7:00 am
john. yeah, getting a little peek of it now, noel. and we're going to see a lot more of it today than yesterday. as of right now. still on that cusp of sunshine. and there's a little bit of low cloud cover, but not as much as yesterday. visibilities been okay. we haven't seen any major spots of fog forming across the bay. >> a couple of pockets around mount tam in marine county. aside from that, though, we're looking pretty good. saw a few sprinkles near the coast yesterday. that's not going to be a thing today with our ever increasing sunshine and current temperatures are pretty chilly. so the biggest thing you got to know this morning as just keep the jackets close, a hand, 30's 40's for most of us. san francisco, though, you're the lone spot at 50 santa rose. in the meantime, along with napa down at 36 degrees. now, as far as our roadways are concerned, we do have one incident. now we do have the center lanes cleared on northbound one. 0, one near san jose's international airport. but it has sent a delay all the way down. one o one past the intersection 80 down clear the eastern edge of
7:01 am
san jose's downtown. it's also resulted in quite the backup there as you're heading up northbound 87 things are improving, but we are still looking at a slow go. it's taking you. 41 minutes to get from san jose to menlo park. so just be mindful of that slowdown. things slow in just a little bit at the toll plaza at the bay bridge. it's a 15 minute drive which isn't bad at all. and for the san mateo bridge, a 13 minute drive. plenty of headlights and tail lights as people head back to work today. a little slow down before the toll plaza at 5.80, at the richmond center fell bridge a 12 minute drive. so not bad and pretty normal at the golden gate bridge. noel, thanks, john. >> happening today, students and teachers across the oakland unified school district are planning a sickout kron 4. sarah stinson joining us live this morning with details. sarah, is this several different schools? just one school in particular? >> well, that several different schools within the oakland unified school district. it's over 1000
7:02 am
students who are saying we're not going back to the classroom and tell our demands have been met. they listed out their demands and them to the district last week. and so today they will be stewing the sickout. there are some teachers who are also doing this in solidarity with those students. the demands include at kn 95 masks for all students twice a week pcr and rapid testing for everyone on campus. >> and more outdoor spaces to eat safely. hundreds of oakland unified teachers participated in the sick out the week. they return from winter break. but the teachers union did reach an agreement with them. the district extended covid sick leave. now students following in their footsteps boycott in the classroom until their demands are met, according to a letter sent by the district to parents on monday, the district says it's been able to meet most of the demands from students writing, quote, 200,000 kn 95 masks are being distributed to all schools to
7:03 am
provide to students. this week we have been installing more covered outdoor eating spaces since the fall. they have already gone at in at numerous schools with more schools ready to have installed once we receive necessary materials. some of which have been on back order for months. the school district says it's also providing on site testing as frequently as possible that some schools getting on site testing twice a week and others once a week, teachers at least 3 schools are participating in today's sickout, aligning with the students demands. teachers say this week's account is not sanctioned by the teachers union. we caught up with 2 teachers saying they're joining in because resources are not evenly supplied throughout the district. >> bridges, we still only received 5 masks students and other sites. they received no mask at all. only one mask per student. this is not equitable to those of us who are in classrooms and school sites. >> it is dangerous. students
7:04 am
are sharing how they're feeling. they're concerned and it does not feel safe. this is very times of sensitive. it's immediate and >> and so needed. students are saying they'd rather not go to the classroom, which means the district will take their demands more seriously. >> and hopefully they can get all of those put into place so that the students can go back to the classroom. >> there is a demonstration that's happening at 8 o'clock this morning. that said acorn, woodland elementary school will be families, staff students going to that just kind of voicing their opinion, trying to show their solidarity. so we'll continue to follow that. and well, wait to hear from the students have reached out to those organizing the sickout. so stay tuned for that for now. send it back to studio. thanks, karen. we'll check in with you again in the next hour. >> meanwhile, students and teachers, students, teachers and staff and the hayward unified school district are going to be returning to in-person classes today.
