8:03 am
you scare situation for all those involved. >>starting today, sonoma county is going to be put on the state's coronavirus watch list because the case is increasing conference will tran is live in petaluma with what that means well. >>that means bad news for over the past several weeks they've enjoyed having people inside to dine and as diners they loved it too because his was a win when they get to go back to what. >>is a new normal and they get some business but unfortunately now with the watch list in effect they will be closed for at least the next 3 weeks because the cases. >>they just didn't go up they exploded take a look at your screen we are going to give you whole bunch of numbers to digest. >>here are the numbers that facts governor of the state that they are relying on to make their decisions so back in early june there was sitting at 20 cases for every 100,000 residents that is super because the benchmark is
8:04 am
100 cases so they were well below that well as of this morning, they're sitting at 111 cases that is a hot spot, 42 cases just on thursday and since the pandemic started sonoma county has done a great job is trying to keep that deaths down of course every death is tragic. >>but overall the numbers are low 14 deaths and then all of a sudden on june 28 9 people died out of that 14 people altogether in sonoma county and that is why the board of supervisors in sonoma county they decided to go ahead and roll back some of those things that the restaurants, the museums that places that enjoyed people going inside that they're not being able to do that keep in mind just like i did yesterday napa county the key word is indoor. you can still go out and grab take out you can still hopefully find a restaurant where you can dine outside the patio we're talking indoor facilities where you can not
8:05 am
sit down and then just have a good time with your family and friends and a chance to talk to some people in sonoma county. everybody says they're on board. >>i feel bad for people here in petaluma because they're just getting back on their feet again. they're probably going to be really disappointed. they're being closed again. i'm more worried for them and the people that work for them, you know what's going to happen to them. people their jobs they're affecting in all this here. you know being closed in then they have no money. >>so she feels bad for those employees and let's face it we all do, but they're saying that it is a good move by the governor to get those cases back down to fewer than 100 cases for every 100,000 residents and by the way it's a 2 week span that the governor is measuring this as far as what's going to happen, yes. they're on a watch list, some of the things that are being bounced around possibly issuing tickets are people not wearing their masks when they
8:06 am
can not have social distance so lots going on in sonoma county a lot of people james darya disheartened because they thought they did such a great job keeping the numbers down one of the better counties in california and then all of a sudden over the past 5 weeks the cases just didn't go up they went up 5 100%. >>back to you i know i it's it's hard to believe and it's depressing like you said disheartening because we're all doing such a great job with the mass but you know all i mean it's not all that's the problem not the whole country california is only one of the states that's really blowing up well. >>absolutely i mean we're still relatively low compared to other states. i mean that the positivity rate that the governors watching anything above 8% meaning 8 people out of 100 tested, come down with a positive test so we're still below that. but the governor says this whole thing has started area and we've been doing this ever since it started the whole idea is to
8:07 am
make sure the hospitals are not overrun with coronavirus patients and the problem is in sonoma county is going up and up and up and soon facilities here won't be able to handle those cases, yeah, yeah you bring other places that have higher positivity rates. >>miami dade yesterday, 36%. the latest said one in 3 their health care expert said one of 3 people who went in to get tested had covid that's crazy. thanks a lot. well. >>california texas florida, arizona. now experiencing surges of infections. that have gone up to 30,040 50 and most recently a total of 60,000 new cases per day. we need to get our arms around that stephen we need to do something about it quickly because if we don't is a possibility. we may be seeing surgeons and other area. >>and there you see doctor fauci talking about exactly that is the nation's top infectious disease expert is
8:08 am

8:11 am
they just simply rocha citation after interviewing my employees they told my staff they were unable. they were not allowed to record them. so the interactions so my staff was very uncomfortable with it and it was it was very intimidating i think that abc is out of line for the way that they're conducting the strike force. >>abc apparently thought that he you know when you're cited for not wearing a mask that what it means is they need to wear a mask. the restaurant owners admit that at least 4 of his 5 staff members. >>we're not wearing face coverings. >>in the east bay, a major street downtown alameda is restructured to help businesses and restaurants. >>give people social distance and operate outdoors they're re striping as you can see 4 blocks of park street between tilden way and so at news and that should be done today to allow businesses to offer outdoor dining and curbside pickup, easier for people to get around and have distance. >>be able to come and sit and
