7:01 am
across the east bay. the santa clara valley as well as along the bay side head up indoor north bay valleys. so be mindful of that. a few extra minutes never hurts, but it's going to come in handy this morning. current temperatures are in the 40's and 50's. so a cool start to this day. once the fog burns off, it's still going to be hazy sunshine for us. we'll be breaking down what else to expect this weekend in a big pattern change for next week. all still ahead, john, thanks for that. while we are seeing fog in fairfield lay on all those areas. we still have some other accidents like this one in fremont. >> westbound 84, just west of the dumb barton bridge and another accident. this is along northbound one 85 north of roadway in hayward as you're traveling heading into the city a little under 60 minutes for your drive time. 2 accidents here along the bay bridge earlier near the tolls. it looks like they were able to get but we're still seeing residual delays. the fog. we're talking about along a teaser traveling duval label hercules venetian antioch bridge again. take your time as driving because visibility, there is low darya james, back
7:02 am
to you. thank you ray 71 and our top story. president biden is making another push for americans who haven't gotten a covid shot or a booster to do it now. yeah, in fact, he laid out his response plan to the new omicron covid variant. >> so the variant, as we've reported, has now been detected in at least 5 different states. of course it was first detected right here in the bay area. san francisco specifically. yeah. there's also a case in los angeles now and the president's plan includes several steps increasing booster outreach. opening new family vaccination clinic clinics. >> increasing covid response teams and making at home. covid tests more readily available and also sharing the vaccine with more people around the world. >> one thing he the plans not to do, though, is to create more mandates on top of what we already have. >> the plan. i'm announcing today's a plan. our scientists and covid teams have recommended. and while my existing federal vaccination requirements are being reviewed by the courts. this
7:03 am
plan does not expand or add to those mandates. a planned, all americans hopefully can rally around and it should be and should get bipartisan support in my humble opinion should unite us not continue to separate us. >> now, while there are no more than dates for vaccines to made that clear there are more mandates for travel. that's why we have a live shot at sfo, right. yeah. tighter restrictions on travelers that are coming into the country of course, all in an effort to try to slow down the spread of the coronavirus and this omicron variant. we know it's here. we're just trying to slow its spread. kron four's will tran has been following this and all but actually all of our crews have been following this. and in addition to the new covid policy about international travel. there's going to be more testing as well. and the president made it clear. >> that the mask mandates are going to stay at the airports and all public chance. but that's going to last until mid-march. >> i think jen getting it. this before playing in is a good 24 it's going to be a bit
7:04 am
tight but not all countries quick tell so that might be i love traveling. so as long as i'm vaccinated, i'll would and that site is vaccinated and everybody what a mask. i very comfortable. >> it's just that you don't a lot of time now because they have one day and to make sure they have a negative test. and then here are the vans because the u.s. ban on us citizens from 8 southern african nations from being able to come into the country for now. >> okay. bringing the focus back here to bay area. big story. google employees are not going to be required to come back to the office next month. as had been originally scheduled. kron four's will tran is live at the offices in mountain view with more on the reason why i will. >> good morning area just to piggyback of what you said a little bit earlier about travel restrictions. that was a very fluid situation, right. i mean, they just changed it from 3 days down to one day as far as covid-19 negative test
7:05 am
will. google is doing the same thing. everything is so fluid that they are changing some of the things that they thought were set in motion, including we see the the office is right behind me. there are set to be probably mostly full come january 10th win. people were required, not asked but required to come back to work on a hybrid bases on january 10. so a little bit more than a month ago. and all of a sudden the variant just took over the world and let's face it, they don't. variant doesn't adjust to us. we have to adjust to the variant and google is doing that for the second time in recent months because in august they were set to return in september. so that was the plan to return to the buildings in september. but then the delta variant it. so they pushed it back until january 10th. well with his latest very of the omicron variant. they pushed it back to who knows because they're not even going to bother james and area to set a date down the road say march or april.
7:06 am
if they just say it's a very fluid situation. they're going to monitor it. they are encouraging employees to head back inside the buildings from time to time that the buildings are still open to come back time. the time to have the muscle memory to at least still be acquainted. with her co-workers who are there. but as far as requiring people to head back inside, even on a limited basis. that's not going to happen any time soon. google has a lot of offices. united this pertains to the u.s. officers like the ones right behind me in mountain view. we have other offices in other countries and they say they're leaving it up to those places to make their determination. but as far as this plenty of parking, right. parking is an issue in the bay area. first many parts not going to be a problem here. if you're heading back from time to time. back to you. all right. thanks a lot. well. >> 7 '06, is the time and finding an open appointment for your covid booster shot is getting a little more challenging. a lot of locations that we checked out.
