6:07 am
>>we no longer have the luxury of confining thousands of people and quite tightly closed spaces. and thinking that it will only impact their public health and their public safety. this impacts us all i think one of the biggest and justice is done. was to call the san quentin outbreak from the very beginning this has been a marine county outbreak. >>well the state's online tracker of the prison population shows 19 inmates have died from covid-19 10 of them were on death row and more than 1500 have recovered. well happening today in the east bay, the contra costa county board of supervisors may approve an ordinance that would proof fines for violating health orders now this includes wearing face coverings social distancing and gatherings the fine for individuals would range from 100 to $500 for noncommercial violations and then commercial violations would range from 2.50 to $1000.
6:08 am
>>a san francisco catholic church is under scrutiny this morning after the city says it was set to host a large indoor wedding. and it's not the first time the saints, peter and paul church has been accused of violating the city health orders back on the 4th of july the san francisco city attorney's office says it received a tip that a wedding with 100 guests was sent to be held inside the north beach church. the city attorney's office already sent the san francisco archdiocese assistant a cease and desist letter because of numerous complaints about large indoor services, those violate of course the city's public health order. u c berkeley infectious disease expert josh or sparkling us slams what he calls a disregard for the public health order. >>to even larger gathering job side are risky and we know that because there's been so many operatives associated with cancer aids so mrs. this is of all the things you can do to access today. the
6:09 am
problems of the pandemic this was one of them. >>well the city attorney ernie also issued a statement which says in part quote the reported covid-19 outbreak that resulted from the archdiocese failures has hopefully shot its leadership in the taking responsibility of the life and death consequences of what's happening in its churches. a spokesperson for the archdiocese says it sent a memo to all 90 of its parishes reminding them to follow the rules of the counties where their churches are located. and happening today, the giants will be taking the field for their first home game of the 2020 season. but today's game comes as a big coronavirus cloud is hanging over major league baseball. there are growing concerns this morning over the safety of the players kron four's will tran live at oracle park he has the latest normally will this would be a very happy day there be crowds of people behind you all ready for a game this taking place tonight. >>you're making me tear up because i've covered season
6:10 am
home openers for a long time you would see people already outside and usually season home openers marty there around one '05 first pitch, but tonight, 6.45. >>and even that's no guarantee because the giants could be told to stay home. we do know that 4 teams in major league baseball, they're told to stay home or at least stay in their hotel rooms because of covid-19 that the giants they come back to. >>oracle park. >>2 into they should be celebrating because they split the series with a la dodgers but now they're watching what's going on with major league baseball after the miami marlins. 11 players and 2 coaches came down with covid-19 over the weekend there were in philadelphia. play that game in after the game they realize just how many people came down with covid-19 and that force major league baseball to actually cancel a couple of games with them and the marlins they were scheduled to play their season home opener yesterday so that
6:11 am
game has was canceled and today's game for them also canceled and in the yankees, they rescheduled the role in right after the marlins, play the phillies but they canceled the yankees phillies game as well because they didn't want the yankees to be in the same clubhouse and dugout as the miami marlins just in case. they came down with covid-19 so you get the case said everybody is even more connected than ever before. the giants fortunately so far they have not had any players during the short season, so far 4 games test positive for covid-19 they get tested every day and said they come down the covid-19 they do have advanced to rotate people in but nobody. i don't think anybody anticipated 11 players and 2 coaches within the first few games of the season coming down with covid-19 so this is sending a ripple effect not just throughout major league baseball but throughout the old sports community in the nba. murty as you know at
6:12 am
least they have the facade of a bubble where the players can stay within that bubble, they're encouraged to stay there in their hotel and their resort in florida but in major league baseball. they can go home and they can catch covid-19 so they're not sure. how these players at the marlins came down with it, but it is so touch and go with major league baseball, but if all goes well tonight marty jeffs of marjah will take the mound hopefully the giants will play and hopefully they will win the key word this year. i guess is. marty yeah and exactly it. >>and it transcends baseball to we're hoping on about everything nowadays will thanks a lot for that live report from oracle park this morning robin go giants well now moving over to the nfl training camp kicks off today as players in or champ, they will be tested for covid-19 players will need 2 negative tests in the past 3 days in order to take to the field there in training camp and players will be tested every

