5:00 pm
want you to know that i did an informal count two groups of 100, i found that in both of those groups they averaged about 15% of people wearing masks 85% not wearing masks, so to mask or not to mask again san francisco, seeing a significant surge in overall covid-19 delta variant cases as well as hospitalizations, though the surge is attributable almost totally to unvaccinated people. there is a danger of a small number of breakthrough cases amongst the vaccinated as well. sacramento county re adopts a mask mandate effective friday at a chinatown conference. mayor london breed hinted she's prepared to do what it takes in san francisco over 77% of people have been fully vaccinated, but we see this delta variants really taking shape, so we have to be
5:01 pm
diligent. we have to be concerned about what that means. but she struck a balance and as we recover, we want to make sure that we're not going backwards, then our businesses aren't closing down, and i do not personally think it is necessary. i think it's pretty unfortunate. i think we started finally feeling like a little normal again and people are out and about it. i think it's necessary. i think it is needed with the way we are trending and everyone has been in that position before one county away in san mateo county. masks are required in government buildings for now, but might have to widen that we look at the data. where is the data driving this? it's not a politician telling you where to wear your mask. we've got to be driven by the science, the san francisco chamber of commerce says its members to priorities are keeping everyone safe and staying open in order to do those two things. if it means i'm requiring masks or if it coming to
5:02 pm
work or entering the business, those are those are items that are open.. it's going to affect my business by limiting people end up coming in. it's going to cause people to kind of hold back up. certain percentage will stay home. the other major worry for san francisco, the bay area, california and the nation as a whole. is that this virus as it infects the unvaccinated actually spawn yet a new mutant variant, potentially even more transmissible and possibly able to defeat the existing that scenes that are out there and those who are vaccinated, reporting live. tom vacar ktvu fox two news and i can comfortably say no one wants to see that happen. tom. thank you so much. earlier this afternoon, president joeworkers to either t vaccinated or submit to regular testing. the president says the move is meant to stop the spread of the delta variant. katie was jesse gary continues now our team coverage on the ongoing fight against this
5:03 pm
pandemic. the nations two million federal employees now face a simple choice. shot in the arm or swab in the nose machine is spiking covid cases. they're going up. why because of this new form. this new variant called the delta variant in an attempt to stem the spread. president joe biden announcing all federal employees and contractors are now required to say if they've received covid vaccination, and if not where face coverings submit to testing up to twice a week. and see work related travel restrictions were never going to see the end the light at the end of the tunnel here with this covid pandemic unless we substantially improve our vaccination rates, experts and government officials say. new delta variant and overwhelmingly among those unvaccinated while some areas of the country have high vaccination rates, others lag, leaving half the populist unprotected. biden's move is
5:04 pm
seen as accelerating the number of shops in arms. it's a step in the right direction and often states and local jurisdictions they follow suit. california and new york have already implemented similar requirements on its state workers. google and facebook require returning office employees to be vaccinated. look, this is not about red states and blue states. it's literally about life and death. i think this is strictly a public health move. if anything, there might be a little bit of a legal spin off to this. i imagine some of the unions representing federal employees in some sectors may take issue with some piece of this. the federal law enforcement officers association, which represents fbi agents, and u. s marshals, released a statement which reads in part. forcing people to undertake a medical procedure is not the american way, and there's a clear civil rights violation. president counters freedom requires responsibility and protecting the nation from another full blown outbreak means as many
5:05 pm
people as possible need to get vaccinated. if you had high vaccination rates. we wouldn't be in this spot right now as an incentive to vaccination across the board, the president is proposing $100 vouchers and paid time off so that people voe all of its members are vaccinated and once the defense department to figure out a way to make that happen from members of the military in san jose, jesse gary ktvu, fox two news. we do notice more people getting vaccines here in california governor newsom tweeting today that more than 100,000 vaccines were put into arms across the state yesterday. that is the largest number of vaccinations in a single day in the state in the last three weeks, doctors have not suggested whether the surge of covid cases or an increase in so called vaccine mandates is behind the uptick. well getta cocktail at one of san francisco's many bars may require another step starting today, a new mandate from the san francisco bar owners
5:06 pm
