4:00 pm
should still be wearing masks outdoors. why one bay area doctor says it's time to reconsider. plus it is official caitlyn jenner is running for california governor what the former olympians chances are in unseating governor. newsom in a potential recall election from ktvu. fox two news. this is the four and welcome everyone to the four on this friday afternoon. i'm heather holmes and i'm alex savage. we have big news on the vaccine front to tell you about just within the past few minutes. u. s health officials have decided to lift the pause. on johnson and johnson's one shot vaccine dose. this comes after a cdc panel recommended today that it is safe to do so ourself has the latest information on this decision. jesseetg you mentionet broke up a little while ago hours of debate, which centered
4:01 pm
on the risk versus the reward of continuing to use the j and j vaccine. i speak today to you with hope and concern friday, the 15 member cdc advisory committee on immunization practices gave hours of testimony online. issue resuming use of johnson and johnson. single dose covid-19 vaccine. this pause has been effective in increasing awareness of the rare and serious defense. april 13th. the federal government ordered a pause in the use of the drug. at that time, six women developed brain blood clots. now a total of 15 cases are under investigation with one person having died so far, there are already two vaccines out there that do not have this problem as far as we know. so i think if this was the only vaccine out there, we would be answering. a very different question would be dealing with something very different. south bay health officials say a lack of the j and j drug has not impacted their overall vaccine supply. we will, of course,
4:02 pm
embrace whatever guidelines and recommendations that a c i p provides to us national experts debated to recomms worrying and explicit warni, saf death is infinite testable compared to the thousands of lives that can be saved by using their vaccine. the vaccine provides access to people who are under served as well, a certain populations that typically face barriers to help your services. i move that we in the end, the committee voted 10 to 4, with one abstention. remove the pause. i am concerned that, um, that the consumers and women in this age group in particular will not be adequately informed. committee members, saying they were relying on the c d. c and the ss to make smen know the they go to get
4:03 pm
covid vaccination. we live in san jose jesse gary ktvu, fox two news. jesse do we have a sense that this point about how long it is going to take tea? get those johnson and johnson doses back into service if you will, well, i know during the testimony, they said they wanted to get that fact list out to partner agencies. first it's friday afternoon here. it's already friday evening on the east coast, where these agencies are based, so i'm guessing they'll start this fresh on monday and hopefully have it sometime in the new week. alex. yeah, the sooner the better or it ktvu jesse gary reporting live force. thank you. well according to the cdc, more than 222 million doses of coronavirus vaccines have now been administered here in the united states and 91 million americans have been fully vaccinated now here in california more than 27 million vaccines have been administered. 44% of californians have
4:04 pm
received at least one dose and about 28% are now fully vaccinated. vaccines have now been administered to one million people in santa clara county. the county says it was able to do this through a network of partnerships. county health officer dr sarah cody says, with one million people vaccinated, the county can now see a clear path out of this pandemic. over one million of our county residents have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is phenomenal, and we need to take a moment and take a deep breath and really celebrate. this is a really big deal. cody says the county will continue to focus on equity to ensure that everyone in the county who wants a vaccine has access and can get a shot. right now. the cdc is considering a revision to its guidelines for mask wearing in response to the growing number of people being vaccinated in this country. cdc director rochelle wolinsky says
4:05 pm
her agency lift its masks at nearly all times when they're outdoorss she agrees wih president biden that the pandemic is far from over. and the white house press secretary says the president does not expect immediate changes in the current mask. guidelines is working and in discussions with our health and medical experts about what we need to do to get the pandemic under control, so i don't have any update on that at this point in time. well, they're certainly, though, is ah growing debate about whether it is still necessary for us to be wearing masks all the time when we're when we're outdoors, and to weigh in now is dr monica gandhi and infectious disease specialist at ucsf. dr gandhi. always good to have you on and good to talk to you. obviously we know the risk low n these outdoor settings. we also have a lot more people who are
4:06 pm
