of nancy pelosi and that is that she was set up when she made an appointment at the salon and that the owner told her is completely fine one customer at a time and the hair styles who did her hair. confirms the story so hair gate continues this morning, we also heard from. mayor london breed yesterday who not only back to nancy pelosi, but also said we need to move on. >>i take responsibility for trusting other word of the neighborhood salon that i've been to over the years, many times and that tone when they said what we're able to accommodate people one person at a time. and that we can set up that time i trusted that as it turns out it was a setup. so i take responsibility, 4 falling for a set up. >>you know this conversation has kind of blown up in the way that it has distracted us from the real issue. the fact is we don't have good solid
federal leadership. it is helping to facilitate this covid response and over a 180,000 americans have died as a result of this virus. and had we had what we needed from day one from this barrel administration. then we would probably not be in as bad a situation as we are. >>and take a look at your screen you can see a statement put out by the attorney of the hairstylist jonathan bernardo who did bubble pelosi's here on monday. it reads quote this office is in possession of photographs videos and witness information from mosquitoes. the owner of the salon contrary to her prior statements to the press has actually been operating or business during the stay at home orders and similar executive orders limiting in store operations since as far back as april of this year miss chaos is as seen on photographs and video footage styling various clients hair ignoring social distance
guidelines and not wearing protective equipment example masks as recently as a few days prior to speaker pelosi's arrival at the salon on august 31st, the can the attorney continued to say that the owner goes as far as forcing stylists to continue to work for her financial gain and as we know the owner did sell the footage to fox news of pelosi inside the salon so pelosi say it is a complete set up she's apologizing for that we still have not heard back from the owner and in terms of coronavirus the this is a big deal. i mean salons have been closed for months. you know all in the protection of us against coronavirus right. but now we're hearing that people have been continuing to serve people do their hair and that's a big problems. the health department says if they have to go as far as enforcement they will do that but so far nothing has been done on that live on san francisco sarah stinson kron 4 news all right, thank you very

50's and 60's are current temperatures with areas like oakland in the low 60's, san francisco and berkeley each sharing the upper 50's. later today, it will be 6070's and 80's another mild one before a big weekend warm-up which i'm talking about still ahead in your forecast back to you robin all right, thank you let's take a peek at your morning commute which just continues to pick up around the bay area. >>but still no problems and that's really good news. so for those of you who have to use the bay bridge to get into san francisco, check out your drive time it's a very quick 9 minutes, that's your average from the bottom of the maze across the upper deck and over to the fremont street exit 92 still crowd its sluggish on the flat section leaving hayward west of the toll plaza and pretty much stays like this approaching the high rise, but no major issues that you need to stress out about into foster city or send the tail so o'clock and at 12 minutes to make it off to one oh one. here's one across the golden gate smooth and at the limit no problems into or out of san francisco. and a little
bit of crowding on the minutes heads up for some leftover slowing thanks to roadwork 80 south from 9 a tie-up to fruit bell is still very crowded there in fact crews may still be wrapping up. so you may want to take 5.80 instead of amendments but do keep in mind that southbound is the counter commute direction. so if you have to head north from san leandro to oakland we're doing fine with no problems heading northbound downtown. well happening tomorrow barbershops and hair salons in alameda county will be allowed to offer their services indoors, yes, and it can't come too soon for a lot of the folks out there who have been desperate. >>to use those services kron four's reyna harvey live in alameda with more on the story reyna. >>good morning. hey it's a big day for lot of people like you mentioned starting tomorrow we have larger shops and salons that are able to finally offer services for people indoors and i know a lot of people are checking their calendars right now to see if they can reach out to their detentions in barbers to have them squeeze
them in for appointment you might remember barbershops and salons were able to open up their doors outside so a lot of people have made appointments we saw that across the bay area people. being able to visit with their barbers and they're here stylus outdoors but there are a lot of challenges that a lot of the salons face not only could you not offer every service outdoors because of the things you need indoors. the lighting and all of that it's very windy outside so that was problematic. but on a more serious note, the elements and a lot of people have to work in cold conditions and the air quality over the past couple of weeks as you know has not been the best so that was also challenging for a lot of people not not just here salons and barber shops are opening tomorrow, but also outdoor recreational activities, including if you like to the miniature golf or that in cages driving ranges cart racing all of those things also indoor malls. you're going to have to keep the people that visit to a 25% capacity so we have salons and
