tv Today in the Bay NBC January 9, 2022 7:00am-8:00am PST
good morning. it's sunday, january 9th, 7:00 on the dot as we take a live look outside. a beautiful look towards emeryville and san francisco. happy klay day, everybody, as we look forward for klay thompson to return to the court tonight for the first time since 2019. i am kira klapper. meteorologist, vianey arana, joins us with a quick look at your microclimate forecast. it's cold out side this morning. >> it is. we're starting out really chilly in the 30s in a lot of spots, so
don't worry, it's going to get warmer into the afternoon and we will see more sunshine, too. a beautiful view of downtown san josé there. it's 39 degrees right now in san josé. that's pretty cold. fairfield right now is also at 39. look at the temperature trend. notice by 11:00 in the icon, you still see cloud cover and sunshine rolls in around 12:00, and that's going to keep us dry but it will warm us up. if you notice, there's a system off to the coast and that system will stay off the coast and we are not expecting any rain out of it. fog and visibility, still seeing dense fog through areas like tracy. >> thanks, vianey. we'll see you in about 15. as covid cases continue to rise in here california and across the bay area, and health care workers are waking up to
new advice, if you are positive, if you wake up with no symptoms, go to work. >> the variant sending more people to bay area hospitals across california, the state issues new guidelines on saturday to ensure there's enough staff to handle the increase. health care workers testing positive for covid no longer have to isolate or test negative and can return to work immediately if they are asymptomatic. it's a last resort for hospitals. >> there's inherent stress to our jobs as it is. >> one nurse said the move is a great mistake that puts patients at risk. >> if you are covid positive and caring for vulnerable patients, we could spread the virus inside
the hospital as well. >> the state department of health issued this statement saying the department is providing temporary flexibility in responding to an unprecedented surge in hospital shortages, and they have to resort to all other options before going to this cool, and they should have asymptomatic covid positive workers only will be in contact with covid patients. the professor of epidemiology said the state's move is surprising but not unprecedented. >> yeah, so this is about cohorting, right? this is about having people already infected taking care of infected people.
we did this with ebola in west africa and we have done it before. it's not one of the first things you put in the playbook but it's in the playbook and it's toward the end, and i think the staffing issues are such that it led the state to put this guidance out. >> loosening the precautions only make the spread easier. >> but redding says instead of increasing the number of health care workers, lifting the isolation requirements will only increase the chances of nurses getting other nurses sick. >> if we're going to set up for the surge, let's set up some protocols to have the transmission reduced. what that means is we should not be having covid positive people come to work. >> in san josé, marianne favro, nbc bay area news. and then first responders are saying people are calling 911 for minor concerns and
flooding their phone lines. and we continue our coverage from san francisco. >> in a tweet this weekend, san francisco mayor london breed revealed how many city line workers are out, 140 from the department, and 122 muni workers, and those absences come as more people are calling 911 for help. >> having over 400 ems calls a day in the city for the past several days -- >> the san francisco fire chief says that's about 30% more than usual, and with one out of every ten staff members out because of covid infections or protocols, that's stretching resources thin. she's asking the public to only call with serious emergencies. >> please don't call 911 to ask for a covid test because you have a cold or minor flu
symptoms. we really want to keep our ambulances available to people having a heart attack or stroke. >> as zuckerberg san francisco general hospital, about 400 staff members are out because of covid-19, and they are asking the public not to go to the emergency room for nonemergency situations. >> we are seeing more people looking for tests, and waking up with mild symptoms, and this is particularly a challenge because of all of the circumstances i described earlier. >> soldiers were at a testing site in antioch helping to speed up the process. under governor newsom's orders, there will be 50 more sites across the state. >> the head of zuckerberg san francisco general hospital say they will get any help they can get that will keep the public from try to go seek the nonemergency services from
places like emergency rooms. in san francisco, bay area news. happening tomorrow, west contra costa unified district campuses will be temporarily closed after covid cases were reported last week. that means a brief return to remote learning for about 28,000 students across the east bay district. all schools will be deep cleaned during the closure. in-person classes are expected to resume on tuesday. governor gavin newsom is putting out a warning for anybody trying to make a quick buck off of at-home covid tests. the governor signed an executive order to prevent price gouging. now, sellers who increase the price of an at-home test by 10% can face level consequences. governor newsom rolled ought a proposal to spend $2 billion in
a response to covid. we have a breakdown for you. it will give millions of antigen tests to health departments, clinics, schools and educational offices, and more than half a billion will go to help encounter misinformation. if you need help finding a test, just go to nbcbayarea.com/covidtesting. we have a comprehensive list of testing sites across the bay area, and that list is sorted county by county. we're going to turn now to a local family asking for help to find a woman that has not been seen in more than a week. if you can, take a look at her picture. this is 28-year-old morgan manuel. family members say on new year's eve she was in san francisco's
tenderloin district and they only learned on friday that nobody knows where she is. her family believes she still could be in san francisco or possibly in the oakland area. they are offering $5,000 for information to help find her. san francisco police confirmed they are investigating morgan manuel's case. call sfpd if you have seen her or have any information. we will shift gears now to tonight is the tonight many in dub nation has been looking for, klay thompson is returning to the game after not playing for two years, 941 days to be exact. >> i'm back. >> klay will return to the court tonight when the warriors take on the cleveland cavaliers at chase center. he had a torn acl and achilles, and coach kerr said he is in the starting lineup.
