>>wednesday we appreciate it and you probably due i'm darya folsom and let you get that cup of coffee going we're going to get. >>this wednesday moving along midway through the week we've got the weekend look forward to and i understand still some showers on the horizon, still plans on the timing though guys is actually going to be working more in our favor that what we're showing you yesterday because friday night into very early saturday morning as expecting that dose of rainfall should be clearing out pretty quick in here saturday. so it's nice to bring a little bit of good in lieu of some weather switch apps that we do have just around the corner today and tomorrow are some of our last over mild and now really sunny days that we have been enjoying so take advantage of those to you look outside this morning at our sutro tower cam looking down at san francisco showing you some clear skies as far as any fog is concerned. there's definitely a noticeable increase in cloud cover as showers passed to the south of the bay down into
southern california, not to worry though bay area remains dry while la and san diego are going to be looking at rainfall today. we just got a couple of patches of fog and as i mentioned another nice and dry. one ahead of us, current temperatures are in the 40's and 50's with berkeley oakland and alameda egypt, 49 degrees. pittsburgh, san francisco, pacific of each in the 50's with a few 30's hanging on in the north bay. reyna tom thank you we are tracking your commute for you this morning if you're heading into the city from the east bay to fremont street exit under 9 minutes for your drive time also no major hot spots that we're tracking so far. >>the san mateo bridge and across the peninsula you're under 13 minutes for your drive times there and look at the richmond sandra fell commute heading out of richmond under 8 minutes for you, they're also in walnut creek heading towards at 5.18 on 80 looks good here at about 11 minutes, we're staying on top of those drive times for you but for now daryn james i'll send it over to you both thanks a lot reyna check it out 3 more bay area counties
are now loosening restrictions in the red tier so in total, we've got santa clara san mateo san francisco moran. >>and napa now all in that red tier. again we had yesterday only 7 and county so it's great to see a good bit of the bay area now moving into the red tier we still have sonoma solano contra costa alameda counties remaining in the purple tier and there's going to be you know some differences county to county now as to what can be open. yeah, let's go to kron 4 sarah stinson she's following this you can see what this means as far as the specific. >>businesses that reopen these are the capacity that they're allowed but really a lot of the that are big changes are the indoor dining at restaurants, the indoor gyms movie theaters. so those are also the bigger changes. >>let's go to sarah and see what it means in santa clara county >>means a lot you know we've seen a county move into the red tier. but this one hits a little differently because we actually have a vaccine out
and it seems like we are heading in the right direction and it's we have some good changes ahead as you said the biggest change is indoor live here in santa clara at a movie theater and amc where you can now head inside check it out and see is right behind me and this is an example of one thing that is changing you know it's almost a year ago today that santa clara county's health officer doctor sara cody announce major restrictions in telling people to stay home and quarantine and now year later nearly 111,000 people in santa clara county have gotten coronavirus and almost 1800 people have died but now cases and hospitalizations have dropped to the point beginning today santa clara county will move to the less restrictive red opening tier what does this mean as gone over this before, but it's always good to reiterate and a lot has happened indoor dining can now happen at 25% capacity retail
stores can move up to 50% capacity gyms can go back indoors at 10% capacity. movie theaters where i'm at right now you can go, but they're only 25% capacity said you have to get a ticket zoos museums aquariums also can now open at 25% capacity, you know i think one of the biggest biggest changes that we're going to see will people feel comfortable eating indoors. it's a question we've asked many times i know we've talked to restaurant owners and they're excited they said this is really going to help them serve more people. >>we've been shut down indoors the entire year with the exception of a few weeks of chaos. outdoors been on and off 25 says absolutely going to be you know we're still in the late winter early spring time frame so outside whether it's problematic and you're even with the times. >>and so it's going to be interesting today to talk to
people and we're going to head to san jose we're going to talk to people and see how they feel about this i have talked to people before a lot of people before though it was during when we didn't have a vaccine and they told me i'm not sure i'm quite comfortable sitting indoors. people obviously worried about sharing air with other people. now santa clara counties also lifting their travel order which requiring people to quarantine after they left the county and they travel they flew out of the county so that has been lifted as well so a lot of restrictions loosening good news. we're heading in the right direction for now live in santa clara county sarah stinson back to the right direction indeed thank you very much sara. >>same direction and the north bay, the mayor of napa says that they've moved into the red tier because people are following protocol. he also says the city is being aggressive with covid testing and vaccinations. >>crossing our fingers that we we keep moving out of this vaccines the rollout seems to r getting a little smoot on the on the vaccines.
