dion: san francisco announced the first omicron count -- case in the united states yesterday and health officials say it's likely there are already more cases in the bay area. stephanie sierra spoke to experts about what we can expect. stephanie: health officials stress there are no immediate plans to impose additional restrictions at this point. we simply don't know enough about omicron yet. but other experts say preliminary data from south africa suggests it could only be a matter of time. with growing fear, the omicron variant is not only here in the bay area, but could be more infectious than delta. we're left wondering, should we change our behavior? ucsf's doctor says not yet, but warns be careful. >> there's no evidence yet that it would be causing serious disease. that might change. stephanie: dr. john moore is a professor of immunology and microbiology at cornell.
stephanie: he's been following the latest reports on omicron coming out of south africa. >> they're seeing evidence that it is more capable of infections are people who have recovered from earlier infections. stephanie: moore says unlike delta, infected patients in south africa are not having symptoms of loss of smell and taste. >> that alone would say there's something funky about this variant. stephanie: omicron came out of nowhere in november and makes up 60% of the isolants in south africa. but it's unclear how that would transfer to the bay area. >> south africa is a hard, hard example to draw from because the vaccination coverage is so low. it's only 21%. and there's a lot of people with hiv infection, uncontrolled hiv infection in south africa. stephanie: as dr. george rutherford points out, there's still too many unknown variables to determine if omicron will be more deadly than delta, but added if in the weeks to come , the data shows otherwise, it's very possible some restrictions will be back that may reduce the
chance of death and hospitalizations. >> if that means having more outdoor masking, then i'm sure they would do it. stephanie: for now, the main focus -- >> and we need to be moving quickly to get people boosted. stephanie: he says if omicron makes up more than 1% to 2% of our cases, rising fast with waning immunity, he'll switch to wearing n95 masks, stop going out to eat, and think twice about traveling. but for now, it's too soon to tell if we'll get there. dion: thank you so much, stephanie. meantime, international travel is already being affected by omicron. abc 7 news reporter leslie brinkley looked into whether the news of the cases are prompting people to change their plans. reporter: one week ago on thanksgiving day, no one was talking about omicron. now it's on everyone's radar, especially as people anticipate flying to see families for the holiday season. >> there's people that are going
to travel no matter what. reporter: christopher dennis has looked -- worked in the luggage and travel business for years. among customers he talks to, he says travel within the u.s. will carry on. d since more hesitancy for people to do international? >> yes, definitely, because they can't afford to get stuck somewhere in quarantine for x amount of days. they are taking a risk. >> when we are traveling internationally, all those rules about quarantine, texting, vaccination status, that can all change in a moments notice. reporter: domestic travel is likely to be stable by comparison but dr. patel told me it is possible, possible that some states could reimpose restrictions or requirements like hawaii did. some are glad they are staying close to home. >> yes, i would like people to stay at home. be careful. respect others. >> it's very difficult because i know it has economic implications.
reporter: but others say omicron is not derailing their plans. >> those going to be new variants, you know? so i'm not going to stop life and seeing family just because of it. >> so we actually do have plans to go out of state for the holidays. and we're going to be with family members. we are vaccinated. i got my children, who are now able to be vaccinated. reporter: will they change what they do in airports and on planes? >> i probably will be a little more uptight with our children, making sure we're washing our hands, sanitizing, keeping our masks on. >> what are you going to do? as long as this virus exists, it's going to morph. it's going to change. reporter: in walnut creek, i'm leslie brinkley. ama: investigating a new smash and grab robbery tonight late today inside he san jose. officers say four masked suspects entered the business with hammers and started smashing display cases.

he suffered serious head injuries and a blood clot, which required drilling into his skull. according to documents, the perpetrator spent seven months in jail and was released on mental health diversion. a victim services advocate for the da's office claimed him, who speaks only, cantonese wanted him for his perpetrator, something his family says is simply not true. >> when they wanted to reach out, it's all because of the story you did. ama: he told us in march he wanted a strict punishment for his attacker. the das office told me today in a statement that an interpreter was always available and that they were not aware of the misunderstanding until months later. >> i asked him point blank myself, and my dad asked him, as well. he said he'd never said anything close to that. ama: we learned in court today ramos hernandez was arrested and convicted of a misdemeanor. the das office says because of this, they requested the court terminate the health diversion. he alleges the district attorney's office never notified

it closing. it's the only thing left from when they rebuilt this thing. cornell: the cvs store is located inside the marin gateway shopping center. >> a lot of people come to the store. i don't understand. there's a lot of seniors that come get their medication here. cornell: cvs declined to say why it's closing the store, but in a statement to abc 7 news, a representative said we have made the difficult decision to close. the closure of this store is not a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our employees. in fact, our colleagues will be given the opportunity to transition into comparable roles at other cvs locations nearby. store officials say prescriptions will be transferred to the cvs pharmacy inside this nearby target store. but community advocates say it's not the same. >> it's just pitiful. it's just another one gone down. and while, i mean, look how desolate it looks. cornell: marin city family outreach advocate says her underserved community deserves better, now left with fewer shopping options.