welcome back. it's time for our weekly discussion with chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." happy new year. >> good morning. >> good to see you. >> thank you. >> on thursday, former health experts and advisers to president biden, a lot of people might not know this, published articles, do you have an exclusive interview with the doctor that spearheaded this movement, and does this mean we
will be calling it an endemic rather than a pandemic? >> well, it's the first question i asked him, and he said, look, it's not an endemic yet, and when you still have 1,500 people a day dying, that's still a pandemic. but his argument is this is not going away. it's not going to get eradicated. look at the vaccine status of the world, and it's educating the public on risk tolerance and that begins with how the response -- you know, how the response is handled by the federal government. in this case, the biden administration. i think they have been of late catching up to where the public wants to be rather than sort of guiding the public to this place, and that's never a good place to be. i think that what these doctors -- i don't just have emanuel on, but i also have one of the six folks who also wrote these -- made this recommendation, and i do think
it is -- a lot of it has to do with guidance that should change, but we're not bringing people along as to why the guidance is changing. it ends up being confusing and muddled. it's a more centralized response, but also -- >> we just passed another anniversary of the capitol, and you have an interview who is investigating the unsir recollection, and he doesn't agree that president trump won the election. could you give us a summary of the latest for those of us that can't keep up with the back and forth? >> what is interesting here, here is one thing adam made
clear, what is the biggest piece of information that you don't have that you would like to have on this january 6th committee. he said it's trying to determine if president biden was simply being incompetent on january 6th or if it was purposeful? meaning how much did he know what was going to happen on january 6th? when did he know it was going to be what it turned out to be? what he said, if they find evidence that he did know, that's when you start talking about criminal referrals for his involvement in this. but that's the basic, if you are looking for what they don't know yet, how much -- you know, the old question of watergate, what did the president know and when did he know it, and if he knew it a lot sooner and he knew about it, he believes that's potentially criminal. >> will we ever find that out remains to be seen.
chuck todd, as always, thank you for your insight. we look forward to seeing you next week. we'll see you at 8:00 a.m. be sure and join chuck for "meet the press" as mentioned, and we will have representative adam kinzinger. as well as an exclusive interview of chicago mayor, lori lightfoot. nbc's kathy park reports. >> severe weather crippling the country from coast-to-coast. this is just terrible. in the pacific northwest, record rain and snow-melt turned roads into rivers, and drivers were stranded who needed to be rescued. extreme flooding in western
washington shutdown a 20 mile stretch of i-5, and two hours outside the city, 72-year-old delbert pratt drowned while moving his car to higher ground. 57 million americans are under winter weather alerts this weekend as freezing rain threatens the nation's midsection before heading east. >> this is terrible. i can't even feel my fingers, it's number. >> chicago, pittsburgh, baltimore and philadelphia all at risk of dangerous travel conditions due to ice accumulation. new england is still digging out from friday's storm, and parts of massachusetts still buried in snow, though some are making the best of it. >> it's a winter wonderland, and it's beautiful. my dog has never seen snow so he's loving it. >> anytime you have snow in new
york and children of elementary school age, it's special and it's terrific out here. >> you have to take advantage of it. >> as the northeast braces for more bad weather, airlines also can't catch a break. covid and storms canceling more than 1,200 flights today. >> that was kathy park reporting for us. we have a tragic follow-up now to a story we have been following since christmas day. the search is over for an missing skier. he was found near tahoe's north star ski resort half a mile from a residential neighborhood. experts say it's possible in the blinding whiteout conditions he got lost on the backside of the resort and was trying to find homes. his family said they are deeply touched by the outpouring of support and the efforts of searchers. sticking in tahoe, thousands of people in the sierra remain
