5:04 am
tier and the red tier offers you a few things you can do to loosen the restrictions which i think a lot of people were looking forward just kind of getting back to a little bit more normalcy in the red tier, though you can do as i said indoor dining the retail stores, they can open up capacity to 50% gyms can finally open but only at 10% and then movie theaters zoos museums and aquariums can all open at max capacity, you know again this is something the alameda county has been wanting for a long time it's been trying to do everything they can by increasing testing as well as vaccinating people as much as they you know they have a lot of different vaccination centers, but they also have the mass vaccination center at oakland coliseum which is really been helping to push the i belong and the only 2 counties that were left behind yesterday one being in the east bay which is contra costa county and the other being in sonoma county it's unfortunate that those were left behind, but they did not

5:06 am
yellow tier and we can only do that if we do our part so make sure that while you do do these types of activities they can do everything on your part to be a safe as possible that way we can continue to get these cases down and open up more and more as more people get vaccinated for now live in castro valley sarah stinson back to you thanks a lot sarah. >>and to the peninsula now where san mateo county is getting ready to move to the less restrictive orange tier, perhaps as early as next week the county's been in the red tier for nearly 2 weeks already county health officials say that the cases and positivity rates have remained low and they hope that will allow them to move to the orange tier when the state releases its update next week. >>in the say frustration is growing among business owners in contra costa county because they are still in the purple tier, even though their covid case numbers and positivity rates are trending down crown forcefully took all has more. >>one down one to go the contra costa county public health officer says if

5:15 am
keep your eyes on not just the slick roads, but also some to breeze on roads as you make your way in this morning looking out there or tower cam skies are dry for the minute at suit hurt our showers have just push over san francisco back into the bay now they're going to start picking back up over into the east bay rainfall total so far these are likely to jump over the next few minutes because i'm going to keep him updated for you. >>as we continue to see rainfall san francisco seen over a quarter of an inch of it and although oakland itself hasn't 3 quarters of an inch of rain. once you head into the hills above oakland, we have a few spots that are received around 3 quarters of an inch of it santa rose around a half an inch of rainfall over the past 24 hours. so these are some pretty good totals piling up out there and some heavier spots of rainfall likely to be even on top of that as we make our way through the day so right now rain has worked its way back into the central part of the bay, so if you're crossing 92 or even the bay bridge watch out for some strong winds, some wet conditions as rain continues to fall rain is picking back