7:07 am
the actually don't have availability till early next year. experts say getting that booster shot later than you would prefer is still better than not getting it all. they say if you're already fully vaccinated, you're still protected from the virus. take a listen to how they put it. >> rather than having fomo about people getting and running for really even those 2 doses, you're really, really well and kind beast. i care the most about which is making you get really sick enough to go to the hospital and potentially die. >> officials say that as of now, people who have tested positive for the omicron variant but were fully vaccinated, though they didn't have the booster yet. only experienced mild symptoms. so again, if you're fully vaccinated, then you should be ok, just get that booster when you can. and they say that pregnant women should get the booster and the covid shots as well. in fact, one mother in the north bay. >> is saying that because she didn't do it and she got very sick with covid and now
7:08 am
they're fine. they've made a full recovery but kron four's gayle ong has the story. >> baby. naomi hile was brought into the world via c section after mom sarah was severely ill with covid-19. i was trying to talk. >> i can't breathe. i remember looking at the doctor and. i said please help me situation like mine can be prevented by getting vaccinated. >> the vaccine at the time of her pregnancy had just started rolling out due to limited data. sarah decided not to get the shot while pregnant after 2 previous miscarriages fair and her husband matthew both came down with covid matthew who is fully vaccinated had a breakthrough case with mild symptoms. the that are held are sharing this story to encourage other pregnant women to get the shot. there will be a lot of emotional healing. >> that will have to take place and makes me something that i know kind of a. stuck with that with the nurses make you that. i said that i will
7:09 am
never take another deep breath for granted ever. >> sarah met naomi 10 days after her birth. she was born 7 weeks early. weighing only 4 pounds and rushed to the nic u where she stayed for more than 5 weeks. the cdc and doctors say the covid-19 vaccine is the safest route for pregnant women, women who are lactating or breastfeeding and also for women who are thinking about getting pregnant in the almost year now that we've had this vaccine. >> we've given several billion doses of this around the world. so this is not an untested even if you've had a mild covid-19 section before you were pregnant. >> during the pregnancy. you can still get the and it's strongly recommended that natural immunity. you producing your own antibodies to covid-19 can be people started improved and create a safer environment for your pregnancy. gayle ong kron 4 news.
7:10 am

7:11 am
years. otherwise we'll have to pay back a prorated portion of that $50,000 signing bonus. we'll take a break at 7.10 coming up on the kron 00:00am morning news, a government shutdown is averted by lawmakers on capitol hill. >> we'll have the latest details from washington in just a minute. plus another car burglary in san francisco. this one caught on camera. we'll have all that video for you in a moment. plus, if you live in the north bay. your water right to the taste, ok, and it might not. we'll tell you why. >> and we are going to be seeing a very miss of misty morning with some fog out there, very dense in some areas as that poll, just one of those areas sitting under the great later on today. hazy sunshine with highs only in the 60's. your forecast ahead. >> all along some of our bridges and highways slowing us down on this friday morning. we'll take a look at that and your updated drive times once we get back from break.

