>> we're back at 9.15 and before you head out the door, no, you need to grab a jacket because although look, sunny outside, it's not warm. yes, good morning, john. definitely not yet. it looks great for sure, though, looking out here at half moon bay skies are nice and bright and although not necessarily on the warm side, you are one of our most mild areas right up next to
the coastline. generally the north bay still on the cold side, especially on solano county. we're only in the 30 still for a few spots out that way. skies are clear for the vast majority of the bay solano county and some of our inland east bay valleys is where we are seeing some of that valley fog having sifted on into those lower elevations. so that's keeping temperatures colder out that direction a little bit more mild under all the sunshine closer to the coast. high pressure ridge firmly in place is going to consistently keep us dry over the next 10 to 14 days. so expect this mild dry pattern to remain tomorrow. a few clouds passing over what would have been our best chance of showers. but there was looking slim already and it's definitely not panning out for us. so thursday remains dry. just a little cooler and a little cloudier. it's about the biggest change we have in that. what is overall a very steady forecast 50's and 60's for your daytime highs near the coastline today and for some of us, especially the south bay will be inching actually fairly close to 70
degrees. look at san jose up to 68 degrees. much of the rest of the santa clara valley in the same boat pleasanton dublin livermore, each at 62. oakland, 63 for your high wall range of upper 50's to low 60's for most of the north bay this afternoon. tomorrow's temperatures will be a little cooler, but not much of a difference. we continue to fall a degree or 2 on into the weekend and early next week, staying dry throughout the entire forecast. bridges this morning have been just as easy to talk about. is this forecast has been looking outside of the bay bridge. we have conditions out there that are nice and clear. we are seeing a brew commute across the bay bridge. eventually anyways. that will take you less than 10 minutes. 8 minutes from the maze to fremont street. the san mateo bridge, 13 minutes to make that crossing and a pretty easy one across the richmond center fell too. only 7 minute drive there under all that sunshine, the golden gate bridge, 20 minutes to get you from. 37 down to the tolls. now we do have some issues in the south bay this morning to
know we have a severe traffic alert issued by the chp and some of emergency road work on the 2.80, northbound and southbound ramps to guadalupe parkway in san jose. that's both the northbound and southbound ramps. all lanes being closed there that has sent some residual delays across that intersection just south of downtown san jose. if you want to avoid it, one o one has been a consistently good opportunity to do so from san jose to menlo park. it is at the limit. 28 minutes to get you along that route. james, thank you very much, john. time to talk winners and losers on wall street with financial expert rob black. joining us as always, to help us understand what we're seeing on the markets. robin, this morning it's sort of just an ok start. everything is positive, but not by much, which grabbing your eyes. >> let's go back. i guess. 72 hours, the passive hold back. start the week. then yesterday the fed reserve chairman jerome powell, started talking
the senate. he said inflation is bad. yes, but our economy strong and i'm going fight inflation. markets, rally party today. we're just going to digest it. looks like it looks like we're going to higher with bitcoin. and with all rising but point back as the day progresses inflation, we learned last year's inflation numbers was up 7% year over year. that's a lot. 7 per cent everything. there was a spencer, but everything is getting more expensive. everything. but even some example shelter was up. 4% doesn't sound horrible. used cars up. 37% energy up 29% gasoline prices up. 49 1% food prices up 6%. so there's real inflation has people like you and for sure of note expected to shelves. lot of grocery stores are supply chains getting disrupted again in asia. so we'll have some problems. bank of america and other banks or eliminating overdraft as fintech and millennials are saying we don't need old-fashioned
banking anymore. and kim cashing in floyd mayweather being sued because they came out with theory a max doris months last year getting between 500,000 a million dollars to tell her instagram followers how great it is. it went down. 98% of the owners ran away with your money. so they're getting sick. okay? yeah. >> saw that. come in. once a those headlines started to break. well, a moment ago, you mentioned drop house comments fueled a late rally yesterday. also fueled speculation that what higher mortgage rates are around the corner. and so now we've got a little bit of a boost in demand. people trying to buy up the house while they can. while the pilots quote, unquote, cheap. >> now we have some crazy trends in real estate in the last couple years. pandemic is obviously some people looking for bigger homes in more rural areas. that's been a trend, then low interest rates. the housing prices going higher. record low mortgage rates, kind of mortgage last year for 2.3%. wow. crazy. good. but now that mortgage rates are rising, another trend is emerging. people are panicking
