perhaps, before we get past it as the governor says. these are counties where outbreaks are growing, at a concerning pace. really fast. including contra costa, santa clara and solano counties here in the bay area. the governor says four more counties are likely to be added in the next 24 hours. and local health officials say there is a good chance san francisco is among them. >> and we talk about building a better bay area after the pandemic. education of course is one of the big areas we are focused on, along with our health, economy, and changing workplaces. an idea of what the upcoming school year could look like for k-12 students and staff. this afternoon, public health leaders released detailed guidance, although there is no guarantee in-person classes will resume. how the pressure is on to prepare for the possibility of a return to the classroom. >> reporter: exploring in-person instruction, without increasing risk to covid-19. that's the goal behind this

case rates in the county. >> from the alum rock district perspective, we're not there yet. >> new guidelines also look at smaller class sizes, minimizing shared supplies, staggering schedules and activities. and removing furniture, to help physical distancing. in non-classroom settings, recommendations include assigned bathrooms, outdoor meals, and one-way walking areas. there will be no in-person extracurricular activities, like choir, band, or vocal cheerleading, due to risk. school athletics have yet to be addressed. so many questions causing concern. >> so what's going to happen in august 18th, first day of school for alum rock, is anybody's guess. >> there is much more to explore for the full document, visit abc 7 news.com and click on this story. in an jose, i'm amanda, abc 7 news. >> tonight, san francisco city attorney is coming down hard on catholic churches in the city they say are gathering illegally

and parishioners leading processions through the richmond district neighborhood, without face coverings. >> anything involving the holy mass, the priest and servers will not wear a mask. >> we met jared outside the star of the sea, where he is training to be a priest. >> we consider the holy mass be sacred and special, which shouldn't be tarnished by something that has a sort of human concern. and part of it, as well, is that we're just being rational about it. none of us have experienced any symptoms. so i understand if, you know, people are dying left and right. but they're not. >> as for the illegal gatherings. >> tons of people can go into grocery stores and be over 12 people indoors. is really insulting for practicing, faithful people. >> the city attorney gave the arch diocese one day to comply or risk restraining order. on tuesday, the arch diocese sent a letter saying the arch bishop notified his priests to comply with the health order. in san francisco, kate larson, abc 7 news. >> and covid-19 cases are surging at san quentin state prison. and tonight, there is now a

inside the prison, to out in the community. >> it's just a little concerning because we don't know, you know, how quickly this is going to spread again in a second wave. >> tuesday, we talked by phone with death row inmate anthony jones, who says things don't appear to be getting better. >> evidence, there's at least three to five people that goes man down that have to be taken to the hospital to get their vitals checked. or, you know, can't breathe or whatever the case may be. >> while the outlook doesn't currently look promising, county supervisors have written the governor for help. supervisor judy arnold is optimistic but keeping a close eye on the situation. >> we want to get this under control, like we did before. the worry is hospitalization. >> and officials here in marin county would like to see the situation taken care of at this prison facility, versus hospitals and other locations.
