8:00 am
with us on a tuesday, i'm darya folsom and i'm james fletcher the first day of december. >>good morning welcome to december. sure looks at that we got a lot of and some cool weather around yeah all we need is a little rain and snow not yet. but the fog is certainly there. i wish we had the rain and little snow to will save up for christmas maybe come outside this morning, it's a little gray for some of us we are seeing clear spots for inland areas, but bayside areas definitely not so much. >>look at this fog. that's hovering right over the bay itself u c berkeley is fine and you can see out the distance on the left there the sales force tower sticking up through this thin veil of fog which may be very thin, but it is causing some visibility issues for some of us. temperatures today will rise to the 50's out the coast. well 60's can be expected for some of our inland areas. we are definitely starting this morning cool ahead of those nicer temperatures later on look at where we're at right
8:01 am
now palo alto double in livermore concord each in the 30's, upper 30's for these areas while santa rose at 31 degrees or one spot below freezing, san mateo and alameda egypt, 45 some of our fog year areas there little bit more moderated because of that marine layer that's hovering overhead i'm talking what else to expect today later on in your forecast but robin is talking about how that fog has had an impact on your morning commute. impact it has had. i don't lost the game, the bridge looking this and driving in these conditions, john is not good it's not safe. it is challenging for sure we're checking in on the bridge right now you can see daria in the midst the to searching it's dangerous on the roads this morning. we have lots of people are doing they're like where am i less of the toll plaza it's going to be like all the way across the span so be careful out there folks headlights and wipers slowdown
8:02 am
don't tailgate you know the drill but 40 minutes here over to the peninsula. we cannot see it here at the bay bridge toll plaza, but it's definitely on the span it's on the lower deck. we had a major accident inside of the tunnel which is out of the way so the line here is normal it's jam from west grand very foggy across the span 12 minutes into san francisco. >>delay free eastbound out of san francisco will check more bridges coming up james darya you rob i've made over here next to james the big story this morning as what's going to happen to the state the governor is warning that california might have a stay at home order like we did back in the beginning of the pandemic and all has to do with the covid-19 numbers are continuing to climb we actually have a graph that shows the cases and the deaths. >>and you can see in recent days both have spiked in fact in the last week alone. california has averaged over 14,000 cases. >>her day which is pretty incredible so leaders if they look at the projections and remember a lot of people gather for thanksgiving and they weren't supposed to they're worried we could run
8:03 am
out of hospital beds, even by january kron four's will tran actually following that part of the story for us coming to us live from daley city now with the latest will. >>james darya the beds in the emergency care unit or intensive care unit. i should say they're at 89% capacity right now, and there's a lag because daria you mentioned though with the thanksgiving holiday. so those numbers could come out over the next week or so and with the projections it probably will be worse before it gets better which is why the governor he got his hands on hundreds if not thousands. bets here at seton medical center earlier this year because he realize that covid-19 was going to yo yo but even now it's exploding were hospital beds across california. they are 89% capacity and unless they put that brakes on this according to the projections by christmas eve. it could be at 91% capacity and then for the projections could have it at
8:04 am
112% sometime late december early january which obviously means more patients than beds and this whole thing was supposed to slow down the spread of covid-19 not to overrun the hospital systems. right now the way it is going it with more than certainly overrun the staff the equipment, the beds at the hospitals which is why in a few hours from now the governor will have a news conference and he could issue a shelter-in-place what we saw back in march. >>to make determinations of deep purple in those purple tier status. that is equipment more in line with the stay at home order. that folks were familiar with in the beginning of this year the high case numbers that we've seen in the last week and 10 days have not even hospitals yet we know that it takes about 2 weeks.