without running water and power. this is the current pg&e outage map. the outages began around christmas day two weeks ago after the storm left a record downpour of snow. pg&e said they restored power to many customers, but crews are still working to restore electricity to nearly 7,000 customers. now to the winter olympics. the women's figure skating team is set and the bay area will be well represented. u.s. figure skating is tweeting that national champion, mariah bell and karen chen are on team usa, and despite recently testing positive for covid, 16-year-old alysa liu from richmond snagged that third spot. congratulations to them. trending this morning, you may have heard of beyond meat, the plant-based meat alternative. now get ready for beyond fried
chicken. kfc is launching it's plant-based fried chicken tomorrow. it tested the product and it sold out in less than five hours. customers will be able to buy the beyond fried chicken in six or 12-piece orders with dipping sauce for about 7 bucks. at 7:20, it's time to check in with meteorologist, vianey arana, for a look at our microclimate forecast. it's chilly out there, but beautiful and clear. >> it is so nice. we really just have had calm weather since yesterday, even though it's cold. of course we are seeing clouds and fog. take a look at the golden gate bridge right now. you can see it's windy as we look at the flag in the corner, and we will see the temperatures warm up for the afternoon. it's not going to be cold all day. satellite showing a cold day over most of california, and you
see a system but high pressure is blocking that and we are going to stay dry. visibility down to less than a quarter of of a mile in some areas because of the fog. as far as your temperatures right now, look at san josé. 39 degrees. livermore, 36. i always think it's very neat to take a look at how we are doing compared to the rest of the nation. minneapolis, negative 4. even though, yes, we are cold, at least we are not negative 4. we are seeing 70s in miami and down through houston. air quality will be good from the coast to the south bay, but the north bay will see moderate air quality. forecasted highs today warmer temperatures in the south bay, mid-60s, and once that fog cleared out, you can see plenty of sunshine for your sunday fun day, so why not go for a nice
hike. south bay hiking if you are going in the evening, it will be chillier. we are seeing cloudy conditions right now but eventually we will see the sun filter through. your hour-by-hour outlook, the reason i will show you this is not because we are tracking rain, but by tonight into early monday morning's commute, you will see the return of the fog and clouds, and it could be a foggy commute early monday morning. san francisco, 7-day forecast, take a look. we will be warming up just a little tomorrow because of the high pressure. if you notice, we will stay dry. we are monitoring a chance of a system maybe rolling through at the end of the week, but for now things are looking good. temperatures will remain in the 50s and 60s for the remainder of the week and expect the overnight lows to continue in the 30s for inland areas. so binxie will be wearing his
good morning, everyone. i am anthony flores. the slash brothers will be reunited tonight at the center. >> dub nation, i'm back. >> thompson making the announcement yesterday. he will hit the court when the warriors take on the cleveland cav nears. it comes 941 days since he last played in game six of the 2019 nba finals. it has been quite a journey. he had to rehab two major leg injuries but now he's healthy. the coach, is he going to be in the starting lineup? >> he's klay thompson, you know. when you can score 60 points in
29 minutes, generally the coach should start you. so klay is going to start. i talked to him about it and it makes the most sense. >> tip-off tonight at 5:30. our friends over at nbc sports bay area have been tracking klay's return. they will have complete coverage starting at 4:00 today. they will even go courtside for exclusive coverage of klay's pregame warm-up. to the ice, the sharks are terminating a contract for breach in violating covid protocol. and the third goal of the game here and the team high 20th of the season, it's his fifth career hat trick. the sharks beat the flyers 3-2. all signs continue to point to jimmy garrapalo being in the huddle when the 49ers take on the rams today in los angeles.
jimmy g and the rest of the niners making their way to l.a. yesterday afternoon. the niners got a big boost when most of their starting secondary returned from either covid or injuries in the past 24 hours. as for jimmy g, he's trying to play with a torn ligament in his right thumb. the niners can clinch a playoff spot with their sixth win in a row over the rams. >> whatever i can do to be out there i will be out there, but you have to be smart and think about what is best for the team. >> it has no bearing on what happened in the past, it's all about these four quarters. >> the raiders are also looking to clinch a playoff spot. they play the chargers on sunday night football right here on nbc bay area. the winner is in the playoffs. kickoff comes your way at 5:20. that's a look at your morning sports, i am anthony flores for "today in the bay." thank you.

