friday. yeah. it is a sunny day around the bay. but depending on where you are can also be pretty hazy. to. yeah, we've been seeing that somewhere and not foggy. we said hazy, which means kind of moderate air quality yeah. air quality not doing so great again, we are going to be seeing another hazy horizon come the afternoon and that's something you're already seeing, especially across our bayshore cities this morning, a pretty notable from your san jose cam as well. the blue skies up above. and then that line a haze very evident out there. when you're looking right at the horizon. otherwise it is beautiful in crystal clear of of san jose right now. we do have another layer of tooley fog that draping the central valley in our inland valleys here in the bay area. so much so that solano county is back under a dense fog advisory. and we also do have an impact of low visibility in areas like conquered highway for portions of 6 ad benicia bridge carquinez bridge as well as on up into solano county. so be mindful of this couple pockets of fog right along the bay
shore too. our current temperatures anywhere from the 30's in dublin in the north bay to the upper 50's out and we're starting things out under some sunshine. so quite a wide range of numbers. but we are all jacket where the come the afternoon like yesterday, you may be able to get away with just the shorts and t-shirt. i know i did. for a bit. i'll be talking the rest of your forecast still to come, rain thank you, john it as well. all right. we have issues to tell you about in the south bay, if you're traveling northbound, 2.80, just north of matt avenue. we've got an accident there. >> but another one southbound, 6.80, south of east capitol expressway. so we are seeing delays also has long one. oh, one as you're traveling as well. there heading into the city from the east bay little under 90 minutes. we had a traffic accident right near the tolls in the last hour. traffic has been residual the slow there because of traffic hazards. also, it's pretty delayed along fine. 1880, as you're traveling along here heading across towards the peninsula now into double digits. a little under 25 minutes. so we're seeing delays along one o one that's causing that back up and about
15 minutes as you're traveling out of richmond across towards sandra fell darya james, back to you. thank you. ray 81 and our top story is the omicron variant of covid, which has now been detected in the bay area. yeah. first in the country. >> found in san francisco. but again, first detected, yes, not to say there are other cases out there, but detected here. we've got team coverage on all of this. will tran is out at sfo because there are new restrictions expected today from the white house about travel through international airport. but first we want to go to camila barco in the newsroom. for more on what we know about this case in san francisco camilla. >> morning, guys. yeah. the first person who has been infected with the omicron variant in the country is a san francisco man. now this morning he has some mild symptoms and is self isolating. but if you look at your screen, we're giving you a timeline of how the health department was able to come come across this case. now 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. now that sample was then brought to a ucsf lab for rapid sequencing and yesterday the cdc confirmed the sample is omicron now on the kron is a new coronavirus variant. it was first detected in south africa. scientists say it is a virus that spreads quickly. city officials say the man who was infected with the omicron variant did the right thing and got tested quickly city health officials say that they are confident they have taken the 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.
>> now the man is fully vaccinated. experts say the vaccine likely saved him from suffering a far worse illness. health officials are conducting contact tracing so far. none of the man's contacts have tested positive 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 by governor gavin newsome. we'll hear from him in the next half hour. for now, back to you guys. >> all right. thank you very much. camila. let's talk more about what's going on the bay area at large. all of the counties in trying to check for omicron labs are working on testing for the variant as it is definitely here. just a matter of detecting where is so far, though, none of the cases examined have been of omicron health officials, for example, a sonoma county say that the fact that we are vaccinated and get booster shots. that's the best way to protect.