8:05 am
>>2 weeks because of that lag and a lot of people they did stay with their immediate family, but let's face it a lot of people did not a lot of people travel they were trying to be careful. but nonetheless it was always a risk to travel, especially with the spike in covid-19 cases which is why governor newsome could issued that order at noon or tomorrow, and it appears that he did not tacitly admits it is as far as doctor fauci approving governor newsom's decision or possible decision but even doctor fauci says unless things are handled on a national level it looks like it could get out of control for the entire united states by late december as well so they seem to be in lock step as far as the projections james darya thank you we'll tell about the numbers, let's take a look at them in california right now we've recorded more than one 0.2 million covid cases. >>california has had more than 19,200 people die of covid and that includes. >>the deaths in the bay area
8:06 am
1935. >>well let's talk a little bit about the north bay as we mentioned earlier in county is the only county right now in the bay area that's not in the purple tier, the most restrictive tier. it's still in red, but the numbers are trending in the wrong direction we've got more than 5,000 total cases with more than a 189 total hospitalizations these are the numbers provided by the marin county health department on their dashboard and the problem is if these numbers continue to move in the wrong direction then read county to may also slip into the purple category kron 4 sarah stinson live for us there with more on this story tara. >>james murren county has been in the red tier for about 3 weeks now and the worry is that they will go backwards into the purple tier as you said, and that is because the cases are rising here. they are ported 31 new cases on monday still waiting to see if there's any update on the case numbers today. no new deaths or hospitalizations but we're
8:07 am
still waiting to see the results from what happens after the thanksgiving holiday. we know that people did gather even though that was not recommended and so we're going to be seeing most likely another bad trend of increasing cases now there are 6 cases per day cases per day here in marin county not bad when you compare it to the neighboring counties like sonoma county. but 19 cases per day and napa counties with 28 cases per day both of those of course and purple tier because the rest of the bay area is in that tier. but everyone in marin county is bracing for what is to come as health officials believe it won't long before marine joins the other counties in that restrictive tier, we know more than 71% of schools are back in the classroom for some kind of in person learning whether it's a hybrid or not and one month from now the high school district was planning to go back to in person, but we will see as cases again are on the
8:08 am
talk to people here in marin county including a man who says he was optimistic that they would stay in the red terror move in the right direction, but now he's worried after seeing what happened during the thanksgiving holiday. >>i'm not certain because i know of people who got together with thanksgiving. know if someone that. a family member it tested positive. and she went to see her friend so. and i think people need to use some some good judgments during the holiday season this much as possible. >>now is the that is so crucial so important to really hunker down and follow the rules really stay home as much as possible as we head into christmas hanukkah because we're already in a surge. but now we're a surge on top of another surge because of the holiday season now not only
8:09 am
residents worried about the holiday season in the current case right cases rising so is the health department so we have a live report a live interview rather set up with the health department for 8.30 so make sure you stay tuned in and you'll hear the anchors asking all the questions that we have regarding the county in the future for now reporting live in larkspur sarah stinson kron 4 news all right sarah, thank you we'll stay updated on the story. thank you. >>when they do get a vaccine who's going to get it 327,000 doses of pfizer's covid vaccine could be coming to california in the next few weeks right now they're waiting for fda regulators to allow the emergency use and once that happens then the first batch could be here the 3rd week of december. but with the small initial supply that means it will be by priority and they have to decide whose first. >>it seems likely that it will be health care workers who had direct patient contact first.
8:10 am
the second group i think little bit up in the air whether will be the essential worker group or the older people and people with a medical illness is probably in that first group of healthcare workers will be older people in nursing homes since there such an incredibly high risk. >>in those first 2 groups that doctor things about a 150 to 200 million people could be vaccinated by april that leaves about a 130 million other people who are you know consider just healthier americans that aren't that at risk and they could get the vaccine. the great majority of people by the end of summer. >>as we get closer to getting a coronavirus vaccine to the general public the department of homeland security is warning of new scams that could pop up in the coming weeks, we have jessica managed to explain. >>as californians eagerly await a covid-19 vaccine. some scammers 80 looking to take advantage so to i think that they can capitalize doing we've been dealing with this for nearly what 10 months now and the fact that the scans to start happening is he
8:11 am
disheartening from all the gals and with the better business bureau of northeast, california is on the lookout for scams, especially after hearing a warning from the department of homeland security about the potential for fake vaccine sales. agents have already made more than 1600 seizures, a phony products claim to prevent or treat the disease. and when real vaccine is approved they worry people may be more likely to fall victim and those that have been living unfortunate my face year. those are the ones that i think they're more susceptible to because again we're all trying to get blocked allies to keep your family and your wallet safe. she says you should always talk with your doctor or licensed medical professional first before seeking any vaccine, stressing that covid-19 vaccines will not be sold over the internet to the general public and to ignore any kind of unsolicited offers for vaccinations through emails calls or text messages what they're trying to do is one day your personal banking information if you buy something online to you. just
8:12 am
finding ways to hack into your computer systems and 3 just. >>blakely just came out where your computer reminding everyone to have patience as a vaccine will likely not be available to most people for several months to make it the taxiing one day there is protocol that we all have to follow it sounds too good to be true you always verify with better a county health department jessica mensch fox 40 news. >>it all the time and still ahead on the kron 00:00am morning news you're not supposed to party because of covid but a bunch of students in the east bay did and now in person classes are canceled for them. but one young california point is doing the right thing we're going to show you why he's cutting his neighbors lawns for free and first in the buzz why steph curry says he feels old and what some star dads are doing that probably embarrassing their kids. ♪

8:29 am
>>in 29 right now and we are checking out the weather on the first day of december and i got all fogged up i went over the golden gate was fine. many hours here and.
