8:00 am
we're not going to stay that way for long nap at your home ready at 60 degrees. quite a lot of temperature variation up in the north bay partly due to ehose winds talking more about what to expect this afternoon in your forecast. first of all, got to talk about traffic because we actually have had some issues on some of our bridges this morning. have we seen any you know what, we've seen some improvement, but it's still pretty bad. and we had early morning accident on the bay bridge and the richmond sandra fell bridge and look at your commute as you're heading into the city right now. still down to under 18 minutes to that fremont street exit. they have the metering lights on and the traffic and the commute just has not recovered from those early morning accident. >> the richmond sandra fell bridge looks much better we're still at 14 minutes slowly heading towards sandra fell. but again, that accident slowing things down. now. we haven't any traffic collisions are hot spots along the san mateo bridge. that's a good thing. 14 minutes and moving along there nicely, looking at one oh, one as you head towards menlo park. 37 minutes. so we're tracking those drive times for you. we'll have more on that coming up next. the darya and james,
8:01 am
back to you. >> and i'm going reflect on the feeling i have of impending 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 scare. but before the hope she said impending doom. that's the warning from the cdc director. >> about the 4th wave of coronavirus cases that we are seeing and the increases, especially among younger people. it seems to be with the latest numbers are showing this as a course more bay area counties. >> our reopening schools are welcoming students back. so the timing can be a little worrisome. so as for the data, we have the latest with the seven-day average new cases. and it looks like that's gone up 10% from the previous week. and when you look at the 7 day daily average of deaths. that's also gone up this time by 2% even though 72% of americans 65 and older have received at least one dose of vaccine. despite that millions
8:02 am
of americans, as daryn mentioned, particularly the younger ones seem to vulnerable these days. but bay area numbers continue to go down and hold there. and if that happens. >> on tear tuesday tomorrow morning. we could be tell you about a couple counties opening up alameda and napa or the latest that might join the or and that would be good news for them. proper. sara stinson live for us in alameda county with more on the story. sarah. >> yeah. it means a places like restaurants can fit more people indoors if alameda us and napa counties say do go into the orange tier mean that restaurants could fit 50% more people in here. 25% more at a total of 50%. let me just show you behind me is very unique. it's a sushi restaurant and they've got a plastic curtain around this table zoom in here. you can see that this table is all blocked by this curtain. you know, obviously to protect people from coronavirus and eating indoors.
8:03 am
>> from table to table they've got only a few of the tables available because right now in the red tier. they can only do indoor dining at 25% and restaurants like this will be able to serve more people if they do move into the orange tier. take a look at what else would be allowed if this county goes into the orange tier. and that means retail stores could actually just let as many people in as possible 100% capacity and then churches movie theaters indoor dining hall at 50%. expanding gyms indoors at 25% because there right now at 10% and wineries breweries as well. opening at 25% bars would have to remain outdoors san mateo was the first county in the orange tier followed by san francisco and santa clara counties. the orange to requires a maximum daily case rate at 3.9 per 100 people 1000 people. and at last check
8:04 am
alameda county has an adjusted case rate of 3.3 cases daily. there's positivity rate of one 0.4% so numbers are trending downward there looking good and looking like it could make alameda and napa counties move into that orange tier. but we've got to wait for the officials to tell us. >> they are going to be able to do so. expect to hear about that later today on this here, tuesday. for now i'm live in castro valley. sarah stinson back to you. >> thanks a lot, sarah at 8. '04. we also have some good news today out of the east bay where a mass vaccination site is going to be opening up at 6 flags hurricane harbor in concord. yet normally you'd have a water slide right. instead you get a covid shot. this has the county of contra. costa is going to expand to everybody 16 years and older if they want to get a shot. >> kron four's alias evans is live there with the details. hi, kelly. >> yeah. hi there. there is a with the 6 flags. hurricane harbor is no stranger to lines
8:05 am
that so they still have a line here, but it is to get your vaccination site. >> they just opened up like maybe about 10 minutes ago and are letting cars into the parking here at 6 flags because this is where basically they're going to be a vaccination site shot at now. take a look at your screen there. this is a drive-thru vaccination area. this you can't there's no walk-ups and you definitely need a that appointment to to get your shot here. can't get it without one. and the nice thing about it is that it is for free. so anyone could come up here and get it. should say anyone anyone over 50 as of today. >> for today can get one. now. yesterday we told you that the contra costa county is expected to expand their vaccination eligibility. this week for everyone. ages 16 and over. now the county has been given a solid date yet. when of they'll do that. but. it all it is all dependent on how much vaccine supply they get.
