9:06 am
prediction. >> there's incredible number of pieces of omicron in both unvaccinated and vaccinated. what that does is it exposes you to the entire virus and you develop antibodies t cells and b cells across the entire virus. we will not be likely masking contact tracing, doing asymptomatic testing. >> as infectious disease, doctors monitor the omicron surge around the world data from samples of wastewater in the bay area indicates the spread of omicron is declining. meanwhile, covid infections soaring again at nursing homes in the united states. unfortunately, deaths and cases are both up across the board. health officials are blaming the omicron variant for the setback, nursing homes reported a near record of roughly 32,000 cases. among residents in the week ending january night. they're also nearly 600, 50 deaths during that same period. despite the surge deaths are down from december of 2020. cdc says the

>> welcome back. just about to be 9.15, here on this monday morning. a lot of folks have today off, of course, to to martin luther king junior day, meaning you're working a four-day workweek. but one bay area tech company has implemented a shorter workweek permanently and they want to inspire other companies to do the kron. 4 sarah stinson has a look. >> at the start of the pandemic companies across the country had to adapt quickly and allow their employees to work from home like i'm doing right now. well, a tech company in san francisco is taking it a step further by implementing a permanent four-day workweek. >> it's not about trying to cram 5 days of working for days. it really is about transforming how you work fundamentally and really with mostly prioritizing spending your time of the most important impactful things.
9:16 am
bolt is a one-click technology for people to use while shopping online old is the first checkout experience platform on the market. >> the tech company has 550 employees. the ceo ryan breslow launched a pilot program at the end of 2021. to see if a four-day workoeek could be done successfully. we asked employees. >> should we continue this? you know, it was a pilot after all, a 94% of employees that absolutely. let's keep it going. it went into effect january of this year. 86% of the company says they feel more productive. it's easier to have those conversations about. do we really need to jump on the phone for an hour. need to have a zoom call about that. or can we just kind of go back and forth in maybe 5 minutes on the slack? there are dozens of companies across the country trying out a four-day workweek as a trial. this is even being discussed in washington with 100 lawmakers backing new legislation. >> that would reduce the modern day work week from 40
9:17 am
hours down to 32. the bill would not eliminate 5 day work weeks altogether, but require employers to offer employees overtime after 32 hours. do you think it's to really make sure that companies have flexibility and how it's applied? not all types of work is the so i think we'll have different models out there. they're start to surface that people can leverage. the pandemic has made it extremely hard for companies to retain and find employees. supporters of a four-day workweek say this could help solve that problem. and that's proving to be true at bolt getting lead-in request. people asking if we're hiring it's definitely something that i think is going to be putting some pressure on other companies to try to at least give it a shot. >> as for the legislation in dc it hasn't moved forward since it was first introduced in july. but the people who work at bolt, believe this could be a trend will start to see among companies in the bay area reporting in san francisco, sarah stinson, back to you.
9:18 am
>> as much as i like that idea, i have little anywhere anytime soon. john and i are ready to sign up, though. i think yeah, i will sign our names. kron wants to do a four-day thing. that will be cool. but four-day workweek for a lot of people know. well, as this martin luther king junior day. so that just means less people venturing out for a commute and more people venturing out hopefully to enjoy what will be some nice weather outside today. partly cloudy skies overhead and what we are seeing was a couple of sprinkles near the coastline. little bit less of that activity. but don't be surprised if you feel a couple of drops. that's about all mother nature's got for us as far as any chance of rainfall goes in this forecast, southern california is tapping into some more of that energy while the bay area we're sitting right between the jetstream being sent to our north and that system to our south. and that means we just got a partly cloudy sky today tomorrow and wednesday, skies clear out really nicely. that's the way we're going to stay the rest of the forecast. today's daytime highs will be really familiar. 50's and 60's
9:19 am