and they're trying to buy real estate. now all rates are low here. ask me here. smart uncle with money which you which is more important. low rates or the cost of the escape, going to go with lower rates. because over 30 years your payment will get easier for you as your wages go up. but your payments stay static and mortgage in your home go up or down in value. whether or not over those 30 years should go up in value. so a lot of people are are pushing to manage a very strong and right now again, homeowners are just renters are getting left in the dust as of right where santa. >> on all of them, i just that that that. that bottle of home ownership to further and further away in the distance. i don't i can't just can't catch up with it's a struggle. the law minors are dealing with my potential advice for you, james. yeah. consider buying in like a state like florida or arizona where he may retire and putting richards in it. so you're getting exposure equity with pretty good low rates. now a and a plan b for later. >> not a bad thought actually. all right. we'll get some
coffee. and then lastly this morning, let's talk a little bit about apple trying to get into baseball. how and why. >> 191 billion dollars in bash is how. i'm there to buy their way into lot like amazon did with thursday night football. amazon kind of goofed around for a couple years with thursday night putting in kind of a famine approach. the broadcast booth set with his mask london and aggressive. but they're going to be betting on the monday and wednesday game package. major league baseball isn't a lock out right now. it's the owners have to come up with new revenue sources. i predict apple, google, microsoft, netflix and maybe amazon all are going start mining to splice sports as a way of getting you to use their products down the road. i think people like anderson cooper in tucker carlson are being blocked by the companies like apple and google feed news if not something like a cnn, cnn starting a paid channel app right now. so the world of abc, nbc, cbs and fox is an independent stations like ron, it's going to get tougher and tougher because we don't have a billion dollar
war chest like on big tech companies still apple tv plus need something something and it's live. local games will still stay local. stay with regional coverages. but mlb needs money to pay players more money. this is the answer. okay. so apple's app, apple's looking the baseball. so if i understand your rights, let's say the giants are playing. i don't have to have apple tv to watch them if they're playing monday wednesday because >> local games are still on the broadcast channels, but games outside of the area. i might have to watch on apple tv. >> the red zone, every premium packages going start being been on by the big tech because they have the cash again, a billion dollars last baseball contract for mondays and wednesdays went to espn for about 300, 50 million right? no, you know, there's nothing. apple. i mean, it is literally a drop in war bucket. it's it's nothing. it's a rounding error in their welcome to the 21st century media, i guess. all right.
taken to the hospital, but unfortunately died. and this marks the 3rd traffic fatality. now in the second pedestrian deaths for san jose this year. oakland police need help finding an elderly woman they say was assaulted in the chinatown neighborhood. there's video of it. police released that you will watch the right hand side here about midway up. there's an elderly woman walking down the street when a person comes up from behind. in a moment you'll see he shoves her to the ground for no reason. it is. this happened monday at the corner of 9th and franklin streets just outside the pacific renaissance plaza officers arrived on scene. but by that point, the victim already gone and she's described as roughly 7 years old about 5 feet tall. police are also still looking for the suspect who was last seen heading north on franklin street. oakland city council members have introduced new legislation to ban the distribution or creation of untraceable ghost guns. these are guys that have no serial numbers that can be purchased online and delivered right to a person's home and then
assemble in just a few minutes. authorities say it's a growing problem across the bay area. they're often used in crimes because they can't be traced. the city council is expected to hold a vote on the ban next tuesday. similar laws have already been passed in la and san diego. 9.26. the time. we'll take a quick break. coming up next on the kron, 4 morning news, there is a big demand for covid-19 testing as we know and health officials are asking those with mild symptoms to refrain from. >> going to the hospital's er to get that test will explain why.