8:06 am
this is the head of the governor, governor newsom's a minute mandate which marks april 15th. as the statewide aid for vaccination eligibility for 16 years and older. but at this point we still don't have that data. did place a call. >> to the contra costa health services and left a message there. and hopefully we'll get. an answer to that. if they have a date yet said, but for now this vaccination center is open. you can see people lined up here. i'm just waiting for them to go to each of those pods over there out in the distance that for somebody will come out and give you your vaccination in that. you've got to just 5 on through and kind of exit out of here. >> as soon as we find out. when they're going to try to go from 16 over. i will tell you guys that and hopefully we'll get an answer in the next 2 hours or turn that up. thanks a lot. you only. >> well as the vaccine becomes more widely available here in
8:07 am
the bay area. there are questions as to whether counties can actually keep up with demand. we know the supplies been the problem so far. there is more of it health officials in the north bay, for they're going to be having more workers on hand to try to administer as many shots as they can and what they'll dedicate certain days to underserved communities as well. but a problem which remains is convincing everybody to get the shot. a number of them say they're still not sure. you're talking about having to interact whth people to try to help them feel comfortable with something that they're not currently comfortable with. >> that's what i want process. that is not a group open it up and come running to kind of a process and we need to be patient with that. and there large limes a vaccine is not the solution. their patience is the solution. >> and state officials are still waiting to see if the federal government will deliver the promised amount of vaccines, california, by the way, currently getting about 1.8 million doses per week. but they're expected to get
8:08 am
about 2 and a half million doses a week in the 1st half of april. >> it's 8. state senator who represents parts of the peninsula is hoping to expand vaccine eligibility in his district before mid april as kron four's. noelle bellow reports he's focused on hard-hit communities. >> they've been there for us. and so we need to be there for them. senator josh becker is calling on the state to expand eligibility and harder hit areas to people 18 and older in his district communities like east palo alto north fairoaks and belhaven are filled with essential workers who he says may not have time to go to a mass vaccination site or may not even know they're eligible or having to 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. becker says east palo alto is reporting one of the lowest vaccination rates at just
8:09 am
24.5% and even though mass clinics in palo alto have been put on pause for the next week to focus on hard-hit communities. he believes relaxing the eligibility criteria will significantly speed up the process still limited vaccine overall. but there is vaccine coming in to to get into like this, get another 1002 1000, 3,000 people. that's what we need to get to that. 33 1% threshold and then. >> from their california is expected to expand eligibility to everyone 16 and up come april 15th regardless of where you live. but becker is hoping for change now that's going to be a huge russian where these people in these communities are then getting get further and further behind noelle bellow kron 4 news havel some shots in the north bay. they want more in sonoma county. they expect supplies of the vaccine to drastically go down. >> in the next 3 weeks and supervisor asking the state. y -
8:10 am
>> for more. >> up until last week. sonoma county has been vaccinate about 15,000 people per week. but because of the low supply, the county took actually about 12,000 people this week. they project that number will go even lower next week if they don't get more vaccine. supervisors say they have the capacity to vaccinate more than 40,000 people per week. >> coming up on the kron 4 morning news in east bay church suffers thousands of dollars in damage after it was vandalized. we'll tell you what happened there. plus the search is on for the driver who hit 4 people during a side show over the weekend. and steph curry returning to the court and leading the warriors to victory will have crystal clear skies above sfo right now may be a cool morning, but the afternoon will be quite warm warmer than yesterday was. >> with highs climbing into the upper 70's to low 80's your forecast ahead. >> and we've seen delays in hot spots along the bay bridge and the richmond sandra fell bridge. we're still tracking a delay due to those early morning traffic collisions

8:15 am
offshore wind keeping fog and marine layer pushed away from the coastline. this northerly wind actually reversing yesterday's onshore breeze, which kept us a bit cooler comparatively also kept conditions a bit cloudy, at least to start your morning yesterday. today it's just the opposite. no fog, no cloud cover just a generous wind from the north gusting as high as 2030, and even 40 miles per hour under a mountain tops in the north bay. that's we do have wind advisories in effect for a couple more hours. expiring at 10:00am, for all solano county, upper elevations of the north bay as well as east bay and then right up and down the coastline and san mateo county. again, we do look at these expiring at 10:00am. it's still going to be breezy after that. not quite as windy, though, as we have been this morning, skies will remain clear, not just today but into tomorrow and into thursday to is a very dry and warm way to be ending march tomorrow. the last day of the month and thursday being the first day of april. today's daytime highs easily 10 to 15 degrees above our seasonal averages highs into the upper

8:25 am
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. >> doctors say upwards of 50 million people have been vaccinated and so far no one died from the vaccine. >> there's a new cdc study that shows the real world effectiveness of both the pfizer and moderna vaccine. the agency looked at 4,000 frontline health care workers over the winter and they found after just one shot. i the vaccine the risk of infection was reduced by 80% and then that number goes to 90%. once you get the second dose. >> we'll take a break here. a t 25. still ahead, the cdc warning about this 4th wave of covid cases. are we reopening too early coming up, we're going to talk with an infectious disease expert from u c berkeley.

