5:00 pm
this is a way to keep students safe and physically in the classroom. california will become the first state in the nation to mandate covid-19 vaccinations for all eligible students in grades k through 12. governor newsome's order adds covid-19 to the list of shots. students need to attend school in person to add to that list. the vaccination for covid-19. we intend to do that. once the fda as fully approved the vaccine, which will give us time to work with districts, the mandate will likely not take effect until next school year because it kicks in once the fda grants full approval to the vaccine for age groups in grades 7 to 12, then k to six ages. 12 to 15 are still under an emergency authorization. we want to get this thing done. we want to end this pandemic. we're all exhausted by it. and the purpose of this is to continue to lead and that space news that made the announcement from den in middle school in
5:01 pm
san francisco, he touted the state's low positivity rate and other mandates for health care workers, state employees and school staff. but newsom said there's work to do because just 63. a half percent of kids 12 to 17 have gotten at least one shot. 84% of all eligible received one dose. but for 12 to 17, we're not where we need to be. and so we hope this encourages, folks, uh, to get vaccinated medical, religious and personal belief exemptions will be available on vaccinated students will have the option of remote learning or independent study. a handful of districts, including oakland, west contra costa and piedmont, advanced mandates ahead of the state. newsome encouraged districts to move faster if they wanted. one size cannot fit all. with one caveat, and that is baseline expectations. and that's what we're providing here is a baseline expectation school mandates have been hotly debated nationwide, and newsom's announcement elicited
5:02 pm
a strong response from republican assemblyman kevin kiley, he said. at every turn, the governor has let his top special interest donors dictate pandemic policy. it is an abuse of public trust without precedent in our state's history. here's what else is in the order right now. will teachers in school staff are required to be vaccinated or get tested weekly once the requirement goes into place for students, grades seven through 12? all teachers and staff will need to be vaccinated. a negative test will not be an option. in the newsroom. gregory ktvu fox two networks continue to try and stop at the virus. all right, greg, thank you so much. well some people tonight are questioning the need for this student vaccine mandate. ktvu reporter henry lee picks up our team coverage of today's big announcement with reaction now to the new requirement across california schools. reaction to governor. new subs vaccine mandate for students is mixed. a group representing school boards welcomed his announcement. and it may sense to have a universal approach on this
5:03 pm
issue, and that's what the governor is doing in this case. troy flint, spokesman for the california school boards association, says newsom's announcement brings clarity to individual districts that patchwork of different regulations and mandates at the local level that we've been working under for the past 18 months. haven't been fully affective in trying to combat covid-19. for me. it's frustrating because you have a governor that's deciding a medical procedure. basically for all of our school kids, ryan's witelson has two kids in the san ramon valley unified school district. he says. he doesn't believe children are more at risk. it's not something i see being backed up by doctors by cdc by medical boards. i don't see this as a mandate. strong recommendations. 100% i think you should talk to doctor. there were only a handful of school districts in the bay area that already has some kind of vaccine mandate before the governor's announcement, among them oakland, hayward, piedmont and most recently, west contra costa unified. those without mandates have been following local and state guidelines. but now they say
5:04 pm
they'll follow newsom's lead. we will make sure that we are ready to implement those mandates when the final details are all ironed out. c j. kamut is superintendent of the fremont school district, one of the biggest in the bay area. he says, it seems clear any vaccine hesitation should be a thing of the past. now that the state seems to be moving forward with its mandate, and if that is the case, which it appears that it will be, i would encourage our families to get vaccinated as soon as possible. the timeframe for student vaccinations depends on age children. 12 and up are now eligible, and shots for younger kids could come soon. henry lee ktvu fox two news now the los angeles unified school district was the first district in the state to approve vaccine mandates for students. in fact, students 12 and older are facing in october 3rd deadline so in just a few days to receive a first dose of the vaccine if they want to be able to participate in any school of faith affiliated. extracurricular activity that includes all sports. only medical exemptions are allowed for students there in l. a in
5:05 pm
mid august, california became the first state in the country to require all teachers and school staff. be vaccinated or undergo weekly covid-19 testing, and that includes public and private schools, according to the state department of health. the requirement affects more than 800,000 employees. including about 320,000 public school teachers, and also applies to cafeteria workers, custodians and school volunteers. well the san jose police officers union and the city have reached an agreement on covid vaccinations for officers. today is a start of the city's vaccine mandate for its employees and the union said about 140 officers were threatening to leave the department over that requirement. the city and police officers association of signed an agreement. it says officers have until sunday to either be vaccinated or show proof of a weekly negative covid test. they can also submit applications for medical or religious exemptions. those who do not can be suspended for 40 hours without pay and could face being fired. nothing is
5:06 pm
perfect. we really believe that this does strike a balance again for our members and the protection of the community's. it's important that we have a very clear message all of our employees that we're serious about vaccination. san jose says about 92% of the city's 7000 workers are vaccinated, and the city of san francisco says it will soon start sending out letters of separation. two police officers and sheriff's deputies. who refused to be vaccinated. 366 police department employees are unvaccinated and the sheriff's department says 80 of its deputies are also still unvaccinated. sheriff paul miyamoto says the department is increasing its effort to try to get everyone their shots. but really emphasizing, even as we begin these processes these administrative processes because our people as are many of the health workers are in high risk settings in the jails and the hospitals, so they've been identified as the first hear of individuals. uh to have
5:07 pm
to be in compliance with the health order. san francisco city employees have to be fully vaccinated by october 13th or risk losing their jobs, teachers finding a vaccine mandate in new york city separate a setback tonight. according to the hill, the u. s. supreme court today rejected the teacher's request to take on their case. that rejection came without comment from the court. we are about to lose our jobs or professions. i've been a teacher for almost 10 years because i don't want this because i don't trust it, and that is just not acceptable. now yesterday, anti vaccine advocates want to separate battle in new york a judge their rule that the state must accept religious exemptions for healthcare workers facing vaccine requirements. right now, people who live and work near a ruptured water main and alamo are waiting for service to be restored that pipe gushed water for several hours this morning. getting his rob roth is live now in alamo, where
