the lead barely making it even though our chances of rainfall are definitely a lot lighter than what we had last week. and that's probably actually a good thing saturday is chance of rain is and maybe a couple of sprinkles possible sunday are other. monday's is looking a lot better and then sunday for halloween. nice and dry. good weather for all the trick or treating that you want to be doing your view outside this morning starting to brighten up just a little bit. you're berkeley hills. cam is nice and clear. that's not to say the rest of the bay area's fairing. so well, though, we have seen visibility improving in the south bay. but there are still pockets of fog to be noted in the south bay as well as hugging san pablo bay right across the north bay. so just be mindful that we are at saturation point this morning is first humidity goes there's a lot of do. there's a lot of missed having formed for parts of the region that does make for some wet conditions. some slick roadways might have to run the windshield wiper a time or 2 current temperatures are in the 50's for most of us oakland at 55 alameda. 58 dublin dublin's at 50 degrees pacifica at a cool 60 degrees.
7:01 am
our warmest spot in the bay right now. rain a thank you, donald. it's good out there. all right. well, we do have some issues out on our roadways like the bay bridge. >> a disabled vehicle near that fremont street exit in the city. so just east of that. so we start to see drive times go up by at least 24 minutes. if you're traveling there, let's head over get a look at what's happening along 80 san pablo 80 westbound at el portal drive. you've got an accident there. so i would say san pablo avenue that runs just adjacent to that headed across towards the peninsula. little under 17 to no hazards. but an uptick in traffic and out here pleasanton as you're traveling along southbound south of castle would drive. you got an accident. so you might want to hop on 84 or 5.80, to get around that. all right. james, back to you. thanks, lauren. a. >> so happy right now. we have thousands of hotel employees across the country protesting today over low pay and increased workloads during the pandemic. and that right now the demonstration is happening in the east bay kron four's will tran is there in berkeley. good morning. well.
7:02 am
>> they are into it about an hour or so. and you can see now it's grown at the 6 o'clock. it was probably about 70 people. now we're probably 15200 as they are walking back and forth, their place of employment. the doubletree hilton is right in front of you with all the lights. obviously they're sending a message to their employer that they're looking for better working conditions. now they say that, yes, understand that the pandemic did hurt the company. the hotel's financially, but they claim they recovered since then. but they're still using the pandemic as an excuse. >> cut staff that increases the workload for those who still have jobs and not only that, they're fearful that you know, new employees might have to pay even more for health care. so that's why they're out here protesting, not just here teens and area, but this is happening across the country and even in canada all
7:03 am
together, about 10,000 of them. doing it at the same time, here's tom diaz, one of the workers here who took time to step out of the protest me about your work conditions. why was it so important for you to be here and not at work. >> well, because when you have your work overload, it and we haven't had a for wages. and i see throughout their employees that there's there are short staffed and they're not even. having to give us any but anyhow for the live setting wages, you know, to be bay area for wages. so i mean, at the does you know, people are stressed and everything like that. but nothing has been done by management or the corporation. >> you seen an increase in workload. there's no doubt about it. ever since about on that note, i don't know about >> we're all thbt's no help to the goes on to wait, bring us up like every other hotel.