8:29 am
atypical way. normally about 15 degrees cooler than we are about to be this afternoon. skies already nice and clear out there at the embarcadero and you're look for mount tam is also showing some beautiful in crystal clear skies right now. now conditions out there will be breezy at times. this is an offshore wind, though. so it's keeping fog pushed away from the coastline is one of the reasons why we don't have any fog in any of our views this morning. so smooth sailing in that way. wind advisories for upper elevations of both the north and east bay and right along the coastline to we have a northerly wind that is actually quite breezy up in the north bay mountains gusting as high as 45 miles per hour for some of our upper elevations further north skies crystal clear. another dry week ahead of us before chances of rainfall return next week. and just as we've been talking about all morning expected. temperatures are already on the rise dublin at 53 berkeley. 55. now that you're sitting at 60 degrees right now talking the 70's and low 80's that we have for the afternoon. still to come,
8:30 am
reyna john, thank you are still recovering from those early morning hot spots. those accidents. >> along the bay bridge. we're down to about 12 minutes to the fremont street excess. you were up to 14. so it kind of keeps fluctuating. also the richmond sandra fell bridge down to 13. we had an early morning traffic collision near the conditions are slowly trying to improve just a little bit. the san mateo bridge with that. no collisions here. 13 minutes as you're driving across towards the peninsula. but we're still after an accident along the air to 42 heading in that direction. just 22 minutes. we'll have more on that coming up next. but for now, daryn, back to you. thanks a lot. rate 08:30am. there's a lot of fear about a 4th covid surge because cases are on the rise around the country, especially among younger people. yeah. the >> are rising nationally as we're low opening locally more and more and more kids are coming back to the classroom to for in person learning which seems dangerous or yeah, but let's find out more about this. joining us now to talk about this is u c berkeley
8:31 am
infectious disease expert doctor john swartzberg. doctor forsberg, thank you so much for joining us once again. welcome. good morning. good morning. is it wise to reopen schools. i know the bay area seems to be in a different boat. >> the nationwide. but could that be like our boat soon. do we need to be careful. >> we absolutely need to be careful. we have to learn for previous mistakes that we've made that is going to open up too soon. and we want to put it another church and it looks like that's the direction we're getting right fortunately the bay area consistent throughout this pandemic is there much better than the rest of the country. but we can't give up on that going forward. >> is this because we're seeing states that had previously opened up a more broadly than we did starting to see these upticks in numbers. and we're seeing that as a htrbinger of what may come to california. >> we're seeing as a harbinger of things to we're also see look at look at western europe union. they're they're locking down with the exception of britain. is having terrible
8:32 am
now the country in the world in terms of the number of cases per day. so what's happening around the rest of the world ultimately always comes here and we are seeing it here and seen in west 2 weeks to a rise of about 15% in the number of patients. so we have this roughly 9 weeks of a wonderful decline of cases here in the united states and other countries in a plot to note in the ocean rise or are we seeing. >> the result of the fact that we're only let an older folks get vaccinated. so we're all getting ourselves covered. the kids are running around out there. we didn't bother to give them the vaccine. they still can't get it. >> the major driver for this pandemic in terms of the number of cases where people roughly between their 20's 30's and 40's. receiving seen that consistently. and that's still a population of the united states as we have the same percentage of people that
8:33 am
actually older groups. so i don't blame this on the kids right now. latest on the 20's 30's 40's well that they can get vaccinated either. i mean, you don't forget, we were >> this first system. >> and i think there's only like one other country. one country didn't do it that way. they said we're going vaccinate the young people who are out and about working the 30's 40's 50's. we went about it the other way. so. i wonder if that was a mistake. i mean, like you said, they're the most active. so don't we need to get them vaccinated. >> we need to get everybody vaccinated. you're absolutely you know, the strategy of picking older people first was that that's where roughly 80% of the %ccurred. so the goal was in is to prevent. yes. yes, we both will that population. it's the goal is to this pandemic and stop it fairly quickly, then the goal would be to vaccinate younger people. you have so many more
