3:07 pm
far, none of the cases examined have detected this variant health officials in sonoma county say the vaccine and the booster shots are the best way to protect yourself. >> 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 counteracting any variant. we've seen that with delta and presumably that would be the case with on the run. >> so other county health officers are saying they're doubling up their efforts not to examine positive cases so far. current county say they are not taking any additional steps are making any changes to the current covid restrictions. but health officials in san mateo county say that demand for booster shots is on the rise that demand is so high. we'll have

3:10 pm
then when that the al mena. the trial continued and he eventually had a plea deal as well. and no more jail time. that was devastating and. that's one reason why we're so pleased that we were able to get them some justice and the civil case where the criminal justice system had failed. >> speaking about that in a civil lawsuit the family has reached a multimillion dollar settlement against the city of oakland pg e and the owners of the warehouse. all manner and his plea bargain received a 12 year sentence. but backed sliced by the judge to home detention and probation. some people actually justine today are going to that warehouse to honor the victims of going to have more on this coming up on kron 4 news at 5 as well as on our streaming app service. kronon you can download that for free in your app store. back to you. was it feels like those just yesterday. you know. all right. let's talk

>> major league baseball's at a standstill as of last night. this is the mlb's first work stoppage since the 9495 players strike kron 4 sports reporter kate rooney is joining us here now to explain, especially to us. we're not so like inside inside baseball what is this neat? well, it's a complicated issue no matter how deep inside you are, justine. but here's where we stand. it's been more than 30 years since a stalemate like this a lockout at 09:00pm pacific last night. baseball's collective bargaining agreement expired. >> and since the league and the players union were unable to come to new terms before that time, the league is officially in one of these lockout. so what does that mean? a lockout is essentially the opposite of a strike in which the employer in this case, major league baseball stops. the employees, the players from working. so that means no roster transactions, no contract negotiations. no communications between team officials and players. this
3:47 pm
walkout has been quite a long time in coming the owners and the players union have been trading proposals for a new cba for the last year. but after 3 days of accelerated bargaining this week. they could not reach an agreement. there have been a flurry of free agent signings leading up to the expected work stoppage and yesterday giants president farhan zaidi was asked about how the team is affected. he didn't want to say too much. >> they're kind of communications and and transactional. limitations. and there's been a lot kind of redundant out publicly said i don't want to kind of go into full details on that. obviously. all the usual limitations that come with a lockout in terms of transactions and communications with. players specifically about. their roles are on the team. those things will will be limitations, that we would be dealing with in that scenario.
3:48 pm
>> what everyone wants to know right is will this affect the season. the hope is that this will all be resolved well before the start of the 2022 season. there have been 3 prior lockouts. they were all before 1990. and in those ones, no regular season games were ever missed. so the expectation is that the league and the players union are going to continue these fierce negotiations over the next several months. justine at some time to work it out. thank you, kate. all right. the california highway patrol is asking people not to do this for likes and shares on social media. this was the scene in southern california early yesterday morning, a chp officer says a man was driving a go-kart. >> along highway one in one on one trying to make a youtube video. the patrol officer pulled him over and cited him. chp had a message when they posted this video saying, quote, absolutely 0 social media content is worth putting your life or others in danger. shaking her head, an ohio