8:30 am
>>couple other bridges to we've john following that robin as well because it's impacting traffic but let's start with the forecast good morning. yeah, yeah fog that's the big issue this morning even more so than the chilly temperatures we have inland, we're looking at our live camera from berkeley if we can pull that up on max one it is something that is going to be. issue for much of the morning ahead of us is this fog, especially right along the bay itself, brighter skies are u c berkeley that is something that we are going to be taking a look at. for sure we are not having that camera for some reason so we must not have it. so we'll send it over to robin right now with a look at traffic. robin that fog has caused some issues on roadways san mateo bridge is one of the areas. dense fog out there currently take a look at that dangerous john you're absolutely right san mateo the bay bridge as well, yeah it's like we're playing a game on this morning's edition of where is the 70 oh bridge. it
8:31 am
is dense this morning chp issued a fog advisory for the bay bridge, 70 oh bridge. >>it's hard to see working away across the span here so be extra careful out there makes me very nervous driving through the fog, your drive time is not changing the traffic is moving well we just can't see it so 14 minutes to the peninsula. another example of how foggy it is on 80 wasn't here 30 minutes ago didn't look like this, but it's covering up to 80 overcrossing and we had an accident on the lower deck that could have been related to the fog as well so a minor weights at the pay gates, you're looking at 12 minutes into san francisco and still tracking this crash and one a creek south 6 ad a treat a little happy here leading up to the scene and then we have the typical stop and go traffic out of concord merging from 2.42 on to 6.80 saw keep my eyes on this we'll have another check of traffic coming up a little bit later james darya thanks 31 is the time let's get to our top story. this half hour governor gavin newsome warning that californians could be looking at a possible stay at home order if covid-19 cases
8:32 am
continue to climb and that's what's happening in the fear is that hospitals will get overrun with patients in the last week alone. >>california has averaged 14,000 positive tests per day. and if that keeps up then there won't be room if you get sick kron four's actually zavala has the very latest now from sacramento. >>covid-19 cases are exploding across california now averaging more than 14,000 of them per day this is a new peak for the state state leaders have serious concerns for hospital systems across california if these trends continue we're going to have to take much more dramatic. >>arguably drastic action governor gavin newsome says he's waving the red flag as california sees a surge in covid-19 cases and hospitalizations he warned monday a stay at home order could be coming to make determinations of deep purple moves i in those purple tier status. that is equipment more in line with the stay at home order. that folks were
8:33 am
familiar with in the beginning of this year purple tier counties make up more than 99% of the state's population, the warning comes as state leaders released concerning projections for the state's health care system without any change of behavior state leaders say hospital bed capacity could be filled up to 78% statewide by christmas eve, intensive care units could be overfilled to 112% statewide by early january. we don't anticipate. >>this this is in the absence of. >>making better decisions over the last week the state's positivity rate climbed to 6.2% with an average daily tpcase count at more than 14,00 high case numbers that we've seen in the last week and 10 days have not even begun taking hospitals yet we know that it takes about 2 weeks. >>the governor says he and other state leaders are still working out the details of what a possible stay at home order might look like going forward. he says they'll be making the decision in the coming days, reporting in sacramento, ashley zavala kron
8:34 am
4 news we get a vaccine. >>really the only way to stop coronavirus from spreading is things like california's look at a stay at home order wary mass staying away from other people, and that's obviously something we'll be watching as we head into the month of december with new infections possibly rising in the wake of thanksgiving travel. so we'll have to see where the numbers go but we could be very well looking at things returning to where they were at beginning of the pandemic let's find out more about the state that we're in right now with a hammer in county health officer doctor matt willis good morning doctor. so we're not in a good state by all accounts said the covid cases keep going up hospitalizations are a concern at this point. so is that the only thing the state has left to do to control the virus since there's no vaccine yet. >>right well, you know we've been using the blueprint framework for determining where what policies we should be right now is service also that as a tool because everyone's purple with a few exceptions miranda still in the in the red tier. so it
8:35 am
makes sense to be considering what additional policies we could use to make make even more of a difference because right now case rates continue to rise in the purple tier so we're you know we're hearing from the governor there may be additional policies and what we call the purple so counties that are even more trouble might have additional restrictions additional hours of curfew and other steps. it's >>you know part of this comes down to enforcement to unless there's a actual meaningful way of enforcing these these directives. you know i it's hard to imagine that. many people will follow them is there any movement on that front on how we might better enforced these restrictions. >>well at the end the day it's important to recognize if people don't really understand this for their own selves and their own we're in because we're not going to be able to ultimately in force their way out of this because we're talking about everyday behaviors in murray county 260,000 residents are expected
8:36 am
