5:02 am
anything, was taken. about 24 hours after police say more than ten people broke into a dispensary on pendleton way, this is overnight on saturday. actually tried stealing a large amount of marijuana. two security guards confronted them, shots were fired. one suspected thief was shot and is now in stable condition. the other suspect ran off. the dispensary was one of several that were targeted. it's unknown if the case is related. oakland police chief leron armstrong plans to address the recent increase in crime including more details about the deadly police shooting in rock ridge saturday afternoon. it started with a carjacking in east oakland on fisher avenue near macarthur. officers later shot the suspect on ocean view drive near broadway in upper rock ridge. police say the suspect initially fired at officers and at the end of the chase tried to ram police patrol cars before officers killed him. no officers were injured.
5:03 am
the suspect, rather, has not been identified. now to a live look at sfo this morning. the travel rush is on with thanksgiving just three days away. there are growing concerns about the shortage of security screeners at our nation's airports. today it is the deadline for federal workers, including tsa agents to show that they are fully vaccinated. and with covid cases already on the rise in some parts of the country, the nation's health officials really worry about another holiday surge. today in the bay's chris pollone live in washington. those officials are actually urging people to get the booster shots. >> yeah, they certainly are ever since the cdc decision on friday. with 50 million americans expected to travel this week, the nation's top health officials hoped that a lot of them are planning to head to get a covid vaccine shot before they hit the road or head to the airport. across the country, the push to get americans vaccinated either through first shots or boosters.
5:04 am
health officials are still hoping to head off a winter holiday surge. >> get it before thanksgiving. make sure that when you sit down at that thanksgiving table with the people you love, you have the highest level of immunity to protect them. >> reporter: new covid cases are up 50% since late october. >> 11 yeses and zero nos. >> reporter: and friday the cdc approved booster shots for all adults over 18. >> the vaccines themselves clearly are still highly effective, but you want to make sure the durability of that protection is longer. and that's the reason why you get boosted. >> reporter: today is the deadline for federal workers to be vaccinated. low immunization rates in the tsa have fueled fears theref se screeners this week at the nation's airports. but the transportation secretary says those fears are unfounded. >> i have seen no indication the vaccine requirements are going to impact travel in any way. >> reporter: the number of daily vaccinations in the u.s. has nearly doubled in the past month but more than 60 million americans still remain
5:05 am
unvaccinated. the president's top covid adviser says those who are should enjoy a traditional thanksgiving celebration. >> if you are vaccinated and hopefully you'll be boosted, too, and your family is, you can enjoy a typical thanksgiving meal, thanksgiving holiday with your family. there's no reason not to do that. >> reporter: longing for normal in a time that's been anything but. here's a great example of the confusing times we live in. today washington, d.c., is dropping its indoor mask mandate while the next county over in maryland this past weekend reinstated its mask mandate. marcus? >> they connect. so that's really close contact there. all right. chris, i want to ask you this before you go about the federal workers and contractors. what happens to them if the discipline action. so today is the deadline, but o
5:06 am
that there will be a process for these government employees, all government employees really, who refuse to get vaccinated. first they can apply for religious or medical exemptions, and if they don't have those, then it will take some time to either suspend or fire them. that's why i suspect the transportation secretary said he didn't anticipate any staffing problems this week. >> looks like smooth sailing when it comes to travel this weekend. all right, chris, thank you. san jose leaders are trying to broker peace among taxi drivers and a new dispatch company arranging cab service at va netta airport. the contracted company called safer is changing fee collection from drivers and launching a dress code requiring them to wear neck ties, dress shoes and gloves. the independent cab drivers have now refused the service and -- to service the airport until a new deal is reached. safer is said to be a brazilian company with no prior experience in u.s. airports.
5:07 am
5:06. happening today, santa cruz will officially go back into mask mode requiring everyone to mask up indoors regardless of their vaccination status. you may recall back in september, santa cruz dropped that mandate thank to its slow spread of covid. now santa cruz county has a high enough spread that it's firmly in the cdc's second worst tier. california's hovering right now between high and substantial on the cdc's map. we're starting to see some progress in the bay area. five of our nine counties are now in the moderate tier moving in the right direction. this includes san francisco, san mateo, contra cost aalameda and marin counties. that means for at least a week they've reported fewer than 50 cases per every 100,000 people. the rest of the bay area is in orange, which means substantial. the second worst criteria. with the statewide drought wearing on, san francisco is the latest bay area city asking

5:20 am
next couple of days. and we're even seeing a storm system approaching, but by the time it gets here, that rain dries up and that's going to be the case for us throughout the week. even though there will be some showers nearby farther off towards the north. we will not see anything going on here and then with the dry weather all week long you think, okay, how is our rainfall surplus doing? and for the water year, we are still seeing a surplus, but it's getting smaller. we've seen it shrink every single day, every day that passes without rain our surplus is getting smaller. so looking at our temperatures this week with all of that sunshine, we do have some nice travel weather, family gathering weather, dinner outside weather, whatever you plan on doing this week. we'll see those 60s not only for the inland areas but san francisco as well. mike, you're expecting a lighter commute, aren't you? >> we are. the morning commute should be lighter. afternoons and evenings get a lot more complicated if folks are traveling around across town. looking at the south bay
