under 12 minutes to make it into the city to that fremont street exit. also no delays along 5, 1880, as you're traveling heading across towards the peninsula a little under 14 minutes. there and we'll leave you with a look at the richmond center fell bridge a little under 8 minutes traveling across towards sandra fell, tara james, back to you. thank you, ray. our top story is almost kron. the new covid variant, which has been detected for the first time in the nation officially here in the bay area. it has. that's where the first case was spotted in san francisco. and this morning we have team coverage. >> we'll trend is standing by out of sfo because we have new restrictions that are expected to go into place today from the biden administration explore that in more detail. but first we want to go to camila barco live in the newsroom with more on what we know about this case in san francisco camilla. >> good morning, guys. yeah. the first person who has been infected with the omicron variant in the country is a san francisco man. now he has some mild symptoms right now and the self isolating. but if you take a look at your screen. we're giving you a
timeline of how the health department was able to come across this case. officials say the man flew into sfo on november 22nd after a trip to south africa. 6 days later he developed covid symptoms and got tested on monday. his results came back positive and that sample was then brought to a ucsf lab for rapid sequencing and yesterday the cdc confirmed that sample is an omicron. is on the kron now on the kron is a new coronavirus variant that was first detected in south africa. scientists say it is a virus that spreads quickly. now the first on the kron patients that san francisco man. i spoke about is self-isolating. like i said and city officials say the man to the right thing and got tested quickly. they are confident the city has taken preventative measures to handle covid and its variants. >> san francisco is relatively well positioned to respond to variance our vaccine may is high. more boosters are going to arms every day. 5 to 11
year-olds are getting vaccinated. the rapid uptake. our masking and vaccine requirements are among some of the most stringent in the country. >> experts say the vaccine likely saved the man from suffering a far worse illness. health officials are conducting contact tracing. but so far none of the man's contacts have tested positive now. san francisco's public health director doctor grant colfax says the city's vaccination rate is high. it's currently at 81%. and he says because of this there will be no new restrictions coming to san francisco. and that message has been echoed. but governor gavin newsome. we'll hear from him in the next half hour. for now, back to you guys. ok, we'll look forward to that. thank you. camila. >> and continuing to explore what's going on with omicron in bay area. >> labs. they are working to test for the variance and see if and when and how it's spreading. so far. none of the cases examine has detected
this variant that san francisco the first want health officials in sonoma county say that the vaccine and the boosters are the best way that we can protect ourselves. >> certainly have seen increased demand for boosters, which is great because we do want to ensure that people do get their boosters data does seem to show that the boosters not only increase and ensure that that anybody level is consistent. but it was just seems to also activate different arms of the immune system which is helpful in contracting any variant. we've seen that with delta and presumably that would be the case with on the run. >> and other county health officers say they too, are making double the effort now to examine any positive covid cases and identify the strain. so far. counties say they're not taking any additional steps are precautions or anything like that. not changing current covid restrictions based on this new variant. so that's locally on the national front. however,
president biden is expected to lay out his plans to fight the omicron variant. >> as we get deeper into the winter months. you can see we have sfo here because it involves travel. let's go to kron. four's will tran was at the airport to talk more about the changes we're going to see will. >> what they're going to do is he's going to tighten his grip on international travelers right now that you have 3 days before your flight to test negative. what he's going to do is he's going to shrink that down from 3 days down to one day for international travel into the united states that will go into effect next week. also, what you need to know is this will not result in a school shut down or economy shut down. what they want to do is just by the researchers time to slow this down so they can attack covid-19 and any new variants like the crime moving forward. so they can see if it spreads easier than the other variants. if it's. deadlier
how it affects your body. so this is all about buying time. president biden also plans to extend the mask mandate right now before what he plans to issue a little bit later today. the mask mandate was supposed to expire in january. for domestic flights buses trains. now that will go on until march 18th that is just a few of the things he plans to do to attack this latest. gary. >> we're learning more every single day and we'll fight this variant was science and speed, not chaos and confusion. >> also what he plans to do is to step up efforts for booster shots for all americans right now about 60% of americans are fully vaccinated. he does not plan to shut down the schools and he's pretty much lock step with governor gavin newsome for california as well. of course, everything is fluid. so if it gets worse, things could change. but the way things are right now. it looks
like the new restrictions for international travelers even though it's going to be announced today will not take effect until next week. back to you. all right. thanks a lot. we'll. >> well, as is also one of 4 major airports expanding testing as part of a cdc program airport spokesperson doug yakel says the voluntary testing was focused primarily on travelers from india because the delta variant was the big concern at that point. but of course, now, that's all changed. >> in response to the omicron variant the cdc expanded the scope of the pilot test program at to now include travelers arriving from south africa, germany, france and the uk really the countries where this omicron variant is known to be spreading. >> the testing is voluntary right now and it can be done through a test at the airport or passengers can take a home kit with them. yakel says that there's been no modification made to air travel at sfo following the announcement of the new omicron variant. but again, they'll keep assessing.
that is time and that's what i want. i want more of those at home kits and we'll mention that. that's another thing. the president's going to talk about is making that announcement free to everybody right. because before the holidays, nobody talked about. i bought them at walgreens. >> but would be great to have him free the great dumfries salute lee. all right. other health officials in san mateo county, by the way, say that the demand for booster shots is on the rise. in fact, so much so. >> that, you know, have to make an appointment. if you want to get a shot at one of the county's vaccine clinics they used to allow walk-ups in there. but now they just don't the the space available anymore. so you have to make an appointment if you want to go to the event center on saratoga drive. officials say booster shots, though, are also available at community clinics, health care providers. you can find them at your local pharmacy, many of which by the way, don't require an appointment. so if you need a walk-up spur of the moment. >> 6. '08 right now and bad news for a's fans. >> it really does look like the team going to vegas. i want to get ahead of myself. i know you don't either. but