8:34 am
deaths. so, you know, there's no easy way out of this in terms of the solution, the major solution or at least to get this everybody's arms quickly as possible. >> is also possible that we're seeing the effects of all the travel that we saw during spring break or has not enough time gone by yet for those numbers to come in. >> in the past. we've seen their discretion indiscretions like spring break it takes to sing about a to see an uptick in cases. you know what happened in florida. example, which was just in the bomb. a nation. the people leasth learned fly back to their homes all around the united states seeing the virus and most will see an uptick probably next week or the week after that but it's not going to be as dramatic florida because a lot of people are visiting for. >> what is so creepy. the way you use that word seating. you know what mean. invisibly seeding the and the new variant, right, which is more
8:35 am
contagious. >> and then you've got a still struggling with the supply situation. so how we said the bexar for that because we're all supposed to be opening up to the younger people write 16 overall. we have enough. >> i think so. you know, it you have to be a line that the commitments by the pharmaceutical companies. our suspicion really. so the pipeline we sent another vaccine. we seems to go wrong. there could be a production problem. for example. seniors across that things will go as and i think there's a good chance they will. >> how come they're such a drastic difference between people get the shot and like i was fine, right. a headache and then. i talked to a guy prefer it was like a distance runner 50 years old or less and he today's study was going die. these fine now and he says, oh, i would take that any day over covid right. but he definitely like was out bad.
8:36 am
>> yeah. you know, it's impossible predict is going to have reaction. we have some data suggest suggest respond that. women more and i are seeing this, example. older people tend to get less of a reaction you know, the people that you after my second i lousy the in it's not. >> and about to been worse in the older group. so there's really no way to get one thing that a lot questions about that is a lot of people don't get much reaction at all. some people really don't get any reaction. they're worried that they're getting response. we know that they do get immune response that she just consider themselves working. you have a list not forget. >> the vaccine had killed anybody so far and covid sure hass so half a million now that's well put. that's the bottom line is
8:37 am
>> and then one quick before we go, i'm just curious as an infectious disease expert. i see this thing on the on the global perspective and you have countries that are struggling of numbers that are going up here and there. the vaccine is getting out. but i guess is it really it's a race against time, isn't it. because we want to get to herd immunity before there's a very and out there that could be resistant to this vaccine that we spent so much time developing. >> absolutely. we want to get as many people vaccinated as possible. so we state so people don't get real. 6 people don't get long covid. but we also need to get to this. community immunity. some people call unity quickly as possible so we don't generate new variance. every jackson. person is no longer a variance act and that's what we've got to get to. >> ok. thanks a lot. we appreciate you joining us this morning. and we'll be right

8:41 am
have no leads again, if you think you have any information that could help them out mccall. >> 8.40, and we have a new development in those side shows that we showed yesterday that happened in san francisco over the weekend to big sideshows. turns out. >> 4 people were hit and james were watching this video yesterday 13th and fulsome under the one o one overpass. we were talking about that cars doing donuts. look how close the crowd was. and we said all it's so dangerous. it's amazing. no way to hurt love for people got hurt. they're going to be okay. but now they're looking for the driver of that car who sped off. there was another side show. it 24th and mission. so they are looking for the driver of the car that took off and the 4 people who were hit looks like they will recover. >> well, today a warmer one than yesterday. was daytime highs rise into the upper 70's's for open in san jose. some parts of the north bay and the inland east bay rising into the low 80's today. that's well above average for this time of year, talking even

8:44 am
8:45 am