7:04 am
just give us our we haven't had a contract for what a >> we have not heard from the hotel. we hope to hear from the hotel's was no response but face it. james and darya whenever you're doing this. you're sending a message to your employer, but also hoping to hurt them financially because look at this. this is part of the hotel and there are people inside. so maybe it will. deter them from booking a as this continues. but we'll see how this goes out. i can tell you there will be a march this afternoon at 4 o'clock in san francisco. there can be counted. it will consist of many of these workers as well as they marched through downtown san francisco back to it. >> all right. thanks a lot. we'll also making headlines this morning. your commute next week could take longer than usual if you ride muni. yep. that's because they're going to have to suspend some services that they don't have enough workers. >> to work for because of the vaccine mandate. if you didn't get the employee, you know,
7:05 am
sitting police needed to get the shot or else or else yeah. the kron 4. sarah stinson is live in san francisco with the fallout, how it'll affect riders. hi, sara. >> that last check sfmta said that there's about nearly 300 muni operators that did not provide proof of vaccination. and so they had to kind of pivot and decide what to suspend in that is short line rides until they can get more employees vaccinated because starting on monday. you don't have full vaccination. you cannot go to work. take a look at your screens. you can see right off the bat. what we're talking about in terms of affected rides. and that includes one california short 14. our mission rapid short weekends only 30 stockton short in 49 van. a short that's on weekdays. only short service refers to buses that run on a segment of a longer muni route to help improve frequency the long routes on these lines will continue to operate as if mta says it was
7:06 am
a hard decision on what to suspend. but the transit agency is hoping that short line is the best thing to cuts of the least number of riders are affected. the transit agency had to do this because of that vaccine mandate requiring all us employees to show proof of full vaccination by november first or they're put on leave. and even worse terminated. sfmta is working with operators to address their vaccination status and hoping that they'll be able to return to work as soon as possible and the transit agency says there will be no cancellation. any new routes in response to this staffing challenge. they're actually training new operators to get more of them out there. and so they can get that short line route back up and running there's no estimate of will how long it's going to be for the short lines to say suspended. so they're just doing the best they can to have those conversations with to get them vaccinated. >> see what happens. maybe they'll have to be terminated reached out to sfmta to get
7:07 am
update on how many employees as of today are not fully vaccinated. so stay tuned for that for now, reporting live in san francisco. sarah stinson kron 4 news. all right. thanks a lot, sarah. >> time now 7, '06. >> let's head to the east bay now where another bay area in and out burgers facing fines and closing its indoor dining after violating contra costa counties. >> vaccine mandate in and out basically saying that they don't want to be the vaccine police. there's a handful of protesters that showed up at one in san ramon last night we heard from a woman who is supporting the demonstration at in and out. >> it's garbage. why are we asking high schoolers. a lot of these kids are in high school. >> 1920. why did they have to be the passport police. it's not the company's job. are they going to is the government going to provide. >> a salary for someone to only check passports. it's it's ludicrous.
7:08 am
>> in a statement to kron 4 in and out says it refuses to be quote, vaccination police and they call the local health mandate invasive and unreasonable. >> to the north bay now where the latest city council has extended the city's mask mandate indefinitely at this point. the mandate requires everybody over the age of 4 to wear a mask while inside the indoor settings. the city's decision goes against solano county, which is we know has declined to implement any sort of mask mandate county wide. but the city council says that their mandate will stay in effect until there's some sort of change in the county's covid transmission rates. meanwhile, indoor mask mandates in schools will likely be around least through next year. that's according to state health officials, but that could change as more students get vaccinated against covid. so we'll see where the numbers go. california health and human services secretary doctor mark galli didn't provide any official criteria for when mask mandates might be lifted. he also says it will take some time to ensure that students have a chance to get
7:09 am
vaccinated against covid on tuesday as we know, an fda panel approved the pfizer vaccine for children between the ages of 5.11 that will need to be an emergency use authorization. and at this point that looks like it will happen. maybe some time next week. >> santa clara county is outlining its plan to get covid vaccines into the arms of little kids between the ages of 5.11 as early as next week. they're going to do it at the county fairgrounds, which is the same place they give the adult covid shots now. officials are putting up privacy screens, though. so the kids won't get freaked out or scared seeing the other kids get their shots promise doesn't hurt. especially as a mom of 2 kids already. i know that the fear that they go through when they're getting vaccines. >> the privacy screens are going to hopefully minimize that visual anxiety for them. >> and remember kids. it has a smaller needles smaller needle for you and a fraction of the dose as well to kids amount of
7:10 am
dose. 55,000 children doses are expected to arrive in santa clara county next week and there are 166,000 kids between the ages of 5.11 who live in the county. so in addition to the fairgrounds getting ready. they're going to get shots. they think it community clinics private doctors offices, pharmacies and some schools. and governor newsome. >> see he showing you. you can do it. i did. this is him getting a booster shot at a local health clinic in oakland. he was visiting there and thought, okay, i'm here. there you go. look, it's give a lift and he now he got the johnson and johnson for his first shot which means this was his second because the booster doses, the second for them and you can mix and match got the moderna because it was there and all of the health officials. and you know, the fda cdc said that's fine, mix and match whatever is most convenient for you. >> another big story that we're following this morning. police are investigating now possible shooting that shut down interstate 5.80, in oakland last night. all lanes are open this morning. so it's not affecting the morning commute, but police on scene