good morning. it's sunday, january 9th, 7:30 on the dot as we take a live look outside. it's a beautiful cotton candy pink skies over san josé. the day so many of us have been waiting for, 941 days in the making, klay thompson returns to the court tonight for the first time since 2019 as the warriors take on the cleveland cavaliers here in the bay area. we'll have more on that later. first, i am kira klapper. thank you for starting your morning with us. meteorologist, vianey arana, takes a look at our microclimate forecast. >> we're off to a nice start.
it's cloudy and foggy in some spots, but overall it's cold. we are not tracking rain right now. we will have a chance to cool off. i want to show you a beautiful shot of lake tahoe. it's a live look right now, but it is five degrees there, and the reason i wanted to show you is because it's not only gorgeous but it's your window of opportunity to head up there without worrying about the advisories, so make plans if you want to travel up there. temperatures are topping out in the upper 50s and a couple 60s through the bay area. fairfield right now is at 39 degrees. once the cloud cover clears out we will get a lot of sunshine. i will go into more detail on that coming up in a few minutes. i'll send it back to you. >> thank you. hospital workers in california are waking up to guidance this morning, and it's controversial. those that tested positive for covid can return to work immediately if they have no sim actuals.
marianne favro said it is to help hospitals amid the omicron surge. >> reporter: with more people being sent to bay area hospitals and across california, there were new guidelines issued saturday to make sure there's enough staff to handle the increase. health care workers testing positive for covid could return to work immediately if they are asymptomatic. the new guidelines are in effect until february 1st. >> the president of the california nurse's association says the move is a grave mistake that puts patients at risk. >> we are very concerned that if you have health care workers covid positive caring for vulnerable patients that we can spread the covid virus inside the hospital as well. >> we reached out to the state department of public health that
issued this statement saying the department is providing temporary flexibility to help hospitals and emergency service providers respond to an unprecedented surge in staffing shortages. hospitals have to exhaust all other options before resorting to this temporary tool. facilities and providers using this tool should have asymptomatic positive workers interacting only with the positive patients. and they will need to wear an n-95 respirator. >> the processor of epidemiology at ucsf said it's not unprecedented. >> this is about cohorting. this is about having people already infected taking care of infected people. we did this for ebola in west africa and we have done it before. it's kind of a, you know, it's
not one of the first things you put in the playbook, but it's in the playbook towards the end and the staffing and such led the state to put this guidance out. >> loosening the precautions only makes the spread easier. >> but redding said instead of helping the increase workers, lifting the precaution requirements will only get more nurses sick. >> if we are going to set up for the surge, let's set up protocols to help the transmission be reduced, which is that we should not have infected people coming to work. now to san francisco where there's a plea among first responders. don't call 911 if it's not an emergency. this as more and more people are dialing 911 and flooding phone lines and putting a strain on resources. today in the bay continues our
coverage. >> in a tweet this weekend san francisco mayor, london breed, revealed how many front line city workers are out because of covid-19. 184 from the san francisco police department. 140 from the fire department. 122 muni workers. those absences come as more people are calling 911 for help as the current covid-19 surge continues. >> having about over 400 ems calls a day in the city for the past several days -- >> san francisco fire chief, jeanine nicholson, said that is about 30% more than usual. with one out of every ten staff members out because of covid infections or protocol, that's stretching staff thin. >> please don't call 911 to ask for a covid test or because you have a cold or minor flu symptoms. we really want to keep our
ambulances available to people having a heart attack or a stroke. >> as zuckerberg san francisco general hospital, about 400 staff members are out because of covid-19. they are also asking the public not to go to the emergency room for nonemergency situations. >> we are seeing more people looking for tests and seeing more people walking up with mild symptoms, and this is particularly a challenge for all of us now because of the circumstances i described earlier. >> the high demand for testing is something members of the california national guard are helping with. soldiers were at a testing site in antioch on saturday helping to speed up the process. under governor newsom's orders, they will be across the state to help increase testing capacity. >> they will take any help they can get by increasing testing capacity elsewhere that would keep the public from trying to
seek the nonemergency services instead of emergency rooms. happening tomorrow, west contra costa unified classes will be closed until tuesday. that means remote learning for about 28,000 students in the district. all the schools in the district will be deep cleaned during the closure and classes are expected to resume on tuesday. governor newsom is putting out a warning for anybody trying to make a quick buck off of covid tests. sellers that increase the price of at-home tests by more than 10% could face legal consequences, and that ranges from fines up to $4,000 or six months in jail. governor newsom also rolled out a proposal to spend $2.7 billion for california's response to covid. we have break down for you. $1.2 billion will go towards
testing, and it will give millions of antigen tests. more than half a billion would go to vaccination efforts, and that includes a pr campaign to counter misinformation. and then$6 million designated for health care. we have a comprehensive list of sites across the bay area at nbcbayarea.com. it's sorted county by county. and tonight klay thompson is returning to the game in more than two years, 941 days, in case you missed it. >> dub nation, i'm back. >> thompson made that long-awaited announcement yesterday. klay will return to the court tonight when the warriors take on the cleveland cavaliers at chase center.