being vaccinated right now. what do you think? what is the argument for not requiring people to wear masks when they're outdoors? you know, i think they're two arguments. one is that exactly what you just said that the risk of outdoor transmission is extremely low. we have actually now for really great studies. one was 7224 people in wuhan, china, where they did very strict contact tracing one of the infection's was traced to outside 232,000 people in a irish study. and the risk of outside transmission is one in 1000. and then i review here from you see a seven also another one from university of canterbury. showing outside transmission is extremely well, that's one argument that our risk for outdoor transmission is very low. the second, i think is to restore trust in public health messaging. it makes sense to update guidelines. when you have science that shows you that the risk is so much lower and with such high rates of vaccination that you just advertised on
4:07 pm
they're going around around the united states. this seems like the time. get us that kind of extra hope to lift our outdoor mass mandates. and then we can think about the indoor once and we're all vaccinated. who wants to be vaccinated? do you think part of the reason that that health officials on the federal level the state level the local level are hesitant to lift these mask mandates is because maybe they're concerned that that some of these sort of nuanced approach is when it comes to mask wearing are just sort of more difficult for people to kind of wrap their heads around. and what about the concern that it it's sort of a slippery slope? if you will? where if you if you don't require mask wearing outdoors, people tend to let their guard down and then they don't take precaution. even when they're in more risky settings. you know, this is something i've actually been arguing in away from the beginning as an hiv doctor that we understand the public understands nuance and tiered messaging. if x, then x
4:08 pm
if why, then why, and so what that would mean is we actually all is human beings. no one we're outside. versus inside, and so the recommendation we have that mass candy. absolutely where, when you go , exercising passing people on the street unless your outdoor packed rallies yelling to not wear a mask, we will be able t understand this. the american public, i think is very nuanced. and i think your messaging to be honest increases trust in public health officials. all right. so let's talk about what are the most important factors that that someone should consider. you know, you mandates aside, you know, just for you know every person out there who's listening to this. what what should i consider when i want to decide whether to wear a mask outdoors or not? what are the factors that that i should weigh? you know, this is how it see it from the data so again, actually, there was another study that showed that just
4:09 pm
that breeze outside, you know, sort of the ventilation outside just versus the viral particles extremely quickly. so especially if you're exercising your standing around and small group, you're walking around. you're outside, you know, going from place to place. there is not any science that would say that we have to wear a mask. at that point where i would still have our mask wearing very intact is any endorse face absolutely any inverse face on ben when we get back to you, and we're not doing this right now, but if their rallies if there is something that you've decided to go to a rally, and there's. tightly packed people together, yelling. that's when i would advise mask wearing based on the data. okay. you're speaking of data did do you think that there should be specific threst that's vaccinated that that should lead to the lifting of outdoor mask wearing mandates? well, i
4:10 pm
think this is a great question. i mean, one thing is the w h o has never recommended mask wearing outside and this was on lee. if you can't distant three ft from each other so for the rest of the world that isn't the recommendation for the w h o. on the other hand, there are places in this country where the prevalence is still where we don't want it to be. the prevalence is worse, very low for covid-19 in california, with the lowest case counselor. any state in the country right now, so. you can think about, okay, let's not do anything to mess up anything in places where case they're still circulating, and maybe it's the places like california where the cases are so low where we say, you know, this gives people an extra impetus to get their vaccine on guy would also, i would also add this said, places that have a 40% 1st dose rate, which, of course, were much higher in california. all right, well, we will wait and see if the cdc changes its guidance here when it comes to outdoor mask wearing ah,
4:11 pm
quickly. dr gandhi. i wanna sort of shift, you know, shift gears a little bit here and talk about the big news that i'm sure you heard late today. just a short time ago, a federal health officials have decided to lift the paws on the. what were some of the considerations led to this deci, so i think some of the considerations to not eliminate this vaccine in our country is certainly homeless populations for difficult, reaps reach populations and also for kind of populations were in and out and the one dose strategy works. this has been in a very important advancement to have the johnson and johnson back seat. there are now that they've adjudicated further plots among women. it looks like that there were a few more so essentially like you just reported 15 thoughts. in women across eight million doses.
