8:02 pm
of the county's total population has to be fully vaccinated or 8 weeks have to have passed covid-19 vaccine has been authorized for emergency use by federal and state authorities for the kids. you know, the 5 to 11 year olds who we expect to be vaccinated shortly. as you can see here. no bay area county is currently in the yellow or moderate tier, you have napa and solano. they are still in the red. that is high transmission rest of the bay area in the orange shore. substantial level of transmission. now despite not meeting 2 of the criteria. san francisco will be easing. the mask rules there starting next friday. that means it offices gyms fitness centers, religious gathering places. indoor college classes employee commuter vehicles. you're talking about places that do not exceed 100 people
8:03 pm
