have to wear it's probably worth wild, open up with close yet to put on. so the owner limits service to outdoor. only you basically have to reinvent your business every time the rules change. so we've gone from, you know, indoor to note to nothing to something to go pick up a few blocks away at this women's clothing store. the owner says she notices the trickle down effect. fewer people in bars and restaurants means fewer people coming around the shop, and she says it doesn't help that other nearby counties, arm or opened up. there is a huge competitive disadvantage because, like i said, if we don't have bars and restaurants open at a certain capacity, people are going to go to neighboring towns and not come here. where where you could do multiple things. so why is solano trading and red waters and not moving forward? some of it is geography, solano also borders the sacramento region, which is still in red. and besides that, there are the covid metrics. we're doing well with our positivity rate, and
4:02 pm
we're doing very well with our health equity metric. both of those are actually quite solidly in the orange for us. but our case rate the number of cases reported each day is in the red. those new covid infection numbers, he says, mostly involved 20 and 30 year olds. i suspect a lot of this is march madness. get togethers. get togethers for sporting events on the weekends to watch them and it is predominately younger people. the good news is that it's not older at luca's. the owner says he's seen covid fatigue firsthand. and in the beginning people were understand and very understanding. that's starting to go away. they're starting to not be so understanding about what we have to do to, you know, maintain the rules. county health officials do say they expect solano to reach the orange tear by the end of april. andre or at least there's some good news in all of that, rob. thank you so much. meantime the san francisco school board says it is committed to bringing all students and teachers back to

4:13 pm
speed was the cause of the crash involving tiger woods. back in february, the los angeles county sheriff's department completed its investigation last week and released the report today with woods permission, according to the data recorder in woods, lone arrest you ve he was going nearly twice the speed limit in a 45 mile per hour zone, and officials say there was also evidence no evidence of breaking during that collision. instead there was evidence of accelerating. the primary cause of factor for this traffic collision was driving in a speed unsafe for the road conditions and the inability to negotiate the curve of the roadway. estimated speed that the first area of impact were 84 to 87 mph in the final
4:14 pm
estimated speed when the vehicle struck the tree was 75 mph. there were no citations issued and there no signs of impairment. tmz was first break details of the crash report and michael babcock of tmz joins me down live this afternoon and boy michael that data recorder inside the suv revealed a lot of information about what happened that day back in february. hey heather, thanks for having me. yeah, a lot of information and it zraly astounding to think about it. i mean, i was just on that road about a week and a half ago had there and it is it zilly, and it's curvy and just the. lot of tiger woods driving 85 miles an hour and trying to keep that car on the road. is it zhar to imagine it is a again it's a very it's a treacherous stretch of the road, and i don't think anyone could have kept the vehicle on that road, let alone an suv like tiger woods was driving and you heard with the sheriff said there he first made contact with the median
4:15 pm
going 85 miles an hour. then he ends up, you know, driving about 150 more feet before striking a tree, ripping the routes out of the ground. going? 75 miles an hour. and when you take all that into account, you have to say, even with the really serious, lower leg injury that tiger's sustained, you got to say that he's lucky that he's alive. it was that serious of an accident. yeah woz. i mean, it could have been a lot a lot worse, michael, though one thing that we don't know is if tiger woods made a conscious effort to try to avoid this crash, that's something that the. the black box doesn't reveal. yeah, unfortunately, we have some answers, but i don't think that we have the whole picture here. i mean, for some reason, the sheriff's department did not attempt to get a warrant to see tiger woods phone now what that would have been able to show them is whether or not he was texting or he was making phone calls before he got in the accident. and like you said he did not press the brake, and in fact, he actually kept applying the
4:16 pm
gas. the accelerator through the crash in the. moments are second before he actually hit that tree. now the sheriff did throw a theory out there, and they said that maybe tiger in a panic actually tried to hit the brake, but instead hit the accelerator. that was the theory that they threw out there, but still it it doesn't paint a complete picture. also we know the day of the accident when tiger was in the hospital, the sheriff's department again they failed to apply for a warrant to draw blood from tiger woods s o. we don't know if he was on anything that might have impaired his driving tiger woods and his reps have been adamant in saying that absolutely not. he was completely sober, and the sheriff has said that there are no signs of impairment. no bottles of alcohol in the car or anything like that, but still, if they would have drawn that blood, it would at least showed that tiger didn't have anything in his system. and i think that actually would have been beneficial for tiger. because now without that information, there is a cloud over his head. there's just
4:17 pm
