all of this unfolds. >> reporter: yeah. good morning, marcus. i would imagine that all eyes right now on the city of san francisco of the right now we're waiting for mayor london breed who is expected to give specifics of what this new rule would entail, but what we know right now i can tell you is being reported by "the chronicle." so far a proof of full r one johnson & johnson shot against the coronavirus will be necessary. proof will be required for some indoor activities including bars, restaurants as well as gyms, and this mandate would be citywide. again, we're still waiting to see when this will officially go into effect and learn the specifics. will this apply to outdoor dining? will there be a deadline for the workers at the businesses impacted to receive a advantages own? as we reported before, new york city became the first to require proof of at least one vaccine for indoor activities. this is really monumental as you would be required to show proof of full vaccination. just spoke to an individual and
11:02 am
asked him what we were doing out here. would a card be okay, a picture, a qr code, what would be required? again, we're expecting mayor london breed to answer all of these questions. a lot of questions that we'll for the overreaching citywide mandate we'll hear more about in a matter of minutes. when we do, we'll pass the information along to you all. cierra johnson for "today in the bay." >> certainly a lot of eyes on the city. thank you. colleges are welcoming students back to their dorms on campus, with restrictions, of course. nbc bay area's bob redell is live for us at cal state east bay, and, bob what, kind of restrictions are we talking about here? >> good morning, marcus. cal state east bay has started moving in the 850 students who will be living in the dormitories located here behind me. as you can see this is very orderly. students have an assigned move-in time over the next three days of trying to space them out because obviously because of covid. before any student can move in
11:03 am
they must test negative for covid regardless of their vaccination status. for those who do not test negative in advance they must submit to a test in the parking lot. cal state allowed one person perdue and now they are allowing two per room and have reduced the capacity of the dorm buildings to 80% max so there's extra rooms available if a student catches covid and needs a place to isolate. those with religious exemptions will be tested regularly. everyone must wear a mask indoor, even in the dormitory hallways. can only take off the mask once inside their room. >> if i have to wear a mask it's worth it because my whole entire senior rear was ruined because of campus and going back on campus that's perfectly fine with me. >> after having to spend a whole year in quarantine in high
11:04 am
school, this is just really exciting for her to be able to move into this college. >> you feel like this will be more normal based on what you've seen so far? >> yes. i'm looking -- other than we're all wearing masks and all that stuff. >> reporter: now with that 86% capacity restriction i mentioned, cal state east pay can accommodate 1,350 students in its dorms. right now we'll well below that. next three days only 850 students will be moving on to campus. reporting live here in heyward, bob redell, nbc bay area news. >> thank you. the mask mandate debate in schools continues as more children are returning for the fall term. that includes thousands of students right here in the bay area beginning the first day of classes. now one new survey shows support for masks on campus but not so much for the vaccinations. the kaiser familiar hi foundation just released a survey saying 63% of parents support masks mandates for unvaccinated students and staff and 54% don't support mandatory
11:05 am
masks even if the fda grants approval and an overwhelming majority of teacher unions say they support the mandate. last night california's superintendent addressed the new vax or test rules in a town hall at oakland's horace mann elementary school. >> we know that those who have experienced the most serious conditions are those who don't have a vaccine. >> what's very concerning is that the government thinks they can continue with this overreach. we don't want to see that extended to our children. >> now the national group let them breathe opposes mask mandates and are against mandatory teacher and student vaccinations. well, there's no evidencing to back to cdc recommendations against pregnant women to get the covid vaccine so the new survey analyzed data involving 1,200 pregnant women and the
11:06 am
result showed no increased risk of miscarriage. this also extends to mothers who are breast feeding and trying to get pregnant. covid numbers show how much less at risk you are if you are fully vaccinated. the average case rate. for the unvaccinated it's 51 per 1,000. for fully vaccinated it's a little over 8 per 100,000. about six and a half times more cases for those who are unvaccinated. health leaders in the bay area, they are now starting new campaigns to help get people vaccinated. in the east bay contra costa health services has a new program offering people $100 for each person they get or can convince to get fully vaccinated. that person must complete their vaccination series uses a special promotional code. san francisco's department of public health is creating a