>> 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. but on the run. >> and as for other counties, health officers say they are all of them in the county say they're doubling up on their efforts to examine for positive cases and what variant they are. >> and this is interesting too, is just a wait and see. right now they're not taking any additional steps counties that we've checked. >> and changing their covid restrictions in any way. at this point. >> well, there will be some changes coming to airports. thanks to president biden's going to be laying out his plan today to fight the omicron variant this winter as the holiday travel season really heating up was for all
sfo and all their airports an and all airports nationwide when it comes to international travelers. travelers. will tran is live at sfo with more on what they're doing. i will. >> once they announced this that it will kick in as early as next week and they don't even care about your vaccination status. so if you're coming into the u.s. set of 3 days out from your flight to test negative for covid-19. now it's going to be one day 24 hours to make sure that you're negative for covid-19 or else you are not going to board that plane to head into the united states. also the mask mandate for domestic flights and public transportation. he was going to let that expire next month. but because of the new variant and trying to slow it down right now. it's already in 23 countries across the globe in order to slow it down. according to president biden and his administration. he wants to put the mask mandate in effect all the way through march 18th no lockdown, no shut down. schools will still
be able to operate. but of course it's a very fluid situation. here's president biden talking about the latest >> we're learning more every single day and we'll fight this variant was science and speed, not chaos and confusion. >> booster booster booster, meaning he's going to boost his booster shots to try to get it to more americans. he's also going to offer more free home testing kits and he's going to urge employers that get your employees vaccinated or at least to the weekly tests. so lots going on and it appears as usual. this won't come as a surprise to many people. governor gavin newsome seems to be very much lockstep with president biden as far as keeping the schools open and the economy open all of this. why are they doing this? all of this is to buy time for the health organization. world health organization and for american doctors to research the latest variant. how deadly
is it? how easily spreadable it is. what's going to happen with. so this is the playbook. >> that we talked about years ago. james and area that president obama had in place when then vice president or not. president biden. but he was vice president at the time. so he's looking at that play. but right now. >> back to you. all right. thank you. will. and you know, it all comes down to like. we talked about the testing to find out is it the new variant and sfl also is one of 4 major airports that has special testing as part of the cdc program where it's voluntarily involuntary. but what they do is they focus on international travelers now, at first they were primarily looking at travelers from india because the delta variant. but now as we know, this variant started in south africa. >> 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. >> well, the testing is voluntary, as daryn mentioned, could be done through a test there at the airport or passengers can actually take a testing kit home with them. the spokesperson says that there's been no modification right now to air travel at sfo following the announcement of the new omicron variant. but that could change later today when president biden again issues some restrictions to international travelers. health officials in san mateo say that demand for booster shots is. so high right now that you now have to make an appointment. if you want to get the shot at one of the county's vaccine clinics. they just can't take walk-ups anymore. so need to make an appointment for the san mateo event center on saratoga drive. they say boosters are also, though, available at community clinics health care providers and pharmacies. if that's more convenient for you and a lot of them don't require unemployment right now. so that might be the fastest way to get one. >> waiting and waiting to hear from the a's. we're not hearing from the a's, but we are seeing some reports and it doesn't look good for a's fans in terms of them staying in oakland. according to a cnbc,
the a's are interested in developing a site for a stadium at the tropicana hotel on the strip in vegas. and there's some other plans that have been floated that i've seen reports and other locations. they're still, according to this report, figuring out how they pay for it. they have to bid on the land. so it's not that far along. and we've tried to get information from the a's. everybody has. but so far they're not saying anything more. all we know is as we've known for a long time. the a's owner has made it clear that they're looking. the mlb has said it's ok that they look elsewhere. they've made already several trips to vegas. so this wouldn't be a surprise, but it would be really sad. 8.10, right now. and we have some breaking overnight baseball news 2 major league baseball has issued a lockout. the previous deal between the owners and players union expired overnight and the 2 sides have reached a new deal so now they're just it's a called a brick wall, a lockout. what is that means players and teams
cannot have any official communication or communication in any way really. and that includes no free agent deals, no trades, nothing is going on. in fact, they can't even put up the pictures of the players. so, yes, the giants still have a roster. but this is a look at the website. you see all the pictures are gone. this is another technicality. what a lockout means. it doesn't mean any games are canceled yet because that would be for next season and they're not that far along is just day by day. and what we do is we see how long the lockout stay tuned. all right. 11 the time. >> still ahead on the kron 00:00am morning news the city of walnut creek is taking some new step to try to stop retail theft will explain what they have in mind. >> after the break, open city officials are expected to announce today a plan to try and help bolster the ranks at opd. they're understaffed right now and also the spy change struggles at our ports. they continue as we're getting near and dear christmas. but the president says help is on the way. we'll have more his remarks coming up.