4:12 pm
if you are less than 50, that ri and then over 50. it's very it's lower. still about one in a million, so, adding a commentary to the vaccine. i think it's prudent because that's what we do for other drugs. if there's a rare side effect for any drug and in vaccine, we added to the label and it looks like women again. women who were younger, most of this is for this very bear fox, all right, well, we always appreciate your time and your insight as well. dr monica gandhi, infectious disease specialist at ucsf. thank you so much. have a nice weekend. thank you. yeah. new video this afternoon at the back of a police officer, throwing a team to the ground while responding to a call about an assault. the family says the team has autism coming up next we'll hear from police and a neighbor who saw it all happen. also big day for

announcement earlier today, and she says she will start campaigning next week. ktvu allie rasmus has more now on the republican who is looking to unseat governor newsome in a potential recall election in the fall. caitlyn jenner is joining at least three other democratic governor gavin newsom in a recall election expected to happen in the fall in her first statement as an official candidate, jenner hit on some of the talking points brought up by republicans in favor of the recall. she says, quote small businesses have been devastated because of the lockdown on entire generation of children have lost a year of education and have been prevented from going back to school. she goes on to say this isn't the california we know this is gavin newsom is california where he orders us to stay home but goes out to dinner with his lobbyist friends. julie haener describes herself as economically conservative and socially liberal. she is a lifelong epublican. any time we have the celebrities in
4:31 pm
prominent celebrities entering the race, they can help generate media coverage and that could bring some unpredictability and the 2003 california recall election more than 130 candidates ran a crowded field can improve the odds for long shot candidates. we only need a plurality of the vote, so you know someone with. you know, 40, or even less than that, theoretically, percent of the vote could actually win if there's lots of candidates on the ballot general was an initial supporter of president donald trump, but later criticized him for his anti transgender policies. mr trump's former campaign manager, bread par scale is also working with generous campaign, the lgbt q advocacy organization equality california responded to jenner's candidacy this morning, saying caitlyn jenner spent years telling the lgbtq community to trust donald trump. we saw how that tur her. the tweet goes on to say hard pass, stop the recall. gavin newsom of his whole strategy is really going to try
4:32 pm
to tie the recall to trump supporters and trump advisers ae extent that he can do that, i think is to his advantage, although donald trump. and more than six million votes in california. he remains deeply unpopular, generous expected to begin campaigning and travel across the state on a listening tour to meet with voters next week, allie rasmus ktvu fox two news. joining us now to talk more about this is lisa middleton, prop mayor pro tem of palm springs and the first openly transgender person elected to office here in california. thank you so much for being here. so how do you feel about generous announcement? i'm happy any time that someone in the transgender community steps forward and takes the leadership role, but i must say. being a host of a television program and doing social media post does not qualify you to lead the most complex and
4:33 pm
demanding state in the nation. so tell me some of the other reasons that you are not supporting gender. you mentioned her lack of experience. one other issues are you concerned about ex in the world.h a pandemic the likes of which none of us have seen in our lifetime. last year, we were dealing with wildfires that we had never seen before. in california. it's never a question of if we're going. have an emergency in our state. it's when and how that when that happens, we need someone who's experienced the government who knows who to call and knows how to take and get something done. she promises to be a candidate of solutions and to quote turned around this stage, wants to focus on helping small businesses hit hard during the pandemic. also addressing the learning loss by school closures during the pandemic, or are those issues that you can get behind? you know, there's sound an awful lot like another celebrity candidate
4:34 pm
that ran for office in 2016. we all know how that turned out. you ca so when you look at this recall effort, you mentioned that this does in fact, bring some notoriety if you will to the lgbt q community, but for you, it's just not enough. it is not enough. you need to be able to demonstrate over time that you condone elif for our community. it doesn't work to support donald trump on monday. condemn him for attacks on transgender children on tuesday and then hires adviser son wednesday and lisa. i want to go back to the recall effort. do you expect to see ah lotrt. how many people de have the last time? something like 203 100 people that got into the race? yes the republicans. they're trying to steal an election. you know, and enough here that they could
4:35 pm