>>it's great it's a recognition that the efforts center community has made the protocols that are have implemented are working. >>ap is a largely tourists driven city and county officials expect. visitors and locals to continue to wear face masks and socially distance if they enjoy the town over the east bay contra costa county is in the red tier just yet but officials do expect that that will change. >>in the next 2 to 3 weeks the county's currently seeing about 10 daily new cases per 100,000 people and although that is above the red tier threshold of 7 county supervisor john says that state officials told him that they may relaxed that requirement later this week. it's unclear what the threshold would be changed to but one health official says it could be based on reaching certain vaccination numbers. grocery store workers by the way in san mateo could soon be getting a boost in their paychecks the city council voted this week to approve a
hazard pay ordinance that would raise pay for grocery and drugstore workers by $5 an hour. the ordinance is effective immediately it will be in place for the next 90 days and it applies to 10 companies in the city including safeway target trader joe's and chavez supermarket. >>the 6 billion dollar plan to reopen schools in california has cleared its first hurdle in the state capitol the california senate budget committee unanimously passed the plan yesterday that includes 2 billion dollars in grants for covid safety measures for schools that reopen their classrooms by april 1st. it also provides 4 billion dollars for all schools, regardless of their reopening status. but some lawmakers say that they're being left out of the process. >>this looks like not in between the legislature and governor's office but hostage negotiations between the cta and the governor see winning.
>>both chambers are preparing for a full vote on the plan tomorrow. 5 '07 is the time and another big story that we're following this morning. sutter health apparently is canceling thousands of vaccine appointments across the bay area. >>because of a supply shortage with kron four's will tran live in castro valley with more on what's going on. well. >>and this impacts 95,000 people said or how they're having problems like many other health providers too much demand not enough supply in fact this dates back to early february when they actually had to suspend appointments for first says at that time and now it looks like they will have to suspend second-round doses of the 95,000 appointments that have been canceled 90 of them include second-round doses that in a perfect world that they would have gotten their shots from now until march 9th now it looks like they don't know exactly when sutter health will reach out to those people over the next 7 to 10
days to try to get them back on the list for the second round they're assuring those people who got their first round it's okay it's not incredibly urgent at this particular time for you to get your second dose as soon as they get more vaccines from the state they will try to get those people back in line to get your doses as far as the dose they say they have limited supply so they have to cancel about 5,000 appointments from now until march 9th and same situation james, an area they too don't know when they'll get the first round as well so this is ongoing problem we saw this happen in san francisco with stony center and that took about a week or so for them to get back up and running as well the state says they're trying their very best. simple math and i was horrible at math, but i to know too much demand not enough supply so it doesn't take a. mathematics wizard to gain center running to the same problem skies back
to not good news, thank you will. >>5 '09 right now and still ahead antioch police tonight in an officer put a knee to the neck of a man to the point of causing his death. hear what the 911 call. what and the pandemic is costing everybody more money including health care companies. bush should you foot the bill for that and after the break the debate over whether or not to pass president biden's 2 trillion dollar covid relief bill begins today, we're live in washington d c. >>and today will be another dry one with temperatures a bit above our seasonal averages back to the 60's for yet another one big changes in the rest of your forecast though i'll have that coming up. >>and we're staying on top of an accident out in vacaville right now a hot spot i'm tracking right now your commute into the city you can do that in under 10 minutes to the fremont street exit will have more on both those coming have more on both those coming up after the break.