>> 9.30, is the time. we'll start the quarter the half hour with a check of the forecast. johnson talking about a sunny skies but cold temperatures. what about the rest of the week? let's find out. hey, john, definitely some cold starts for sure, james, that's something we can count on the next few mornings as well. our afternoon highs will continue to be above our seasonal averages. so quite the whiplash from morning into afternoon. but that's the way goes this time of year. sometimes lots of sunshine out there. going to warm us up really quickly this morning, not all of us are under the sunshine, though. we have had some dense fog inland in the central valley that he's ever gone into portions of the inland east bay, especially solano county. that's kept temperatures out that direction. a whole lot cooler than for the rest of the bay area. you notice fairfield
sitting at 47 degrees right now compared to pacific as 57 degrees and bodega bay just below 60 at 59 this afternoon, we have some nice stuff to look forward to all across the bay. so just keep those jackets on him this morning and we'll get to some really good feeling stuff here. very shortly as far as our bridges go, it's been a really easy commute for the bay bridge. still below 10 minutes to get you from the maze to fremont street. and just above 10 minutes across the san mateo bridge moving along, just fine. as for the richmond center fell bridge, you're sitting under sunshine and a 7 minute commute across the span. the golden gate bridge from the intersection of 37 to the tolls on one. 0, one, a 20 minute drive. james. all right, john, thank you. 9.31. the time. let's get back to the headlines now and happening today. we have groups of teachers in the west contra costa unified school district. >> holding a second day of sickouts. they're protesting what they think are insufficient covid safety measures. so today the sickout is expected to impact at least 2 schools, including hercules
middle school. yesterday, a number of teachers called out sick at grant elementary and to middle school. the teachers say they want weekly testing of students and a formal covid safety plan for the omicron variant from the district. now the superintendent issued a statement condemning the protests saying that this act of this type of action is not helpful. a spokesperson for the district says the schools have enough substitute teachers to keep classes going if need be. well, despite the sick out, 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 so they can do a deep clean. but as teachers and parents and even some students push for return to virtual learning county education officials and health leaders say that kids should be in the classroom instead despite hundreds of new covid cases being reported at schools daily and the county averaging nearly 2000 new cases in the past week, the county's public health director says that in person learning is what's better for kids right now.
>> early on, we were like, oh, no, the kids are going to transmit it to each other and though the safer at home. well, it turned out to being at being unmasked and playing with their friends. i'm actually probably cause more transmission and then being in school. >> and teachers across the bay area have raised concerns about safety and a lack of personal protective equipment in schools and a lack of testing, too. some have even staged protests. the superintendent of the contra costa county board of education says that the county is dealing with a shortage of teachers due to the surge and they're now asking for people to step up and fill substitutes if they can. state provided covid take home. test kits are being distributed right now in san francisco unified school district. but getting tested at a district site can still be a problem for some parents and teachers who are desperate to find out if they're safe enough to come back to school. first, you have to navigate the district's website to figure out exactly where the testing
sites are because they rotate locations. there's also a very narrow window of opportunity to be tested at each of the sites and parents and teachers, along with the administrators all agree. but the process is convoluted as it stands and it needs to be simplified. >> 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 districts that are making testing a lot more accessible and site based. >> if you're one of the people trying to navigate the county's testing process, you can find all the links you need on our website. kron 4 dot com. the hayward unified school district is expanding covid-19 testing for its students and staff members. the district says that they are regionalize ing testing centers and lengthening test times. there's also a mobile testing unit who that's going to be coming to the school district's office today to provide testing for staff members testing. their starts
at 10 o'clock this morning and 6 tonight that mobile unit will be park in the visitors parking lot at the school district's office just off of amador street. staff members can also be tested on friday to if they wish. well, governor gavin newsom signed an executive order to try and address the staffing shortages at schools during this covid surge. the order makes it a little easier for schools to hire and extend the assignments of substitute teachers also allowing them to stay in these rules a little bit longer as needed. it also lets certain retired teachers return to the classroom to help out if they're asked to do so. the executive order will expire on march 31st. and we're also hearing too, that about 62,000 students and staff in the los angeles county school district. they tested positive for covid-19 just as they're set to return to school today. according to la is unified school district. the school is now requiring all students and employees to show proof of a negative test before they can come back to the classroom. a spokesperson
for the district says they have about 4,000 staff members right now that are ready to step in and teach if it becomes necessary. in the east bay visiting a hospital for covid-19. testing is not recommended right now. if you're only experiencing mild symptoms or if you have no symptoms, but you're just worried that you might have it. that's the word from john muir health. they say the health system right now is seeing a huge spike in the number of emergency room visits for simple testing. they have plenty of tests. that's not the issue. what's at issue right now is the capacity to serve very ill patients. so if you're experiencing mild symptoms, possibly rated related to covid-19 or you're asymptomatic. but you want a routine test to find out. if you have it, don't go to the er. they need to reserve those doctors and nurses for those that are really sick. you want to take home test if you can find one or go to a local clinic to get tested, do not come to the er. with increased difficulty scheduling a covid test and at home test becoming harder and harder to find.
