is, you know, it's disappointing decide the least. and here in this country, president biden is sticking to his plan to move forward with travel restrictions tomorrow. the white house released a photo late this afternoon showing the president meeting with his covid response team. as foxes. jackie heinrich reports tonight she talks about the new restrictions we may see in the future. president biden is now back at the white house, where he's receiving a briefing from dr anthony fauci, the latest on the ah mccrone variant . the biggest question is whether biden will impose any new travel restrictions as new cases are cropping up. around europe. are you considering europe having a meeting with my medical team as i get back to the white house mortar say so far, no cases have been identified in the u. s but white house chief medical advisor dr anthony fauci said he would be surprised if it wasn't here already found, she says it's not yet clear whether new lockdowns will be necessary, but added that people should, as always
prepare for the worst. president. biden received some criticism for his decision to impose a travel ban but not enacted for a full week. and it goes into effect tomorrow. biden said that was the advice of his medical team, led by fauci fauci defended the logic travel bans when you have a highly transmissible virus never completely would get the virus to coming prevented from coming into the country. no way that's going to happen, but what would you can do is you can delay it enough to get us better prepared , and that's the thing that people need to understand. right now. u. s health officials are still working to determine whether a micron evades protection from vaccines, but the white house is still pushing americans to get their shots and boosters. national institute of health director dr francis collins says the vaccines worked against previous variants and boosters have given strong protection against problematic variants like delta, given that history, they expect the current vaccine means will most likely be sufficient, saying they remain the best line of defense. if there's a lesson here, it's come on america. we have missed
the chance to be at a much higher level of vaccination across the country that would put us in a stronger position. if chrome is one more wake up call, then let's wake up yesterday, president biden also said he does not expect to impose any new vaccine mandates despite existing mandates being tied up in the courts. uninterrupted jackie heinrich fox news, california's public health officer, issued a statement today on the macron variants, saying quote we are doubling down on our vaccination and booster efforts to ensure that all californians have access to safe, effective and free vaccines that can prevent serious illness and death. ktvu is james tourist picks up our team coverage of the variant after speaking with travelers in the run up to tomorrow's new restrictions for summit sfo. it's time for the trip back home after a thanksgiving break, and for some. more covid-19 news has been on their minds. have you heard at all about the omicron variant of the couple man is her

step at a time. travel experts say, brace for that possibility it take a wait and see approach you want to say, super informed ? stay aware of the news of the day. be aware if you have reservations in place. keep an eye on them. if you know it's not impossible for airlines to switch the timing on. upcoming reservations as demand waivers up or down. none of the bay area airports, including sfl have any direct flights to parts of southern africa. but many do go to parts of europe, where countries are slowly detecting more cases of covid-19 linked to the new variant. though some frequent fliers say the vaccine and boosters make them feel safe enough to go anywhere. we have had our vaccinations. we've had our boosters. we had a negative test. so that'll get us to our destination in san francisco. i'm james torres, ktvu fox two news. and a reminder now use our website and app to stay plugged into developments tied to oh, macron. our digital coverage

tells us more and more people are doing most of their spending online. black friday isn the king. it used to be for retailers. it's not even really just a day anymore, with sales starting in store and online weeks earlier, while black friday foot traffic was down, compared with pre pandemic levels, it was up from last year, perhaps signaling some brick and mortar nostalgia after nearly two years of shopping, online online sales actually fell for the first time friday, according to adobe analytics. retailers racked up $8.9 billion in cyber sales this year. compared with nine billion on the same day in 2020. people were worried about supplies in the last two months, and we saw it in a big jump in retail sales that came earlier than a lot of people expected. a major test comes tomorrow in order to break this cyber monday. record set in 2019 consumers will have to spend over $9.4 billion the national retail federation expects holiday sales from november to december to rise 8.5 to 10.5% over $843 billion. that too, would set a record for year
over year growth. but fox news contributor jonathan hoenig has some doubts. inflation they always say that it's a silent text, but people exactly are feeling it because as their wages are growing up, inflation is going up. even faster supply chain issues have also given retailers a lot to make up for tomorrow as many large chains have been forced to spend more to meet demand while dealing with loss of sales due to low inventory. and labor shortages to boot. consumers may also be eyeing up markdowns that aren't as deep as they used to be, especially when factoring in that sale prices are falling on top of items that are already for expensive. in washington, alexandria off fox news. well despite the convenience of shopping online, there will always be people who still like to browse the shops. i like shopping in person a lot more than online. um. and i think it's nice just being able to actually see what you're getting. coming up a little later this hour. ktvu elissa harrington checks in with shoppers about their concerns with online shopping this ho it was a pretty
nice day. today and saturday. just beautiful weather. beautiful sunsets like the one behind me the last couple of days and temperatures like these . we were in the seventies today again. 73 morgan hill 71 in san jose. guess what happens tomorrow? same thing about the same temperature, maybe a little warmer and fairfield and conquered maybe upper sixties low seventies there. 17 pacifica 70 in san mateo. that's today. i think tomorrow i'll be about the same. there might be a little patchy coastal fog tonight, but not very much. i think it's gonna be nice at the beach is turning mid sixties there, so the pattern is a stable one, and it's a locked pattern. it's blocked and there was just not moving these things usually. migrate through. so when you get a high pressure like this or a low when the high there's easily a low out here and in the high and then the trough, right that's in the jet stream. well, that all sort of migrates usually so the high migration and on the other side over here is another trough, right? but that's not happening. this pattern is stuck. and so we are with this dry, um, unseasonably dry and unseasonably warm weather for the rest of this
week, fred. frankly, i don't think there's even a shot for rain. and this is a long range model and you can see it. i just send everything to the north. so there's monday, tuesday, wednesday and you see, look at the gesture. amuse man. that's way up there. that's that's not right. that's typically july. you see the jet stream that far north. it's very far north. it's been pushed up there and it stays up there through this weekend. and so with that in mind, we have more mild to warm weather cool overnight. when just no rain. that's the big thing for me, and there's the live shot at san francisco. beautiful night out there. temperatures will be in the low forties for the most part, mid forties. well low forties in the coolest spots, maybe upper thirties and then some mid forties in places like san francisco and oakland and san jose. so a beautiful night. it's gonna be a really beautiful day tomorrow and the rest of this week so when i get back, we'll get specific. there are some fluctuations each day as we go through time, and then we'll go peek out out in the far distant look for some rain in the long range models. all right, that sounds good. you then bill. top
