to west grand so get out there early 11 growing into san francisco darya james thanks a lot rob, and it's 6 oh one and a big story is the big controversy about house speaker nancy pelosi's hair she got it done indoors at a salon in san francisco, when they're not supposed to be offering services indoors yet. yeah my the pandemic made that a reality for quite a little while and crop for sarah stinson is live with the latest with a lot of people asking. >>why she allowed to go indoors and get her hair done sarah. >>yeah that is the questions is a covid controversy after house speaker nancy pelosi got her hair done here at this salon isa lawn on union street people are wondering why she was able to do that why she thought it was ok and it definitely has stirred up some controversy after surveillance video was released of her inside the salon and the owner of the san francisco hair salon says the longtime california congresswoman visited her salon for an
6:03 am
appointment on monday the public found out about that video it showed pelosi in the salon it's circulated online in as i said it's a covid controversy we're still working on getting access to that video but we know the video shows pelosi with wet hair inside the salon not wearing a mask and we do know though it did appear that she was wearing mask wrapped around her neck you know years not wearing at the time and it just hangs there because the was the first day salons and barbershops were even allowed to reopen outdoors that's why people are mad because still indoors is not allowed until the end of september if all goes well then we talk to us another hairstylist in san francisco, not one that works at this specific salon but she explained to us how frustrating this is i mean heres have had to be extremely patient during this time not being able to open not being able to make money and then people who have been waiting to get their hair done or frustrated because they've had to be patient as well.
6:04 am
>>i think unfair and said the u.s. a good example and i do i do really really love her in a speaker, but and he just needs to follow the rules like all of us as you get some good examples so this is very tough a fair and has actually begun hurtful and yes. >>those speakers the office of hers issued this statement today look at your screen. it says quote the speaker always wears masking hope lies with local covid requirements, this business off for the speaker to come in on monday and told her they were allowed by the city to have one customer at a time in the business. the speaker comply with the rules as presented to her by the establishment, but if you're following your keeping up with the local rules here is clearly you're no one is allowed inside the salon until later this month and again ice as i said earlier if all goes well depends on the numbers so people are pretty angry pelosi
6:05 am
went from the stylus chair to the hot seat real quick and so we're live outside the song this morning hopefully we can catch up with the owner because there are a few people online who live in the area who have said they saw people walking in and going in and getting their hair done before maybe nancy pelosi isn't the first one we just don't know we'll have to ask those questions this morning for now i'm live in san francisco sarah stinson kron 4 news wouldn't be surprising sarah. she wasn't the only one because as you said. >>they told her oh it's ok for us to do one client at a time so apparently that's what they have been doing. you think she would know the guidelines were not that. >>as we said you've been at a neighbor's i've been out and some of these backyard we've all had to work around the covid roles. thank you sarah. >>well, yeah, and well, those new guidelines in san francisco again only allow barbers and hair styles to do business outside and here's an example of exactly that this is video one barber helping clients outside a shop it a lot of owners of salons and
6:06 am
barbershops say that cutting hair outside it just really is not an option for them. >>the city and we all know and order to work outside there has to be lawn. and that's at the rest of it is exposed. that's not going to fly in san francisco as we all know. as you can see my hair is blowing. >>yeah and so you have a lot of cut hair blowing in the wind if they continue with this policy. but here's san francisco's reopening goals any way for the rest of the month by mid september they're hoping to have city hotels reopen for visitors along with outdoor movie theaters and outdoor family entertainment venues like golf courses in zoos, places of worship can also open for individual prayer and for outdoor worship services for up to 50 people and then by the end of the month the city's hoping at that point to allow indoor services like hair and nail salons and barbershops and massage parlors even gyms and fitness center so we'll see if the numbers allow that to happen at the end of the
6:07 am
month, yes, speaking of jim, some owners of studios in san francisco have a lot of questions still because there been so many. >>false starts throughout the pandemic they thought they were open they were close member they could move outdoors and that's been difficult especially with the smoke lately and now with the cooler temperatures coming as we head into fall a lot of them would like to move things in doors sooner rather than later mayor london breed announced a goal to allow one on one personal training and solo use of fitness centers indoors with limited capacity by the end of this month and gym owners can't wait for that. >>we shot and pretty loudly that fitness needs to be a priority for the city. the fitness industry is dying and fitness actually helps with covid healthier people are better equipped to fight covid and how the city doesn't recognize that is beyond us it's just like the city's picking and choosing which is this is just to survive when you when you look outside you see bars, you know, especially
6:08 am
open even the other just you know serving crews on set food as long as you order a drink that we were not a lot of personal training. it really hurts us i did it just feels like they're not taking care of us. >>so you know they've been talking about how different businesses figured out how to skirt the rules wears for them it's a little more difficult and i've seen lot of this james people working outdoors i was at a mall are in over the weekend and there's a whole class going on all of them like in the mall, i was an outdoor mall but yeah, it's tough though you see pictures like that you're breathing in car exhaust is you're trying to write. yes, yeah and then there's the issue of going to the beach or not and the rules kind of changing their on the peninsula pacific is going to close all of the beaches. >>and parking lots which had been open because this is a holiday weekend and they don't want to encourage crowd and that's the goal of all of this we've got kron four's will tran he's standing by in pacifica. >>with more on the story will.
6:09 am
>>they are taking away the parking lots because they figured parking lots are still available on the beaches are closed people just come down here park and then head to the beaches so now it's a 2 pronged approach no beach, no parking lot. that means that hopefully the neighborhoods won't be flooded with cars what they saw on memorial day weekend. i can't believe how fast time has gone by i was here for a memorial day weekend. and here's video of how crowded this speech was the beaches in pacifica in general. they did shut down the parking lots at that time. but so many people just parked at the supermarkets nearby the neighborhoods and just ignored covid-19 this time they realize wait a minute we did this on july 4th when they shut down the beaches in the parking lot and that dramatically cut down the number of people who showed up to pacifica beaches. they are once again doing that and that's in conjunction with a lot of other counties in the bay area santa cruz. they open
6:10 am
their beaches a few months ago and then the spike in coronavirus again so just like pacifica. santa cruz county beaches will also be shut down and their parking lots there is a little bit of good news, it's going to be a hot weekend and a lot of people rush. so the bodies of water because let's face it it's a lot cooler than say the inland areas. you can still come down here and go hiking so long as you practice, social distance, and you wear a mask, but as far as the beaches are concerned. they will shut it down starting on saturday sunrise all the way into tuesday morning. sunrise and that covers labor day weekend. hopefully people will pay attention to that covid-19 is serious business they did not go into details whether or not if they see a lot of people on the beaches if they will forcibly remove you or even give you a ticket, the bottom line is they're taking 2 things the way we've done this story a lot right duryea even marine county they take away the parking lots thinking if
6:11 am
the parking lots night available hopefully the car full of people. it won't be showing up. >>back to you yeah because people are lazy i'm you know i don't want to walk or ride my bike that far so yeah, there's no parking it's hard to go on. >>and james is talking about working out stop and james yeah, i know i pretend to play a good game time now 6.11 california state officers are actually introducing a new way to track. >>the state's covid-19 de defective announced a contract with a private company to develop a brand new electronic reporting system in this comes weeks after a major technical issue with the state's infectious disease reporting system was discovered in a backlog, hundreds of thousands of cases, a lot of controversy at the time. the problem later led to the resignation of fact of the state's public health director state leaders say this new tool will be fundamental as the state works through its new for tier color-coded system and gradually reopen the state.
