where it's linked 27 cases of the omicron varied to travel from the west african nation. and just one year ago the covid 19 pandemic, prompting a mass cancelation of nearly every public holiday event in gathering across the bay area this year are very different story. winter festivities are back in a big way. but now there's growing concern about this newly discovered omicron variant and how it may affect the holidays. good to muzak sauce, driving the newsroom with the latest zack. yes so far. health experts i spoke to certainly keeping a close eye on oh, macron, but at this point, comfortable with the idea of holiday celebrations going ahead. this is the number of area communities marked the season with tree lighting ceremonies. and with that mall goers young and old, treated to the return of a favorite holiday tradition. the shops a tan france sitting a 30 ft tree, a glow in san bruno. good to be out. you know we were at home for a very long time. so it's nice to come out. we're here to support my daughter. so it's

issue travel bans to and from several south african nations, with only a few exceptions. meanwhile, the alameda county health department says it's identified five cases of the omicron variant tied to a wedding in wisconsin. health officials say all five people are vaccinated and only mildly symptomatic symptoms, which dr gandhi says are indicative of early data suggesting that those who are vaccinated and affected with macron appeared to display more mild symptoms than those with delta. still she says she is concerned about how quickly oh, macron has spread as i think that that it is either as transmissible or maybe even more transmissible, urging those who remain unvaccinated to get the shot and those who are vaccinated to enjoy the holidays . exactly what most in this crowd say they plan to do. it's been a long, two years. i think for a lot of people and. just to kind of be able to get out and be amongst other people and kind of feel festive and sort of back to normal ish, i guess is a good feeling for us and probably a lot of people. and so far, only