becoming the face every time they step out. so yes there are some enforcement efforts know we can offer citations like parking tickets for people that are out public without a mask on. that's that's a less effective tool that i think just i'm having everyone really understand and developing a culture of responsiveness and responsibility to ourselves and one another and that's i think the message we're trying to send from public health right now is that now more than ever. we need everyone to be taking the steps we've been advocating for all we are under threat, you know we we're looking very closely at the numbers, you know 2 weeks after thanksgiving. we're expecting we would see increases in cases we're already seeing a really rapid rise in cases we we cannot afford to see an even steeper incline in our case that will overwhelm our hospitals the scary thing is if people didn't listen for thanksgiving, christmas could be even worse because families are going to want to gather they're going to want to get together. >>nothing seems to be working. we have months and months to go before everybody gets a
8:37 am
shot in the arm. >>yeah, i would i would you know it's it is obviously concerning to see case rates rising. i would say that nothing is working and we know that some of our strategies are working in britain we are in the red tier, currently in that one percent of the population. that is not in purple across the and i attribute that to to our community itself obviously we've free priority you're testing resources contact tracing et cetera, ultimately at the end of the day it comes down to everyone's everyday behavior and if we have any credit or any lesson. for other counties in terms of our ability to maintain here. i think it's again just if we all understand what it from our own everyday recognizing that when when when infection occurs it's between 2 people were too close together one of them may not be covering their face they may not even recognize that they're infected and someone else becomes infected. and protests that with this change of transmission and always have the control to will above by all accounts moran is headed
8:38 am
into this purple with everybody else you're not a bubble. you it's what we have closed borders and everybody in the bay area's kind gotta be in the same boat if you're not already. >>exactly yes, no county has an island you know, and it's definitely faint praise to be you know read you know we're orange couple weeks ago are not defined success that point is as being moved into the nest next most restrictive tier. it is an opportunity i think to reflect on why are rates may be increasing more slowly than others. and i credits behavior of our community. >>so let me ask as we look forward then a and talk a bit about the vaccine. we know that with the operation warp speed. processes are beginning to be formed as to how to distribute the vaccine once it becomes available into the up to the local jurisdictions like the county level to get this out to the people at what point in the process will folks are murray county another bay area counties begin to communicate them with leaders on the national front to try and implement this plan that they're putting together have you heard any word yet.
8:39 am
>>absolutely and we've been working you know what the very closely on the vaccine distribution plan. it's looking like that the pfizer is going to be the first to cross the line here and into state and into the local as early as mid to late december. that will be dedicated to are our highest priority, your tier, one a. residents that are essential health care workers and others who are really on the front lines. we're we're working to establish the ultra cold storage unit that the refrigeration that's necessary for the coach and for that particular product and working with the hospitals and clinics, skilled nursing facilities, et cetera to make sure that their their staff are teed up for that vaccine when it arrives as early as as the end december so when it comes as don't. >>we don't need to ask you can we get it can we get can we get it you're going to tell the people who are going to get it first and then we'll all come months later. >>that's right. yeah, it's important to recognize that you know there's going to be a casing to this that will be
8:40 am
measured over and it will start with because the limited vaccine supply it will start with those people who need it most who can help us especially the surges is reminding us how important is that we protect our essential health care workers who are on the front lines first because they need to stay in the workforce and they need to protected because they are being exposed so that's going to the first year. and then over months that follow i would imagine for the general population we're talking about springtime maybe early spring for for the vaccines may not be the pfizer that point the moderna vaccine. there are other vaccines that are coming online more supply. well they ought to get that out to the community as a whole. a couple months later and because we're talking timelines and you are in the specifically in marin county the last county. >>to move into the most restrictive tier in the bay area i'm going to ask you flat out. do you have a timeline is it tomorrow when are you going to go into that restrictive chair in marin county. >>yeah, i mean it's it's challenging to predict in on obviously looking at the numbers closely every single
8:41 am
day look at our hospitalizations right now we only have 6 people in the hospital 3 in the icu it's concerning that hospitalizations lag behind case he says you know it's about 2 weeks before we actually see the spike in cases after he sees i hospitalizations after spikes up and suspected cases i'm concerned about our hospitalizations we're looking maybe her. purple tier, this or the week after that if there's not a change in the slope and that's the message to our committee is we want point that most restrictive tier. the time take action is now ok sorry and just you you give up for a second there so not today or tomorrow, but maybe next week. >>yeah, yes, so we're looking at next week or the of the week after that if the projections continue in the direction they're going okay, thanks so much doctor will as we appreciate your time and your candor this morning as we work our way through this very difficult subject. thank you again. we have the power to harness california's abundant wind and solar energy, but it's not available all day long. use less from 4 to 9 pm and we can protect california