alliance calls on bars to require proof of vaccination or negative covid test to come inside and drink alex savages in the newsroom with a look at how bars are handling all of this, alex well, andre, the bar owner alliance in san francisco says it polled its 500 members and found out a majority were on board to give this requirement a shot. that's in part because the city's bars have seen a recent increase in covid cases among fully vaccinated bar workers. the alliance says it has an obligation to protect bar workers and their families and offer safe spaces for customers the last year and a half has been particularly tough for the food and beverage industry because of the pandemic, hundreds of bars and restaurants have had to lay off workers cut hours or even closed down because of the lack of business, but not all are willing to turn away customers who don't have the proper covid vaccine documentation. we saw some bars near oracle park today, where proof of vaccination was not being checked. however, most people we spoke with said the rule is a good idea. have my proof on
5:07 pm
my cell phone, so it's very easy for me to provide that documentation. i'm all for it. absolutely all for it. you know what vaccination passes that doing in europe and stuff like that? absolutely should be done here right now to think about having to turn away people now that we're 100% capacity just is not not something that i'm willing to do. at this point. they mandated, you know, we'll figure out how to fix that. but at this point, we're letting everybody in each individual bar in san francis. cisco will be in charge of figuring out how to enforce these new rules. proof of vaccination or negative test results will not be required from customers who sit outdoors at any of those establishments. andre alright alex average reporting for us live in the newsroom. alex thank you, and you cannot escape the delta variant, a member of former president trump's covid-19 response team is pushing that idea tonight. anyone who's not vaccinated and who did not have covid. previously the delta variant is so c it. it is just a matter
5:08 pm
of time if you have prior immunity if you have prior immunity, you do have some protection, but more and more data are telling us that that protection is not so good against delta, remember, you can get the flu every year. it's not because your immunity isn't good. it's because the flu changes in delta is really a new strain. that is different than everything we've seen. ucsf infectious disease expert dr peter chin hung joins us later in the newscast. we'll ask him about this idea of being able to avoid infection if you are unvaccinated. with the first day of school less than two weeks away. in some communities, school districts are preparing for students to return to classrooms full time as scabies, rob roth found there will be some changes in store for both students and teachers. school districts throughout the bay area's say they're ready for the first time in almost a year and a half. it's back to in person classrooms. one parent of an oakland second grader, is
5:09 pm
thrilled. the first day is august 9th excited for her to be back in the classroom on campus with her, her teachers in person and her fellow students. there will be one key difference between now and pre pandemic students. teachers at anyone who enters a school in california will be required to wear a mask. we will be really keen about our safety protocols to continue to implement that and ensure that our students and families feel safe, just kind of accepted it, even though i think difficult up to be i would be okay with my daughter not wearing a mask. vaccines are encouraged, but they're not required to gain entry. vaccines are not available for students under age 12. some districts, including san jose unified are requiring regular covid testing of any staffer teachers who are not vaccinated. school districts will have air purifiers in classrooms and cleaning. protocols that were in place last school year will remain. we have definitely and instituted, uh, more stringent cleaning procedures, disinfection procedures than
5:10 pm
existed before the pandemic. no question about that. these days terms like learning pods, cohorts and hybrid instruction are pretty much gone from everyone's vocabulary. we no longer have to worry about the physical distancing. we no longer have to worry about masks outside. will, of course, follow the appropriate hygiene as we always would, but distance learning is still being offered as a separate independent study program, only a few 100 students in each of the districts we surveyed are choosing that option. the rest plan to come to class even if it's with mass. it will be different in that way. but everything else is what was and we are so excited to welcome our students. even with the delta very in health officials are recommending schools open in person, but rules and requirements could change. change as long as covid remains a moving target. rob roth, ktvu fox two news. group of parents suing the state over a mask mandate for kids in school hope that holding a rally today will
5:11 pm
convince the state to reconsider that policy. they gathered in san diego today, saying the policy will deprive kids have a full education. we know this. we don't need to be quarantining our kids every time they come down with symptoms of a cold and telling you have to stay home for two weeks because they're missing their education right and we don't need to be telling them that they have to wear a mask when they have no symptoms, and they're not sick and they're not likely to spread or transmit the virus or even get sick themselves. we know that our state leaders say the mandate is necessary, though, to help slow the spread of covid new at five, the alameda county da's office says it will not file charges against the man accused of holding a woman captive in his home and repeatedly raping her, investigators say after a thorough investigation, it was determined that the woman's allegations of kidnapping and being raped at an oakland home are unfounded. a source close to the investigation told ktvu. there were some credibility issues with a woman, the source says. the woman texted friends and visited a grocery store