6:17 am
hours as you can see still lingering a little bit in the east bay there but the concentration will be along the coast here places like point re and morning drizzle be possible each morning to with all of this as a marine layer gets quite thick at the start of the day we do see an uptick in those winds happening are going to feel them inland a little bit here getting into in some cases the double digits to touch the actors a cooling mechanism bringing in that marine layer, the typical pattern where the central valley will be much more baking as we get to about 100 plus expected for this afternoon. the breakdown of what we got going on here is morning fog and clouds coastal drizzle thrown in for good measure, but it's sunny and warm into the afternoon. now midweek there's minor cooling is pretty close to persistence forecast. but just some minor cooling shaving off a couple degrees. so some places are going to be reaching the lower 90's today maybe shave in the back a little bit to 90 or so but by this weekend going to a little bit of heat bump if you will or so as temperatures start to warm up a little bit more so in the middle 90's and those same locations, 65 san francisco, we're looking at 72
6:18 am
for oakland, 84 meanwhile for san jose. but across the wider bay we do see those 90's in place antioch at 9491 for concord but the east bay shoreline in the upper 70's and you probably won't see the 80's return until we get into the weekend of course that extended forecast coming up in a bit was have your 4 zone 2. but now rob is going to check into traffic in a hot spot as well rob yes, i do indeed have a hot spot and it's out in the santa cruz mountains on highway 17. it's a major accident from 5.30 this morning. >>southbound 17 before the summit this big rig crashed into the hillside flipped onto its side and as of right now chp has both of the southbound lanes blocked so traffic is not getting through in fact they were forcing you off at redwood estates they've issued a special traffic alert. they call to one of those big heavy duty tow trucks that's going to take some time. we have a larger rig that flipped over like this it could be hours before they get out of the way so no exact estimated time for clearing you may just want to
6:19 am
avoid southbound 17 so far this is not impacting northbound 17 northbound is the commute direction. and it's a little slow through the scene but all lanes are open so it's only 27 minutes from santa cruz or make that 24 minutes from santa cruz into los gatos so not too bad for the northbound right. here's a little peek at one oh one 27 minutes from san jose to menlo park that's looking good and a quick peek at the bay bridge just a minor wait nothing major 12 minutes into san francisco. marty. >>all right robin will democratic state lawmakers unveiled a 100 billion dollars stimulus plan to help millions of californians. that includes tax breaks for small businesses financial relief for undocumented immigrant workers and an increase in affordable housing and renter protections. the plans aimed at accelerating revenue collection from many available funding streams without having to raise taxes. it would also involve borrowing from the federal government to boost the state's unemployment program, lawmakers in both chambers want to get the deal passed before the end of the

6:21 am
great depression. they spent billions of dollars on homeless only to see the situation worsen. ever changing small business directives and guidelines are putting at risk the safety of every california resident by allowing 18,000 convicted felons back in our communities. now lawmakers in both chambers want to get the deal passed before the end of the session deadline. >>a new relief plan for struggling americans is facing some major hurdles republican lawmakers unveiled their 1 trillion dollar coronavirus relief proposal on capitol hill yesterday, it's called the heals act and in the proposal. the gop wants another round of stimulus checks cuts to enhanced unemployment benefits by $400 allocate billions for testing and top federal health agencies and 100 billion dollars toward reopening schools. democrats are angry that enhance weekly unemployment benefits will actually drop from $600 to $200 and there's no indication that the majority of republicans will support it.

6:46 am
looking at upper 60's happening here on the bay side of the peninsula 75 burning game with some token lower 80's to the south redwood city in palo alto there 76 and carlos and 77 from mountain view. the south bay is mostly in the 80's for today the approaching the mid 80's with a 93 for morgan hill 88 los gatos east bay shoreline even to the south stays in the 70's, although i suspect by this weekend will be in the lower 80's by the little warm-up coming our way 94 livermore 88 per pleasanton 86 for dublin 88 for walnut creek 91 for concord 70 richmond berkeley at 67. and a pair of the north bay again we can grab a couple hot ones here 96 for vacaville 94 meanwhile for any aac it's kind of hard for that marine layer to reach out there sometimes 81 for a napa 86 for sonoma and 84 for santa rosa, we got some 60's covering the coast. there don't forget late the clearing is also responsible for that too. so a little minor drop in temperatures happening tomorrow and into thursday. we
