7:00 am
>> from the area's local news station. you're watching the kron 4 morning news at 7. >> and 7 o'clock on a tuesday just keeps happening again and again. you wake up and hope all over. it seems like on a weekly basis. we're stumbling on a will stand by the weather center with what looks to be a very warm tuesday, john. yeah. this tuesday, not like the others that we've been seeing. at least we're getting into the 80's for today. so if you are one of those people that has a tuesday off. maybe good chance to get outside. and with the sunscreen and hopefully some water and hand get out there and enjoy this nice day is going to be really warm, though. yesterday. we've noted already felt really warm. and today noticeably warmer than that was even skies are beautiful in crystal clear this morning. your view from mount tam showing a bit of a breeze noticeable, but a really nice view of the sunrise visibility at its max because of an offshore wind keeping fog a marine layer pushed well off shore. breezy
7:01 am
us for the north bay. and that's actually where most of our high wind advisories are in effect right now. remaining in effect until 10:00am this morning. as far as skies go. well, it's dry. crystal clear conditions, as you just saw and temperatures, although cool this morning. definitely not remaining that way. daytime highs climbing into the upper 70's to low 80's later on talking more about that. still to come. reyna. tom, thank you. that multiple problems along the bay bridge and the richmond sandra fell bridge. >> just some reports of another accident here at the bridge. but it looks like they already have that clear. but you're seeing delays from that. we also have a stalled vehicle here earlier, 12 minutes to that fremont street exit the we're almost up to about 20 minutes for you to make it into the city. we also are recovering from the accident along the richmond, sandra fell bridge. now we're back down to 12. they have that cleared off of the bridge. but you're still seen residual delays. we have not had any accidents or issues along the san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula there. we have an accident than here and union city, though, along southbound
7:02 am
8.80, and whipple road alternate would be 5.80 or to 38 to get around that and checking on things along 1 one. hey towards menlo park here at 31 minutes. we're staying on top of that and more for now. back to you. >> and i'm going reflect on the feeling i have of impending it. we have so much to look forward to so much promise and potential of where we are and so much reason for hope right now. i'm scared. >> so much concern because we've seen a huge increase in cases of covid, especially among younger people. that's not the trend we want to see. that was the director of the cdc warning about this 4th wave of the coronavirus that they're seeing for many comes as more bay area counties as we know, are reopening school districts are welcoming students back in person learning. so obviously this is going to be something we have to watch really carefully. we know that the latest data shows the 7 day daily average of new cases has gone up more than 10% from the week before. and when it comes to the 7 day average of deaths that also
7:03 am
has increased by more than 2%. this despite the fact the 72% of americans who are 65 or older have already received at least one dose of their vaccine. millions of americans, particularly younger americans story mentioned now seeming to be the most vulnerable in terms of the virus. sad news nationwide. but us in the bay area are numbers seem to be pretty good and tear tuesday. >> so if those numbers hold, then we could see alameda and napa counties. >> the latest to hit a lighter reopening in the moderate level. they turn orange like them are in san francisco. san mateo and santa clara be good news for businesses with a kron 4. sarah stinson standing by live in alameda county this morning. >> with the story. good morning, sir. >> and when you enter the orange shared means you can do more things and businesses can serve more people indoors like this restaurant here behind me in castro valley opening up right now as we speak. they can search serving more people
7:04 am
indoors if this does in fact happen. this is dead because real food kitchen. it's smelling delicious. bacon ice all pancakes and you could eat indoors at 50% capacity. if alameda county napa county, the 2 counties on the brink of going into the orange tier. what else does this mean though, means retail stores cancer. people at 100% from churches can go up to 50% along with movie theaters and indoor dining. as i said, expanding indoor gyms to 25% from 10% and wineries and breweries can also serve people 25% capacity bars outdoors. san mateo was the first county to enter the orange followed by san francisco more in santa clara county's the orange to requires a maximum daily case rate, 3.9 per 100,000 people at last check alameda county has an adjusted case rate of 3.3 cases daily along with a one 0.4% positivity rate. so
7:05 am
really the numbers are looking good now we're just waiting to hear if in fact napa and alameda counties will move ahead into the orange tier. but then if they do it all comes down to this decisions from you and are we comfortable going indoors. how we've been vaccinated or not, then at least we have an option to stay indoors, especially when it gets a little chilly. fortunately today. is going to be a beautiful day according to john shrable. so sitting doors. maybe the better option for live in castro valley. sarah stinson, back to you. thanks a lot, sarah. >> time now 7. '05. also happening today out in the east bay. we have a mass vaccination site opening up for the first time at 6 flags, hurricane harbor in concord. wouldn't it be fun if the kids because they're going to do 16 and writers. >> they could have a roller coaster ride and a shot in the same day. >> but i don't think they're right on rise at the same time, it's drive-thru clinic, though. let's go to conference. he only has his iowa. >> that is a good idea and