there's a cloud of suspicion from people out there who believe that this could not just have been an accident and speed could not have only been been the only factor that caused it. so again. we have some answers, but we don't have the complete picture and unfortunately, i don't think that we ever well yeah, one thing, though, that we do know michael is that tiger woods will not be cited for any sort of traffic violation here, right and again, the speed limit is 45 miles an hour and he was almost double the speed limit. but the sheriff said, taking into account that nobody else was. injured in the fact that tiger has now had to go through great, you know, great bodily pain grow big injuries that he sustained that they will not give him a ticket. now there were people who have then said. that's a celebrity who was getting you know this selective treatment, the sheriff made a point. oh address everybody that was at that press conference today, and he looked out and said all of you out there if this were you who got in that crash, you would not be getting a ticket
4:18 pm
either again because nobody was hurt and tiger woods sustained serious injuries. whether or not you buy that or not, i guess that's for everyone to decide, but not even so much as a ticket to tiger woods. yeah, the sheriff also saying that in order for them to give a citation for let's say speeding at officer a deputy has to witness that speeding. so that was the that was the reason that we heard today michael babcock of teams he really appreciate it. tiger woods, of course, still recovering from those broken bones in his right leg. appreciate it, thanks. well tomorrow, president biden is set to announce executive actions to address gun violence. now they're expected to include tighter regulations, including a federal background check requirement for buyers of so called quote ghost guns. now those are untraceable weapons, often made from parts that are purchased online. california's among the states have passed laws requiring serial numbers on those guns. president biden is also expected to name gun control advocate david chipman
4:19 pm

vaccinated questions remain about whether states or businesses should require americans to have so called vaccine passports as fox's david lee miller shows us. this comes as health officials said today, the covid variant first discovered in the uk is now the dominant train here in the u. s. nearly a third of the u. s has received at least one covid vaccine shot as america's largest vaccination effort ramps up. on tuesday, president biden announced he's pushing states to make the vaccine available for all adults by april, 19th instead of may 1st and is more americans get inoculated. there are concerns about whether states or businesses will require vaccine passports for participation in certain events. biden administration has said it doesn't support vaccine passports at the federal level, and a number of governors are
4:30 pm
against the idea if somebody and a private business says, hey, i want to be able to see a card when you go in here to have a meal if you want to go to a ball game, okay, so be it, but government should not mandate that, texas governor greg abbott says he's prohibiting government agencies in his state from requiring proof of vaccinations. just some extent it is a violation of people's freedom to force them. to have a vaccine. meanwhile public health officials are worried about a possible fourth surgeon cases. they say new variants are spreading quickly and the latest uptick in cases is being driven by young people. and that's why they're working to prevent vaccine hesitancy getting trusted messengers be they clergy sports figures, people. at the community trust and look up to better articulate the need and the importance to get vaccinated. more than half of americans age 65 older are fully vaccinated against the virus in new york. david lee miller fox news.
4:31 pm
while some states are implementing bands on vaccine passports, california is moving forward with the plan to require vaccinations for people who want to attend to certain events. starting on april 15th. the state will require those attending big indoor entertainment venues to show proof that they've had their shots, public health officials say. initially the vaccine card will service proof, but eventually they say the program will be digital. alabama is lifting its statewide mask mandate on friday, republican governor kay ivey said that daily coronavirus case numbers are some of the lowest in a year. however a mandate will remain in place in the cities of birmingham and montgomery. on monday, vaccinations were opened up to anyone 16 and older in the state. alabama ranks last in the u. s for people who have at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine. the european union's drug regulators. as it found a
4:32 pm
possible link between the astrazeneca coronavirus vaccine and a rare type of blood clot. however it said the benefits still outweigh the risks and recommend that vaccinations should still continue an adult's last month, many countries temporarily halted the use of that vaccine over this very rare issue. us regulators have not yet approved this particular vaccine for use here, are so for those of you who haven't received the vaccine yet, reese pictures that you see san francisco one of here from you. they even they will even pay you rather for your time on the project that's called the building. optimal antibodies study. 20 guan is the clinical research coordinator for the study at ucsf. they want to thank you so much for taking some time with us this afternoon. yeah thank you for having so you're giving me this opportunity. for sure. now you are investigating how things like age sleep, stress and emotional well being affect the vaccine. are these known to cause issues with other
4:33 pm
vaccines. yeah s oh, there's a lot of evidence from the flu vaccine that shows that people of older age are not as protected as people who are of younger age from the flu vaccine, and also things like insufficient sleep or sleep quality. um and psychosocial stress off also affect the amount of protection that people receive from the flu vaccine and their anti body response, so we're really interested in examining the link between psychosocial stress aging and the covid-19 vaccine response. that's gonna be very interesting. so how many people are you looking for? and what will the study need them to do during it? yeah we're looking to enroll about 600 people from the bay area. anyone was willing to travel to our. mission bay campus for the first what'd raw on the subsequent blood draws? also here in san francisco on by pretty much participants just fill out an online screener, and then they'll complete a baseline questionnaire if
4:34 pm