>> and lots of sunshine out there. but it is some hazy sunshine at sfo. there's some fog further inland too, later on today. it's pretty much back to where we were yesterday. some unseasonably warm highs climbing well into the 70's for a lot of the bay. i've got the details of your forecast and staying on top of your traffic this thursday morning. we've had a busy one. morning. we've had a busy one. >> so ♪ ♪ ♪ morning. we've had a busy one. >> so ♪ ♪ ♪ with chase security features, guidance and convenience,

lightest scarf. you've got the light puffy as daria like, oh, yes, a little boy just to get in the spirit. yeah. >> but yeah, beautiful day yesterday, beautiful day today and there's so much going on. we've got our christmas tree up in my place yesterday pictures senate. finally, send in your pictures. send in pour pictures. yes, i would definitely do that. yeah, i got my presence rep to so head of the care that these guys o of the yeah. we're looking at another nice one getting the tree lit up their golden gate park. i know there's a lot of other stuff going on, too. so good weather to get out there today and enjoy it. lots of sunshine above san francisco right now. we do have dry skies yet again, no surprise there. but there is some dense fog towards our inland valleys. solano county back to that dense fog advisory and some haze right on the horizon, especially right along the bay high pressure is created this inversion that's making foggy conditions inland and that haze that we have here in the bay area. here's a bit of good news for you. we are seeing this high-pressure breaking now, this doesn't
mean we're not going to stay as warm for his long to do and enjoy another warm one today, similar field yesterday. but the better news is that we won't see as hazy of conditions come the weekend and then especially next week and we do have a window opening for the possibility of a pattern change that could eventually bring rainfall towards the very end of next week. in the beginning of the following week after that. so we've still got to wait a bit for it. we're staying dry this week. we're staying dry this weekend albeit a couple left misty spots of the coast possible on saturday. this trend continues for a few more days and like i mentioned enjoy it while it lasts some 60's in sf possibility of some low 70's mixed in there like in half moon, bay right at 70 degrees and then pretty solid 70's elsewhere like in san carlos in woodside at 73 south bay temp similar to yesterday's record breaking conditions san jose at 74 today freeman through hayward each at 72 oakland at 69 walnut creek at 70 a cool 66 in antioch welfare field in pittsburgh at 67 in petaluma

and get to and stay undetectable can no longer transmit hiv through sex. don't take dovato if you're allergic to its ingredients or if you take dofetilide. taking dovato with dofetilide can cause serious or life-threatening side effects. hepatitis b can become harder to treat while on dovato. don't stop dovato without talking to your doctor, as your hepatitis b may worsen or become life-threatening. serious or life-threatening side effects can occur, including allergic reactions, lactic acid buildup, and liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, or if you are, may be, or plan to be pregnant. dovato may harm your unborn baby. use effective birth control while on dovato. do not breastfeed while taking dovato. most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, trouble sleeping, tiredness, and anxiety. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. ask your doctor about dovato-i did.

was all predicted. he is expecting more cases of the omnicom variant to be detected in california and state health leaders have been preparing for this moment. newsom says that they were able to identify the case because of the state's testing capabilities, their main message to the public is not to panic, but they also asked people to keep their guard up because of their vaccination efforts newsome has no plans to shut down the economy or schools despite the state's and nation's first omicron case. >> none of us want to see that happen. i certainly don't want to see that happen. and i see no indication at this moment whatsoever that that's in our immediate future. as long as we continue our nation, the efforts we are proud to be able to identify in this state because of those efforts to be well prepared. >> around covid the lessons we learned over the past 20 plus months. >> to be ready on all fronts in california. demonstrates that today. >> now there's little
information known about the new omicron variant. however, health officials have declared as a variant of concern. but state officials here in california are working to get more information about the omicron variant and they are also boosting covid testing at airports across california. daria, thanks. back to you. >> all right. thank you very much. camila 8.35. is the time and let's take it to the east bay right now where, yeah, city council. this is a whole different story that we've really been following a lot, which is all the smash and grab robbery so in walnut creek, the city council as a whole new plan. they're going to add a new 5 person police team to patrol the downtown this move is in response. of course, those as we've seen video of that. the north storms at broadway plaza was hit by like up to 90 people. 90 very scary. yeah, they'll put there was a dip stop the cars in the middle of road and they ran an. so they're here. look at the meeting where they decided what they're going to do. in the case of north and they got away with about a $125,000. but here's some of the plan. targeting people is
agree jus and particularly on acceptable. we need to arrest. >> charge and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. >> in addition to extra staffing because remember, we told you about that, sir. the 5 person downtown team, they're going to have more overtime for officers and they're also going to have more money 2 by security cameras and 2 by a you heard the council. people talking about arrests will 3 people have been arrested so far that northam's robbery. but the police chief says he does expect more arrests to come in the coming days. >> because of all of the retail says the salvation army is seeing a couple of side effects. one is the holiday don't donations are down this season in fact, when they look at the branch in contra, costa county. they say they're about $30,000 short of what they had this time last year. and so not only is affecting what we're seeing in the red kettles. but they say it's