7:15 am
going maybe smell a little musty or taste. a little earth ii. but they say it is still safe to drink. and i don't as you know, james have a problem drinking or eating things that. but a lot of people do. and that's ok, so, yes, you know, his filter is it feels on your faucet just yes. are some of with catch on in the weather center with our forecast today got and it's going to be another one with some fog to start and some hazy sunshine to finish today. a few changes to note, though. first is probably which are already noticing that fog is a lot more widespread. >> and dense than it has been earlier this week. this is a very great start for san francisco and visibility is really being affected in the santa clara valley. the east bay and across the north bay too little clear out towards the coastline. not necessarily sunny, but at least visibility has improved towards the coast high pressure ridge is keeping all that haze and fog trapped
7:16 am
right in place. we do have a change of pace, though that is going to break this high pressure on into next week. this will eventually offer up the potential of just a couple light sprinkles monday night into tuesday morning, not amounting to much another shot at some light showers thursday night into friday better opportunity for that. the sierra nevada not as high of a potential for the bay area and the following week after that, another storm system that actually looks like it could leave an impact with us. so it's nice to see at least some moisture potential ahead of us next week's not going to bring a whole lot of it really just trace amounts of rainfall for most areas through the course of this next upcoming week. but that's better than the record breaking 70's and sunshine that we've been stuck in a pattern of 50's and 60's for daytime highs today. no more 70's in this forecast. we're a lot closer to where we should be for december and we stay this way too. no spikes in temperatures ahead, although sunday is going to be our sunniest in most mild day next week. it's even cooler with those isolated chances of sprinkles that i mentioned just a second ago reyna. john,
7:17 am

7:18 am
>> hey, daria, good morning. so the headline number job growth last month in the u.s. 210,000 that was a huge mess from expectations. we expected 500, 80,000. but here's the good news. the unemployment rate fell to 4.2% so that is a low that we haven't seen since the pandemic began effect in march of 2020. the unemployment rate was 4.4%. so nice to see that number getting back to normal well, google is reconsidering its return to office plants. so they employees do not have to come back. january 10th this previously expected. now this spokesperson told the verge that google has opened 90% of its offices. people can come in on a voluntary basis. but in terms of requiring them to be there that day keeps getting pushed further and further in the future. fact. they've change that date many times during the pandemic and apple is indicating that the iphone 13 may not be selling as well as expected. it's told according to bloomberg, this component suppliers and that it may not order as many units
7:19 am
as it had previously thought. now if that bloomberg report is accurate, it suggests that the range may not meet apple's initial expectations. they originally a plan to sell 19 million of the iphone thirteen's and burger king's whopper is turning 64 years old. it's giving the sandwich a price to match. so today and tomorrow. burger king will sell the signature sandwich for $0.37 that was the price back in 1957 when it launched live from the nasdaq. i'm jane king. back to you, daryn. thanks a lot of happy weekend to. you will see later, jane. >> 7.19 is the time. another big story this morning, the u.s. government will stay open for now. anyway, thanks to a late night move to pass the stopgap bill to at least keep the government funded through february 18th. we've got anna wiernicki with the latest from dc. >> good morning. that last-minute deal in the senate almost didn't happen just hours before a group of senate republicans threatened to block any funding bill over federal vaccine mandates. >> the yeas are 69. the nays
7:20 am
are 28 and the bill is passed hours before the government was set to run out of money. congress passed a continuing resolution keeping it open through february 18th. i'm happy to let the american people know the government remains open, but thursday's late night vote almost didn't happen. >> a group of senate republicans including utah's mike lee threatened to block the short-term funding bill over president biden's vaccine mandate for larger businesses. it's not government's job. it's not within government's authority to tell people that they must be vaccinated and if they don't get vaccinated, don't get fired. >> it's wrong. it's immoral. the and kansas republican senator roger marshal introduced an amendment that would prevent the use of federal money to carry out the vaccine mandate. let's give employers certainty. employs peace of mind that they will still have a job. this new year, but that amendment failed. no one wants to go to work and be worry. they might come home to their family with a deadly virus. but democrats
7:21 am
criticize the group's demands calling the move a political stunt. how do they explain to the public that they're shutting down government because they don't want people to get vaccinated. the short-term funding bill now heads to the president's desk where president biden has until the end of today to sign it for now in washington. i'm anna wiernicki. back to you. >> thanks anna is 7.21. and coming up, lawmakers are moving out of the state capitol building because they're going to be doing some renovations. the question is. >> is a cosmetic is it is it good way to spend our taxpayer money going to take a look at that.

7:24 am
>> 7.24. and new this morning. the fatal police shooting of sean monterrosa and allay. turns out they say was not reasonable. this is according to a new independent report. >> released by the police department in june of 2020. monterrosa was fatally shot by an officer responding to a report of alluding at walgreens monterrosa did not have a gun. he had a hammer. >> when he was shot. the independent investigation found the officer's decision to use deadly force was objectively reasonable. the report found the officer used poor tactics to de-escalate
7:25 am
the situation. now that officer may face disciplinary action for violating the vallejo police department's policies. >> major move is underway right now. at the state capitol with lawmakers moving out of their offices in preparation for a big renovation project. the capital's annex is set to be demolished to make way for a new upgraded space. for the last 7 decades. 70 years. this annex is housed executive and legislative offices. now this project is expected to cost taxpayers about 1.2 billion dollars legislators defending the demolition say that the current and next as old as asbestos. it has limited access for the disabled has lack of safety measures like exits and sprinklers. so they say it's necessary. the new space will include about a 100 million dollars in upgraded security measures as well. >> it will be a more secure. our modern capital. it will allow the legislature in a term of american people. functional. i bring in all the pieces back under one roof.
7:26 am
