pacifica then took it a step further, closed the city owned parking lots and then the beaches as well. so that's because when the beaches are open, she says that people just park in the neighborhoods and then that causes a lot of problems for the residents. the mayor says that's what happened during memorial day weekend when visitors jammed into the residential street. she doesn't want a repeat of that and doesn't want to see a postolid spike in covid cases among her ty hae parkin closed and the parking in their neighborhoods was putting them at risk and that's what we're trying to do here is to protect the health and welfare. as mayor it's my job to make sure the community is protected. this was not -- it was not an easy call. but it's the right call. >> reporter: and so here's a list of all the closures in pa cay is. the state beach, rockaway beach, that includes the north and south parking lots, sharp park beach, esplanade beach and of course the fisherman's let on the 800 block of palmetto. so police will be taking a zero
tolerance stance towards fireworks and if you are caught lighting them, it's $1,000 fine. and then if you are the property owner, you could be fined $1,000 as well. even if you are not the person who set off the fireworks on that property. so consider yourself warned. we're live in pacifica, kiet do, kpix 5. control your guests. carione bay area health expert says the governor's mandate to shut down indoor restaurants and bars isn't actually going to do much to stop the spread of the virus. in solano county socially distanced indoor dining has been allowed for weeks and they cite the rise in cases from mostly memorial day weekend and family get-togethers like parties, now the county is shifting focus. >> i don't think it's realistic to stop the spread of covid at this point. i think what we want to do is have as little harm occur as possible while the spread is
occurring. >> in contra costa county, indoor dining was supposed to start last night. but now restaurant owners are on hold. >> we start hiring people, we start preparing menus of different things. ordering more product. yeah. and then for what? for nothing. >> and the state's guidance is going to be in place for the next three weeks. happening today. bay area restaurant owners and chefs are going to hold a webinar on how they've responded to the pandemic and where the restaurant industry is going at this point. that starts at 5:00 and you can register at spur.org. and californians without jobs could get up to seven extra weeks of unemployment benefits. it's part of a program called fed ed that becomes available when the state experiences high or prolonged periods of unemployment and today the labor department will release its june jobs report. that's coming up in about the next half hour. it's predicted that nearly 3

welcome back. now to a kpix 5 special report. with coronavirus infections once again on the rise, contact tracing is even more critical to try to control the spread of the virus. a growing number of new apps are designed to help do just that. >> some are privately developed and others are developed by governments. here in the u.s., only four states are using them as part of their pandemic strategy. but as kpix 5's allen martin shows us. in other countries they're getting very popular. >> that's it. that's all there is to it. >> reporter: bret hall just started using a contact tracing app for covid-19 called corona warn. developed by the german government. >> i heard about it and downloaded it and pretty quickly actually, on the day
that was released officially. >> reporter: he's been in berlin for the past decade and says downloading the app was voluntary. >> the more people that have it the more effective it is. i felt this was something that i should do to help get back to a sense of normality quicker. >> reporter: here's the way the app bret is using and most others like it work. on your way through the day, from home to work or exercise or shopping, it documents the digital encounter between two smart phones. if someone using the app tests positive for the coronavirus, they can notify others if they choose to. if you had contact with that person, the app will quickly inform you. >> any contact is then held -- your details are held anonymously on your phone and you only receive information. >> reporter: corona warn doesn't allow you to know who it is whs been infected or where you met them. vice versa, the infected person cannot tell who's been informed. most of the contact tracing apps are designed that way. however, it does not an you privacy protection. >> so i think that's there's
read location and contacts. other apps they reviewed asked only for location. >> the data you give to an app should relate to what you are getting out of the app. >> reporter: researchers also found connections with third party marketers were not always clearly spelled out. for example, north dakota's app called care 19 was at first called out for its relationship with four square. a marketing company. it now discloses that it uses four square to determine nearby businesses that you may have visited. the app's developer told us four square has agreed not to retain data. this privacy attorney says agreements are not a guarantee. >> if you think that the app that's supposed to keep you safe from a virus is going to sell you shoes the next day from a shoe store you walked by on your normal afternoon jog, you are not going to want to use it. >> reporter: matthew with the electronic frontier foundation says there's also a security risk. >> whenever you have a company or entity that's storing a vast
amount of sensitive information, that -- that storage, that data is going to have a huge target on it. >> reporter: researchers with the digital accountability council found some apps including the cdc's app, also sent transmissions that were not encrypted. >> that created a risk. a cyber security risk. that was both problematic in its own right at a time when the public's trust in cdc is critical. >> reporter: in general though, the researchers found the apps do a lot to protect the privacy of users. the most secure apps reviewed were private kit and path check gps. we asked the council to review bret's app for the store. their verdict without having tested it, a preliminary thumbs up. back in berlin, bret hall is so far happy with it too. >> something as serious as this, then it's something i'm willing to accept. >> reporter: allen martin, kpix 5. california is currently not
using a contact tracing app. a spokesperson for the department of health told us most of that work can be done by phone, text, email and chat. the oakland zoo says the next two months are make or break financial troubles from the pandemic could force it to close permanently. the zoo has lost $2.5 million each month since it was ordered to close in mid-march. its director says if the zoo doesn't open by september 1st at the laities, it will have to turn over operations to the city. the director admits that scenario would be a costly endeavor for the city to take on. happening today, partial reopening of six flags discovery kingdom in vallejo. the park has been closed for nearly four months. today it will begin welcoming guests for what it calls an animals only experience. roller coasters and other rides are still off-limits for the time being. it's 5:17. here's gianna with a check on traffic this morning. good morning. >> good morning len. and good morning to you if you are getting ready to head out