he worked hard to nurse a torn acl and achilles. coach kerr said he is in the starting lineup. nbc bay sports will have exclusive coverage of klay's pregame warm-up. from good news to more happy news. a dog who was lost for more than four months, the non-profit tlc for furry friends, last month they got a call near twin peeks, and the dog was found in five feet of snow unable to move. the group used rescue equipment and a sled to get him to safety. they tracked down his owner in riverside county. turns out back in august the dog got scared and ran off from the owner's car while he was in tahoe for a job. the owner had to stop looking for him when the caldor fire
i hope it's off to a fantastic and relaxing start. just as comfortable as binx is on this couch. we will have sunshine that will finally prevail into the afternoon. let's get a live look right now in san francisco. a beautiful shot of the golden gate bridge. you can see the flag there. it is a little breezy and we are seeing areas of fog. overall satellite radar showing us high pressure is keeping the bay area quiet for now. it's going to continue to build over the next couple of days, but we are still seeing limited visibility in areas like santa
rosa to about quarter of a mile. tracy, quarter of a mile. morgan hill, about four miles of visibility. we are in the 30s in livermore and san josé. i like to do the comparison of how we are doing compared to the rest of the nation. negative 4 in minneapolis. down through houston, 72. in miami, they are down to 76. right there near the new york city mark. your air quality today from the coast to the south bay will be good. if you live in the north bay, expect moderate air-conditions and the reason is because of the building high pressure. temperatures will range from the low to mid-50s to a couple mid-60s in the south bay. san rafael, 67. take note of the time stamp on the right-handed corner, it says sunday 10:00 p.m., we have a return of fog and clouds. no rain but that fog will carry
over into your morning commute. if you live in the north bay, be mindful of that. here's your san francisco forecast. temperatures will remain mild today. warm-up just a little bit into monday and tuesday. if you notice in the icons, it remains dry for the next several days. we are heading towards a dry and mild pattern. a couple mid-60s and also overnight lows will stay cold in the 30s. not just for tonight but for the next several days in through the bay area. monday, tuesday and wednesday, all the way through thursday we're going to keep the mid-60s before we cool off a bit. we are monitoring a chance of the next system, and this is going to be a nice nonactive weather pattern. good calm after several storms. it's 7:44 right now. we have much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up, larry gerston joins
welcome back. fans will have one last chance to pay their respect to john madden. the nfl announced there will be a public memorial service for madden on february 15th. he was a bay area favorite and passed away a week and a half ago sending shock waves throughout the sports world. his family said they have been overwhelmed by all the love and support they have received from fans. and then a new variant in europe called the ihu variant. there's a new variant every two weeks but they rarely escalate
to a point of concern. >> it doesn't mean too much. after all, delta looked serious and omicron came and is taking it over because it's more transmissible. >> so far there's only a dozen cases of the new ihu variant. and then the state legislature must respond with their own version of the budget. larry gerston joins us with a preview of what we can expect. good to see you. how much is it and where is the money going? >> good morning, kira. look, every year the legislature goes through this process with the governor and has to fund hundreds of major programs throughout the state, but over time we realize that there are four big policy areas that get the most attention. you begin with, believe it or
not, k through 12 education, and we receive close to 40% of what we call the general fund, followed by health and human services, with the health care programs and homelessness, you name it. and then higher education, and corrections, prisons, jails, things like that that the federal government funds, 14 billion. together, kira, this comes up to be 80% of the state budget. the rest could be spent on things like transportation, natural resources and firefighting, all of these types of other issues that will take chunks of money, but those 80% numbers for the first four programs is what the legislature spends most of its time on. >> did i read that the governor says he expected a surplus of $31 billion? what will be done with all of that? >> $31 billion. it seems like an awful lot of