people. >>probably going to out there. yeah, i hope so anyway that's when the waterfalls are flown really good and yet the snow melts occurring that's make. she's so excited for hopefully a nice summer up in the sierra especially yosemite national park good to see some of that progress happening now looking at this year this morning you can see a whole lot of it just yet we are looking at conditions out there that are about to be rather snowy again for areas like yosemite national park in i 80 heading up to tahoe. so we've been pretty dry lately not just for the bay, but also up into the mountains that changes this weekend as we see the return of some rain and mountain snow fall something we really need to start seeing. >>after a dry stretch of weather almost all the way through february. we had a few rain showers in there. but it wasn't enough, you can see some cloud cover this morning that actually has to do with the system to the south of the bay area. this low pressure area right here is going to move further to the east throughout the day today and it's going to bring with it some rain to la and san diego, the first rain that some of
these areas have seen and well over a month. bay area stays dry today and we continue to stay dry on into tomorrow too. but after this first passage of a low pressure area there's another storm system right now sitting up in the gulf of alaska that's going to dip down our direction later on this week. now the timing of this is actually going to work out really nicely. i've been hearing from some of you that are like i hope it doesn't rain all day on saturday looks like saturday is actually going to clear out really nicely for us because this rain is going to hit in the middle of the night friday night leading into early saturday morning and at times it is actually going to result in some pretty good showers out there so this is good news is having a little interference with any sort of weekend plans you may have. but a good dose of rain for the bay and snow in the sierra nevada. so friday night into early saturday morning our first dose of rain saturday and sunday we drive back out and then that followed up by more rainfall into monday and tuesday of next week. so we get the storm door opening wide and it looks like next week is going to be bringing
us some very helpful precipitation. as for today though we're still in the midst of some of our nice sunny weather 50's and 60's at the coast solid 60's elsewhere in the bay and knowing that there are changes just around the corner now you do want to enjoy this kind of stuff seeing carlos in redwood city back at 65 today, temperatures may not be in the low 70's anymore, but you're still in the upper 60's so do get out there enjoy some of this warm weather and no it's not going to be this warm for much longer so you want to savor it. sonoma and napa in the mid to upper 60's, pittsburgh at 68. well santa rosa in petaluma each at 66. you look ahead at next 7 days today and tomorrow, swarm ones after that temperatures start to slide downwards friday night or initial chance of rainfall saturday and sunday we dry back out but even with the sunshine were noticeably cooler. monday and tuesday, even cooler yet with rainfall continuing reyna don thank you i'm already tracking to hot spots this morning.
>>this one starting here in vacaville 80 westbound at cherry glen road. a traffic collision in the air. we know one lane is open so that's going to be slow commute for folks trying to commute there also heading down here to san carlos northbound 1, 1, at holly street. so too hot spots we're going to continue to track that and keep eyes on that. but as you head into the city right now look at that to the fremont street exit under 9 minutes for your drive times the traffic is still flowing really nicely we're at the limit here across the san mateo bridge under 13 minutes for you there. the richmond sandra fell commute heading out of richmond look at that under 8 minutes so we'll stay on top of those hot spots and your drive times but for now james back to you. >>all right, thank you very much. so we've got president joe biden's pick to lead the office of management and budget withdrawing her nomination. neera tanden needed just 51 votes to be confirmed, but democratic senator joe mansion and a number of other moderate republicans said that they just couldn't supporter citing several of her past tweets in which she attacked members of both parties. this is the first high-profile defeat of
one of president biden's cabinet nominees. meanwhile, miguel cardona has been sworn in as education secretary this clears the way for him not only president biden's effort to reopen the nation's schools. the 45 year-old former public school teacher won praise for his efforts to reopen schools in connecticut. cardona's top priority will be getting students back on campus 5 days a week within biden's first 100 days in office. >>time now is 5 19 and in national congress appears poised to pass president biden's emergency covid relief package will be some good news for desperate americans, but it could be a very close vote in the senate we have our washington correspondent alexandra le mon joining us live with what more we can expect out of all this alex good morning. >>and they're good morning while democratic lawmakers say they want to provide more help to americans including more stimulus checks as soon as possible. and that's why senate democrats say it's possible they could begin debate and a series of votes on the stimulus package later