7:06 am
they should get that single johnson and johnson shot that would probably be ideal for for some of the young folks. but yes, we don't know what what a shot people will be getting today, but it is opening up today. in fact, step is just now arriving to try to set up this drive-thru. vaccination site here at 6 hurricane harbor in concord. it's all set up here in the in the parking lot. and you can see some of the staff members driving by right now on those let's take a look at your screen, when you drive through the vaccination site. it is along the water world parkway and you must make an appointment to get vaccinated over here on this side. the great thing about it is for free. so not a problem. just make that appointment to get it through. now. we told you yesterday that contra costa county is expected to expand vaccination eligibility. this week for every aid for everyone. ages 16 and over. now the county hasn't given us a solid date yet the don't know for sure about their vaccine supply. now this is
7:07 am
ahead of governor newsom's mandate which marks april 15th. for the statewide 8 for vaccinating eligibility for 16 and older but as soon as we get the actual date, we will try to get that to you in fact, going to try get the ground right now and see if i could talk to someone and see if they have any idea of when that is. but we do know that today, at least for today. it is 50 and over they're also expecting to give out 11,000 vaccinations by the end of this week. so just keep it here, kron 4 and i'll try to give you the latest. back to you guys. very good will come back to visit you again. thank you only lose down the water slide to get the shot. i still think you'd be a great idea. >> but the problem is will there be the supply because we're opening up more vaccine eligibility. we have to think can you keep up with the demand kron four's. dan kerman takes a look at that. >> just a few weeks. there be no rules, no limitations as it
7:08 am
relates to the ability to get a vaccine administered. >> it was thursday when the governor announced those 50 and older would be eligible for a covid-19 vaccine. april first and those 16 and over would become eligible on april 15th and we are ready. we have been ready. we've got multiple mass vaccination sites. you know dirt to accept. does that come in marine county. they're taking steps to prepare for the additional demand and hopefully additional supply of doses we've asked the state for additional staffing resources. the state has just sent us 30 additional vaccinators. >> so we are, you know, building up our operations to match the message supply that arise. they're also taking steps to make sure under-served communities are overwhelmed by increased demand. the way we do that and more in is to dedicate certain days and certain communities. so we have a vaccine operations that one for 5 days. i dedicate your monday and tuesday access for only people from certain
7:09 am
communities in solano county. their mask back sites are already staffed to handle more demand here, though. the challenge is getting vaccine to those who remain unsure. >> people in a lot of the communities in need have a level of reluctance that we need to help overcome. we need to give them the right information we need to use the right community intermediaries, solano county's health officer says this is a lot more labor intensive and won't happen overnight. it's work that could go on well into the summer. we have to patient have smaller scale clinics that works for the communities that we're trying to reach science mission. it will be getting those smaller scale clinics well into the summer because, you know, some people are just going to have to wait and make sure to people they know who have been vaccinated or okay before they're willing, you know, things like that. again, the $64,000 question is will the fed's deliver as much vaccine as they promised. >> again, the governor has said they plan to go from administering 1.8 million doses a week to 2 and a half million doses. we can ultimately 3 million doses a week. dan kerman kron 4 news.
7:10 am
>> on the peninsula. state senators pushing now to expand eligibility in his district for those communities with low vaccination rates. john becker of palo alto is calling for the state to expand eligibility to those hard-hit neighborhoods to anyone 18 and older. he says the central workers in his district say that they either don't have time to go to a vaccination site or they don't know if or when they're eligible. >> so we're having convince a lot of these people know you are eligible and so we need to. that's why i'm calling for this today. we need to relax the criteria for these hard-hit communities they've been there for us. and so we need to be there for them. >> becker says that these palo alto has one of the lowest vaccination rates in the state. the state is expected to expand eligibility to everyone 16 up by april 15th regardless of where you live. in the north bay, sonoma county officials expect its
7:11 am
supply of vaccines to drastically decrease over the next 3 weeks. not good news county supervisors are asking the state for more doses up until last week. sonoma county has been vaccinating about 15,000 people per week but due to low supply, the county expects to only be able to vaccinate about 12,000 people per week. they projected that number will go even lower next week. supervisors say they have the capacity to vaccinate more than 40,000 people per week that just don't have the supply to get there. >> time now. 7.11. still ahead on the kron 4 morning news doctors are saying we should all be getting a covid shot as soon as we can. >> but there's some people who still refuse to get vaccinated. we'll tell you why and what doctors have to say about that. and after the break, president biden is stepping up his efforts to get more vaccines rolled out as we're seeing covid cases surge again. nationwide. we'll have a live report from washington.