5:31 am
well and you can expect this line of showers to push a little bit further to the east making its way towards san jose which has been dry for a couple of hours now after heavy rainfall earlier on this morning. let's go a little bit further northward danville walnut creek a little bit calmer for you than it was earlier and we're also a bit calmer out towards antioch in oakley which had some thunderstorm activity again about 30 minutes ago that's moved its way to the north and east still right around eastern solano county for those in rio this step off and on showers continue for solano county on up to vacaville and on over into the portions of sonoma napa and marine counties that you are seeing those on and off showers mostly remaining ally in these areas, but you get the picture here pockets of rainfall pretty much everywhere across the bay area. dry in some spots but rainfall is moving swiftly across the region to don't expected to stay that way. now temperatures are in the 40's for most of the bay this morning. stay warm and stay most importantly dry as you venture out this wednesday
5:32 am
reyna john thank you very busy on the roadways. we have a hot spot out here live a more. >>5 80 eastbound at stone cut. again all lanes were blocked multiple lanes are blocked. a good alternate because you are going to be waiting some time as you head in that direction would be to go north vasco road to highway 4 to try to get beyond that accident also another one 80 westbound to southbound 6.80 at that connector right here in fairfield have another traffic collision there, several more down in fremont i'm tracking 1, 6, a southbound and mission boulevard and obviously there's lots of roadway flooding, you're seeing it on scene at 6.80 south bound ocean boulevard out of fremont a look at your commute into8 the city though as you try to contend with a lot of water across bridges 10 minutes fremont street acts we also have reports accident was on the westbound side here 92. however, i'm not seeing any major delays along the san mateo bridge just 13 minutes for your drive time the richmond sandra fell bridge also another wet commute for you as you head to richmond.
5:33 am
we're tracking this accident stay on top of these bridges for you, but for now daryn james i'll send it over to you thanks reyna 5.32 and then there were 2 only 2 counties in the bay area this morning are left in the purple. >>the others moved into the red tier on tear tuesday i heard that alameda county and solano county would both be upgraded to the less restrictive. >>red tier in fact in solano counties kron four's will tran with more on the businesses the residents there that are obviously very happy to hear this news. well. >>i'm sure they're happier today because of the rain so you can go inside and eat, especially on a day that is cold and wet and john trouble has been all over the weather as far as the impact on us but if you like your food dry and you like to be a war you can go inside once the restaurants open up this morning. yes solano county you are waking up to the red you're in the purple for weeks and that means 25% indoor capacity 10%
5:34 am
at gyms 25% as far as the movie theaters. you are joining 7 out of the 9 bay area counties, waking up in the red and some counties in the bay area. already knocking on oranges door so they might move into even lesser restrictive tier, but the red tier obviously is removed from the most restrictive tier. the purple tier, so we are seeing brighter days ahead as governor gavin newsome talked about brighter days for the customers brighter days for the restaurants. but we got a chance to track down solano county's health officer. they are saying don't let your guard down. >>he wanted shoes places where you see evidence that people are taking care to do proper social distancing. it is most important for those considerations set to be used for people not yet vaccinated particularly us to have an underlying health condition that might make them prone to a bad outcome from this
5:35 am
disease. >>so you're still the first line of defense if you see people not wearing their mask room what night you should take it upon yourself to be seems like a lot of people are wearing their in the numbers prove it. the reason why they went from purple to red because vaccinations are up covid numbers are down and that's why it's going to happen. james darya specially daria you said only 2 counties did you just kind of shame. sonoma and contra costa county because they are the ones get your act together let's get all of the bay area into the red. one key thing i want to mention that life goes on of course and unfortunately people passing away either from covid or just from life, funeral homes will allow people 25% in as far as indoor for services and i know that's important for a lot of people as well. >>no i'm not a minimum just like you know there's only 2
5:36 am
left in the whole day area they would love to know we are getting there maybe next week it's all about the numbers thank you well, and the south bay santa clara county is opting out of the state's plan to have blue shield california takeover vaccine distribution. >>as kron four's rob fladeboe reports the county executive says the plan would mean less vaccine and the loss of local control. >>blue shield california set to assume responsibility for most vaccinations by way of implementing one set of rules for who gets the vaccine and when a goal was to vaccinate as many as 4 million people a week by the end of april but santa clara county is not going to sign up because the plan will not speed vaccinations or improve efficiency and provides little the county isn't already doing said county executive jeff smith tuesday before the board of supervisors, what the tpa agreement would do would be to force us into a new appointment system in any way of accessing appointments. >>which would be a statewide
5:37 am
system and have no control over. >>we would have no control over it the blue shield run program was schedule all vaccination appointments to the states my turn system. >>a statement from blue shield reads in part quote our goal is to save lives by helping all california's equitable access to vaccines, especially in those communities hardest hit by the pandemic we continue to work diligently with local county and state officials health care providers and other important stakeholders to build an enhanced state vaccine network to increase capacity and support the state's goal of being able to administer 4 million doses a week. critics however say that putting one large health care system in charge of vaccinations represents a conflict of interest it would mean that a private insurance company would be collecting all protected health information and personal information. >>for all residents who are vaccinated. a significant problem with confidentiality and trust because.
5:38 am
>>many of our. >>residents said do not. government or others to treat their information with care and security while several county governments oppose the blue shield take over. >>the company points out that a growing number of health care providers hospitals and clinics are in favor along with governor newsome is san jose rob fladeboe kron 4 news. >>still ahead on the kron 4 morning news porch pirates are welcome at one home in oakley will tell you how an east bay woman is opening up for porch to help a community in need. there's an invisible threat in your backyard that could cause deadly heartworm disease for your dog. but not if you protect him every month with heartgard plus, the #1 choice of dogs. digestive and neurological side effects have rarely been reported. ask your vet for heartgard plus. ♪ ♪ ♪