resources for the lack of assistance. that left the impression they 'd have to take out loans. >> we ask, is it equitable for students experiencing homelessness to be asked to further their debt to the education system when they cannot even afford proper housing after the thousands of dollars spent to pay for school? david: the associate vice president believes the complains are not valid. an eight-member office has been crated for students to apply for help. a food pantry has also been created. >> we do not turn students away. if they need assistance, we will help them. we will work with them. if it's housing assistance, food assistance, financial literacy, financial support, we definitely are prepared to bring students in and work with them. david: there is one element of concern. what happens next month and when some of the student leaders of the student homeless alliance graduate? the university says it's committed to continuing to fulfill the needs of student. at san jose state, david louis,

we move along to the forecast animation for tonight and overnight hours will have an increase in fog, some high clouds passing through, as well. skies mainly bright tomorrow, even with the presence of high clouds. on we go to low temperatures tonight, mainly mid to upper 40's, but much chillier among lakeport and ukiah. much of the two counties will be under a frost advisory from midnight until 9:00 p.m. tomorrow. frost is likely to form in some places as some temperatures will be as low as 33 degrees, just a degree above freezing. that chilled will quickly dissipate in the morning hours. by midday tomorrow, we expect high temperatures in the north, mid-to-upper 60's. in the areas, highs in the mid to upper 60's, as well, mainly mid-60's along the bay shoreline and 60's up the coast. the forecast animation, looking ahead to the weekend and early next week, we expect a weak cold front this week through monday. it could produce some light
rain, or as the national weather service described it, aggressive drizzle between 9:00 a.m. and early evening hours. we don't expect much in the way of measurable rain from that system. in fact, the outlook calls for rainfall totals to be around .01 to .02 inches at most. i would like to see it be a bit more aggressive than that. slight cool down by just a few degrees on saturday, but mainly clear skies. on sunday, mainly sunny, milder again. it cools down sharply, increasing the transfer drizzle. the best chance of measurable rain in the next -- chance for drizzle. the best chance of measurable rain in the next days is thursday. dion: northern california woman is urging pregnant women to get back stated. -- get vaccinated. the story may be more persuasive. >> hope will never be silent. on lisa steps harvey milk spoke

doing that right now. this may be a time to get some insurance. there are some significant covid-19 policies to cover everything from potential quarantine to medical expenses to canceled tours. and with the new rule requiring negative test results before coming back home, you might want to think about this now. >globetrotters were just beginning to come out of isolation when the new variant rock a fresh set of travel restrictions. and experts say be ready for even more rules during the holiday travel russia had. -- rush ahead. >> we are walking into the next six weeks of uncertainty. there's a lot of last-minute decisions being made. a lot of restrictions are put in place by many countries. michael: a travel insurance ceo says some countries may enact new restrictions or even close borders if the new variant spreads. new rules already require passengers to show negative covid test within 24 hours of their flight back to the u.s.
>> this is something that they need to plan and they need to start as soon as possible. wherever their destination is, to book their appointments asap. because this is a requirement and you will not be getting on a plane coming back home if you don't have your proof of negative covid-19 tests. michael: a positive result could mean being stranded overseas in quarantine. border restrictions may be losing money for tours, lodging, and transportation. however, many companies offer specific covid-19 travel insurance. if you're going overseas, check for policies that cover expenses in case you are quarantine, medical coverage in case you get sick from covid, cancellations for lodging, tours, transportation, and airfare. and finally, look for policies that let you cancel for any reason, such as not wanting to travel during the covid surge. >> from what we're seeing, people are still continuing with their travel plans and they will see how it goes and what this is
going to end up being. michael: now one thing that's still to be announced, what type of rapid test will be acceptable within that 24 hour window before you come back home? now, i'll keep checking and i'll let you know so you'll be ready for when you travel, hopefully through this holiday. we need to get this answer quick. dion: no kidding. michael, thanks.