never win straight upme has govd the state especially hard time. you're not gonna make friends with everyone he's had to make tough decisions. want somebody in a leadership position. who's willing to make those chuck for this decisions and take responsibility for them. lisa middleton really appreciate your time this afternoon. thank you. thank you. former california governor jerry brown is now weighing in on generous run for office and efforts to recall his predecessor alex michaelson. this host of the issue is which airs right here on ktvu and alex had a chance to ask a former governor brown whether he thinks this recall effort will be successful. alex joining us now live with more on what brown had to say, alex. good to see. good to see you,
4:36 pm
alex. i think the governor should hire lisa middleton. that was the best surrogate i think i've ever seen for him. souto talked with governor brown, who of course, knows the job of governor better than just about one who served four s as californiar running. here's what he had to say. whatever you have a recall of a governor, which is really unique in my life, and it's only happened once everybody and their brother is going to jump in when gray davis face a recall over 120 candidates jumped in, they all think. because this is an exciting moment. they're going to get some exposure. no, they won't for most part. hey, caitlin. general get some. but at the end of the day will come down to how people are feeling about the state and the stewardship of. governor newsome. so that's the big issue, and they'll be
4:37 pm
subside dramas, but i don't think that caitlyn jenner will a substantial night and i don't think she'll affect the outcome. the issues of big, were democratic state publics are almost not half the size and they're a lot of independence. so i think people gonna think about how their lives were going what they think. about the governor and my hutch at this point is that the governor has a very strong probability of being not recalled the fact that we're here just after closure, and of course, if in the recall election 50% of californians need to vote that the government's debris recalled if they don't question number two, which is who you would replace him with doesn't really matter. so the most important quest. should, of course, is, the governor recalled, and governor brown certainly thinks that his successor will not be alex.
4:38 pm
yeah, it seems like you have to look at the shifting dynamics of the pandemic here in california. you know when, when this recall effort started, we were. we were obviously ah, hotbed for cases, and california now has the lowest infection rate in the country that that is going to play a huge role in how this recall election plays out. yeah well, when the recall effort started, we weren't even in the pandemic. you know, the official process began before there was a pandemic and because there was a pandemic, the judge actually gave those getting signatures extra time to get those signatures, which some in the newsome camp think helped contribute to getting this on the ballot in the first place. on dsa so yes, very different situation than we were in in what we're in in january in october, november when we're likely going to have a recall election, most likely the entire state is going to be open. very good chance. we may
4:39 pm
not even be in mass anymore schools. they're gonna be back open and so the anger that we saw in december and january when so much was closed. will that dissipate as the financial situation? wait, wait and see how it plays up, but certainly jenner, throwing her hat into the ring here. all right. alex michaelson, host of the issue is right here on ktvu. always a pleasure. have a nice weekend. i will remind everybody you can catch alex's interview with former governor jerry brown. it's coming up this weekend on the issue is which airs at 5:30 a.m. sunday morning, right here on ktvu. questions about college during the pandemic. we talk with an expert about the upcoming fall semester and how students. can navigate the changes nice day around the bay area. more sunshine this afternoon temperatures came up over yesterday. but now we're going to see a turn for cooler

4:42 pm
acceptance letters and trying to plan out the future but because of the pandemic, ah lot of families are carefully considering whether to pay for a four year university whether kids might not get the traditional college experience. earlier i had a chance to talk with holly scheffler, the ceo and founder of arts, bridge and educational consulting firm. and i asked her if going to college right now is worth it. we recently surveyed students, parents and educators about this question this issue so first we spoke to high school students and their parents, two thirds of the high school students and 50% of the parents. do not feel like it's worth it to go to college from your bedroom or your dorm room.
4:43 pm
but college freshmen. we surveyed them as well. and they felt like 50 50. was worth it. and then we went back after the fact and said two college freshmen. what do you think? and four out of five said they would definitely do it again. would so you know you pay the high cost of a four year zanotti necessarily the same as what you would get in the past. but has that done anything to the number of high school seniors who are applying t universities across the country? it's such a great question. fascinating it's actually the opposite. application numbers are sky high with the. lack of the requirement to take the a c t or the s, a t and many students getting past fail grades. students are feeling like what that i must will apply everywhere. so as a result, the
4:44 pm
