5:02 am
you said, they're going to do that today. however, one school board member took social media and listed the schools that are being considered too close. in a lengthy letter, the district claims has struggled financially and district leaders say that part of the reason is due to a decline in enrollment. the district is also arguing that there investing in smaller schools, then larger ones and it's preventing them from serving students and paying your teachers and staff a better salary. now my conscience and that the director for district 5 says that oakland unified school district is not in the financial crisis. he went to facebook to post the school's possibly set to close at the end of this school year. and if you look at your screen here, they are according to hand, the school district is considering to close more than 10 schools. that includes a few elementary schools like prescott and brookfield. this also includes west lake middle school on and high schools like rent stale. hutchison

5:04 am
shows that this sub variant is not as contagious as the original omicron strain and from what doctors know so far masking and the current vaccines still work fairly well against this new subvariant. >> at this point we haven't seen anything a surprising yet. it is still called the variant of interest by the world health organization. and so far we know that the vaccines are still pretty against even this current variants. we know that a booster makes that protection even better. >> well, some experts do say that there is a possibility that this subvariant of omicron could re infect people who recently had the virus will have to see about that going forward. california senator alex padilla and top pediatric doctors are urging parents to get their kids vaccinated for covid yesterday. senator padilla lead a panel with some of the state's top health care providers that panel talked about data that shows many kids that are between 5 and up
5:05 am
who are eligible for the vaccine are still getting sick with covid-19 senator padilla says he's a father to 3 children and that the vaccine is important for their safety. and for the normal life that they're hoping to get back to in the classroom. >> they could wait to get back to school in person they couldn't wait to start seeing their friends again, tomer extended family but they knew order to do something so safely, it wasn't just the distancing wasn't just the masks. as soon as the vaccines were approved, they i was going to be key to staying safe and healthy. >> well, officials say they're trying to do more outreach in schools and clinics and encouraging those that are hesitant. be more open to the vaccine and the science behind it and its efficacy. they say it's critical at this stage to get everybody vaccinated. who can be eligible to get a shot? well, masks will soon be able to come off for those who are
5:06 am
fully vaccinated in some parts of san francisco. that's a little bit of good news. the city's health office released a new order that will ease restrictions for some indoor settings. so starting on february, first, people in certain settings like offices and gyms will be allowed to take off their masks. masks will still be required, though, for gatherings of 500 people or more. also starting on february, first, people who do not get a covid vaccine will be allowed to dine or work out indoors, but they'll have to show proof of a negative covid test in order to get him. representatives for contra costa and alameda counties. both said that at this point, they don't have any immediate plans to loosen their indoor mask those will stay in place. but we do have some changes elsewhere in san francisco following the announcement there, the golden state warriors and the chase center have released new rules for fans beginning on the first of the month. every person entering chase center has to show proof of vaccination and that includes a booster shot and they have to get those shots at least one week prior to the event. the other option is to show
5:07 am
proof of a negative covid test taken within. 24 to 48 hours, depending on the type of test. in the north bay. the sonoma county health officer is clarifying a recent health order for indoor events. earlier this month, the county limited indoor public events to just 50 people. well, now indoor events can include 50 spectators and they're not going to add in the staff that's involved with the event, the media, the players, the performers. so those folks won't be included in that count to 50 the health order. also limits outdoor gatherings to 100 people were social distancing cannot be accommodated the out the updated health order is due to expire at 11:59pm on february 10th. well, excitement is building for the nfc championship game between the niners and the rams. we've been talking about this all week long. sunday's getting that much closer. now, the niners have another day of practice today and then we'll head down to l a and so our niner fans, they're planning on traveling to cheer the team on kron four's will tran is standing by live out of sfo
5:08 am
hope and have chatted with a few. have you seen any yet? i know it's little little early. will. >> it's a little early. but, you know, like our producer richard said, if they're cheap tickets, you go when you go. and so for right now, it is quiet. you can see just the lack of activity behind me. remember last week when i was here, we saw so many niners fans take off the green bay. but this time, unlike last week, they have the option to drive. but the bottom line is, james, this is probably the start of getaway weekend for niners fans either. they will be driving or flying starting today. and when they go, obviously they have their tickets on their phones or literally the paper ticket themselves because this is the hottest ticket in town, meaning they built its or whatever. here and make so fy stadium in los angeles, a home game for the san francisco
5:09 am
forty-niners early estimations. it appears that 2 out of 3 fans down in los angeles come sunday will be a niners fan. speaking of the niners, they took the practice yesterday. they should be at full strength, hoping to make it 7 in a row against the los angeles rams. right now the rams are slight favorites, but only because home team. according to the so-called experts that, you know, they take to the radio, they take to the television programs and the pundits. it seems like right now, james, all indications are that the niners, if they lose, that will be a shock as far as shock. run across some sticker shock. if you're looking to get your hands on some last-minute tickets, we track down an executive at he says these tickets are on >> this is certainly in demand game to say the very least. and it's trending to be the number one on super bowl nfl playoff game in our history.
5:10 am
so currently the getting price is around $600 with the average ticket price sold just over $1100. to put that in perspective, the packers and niners nfc championship game just 2 years ago here in our backyard. and levis was only 600, $70. so as the states have gone up this year and it's the 3rd match up for the night is rams prices have tripled since the week. 17 >> so the niners fans, they are rat that they cannot wait to go and some people think because the rams early on, they quickly posted it and took it down that they only wanted to sell the tickets to the los angeles residents are in that area might have poked the bear, james, that a lot of 90's fans, they will be traveling and it will be a sea of red. we will try to track down some fans. just like i said a little bit earlier, james, this time they have the option of driving down as opposed to flying to green
5:11 am
bay. but we do expect a lot of fans. this is their getaway. i have no doubt, james, that they already know where the niners will be. staying at the hotel. >> and if they are leaving today, they probably will be grieving the bus once the niners reach to their hotel. this is obviously the biggest game for their fans until they reach the super bowl. of course, it not the redo it all over again. by the way, to the super bowl. we'll be in los angeles. so the niners fans, you might want to stake out a place to stay. when you come back in about 2 weeks with a to get those air bnb reservations in now, thank you very much. well, >> it is 5.11, still ahead on the kron. 4 morning news. check this out. a man caught on camera trying to steal of and in the east bay. >> with a clear view of them, we're going hear from the owner of the van and why they're worried about an uptick in that drop something better. come back at that. there you go. >> and after the break, president biden pledging to nominate a black woman to fill a vacant supreme court seat. we're going have reaction from
5:12 am
local political science lectures about the nominees on the short list. and president biden also warning the leader of ukraine of a possible invasion from russia maybe as i% early as next month as the u.s. is it that locking horns with russia will have more on that in a live report from the scene.