leading to that price pressure. kay: when goods are being replaced by cheaper crops. >> other tree crops, too. they're less costly to manage on a day-to-day, yearly basis, and less costly to establish, as well. kay: for trevor, the glass is half-full. >> i have not raised prices yet. kay; as he looks to the vine for any hint on how 2022 may flow. >> there setting that fruit. kay: in lodi, kay kay kay kay ky spencer: i'm doing my best to support the white economy. let's put it that way. i'm patriotic. overnight, we can expect an increase in high clouds and fog. in fact, there will be foggy areas in the morning commute. , tomorrow will be a bright mainly sunny day, temperatures in the mid of her 40's. ice tomorrow up to about 60 near the coast.
in the in the areas, we'll see upper 60's tomorrow, far cry from the 70's we saw yesterday. here's the accuweather 7 day forecast. temperatures drop a few degrees on saturday, but we'll have bright skies, still brighter and sunny, a little bit milder. clouds increase monday. that's a chance of some sprinkles. a better chance of measurable rain and some showers as they move through the area. dion: spencer, thanks. ama: we have larry beil here tonight talking some football. larry: yes. russell wilson has driven the 49ers absolutely crazy over the years. those days may be over by sunday night. the niners try to put seattle out of their misery and the one man who has provided extra motivation for george kittle next in sports.

announcer: now, abc 7 sports with larry beil. larry: good evening. it was a rude awakening for the royer -- warriors. three match is tomorrow night at chase center. steve kerr frustrated on the bench in phoenix, watching the warriors just turn it over all night long. now, the sons did a great job on steph curry. they use their size and their length. that forced the best shooter on the planet into a 4-21 night. he was named western conference player of the night. look for a strong bounceback tomorrow night. >> you know, any time you play
against a great defense, you can't get lazy. and i thought we were a little bit lazy in some of our execution. and a little careless at times, too. we had all those turnovers. and again, phoenix caused a lot of that. >> it's a good benchmark for us early in the season. there's a lot of games left so it's a good test to see where you're at as a team. we test ourselves against one of the best. larry: the sons went to the finals last year. cal dance six with three and a half to go, but they take the lead. jailer curry, coast-to-coast, 71-70, curry with 15 points. 20 seconds left now, cal is down -- sweet dish! what proves to be the game-winner. cal, 73-72. they're 6-1. the cal men 12 play in about a half-hour. on football, 49ers have won three straight, while the
struggling seahawks have won three games total. but one of those games was at levi's stadium on the first week of october. seattle in freefall, lost six of seven since then. russell wilson missed three games because of a broken finger, had surgery. he's back now but kind of struggling. the niners favored by three and have points on the road, which is unusual. it was george kittle's dad that came up with a stat that will be motivating him sunday. >> something that stood out to me is they won 16 out of the last 19, which is not acceptable. not everyone here has been a part of all those games, obviously, but that's still quite the streak. the only way to work your way against that is to win games. and this week gives us an opportunity to make it 16-20. >> howdy know that stat? that how do you know that stat? -- how do you know that stat? >> my dad told me that one. larry: is a great player, but it
never ends with the box receiver. now he's been suspended for violating covid protocols, believing he supplied a fake vaccination card. the lockout began officially last night in the first workout -- work stoppage since the 1994. strike this means no players can get signed or traded or even work out their own to sillies. the big issue -- i know this is going to shock you -- money. and who gets most of it when the sparring begins? >> the lockout is part of the process that's designed to move the parties towards an agreement. >> our positions were not a surprise. they did not come out of the proverbial left field. our concerns have been voiced for the last few years. larry: if you look at what we have been through the past almost two years now, with the worldwide pandemic, i cannot think of anything more tone deaf than major league baseball owners and players fighting over
how to divvy up billions of dollars. it's mind-boggling, but here we are. and here's the thing. until spring training comes around in february or march, don't even worry about this because they got time to get it settled. but they got to get their head straight. clearly, this is a bad luck. dion: we do have other things to worry about. larry: just a couple. dion: larry, thanks. ama: coming up tonight, at 8:00, and abc news special, alec baldwin:. unscripted then don't miss abc 7 news at 11:00. you can watch all our newscasts live and on-demand on the connected tv app available for apple tv, android tv, amazon fire tv, and roku. dental the app now and start streaming. that is going to do it for this edition of abc 7 news. we thank you for joining us. i'm ama daetz. dion: and i'm dion lim. for all of us here at abc 7, thanks so much for joining us. have a great night. we will see you back here tonight at 11:00.