barber shops that are opening up tomorrow but the same rules apply so if you're making appointments and you're going to any of the shops want to make sure you wear a mask and they're going to have to limit the amount of people that are in there for now reporting here in alameda reyna harvey kron 4 news all right, thank you very much right now. >>well to the east bay now the city of alameda will now find businesses and people who violate public health orders. the city council approved the new ordinance just this week, the first violation will cost $250 a second violation carries a fine of $500. a violation that follows will result in $1000 up to $1000 fine. it is another tool in the fight to stop the spread of covid-19 but there is some mixed reaction among alameda residents. >>it seems to be an impingement on personal liberties accountability with flexibility. it sounds like a good plan was long as they. >>you don't have enough people that patrol and make sure that
they're following protocol. it will be fine, but it's not they might as well not even have an ordinance. >>well the city did say that the overwhelming majority of businesses in alameda or are following the rules. >>well in the south bay casinos in san jose have been given the winning hand so to speak as they get the go ahead to start operating. >>outdoors the casinos must follow strict coronavirus guidelines, including sanitation and face mask. kron four's will tran is live in san jose with those details will good morning. >>good morning robin, the city of san jose they are not letting the casinos gamble with your health and they just like all the other businesses they have to move out doors. you see those tense over my right shoulder. that's what's going to happen that's the location they will be when operation resumes possibly as early as the end of this week or a short time after that the casinos have been shut down for more than 6 months because of covid-19 and that has cost
them. millions of dollars and it's cost the city of san jose millions of dollars as the matrix casino as well as bay one on one they claim that they pay the city of san jose approximately 19 million dollars every year in the form of taxes. so what's going to happen moving forward is they will move half of their card games outside they cannot practice it inside so gamblers you better bundle up if you want to come back to the casinos and robin you talked about the new guidelines, it's pretty much what's going on in tracy star casino's they open up recently as well what's going to happen is the dealers they will have to wear masks, they will have to use hand sanitizers as often as they possibly can the chips obviously are used for gambling they will have to be sanitize the cards, especially poker games and blackjack a couple of things they have options available to them after a certain amount of time this cause will either have to be thrown away. they will have
to be either sanitized or if they don't want to do both of them. they can set them aside for up to 7 days that the virus possible covid-19 die before the cards get back into circulation as far as bay one oh one they don't know when they will open up. it's going to be very tough for matrix they say that because they have strict guidelines not only do they have to pass the health inspections. they're also regulated by the gaming industry once of those to sign off. you can come back, but you can't go into the casinos you'll have to be outside and i know a lot of gamblers are looking forward to maybe drinks and food served at the table that will not happen. back to you. >>all right, thank you very much well and speaking of we do have the latest study from ucsf it found that there is an ongoing high transmission of covid-19 in the latin x community within san francisco, especially in the mission district. researchers set up an accessible testing site at the mission park
station in 6 and a half days more than 2000 people were tested about 9% came back positive in comparison the positivity rate at the embarcadero testing site was just one percent. the san francisco, latino task force for covid-19 says the results show the city needs to focus targeted testing in areas most affected by the coronavirus. >>in many ways it's great that we have testing facilities on the embarcadero in other parts of san francisco. the strategy must be to come into the communities where we know that the prevalence of infection is higher, we know that it's not percent here in the mission district we know the baby was deeply impacted we know the is and so strategizing to ensure that we can get low barrier easy-access testing with quick turnarounds have to be a primary up push. >>yeah, the lap, no the latino task force says that one of the major contributing factors for why covid-19 is prevalent in the latin x community is
mix messaging the task force says it's received complaints about conflicting messages on whether masks really work to curb the spread of the virus. the cdc stands firm in fact that wearing a mask does help. >>still ahead on the kron 00:04am morning news, san francisco police are now banned from participating in next year's 2021 pride parade will have full details on our retirement plan with voya gives us confidence. yeah, they help us with achievable steps along the way... ...so we can spend a bit now,
