8:04 am
here, the shooter or shooters are long gone. and despite the witnesses. so far they have not been able to release a description to the public of who they are looking for. it doesn't look good. as far as this particular victim because at one point they did put a yellow tarp on the driver's side of the sedan. so obviously that person is injured, possibly fatal. but we have yet to hear official confirmation from the walnut creek police department. fortunately this area is full of cameras included traffic cameras. so the police department, they will look at that footage see if they can get any information from that. and at the very least pass that information. description to the public at this particular time, even though they had witnesses, they still don't know a motive behind this possible fatal road rage incident back to you. thank you very much. well. >> 8. oh, time right now at our top story is now you can take off your mask when you're at work starting today, fully

8:06 am
and a polling center. you will need to wear one inside these facilities. now workplace physical distancing is long gone. but there are exceptions there is a possibility for outbreaks. and in that case when there is a cluster of positive covid cases. all employees must wear face coverings indoors and outdoors when six-feet physical distancing cannot be maintained. now, i spoke to a local business owner who says that he will still follow covid safety protocols like mask wearing social distancing and sanitizing he says that he will not be letting go of the mask any time soon. >> my opinion is though, we are a lot to not wear a mask. so had a mask just to be a you never know what's going to happen. so as bird to be careful. so i would rather wear a mask. the not wear a mask, least for another to 6 months to receive that everything is really. they can care up and the pandemic is no longer there.