what do you do if you feel sick but you can't get tested. ucsf infectious disease specialist doctor peter chin. hong has some advice and it all centers around isolating yourself. >> 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 the u.s. so improving and wear the mask for the remainder of the time to make up 10 days. medical experts say that. >> if you have no symptoms but were exposed to others who do have covid? well, those have been recently vaccinated or boosted have to mask for 10 days. if they leave the house. the cdc speaking of masks is considering maybe updating its mask guidelines, too. maybe now recommending and 95 or kn and neck kn 95 masks instead of the cloth ones as this
stands right now. and again, all this is because the omicron variant in the surge that we're seeing in cases. but as it stands right now, the cdc says that you should have 2 or more layers of washable breathable fabric that make up your mask. it should be completely should offer. complete coverage of your face, your nose or mouth and fit snugly with no gaps. these guidelines could still be useful if and 95 are not readily available. there's no estimate on when these new mask guidelines are going to be we have multiple studies that show cloth masks, offer the least protection, especially indoors. if you compare it up with a mask that double mask technique, well, all the better. coming up on the kron. 4 morning news. california's proposal for universal health care. >> is moving forward. we'll tell you how the plan would help give all residents access to health insurance. well, that the recent criticism of the plan as well for that, too, the warriors, well, they took on the memphis grizzlies on the road. it wasn't a win, but we'll have a we actually hear from klay thompson about why the grizzlies were so tough. and another really nice
when a truck hit my car, the insurance company wasn't fair. i didn't know what my case was worth, so i called the barnes firm. i'm rich barnes. it's hard for people to know how much their accident case is worth. let our injury attorneys help you get the best result possible. >> for your health this morning, state lawmakers move forward with an effort to create a single payer universal health care system here in california. so now this health care bill has to pass through another committee and then the entire assembly
before the end of the month. in order for it to stay alive. some democrats, though, republicans opposed the bill saying that it has too many unknowns, including funding and how it's going to affect retirees and the medical workforce. >> so many unanswered questions is not a time to start a brand new city-run bureaucracy funded by unsustainable taxes, play some employers trying to survive the pandemic. >> governor newsom is proposing his own version of universal healthcare by expanding the state's health insurance to allow low income californians, all of them coverage regardless of immigration status. >> we'll take a break at 9.42. we'll be right back. 9.45. the
time? let's get another check of the forecast here before we wrap things up on the kron. 4 morning news, john, with our. >> final forecast. a there, james. nice and sunny out there. you can see most of san jose and the shot right here. >> under the sunshine that we're seeing across the south bay. temperatures are starting to rise under what has been such clear conditions. it was a really cold morning, though, especially for inland areas. still some fog and low cloud cover remaining for for this inland spots this morning. high pressure ridge going to stay in place now in our long-term forecast, this is keeping a steadily dry over the next 10 to 14 days here.
any chance of rainfall continuing to be sent? well to the north, our best opportunity for rain had been thursday. even then it was just the slimmest of chances of it. and it's not going to come to fruition. just a little bit of cloud cover tomorrow is going to be the biggest change. this forecast really has to offer from today's sunshine to partly cloudy skies, but still very mild in the year thursday, just around the corner. as for today's daytime highs really similar to yesterday, which brought a very nice and comfortable feel to it. sunshine will really help to make those 60's feel quite nice. as you venture outside san carlos in redwood city chat. 64 today south bay temperatures, our warmest the santa clara valley warming to just below 70 degrees for some spots. fremont hayward on up to oakland in the mid 60's. well, low 60's further inland and even some upper 50's in venetian, pittsburgh. among our cooler spots, especially considering our inland areas. now tomorrow's temperatures will be a touch cooler, but even cooler yet by only a few degrees into the weekend and early next week. that's when
our daytime highs will mostly be back into the upper 50's by next monday, inland areas will continue to be cold during our evening hours with bayside and coastal lows, mostly in the 40's bridges this morning while they've been continually easy, just like they've been for a few weeks now. bay bridge from the maze to fremont street, having hardly seen a backup at any point today. right now it's going to take you 8 minutes to make the crossing 12 minutes across the san mateo bridge and also below 10 minutes as you get across the richmond center fell bridge. you're look at the golden gate. looks great. look at the flag on the right side of the screen, though. it is definitely below and that steady wind that we do have that is resulting in some noticeably breezy conditions, especially on our bridges. we do have a traffic alert issued by the chp in the south bay. you're off-ramps from 2.80, both northbound and southbound on to the guadalupe parkway just south of downtown san jose is closed all lanes. there are closed and that has sent some reverberating delays