today. >>we're now on track to have enough vaccine. supply for every adult in america by the end of may president joe biden says his administration has made great strides in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and he wants that progress to continue this is a national imperative that we get our kids back into the classroom. safely and as soon as possible the president says for schools and businesses to fully reopen and life to return to normal congress needs to pass his one-point-nine trillion dollars american rescue plan that's why the president worked with senate democrats on tuesday to ensure enough support for the package that would deliver money for vaccines schools, unemployment, stimulus checks and more american people are overwhelmingly in support of this legislation. a majority of democrats independents and in many polls republican support this bill. >>it seems the only group that doesn't support this bill are senate republicans. and house
republicans. >>democratic leader chuck schumer said the senate will move forward with the bill as soon as possible. but republicans criticize the legislative package saying it's full of items unrelated to the pandemic so we'll be fighting this in every way that we it is my hope. >>but at the that senate republicans will unanimously oppose it. >>now democrats hope to have votes in the senate done by the end of the week that way. the u.s. house can vote on the final version of the stimulus package on monday and send it to the president's desk reporting live in washington alexandra le mon. thanks center. >>right now attorney general javier becerra is warning certain health care providers that they are not allowed to charge certain patients to covid fee. >>the fee is they're saying used to be reimbursed companies for cleaning disinfecting personal protective equipment. >>you're not allowed of your doctor you're not allowed to
charge a patient who is in medicare al den to cal or medicare that fee. if you have private insurance. you do have the right to ask your provider why are being charged to covid fee as well. >>the airline industry says they're losing millions of dollars a day they testified telling congress they need help i'm rashad washington off more on this story. coming up.

dramatic impact the pandemic is having on their industry you're flying about 40% of the passengers that we used to louisiana republican congressman garret graves says it's important to keep the industry alive. we actually have the bandwidth. we have the capacity of our airline industry of the ability to have business. >>recreational travel tourism travel available for when the economy picks back up again last year the airline industry received just over 100 billion dollars in previous covid relief packages have in the aggregate i would say you know 10's of thousands are up to a 100,000 jobs, including contractors. lawmakers praised airline leaders for their enhanced safety measures but oregon congressman peter defazio is calling on the industry to be tougher on passengers who are not following the rooms, the jerks who get on and on a lollipop or simple bottled water for 6 hours. >>things they need to hear that you can remove your mask.
briefly, the house approved covid relief bill includes 30 billion dollars for the industry, but it's not clear if the version working its way through the senate will include the same amount in washington rashad hudson. >>we'll take a break 5.26 coming up next on the kron 00:00am morning news, a shoe store in san francisco is burglarized not once but twice in a single day was all caught on camera we're going hear from the store's owner coming up after the break.

some rainfall for some of our southern california neighbors later on today. bay area stand dry though just a couple of pockets of fog to no doubt there we don't have anything widespread but do watch out for those patches of fog, especially. for further south of the bay area like on the southern end of the peninsula and down towards hayward and fremont current temperatures are in the 40's and 50's for most oakland alameda and san francisco, each of 49 right now while napa petaluma nevado and santa rosa, little bit cooler down in the 30's. reyna thank you so you already started this morning with hot spots we have one here in vacaville. >>80 westbound at cherry glen road. they do have one lane open there so if you are traveling north or west bound rather if you're traveling westbound give yourself a little more time if you are in the vacaville area also down here in san carlos, northbound 1 one at holly street and alternate for you would be able to take 82 that's right there. next to one oh one and jason. also your commute into the city right now still nice

businesses. that you know people are going to be able to go inside. >>at a bigger capacity. just because most businesses they get most of their revenue by people either shopping or eating inside the store, so this can be really nice and i know people are itching to get back to doing more activities and mean able to do that. but officials here in the city are saying. that's great and all, but let's just still be a little careful because we still we are still in a pandemic let's listen to what they had to say. >>well we have so many signs of hope our covid-19 variance the party actor and we are monitoring and watching the >>when you're at a restaurant waiting for your table keep your mask on when your waiter walks up to the table put your mask on when you go to the restroom put your mask so you