money, kira, but you would be surprised how fast it could be gobbled up. newsom, as you indicated, said yesterday he would like to see 2.7 billion of that one-time spending for covid, boosters, and home tests being made available. $2.7 billion. and other areas, early education, and dealing with the gangs that are taking away all that equipment, and dealing with a one-time stimulus. these are all kinds of issues that may garner money. the legislature, of course, has its own issues by the way, whether there will be tax rebates or help for undocumented immigrants. they have all kinds of things. believe it or not, $31 billion
sounds like a lot, and it is, and it's the entire budget of four other states combined, but still that money will be gobbled up fast. >> i want to backtrack just a second. you were talking about all of these competing demands and it's nothing new that happens every year, but how do they come to terms with all of the different places to spend the money? >> kira, that's the big question. how does it get done? there will be three, i should say, major elements. the governor and his staff are setting up their parameters as early as tomorrow. not only democrats and republicans, but there's fighting between factions within the parties, and there are interest groups and lobbyists, for every legislature in california, there's 1200 lobbyists, and they will try and
gobble up money for their causes, whether it's public health or business questions, and those three elements will be responsible for the budget ultimately coming together. let me tell you something, it will be the equivalent of a food fight and interesting to watch. >> we will have to wait until june to see what happens. larry, as always, thank you for your insight and great to see you. at 7:52, up next a look at the top stories we are following, including health care workers if testing positive for covid can still go to work, and how a new rule is making sense and why the state says it's needed.
welcome back. here's a quick look at the top stories we are following this morning, including new guidance for health care workers in overwhelmed california hospitals. the guidance is proving to be controversial. it's in an effort to make sure there's enough staff to handle the increase in omicron hospitalizations. the state now says health care workers that test positive for covid know longer have to quarantine. they can keep working as long as they don't have symptoms. those health care workers could only work with covid positive patients and would have to wear an n-95 respirator among other measures. the nurse's association says this puts patients at risk. the new guidelines are in effect from now until february 1st.
if you are having a hard time finding a testing site, we can help. go to nbcbayarea.com/testing. we have a list of sites sorted county by county. happy klay day. the one so many have been waiting for, as klay thompson is returning to the court for the first time in more than 2 1/2 years. he's in the starting lineup when the dubs take on the cavaliers tonight. tip-off at 5:30. nbc bay area sports will have complete coverage, including the warm-up starting at 4:00. let's check in with meteorologist, vianey arana, before we go on this sunday. hey, vianey. >> hey, there, it's a cold start. if you are heading out right now, keep that in mind. we are in the 30s and 40s in a lot of the bay area. by the afternoon, though, we will be in the 50s, a couple low 60s as well and we will have sunshine yet again. it will be similar to what we
saw yesterday. take a look at your 7-day forecast for san francisco. we have high pressure, and that's going to help keep our temperatures dry -- or i should say mild and our conditions dry, and we are going to see a return of fog. of course we are already seeing that now in the north bay and interior valleys. we will see that again tonight. tonight, you know, in the interior sheltered valleys especially dipping down once again in the low to mid-30s at times. by early monday morning, if you are going to return to work you are going to experience fog, but enjoy your sunday, kira. >> thank you so much. thank you to all of you for making us part of your morning. there's no 5:00 or 6:00 news tonight, instead it's football, and then it's xfinity sports sunday at 8:30 followed by a special edition of nbc bay area news at 9:00 and again at 11:00,
this sunday the cdc under fire. >> we had all winter break to have this planned out and here we are. >> with cases speaking, hospitals overwhelmed -- >> it's been a lot of uncertainty, and i'm tired. >> -- air travel disrupted, widespread labor shortages including teachers staying home. >> i would appreciate being able to work in an environment where at least the students are all pcr tested weekly. >> criticism is growing over the government's covid response? >> we have to reorient our goal so we get into a manageable state and we can continue with