7:05 am
classes were all held online last week after officials determined there was a shortage of both healthy staff members and covid tests. but the board of education voted on friday in favor of a return to campus today, along with new safety protocols, students and staff were given at-home covid test and either the surgical or kn 95 masks, schools will now offer grab and go lunches. staff meetings are going to be held virtually and student athletes will be tested for covid before attending any practices or competitions. speaking of practice and competitions, the cdc is recommending schools cancel certain extracurricular activities that are considered high risk. that includes football, wrestling and band practice. the agency says any activity that results in increased exhalation raises the risk of spreading covid, especially indoors. this is just a recommendation by the agency, not in any way mandatory, but some local leaders, including marin county's health officer are
7:06 am
encouraging schools to ban spectators from indoor sporting events. another big story we're following this morning. new information thousands of people in the bay area received the wrong dosage of the covid-19 vaccine. kron four's will tran joining us live this morning with those details. well, this is pretty upsetting. >> this is pretty upsetting, not so bad because according to kaiser in walnut creek and the cdc, the amount that you got should still be ok for your immunity. but of course, the mine is very powerful. and if you start to get a little worried about it by all means come back in and get the right dose. now, if you came into kaiser walnut creek, that's the jumping off point. kaiser has a big system, but we're talking that location 25th on december 10th, approximately 4,000 patients. but and during that time, i know well, in a perfect world, they should have gotten point 3, 0,
7:07 am
mililiter. but instead they got anywhere between point to 6 0.2 night just off. but that's still not the recommended dose. they say that it's ok that you should be able to fight off covid-19 or at least keep that at bay. but they are still sending out letters right now telling people exactly what happened. and if you want to come back in and get the right dose, this was not something that was from the manufacturer. so take a look at your screen. this is what kaiser sent out. they say this was an isolated incident, resulting some staff misunderstanding instructions. we took immediate steps. you that the issue was isolated and probably retrain staff. we are continuously monitoring service does not happen again. by the way to well, this is not just the kaiser walnut creek. think this is happened to other places across the country. usually not done the story before say at schools when they do this. a lot of
7:08 am
times the manufacturer will already sent a pretty measured out so they don't have to do it. so you're good to go. but perhaps in this particular case, because these are medical professionals that it was up to them to make the measurement and perhaps that was the reason why another thing that i found out as the morning move, not sometimes when you get a shot, we kind pull away at the last second and maybe drips a little bit that might result in not getting point b o. the bottom line is if you want to it is you come back, kaiser walnut creek. all right. well, thank you for that report. now, despite what some health officials have said, the u.s. surgeon general says the omicron surge >> has not reached its peak doctor, vivek murthy, murphy says the wave of infections is moving at different paces all across the united states. he says we should not expect to see a peak in the coming days. murthy added the next few weeks are going to be tough. this comes as more than 700,
7:09 am
50,000 new covid infections have been reported across the country every day for the past week. the number of americans dying is also increasing. nearly 1800 deaths were reported on sunday. bay area. doctors say they're seeing more reports of people deliberately exposing themselves to covid because the omicron variant is considered to be mild. but as kron four's dan kerman reports, medical experts say this is a big mistake. >> taking a chance like that really is a very bad decision. >> very infectious disease specialist doctor john swartzberg is talking about someone purposely trying to get the omicron variant so they can become immune and press on with life. he says there are numerous problems with that first no guarantee getting it prevents them from getting it again. >> there have been a couple studies last week from one from south africa, one from united kingdom. the show that people were getting second
7:10 am
episodes of omicron within a couple months or less. swartzberg says while most cases of omicron or milder, there's no guarantee you won't be one of those to get very sick. >> or if it is milder to pass it on to someone who is at higher risk, it's much too early to say. we know so much about omicron right now. variant that's been with us for a little over 2 months. you know so much about it that we should expose ourselves to getting infected with this. swartzberg says one final reason not to actively seek out omicron. he's due to the risk of long covid. you may have a mild case of covid. but it may just not go away. that is the huge. sometimes they get better. you're sort through your nose, your body aches, but the fatigue may persist the cloud i'm thinking may persist other symptoms. one covid may persist indefinitely. this point, we just don't know. and that's what it comes down to. medical
7:11 am
experts say we still just don't know enough about omicron. >> and purposely trying to get it is too much of a risk. dan kerman kron, 4 news. >> moderna is working on a triple booster for covid-19. the flu and other respiratory viruses, ceo talking about the shot at the world economic forum in geneva yesterday saying he hopes a combined booster shot will be ready for use by fall of next year. >> no to be able have a single and you're was so that we don't of compliance issues where people don't want to get to the free shots, a to get one those low to get to know boost a full call and it was so full through a to make sure that people get their vaccines. >> he added moderna's aiming to make 2 to 3 billion covid doses this year with tweaks made to address the omicron variant. however, doctor anthony fauci says the goal should be a booster that induces a response against multiple covid variants.

residual delay, sending back all the way down towards the intersection of 2.81. 0 one. it's going to take you nearly an hour from san jose to menlo park. so adjust your commute based on that slowdown. also, a standstill between antioch in pittsburgh as you're heading westbound on highway 4, 30 minutes to get you there. bay bridge. not too bad. just a modest back up there at the toll plaza. 16 minutes to make the drive. certainly a few more cars on the san mateo bridge than yesterday. we did have a brief traffic break heading westbound. that's what we noted at the start of my last hit with you. but now that has since cleared and obviously things are rolling just fine. richmond center fell bridge 13 minutes back up before the tolls. but once you get through those, it is smooth sailing. and the golden gate bridge sitting under some low clouds. but everything else is good to go. noel. thanks, john. >> forty-niners turning their focus now to their matchup against the packers and the raiders looking for a new general manager after firing mike mayock kron. 4 sports