they're still interested in participating, and then they'll also come in for a blood drop before their vaccine. and then once they get their vaccine, they'll be completing daily diaries for about seven days. and then if, depending on whether they get one of the two does vaccines the one dose one if they get too does vaccine they'll come for follow up blood draw at about one month after the second maxine or one month after the only dose of the johnson and johnson if they received one of the windows vaccines on ben another six month follow up that's following up at six months after the second dose or six months after that, the only dose if they get johnson and johnson, so it runs all together about six months for everything, and you only come to the campus of certain about times everything's done online. it sounds like most things were done online, other than the blood draw that's done on our campus, all right, and so since money is often a big motivator in all of this, what do folks
4:35 pm
get in exchange for their time? yeah people get up to $300 of compensation for completing all parts of the study so that the compensations up to $300. and so is there anything that the person who volunteers? is there anything that they just can't have the vaccines? are there any other requirements? yeah there's s o. they can't have taken any doses of any vaccine yet. um, and they cannot have and. uh me, um, autoimmune disorder. um and i highly encourage people who are interested to visit our website. ucsf boost dot or toe. find out the exact eligibility. um but other than that, i invite everyone to take the screener to see if they're eligible. yes 600 people who are looking for it, since you know everyone's getting vaccinated. there's still so much we don't know about about the vaccine and
4:36 pm
we're still going through a wave of people's particularly young people who were getting the virus now, so there's still a lot going into this just because the vaccine is that doesn't mean we're all good to go just yet. so you wanna go on clinical research coordinator for the building optimal antibody studies at ucsf. thank you. so much for your insight today and just for more information on how you can participate in the study. sure long on the ktvu dot com and look under the web links section. well, coming up next. here on the floor, you two kids under fire the concerns over content and ads and what parents can. do to better protect their children, and a very a weather tracking a bit of a cooler breeze today, but we have warmer temperatures. as we head into the weekend. we'll have the forecast update coming up. plus, guess who's under the mask is just part of the fun play the fox super eight mass singer sweepstakes and you could win your share of to hunt

you two kids, they're looking into the company's advertising practices and whether it's doing enough to protect children from ads as well as inappropriate content. joe jerome of the nonprofit common sense media joins me now live this afternoon and thank you so much joe for being here. explain to viewers exactly what you kids is accused of doing here. thank you, heather. so i think with this letter highlights is that lawmakers nationally and even in sacramento are increasingly concerned about how tech companies monetize our attention. the idea is with youtube, kids, that sort of hook kids when they're early,
4:40 pm
get them watching a lot of videos, and i think lawmakers air really concerned. what does that mean for kids in terms of their ability to stay focused and to consume a lot of media? uh you know, the youtube mothership is sort of a mess. it's endless streams of videos that feed folks extremism, all sorts of problematic content, and i think youtube kids was pitched as a better version of that, and i think today we're sort of seeing congressman not entirely sure that that's the case. yeah as you mentioned congress, using some strong language here, saying that silicon valley companies, especially those in in this type of providing this type of service are are in their words. looking children on addictive tech products from a young age. so what can you two kids do better here? well so i think the reality is ultimately need to understand the business model here, um, congressman krishnamurthy is really concerned about longstanding issues that folks have had with youtube things like
4:41 pm
manipulative auto play. um, hugh, like, basically prioritizing quality quantity over quality, and you're always gonna have that sort of challenge with ad supported platforms. they're going to present issues for kids, but i think the real issue here is that quality or that quantity over quality issue to use. ah tek buzzword. the issue is scaled. youtube wants tons and tons of videos, and that volume is huge, thousands and thousands of clips taking up you know millions of hours, and they're just there's none of humans that can look at this and ensure that the content that's being fed kids on youtube kids is actually appropriate. okay so what can parents do to try to better monitor the content that our kids are consuming? that's the $64,000 question. i mean, let's be honest and let's give everyone a sort of pat on the back. there's no silver bullet here. um you know, i think we had common sense think laws need to be passed. but in the meantime, you know, common
4:42 pm
sense thinks that parents need to view themselves as sort of media mentors. you sort of have to get involved with what your kids are watching. it's important to sort of talk things through with them. like what are you searching for on youtube? kids what did you learn from these videos? is there anything that made you? you know, that was weird. order made you feel uncomfortable. we think it's really important to sort of help kids subscribe to channels and follow certain videos that they have positive experiences rather than just sort of following, endlessly recommended feeds. it's really essential that parents sort of help their kids develop digital literacy skills, and that's it. it's hard. yeah, yeah, it certainly is back, though, to what congress is doing. obviously this letter was the first step. they have requested a lot of information from youtube kids, do you think. think that ultimately some new legislation will will come out of this. well absolutely on. you know, this is just part of a pattern that we've seen out of lawmakers in washington d. c
4:43 pm