7:33 am
of the uk variants of any state in the country. >> and what happens when all those kids go back and disperse across college campuses all over the east and south and midwest. what's going to happen with all that. but it does have the potential for for spreading. stuff around again and feeding a 4th search. >> he expects the increase in vaccinations and naturally occurring immunity will keep a potential 4th surge from being as big as previous surges and so far he says we're not seeing any signs of this in california or much of the west. but just understand. >> the travel is problematic and there are parts of the country where there is ongoing transmission. there is ongoing transmission of the variance. and i think people need to be careful and really think twice around here as we enter the spring holidays. >> that said s f o clock the busiest 2 days since the pandemic on friday and sunday with over 24,000 passengers departing each day, which is
7:34 am
still far below pre-pandemic travel levels. >> nonessential travel is still discouraged and it's recommended that anyone who leaves the state quarantine for 10 days once they come home. maureen. kelly kron 4 news and in the midst of all this concern and a rise in especially among younger people nationwide. >> we're going back to school in oakland. we are. it's different in the bay area, though we're looking at here tuesday may be contra costa could open up. yeah, you're the one bit of good news is the bay area numbers or at least holding steady and in some cases dropping kron four's will tran live for us out in oakland with more on what's happening today. with school counting on their back. got to be careful. yeah, well. got to be careful. and the school district in the parents will be careful. school will start in about 90 minutes from now, right behind me and madison park academy. >> it will not be 2019, but we are here when a few months ago i did not look like it was going to be here because the
7:35 am
city and the teachers are battling whether or not to resume school this year, but it is although there will be some precautions meaning it will not be the older kids. it would be pre k through second grade. it will be hybrid learning they will be social distance. they will be required to mask up and every day they will have to fill out a questionnaire to make sure that they are safe when their parents drop them off and no more walking your child into the classroom, especially on the first day to take that photo. they're not taking any chances. obviously with covid-19 still out there this being the first week. the teachers are not required to come back. reportedly only about 38% of them will be coming back this week and all of them will be required to come back on april 19th. we've got a chance to track down a teacher. here's what one teacher had to say about a lease returning back to a little bit normalcy. >> this is, you re entry into.
7:36 am
our familiar world in a different way and so it will people just be mindful and patient. >> patience is the word and the school district is also being patient as well. they hope to have the older kids come back, but not just yet. so it's the younger kids and we are hearing about 58% of the kids will be back in the classrooms either today some time this week we're talking about the the younger kids and i'm sure james and ari, i was thinking about this. i as a parent would like to see how it plays out before i return my kid inside the classroom and i'm sure many parents in oakland are doing the same thing school should start in about an hour from now and i will get reaction. these stories are always heartwarming to see the parents drop off their kids. yes, it's late march. but i guess for many parents, better late than never. >> back to you. yeah, i know
7:37 am
there's some excitement there. but you're right. lot of parents their students to still wanted to play that cautious card.gthank you very much. well, at 7.36 as the number of people are getting vaccinated for covid-19 grows. unfortunately. so are the number of people refusing to get the shot. in fact, a number of them say that they're unsure if it's safe. so that's part of their hesitancy. but doctors here in the bay area say you don't need to be worried that the effects of the vaccine. yes, in some cases can feel pretty bad. but it's far milder than if you actually get the virus. >> as a doctor. i don't want to force people to get the vaccination vaccination. my job is to help people make a decision. that's right for them, right for the people that they love and care about. i really don't see a lot of evidence that there's major safety concerns with this vaccine. yeah, you're likely to feel kind of bad often after you get a second dose of the 2 dose vaccines in the first one of the one dose. but she will be taking a really important step to protect the family and to protect the people you care about.
7:38 am
>> now, doctors say that upwards of 50 million people have been vaccinated and so far nobody has died from getting the vaccine. >> 7.37. and still ahead, the killing that stunned the nation and sparked a movement prosecution and defense attorneys clash over the death of george floyd. and another story that we're following this morning. the search is on for a driver in this side show that ended up hitting 4 people. >> while doing a sideshow in the bay area over the weekend. we'll take a closer look at that. and. the vaccine passports. this is something that's controversial. is it a good idea that you're be able to identify. if you've got a shot or not or is it a bad one. we'll take a look.
7:39 am
7:40 am
7:41 am