lines are beginning to form again. at some covid testing sites. this is a testing site in fort lauderdale, florida today. some doctors think more people are getting tested because of the threat of the delta variant. you see a self ng joins us now with more on this thread an fort trump's covid-19 response team,
5:23 pm
saying that the varied is unavoidable. how and why is the delta burying so contagious than other strings? well entry the delta beer, and it's like lord voldemort in harry potter and we're the vaccine is harry porter's so evil is kind of very pervasive right now, given the large swaths of unvaccinated folks. the reason why it's so scary is because it produces so much virus that you can't really escape it. whatever works for you last year as an unvaccinated person won't work this year in terms of protection. 1000 times more virus produced in delta compared to the earlier versions of covid. so is this one of the distinct changes here the distinct differences between the traditional covid virus that we saw earlier in this one. the fact that it carries so much more that can be spread to other people. exactly there's just so much virus that, uh, just just by, uh um, factor of being present
5:24 pm
in march much larger quantities. uh probability speaking, you can't really escape it as particularly non vaccinated folks. not only that, but it's stickier as well. so it's not only producing more virus, but the mutation is at the point of attachment. to where the launching pad the way it's trying to get into the body. so that's both those things that make it particularly dastardly. and i know you're talking about this little crowns that we see on the virus. now. now the breakthrough. these breakthrough cases among the vaccinated does it keep you up at night as an expert in this field, doctor? it does because i think for two reasons, first of all from, uh, sort of confusion and, um, you know, causing a lot of, uh, damage and mayhem, so to speak. it's causing people to really evaluate how they navigate life. even in the hospital setting. we've had some employees who have been calling out sick. so
5:25 pm
is leading to a lot of people and contacts, staying home from work. um, it is not what we expected. um, we're seeing more people with who have been vaccinated. get covid, but it's more like a cold in those people. they're not getting seriously ill going to the hospital in large quantities going to the icu, requiring ventilator beds and they're not dying 99.6. deaths in the united states has spilled you to those who are unvaccinated. so what? what i want to know here is. the delta bear. is it more likely to already affect those who are immune to the disease? let's see. you got it last year and now we have a delta. very how does it affect that type of person? yes. so people got covid. naturally definitely not going to escape that delta because for two reasons, first of all, um there's a big range of how people respond to natural infection as much as a thousandfold. you just don't
5:26 pm
know who you are. and then, secondly, that immunity from natural infection wins over time even faster potentially than vaccine immunity, which is much more reliable and durable. so for both those reasons people who got covid before naturally can easily get it again and do poorly with it. mhm just very concerning all around. as we see these, these cases start to skyrocket again. dr peter trinh hung, infectious disease specialist at ucsf. thank you for your insight today. thanks, entree. still ahead tonight. some local business owners claim they are being unfairly sued for ada violations, and now they're fighting back protecting seniors attacks on asian americans, the new ambassador programcoming up. your cellphone may be the target of cybercriminals. the one simple step you can take to protect yourself from the hands.

moratorium, but that is set to expire just a few months on millions of americans who are behind on their rent may soon be looking for a new place to live. this follows the biden administration's announcement. the nationwide ban on evictions will expire on saturday. president biden would have strongly supported a decision by the cdc to further extend this eviction moratorium to protect renters at this moment of heightened vulnerability. unfortunately as some of you might know, the supreme court has made clear that this option is no longer available. the decision comes after the supreme court's 5 to 4 ruling that extended the covid moratorium through the end of july. justice brett kavanaugh, who was in the majority said he'd block any additional extensions without quote, clearer and specific congressional authorization. president biden strongly supports the program. providing relief for millions the president is calling on
5:35 pm
congress to act on another extension. quote without delay. we will continue. it was all of government effort to keep americans safe and house through the swift dispersal of emergency rental assistance to states and cities. the cdc put the federal moratorium in place last september to prevent tenants unable to pay rent. from being evicted during the pandemic at the beginning of july, 3.6 million were behind on rent down from 6.4 million in march. however landlords argue an extension is unnecessary as more people get vaccinated and get back to work in washington, david spun fox news now again, california has its own eviction moratorium. that is good all the way until the end of september. so this federal mandate does not apply to renters here in the state. jobless claims dropped last week. but here in california claims rose to their highest level since the state reopened back in mid june, according to the u. s labor department. 400,000 americans collected
