7:31 am
seen confusion from time to time over. >> different vaccines. their safety, their efficacy. and of course, the need to adapt to with these new variants as they come up. the question now is what happens when the omicron variant cases plateau. we've crop forcefully call speaking with it. public health officer who discusses what he thinks may happen next. >> contagiousness a new property. those are the 3 characteristics infectious disease specialists examined when the new variant of covid-19 is detected compared to alpha and delta. we know on the kron is far less virulent. it is highly contagious, but the illness it causes is less severe. leading to fewer hospitalizations, seeing a virus that is much more infectious right now. we estimate that about one in 20 residents in marin county is infected. >> and what happened in lockdown? because we don't need to because this virus is less of a county public health
7:32 am
officer doctor matt willis says he expects the explosion of omicron cases to soon level off and likely drop significantly. >> but doctor willis says we should expect more variants to come. when i hear that, you know, places like spain, they're talking about just letting it rip, you know, basically just allowing this to continue through the way we would approach influenza. >> or other viruses. that's understandable as a strategy. we're not there yet. we think it's important to take steps to continue to prevent transmission where they make sense for us. but it is we are making progress towards that. eventually. future. mc relationship with this virus. doctor willis says once a variant moves through a community, it will likely stay in the past. he says the key to working out of the pandemic is to continue to make the vaccine widely available. >> and masking when appropriate to prevent transmission. eventually testing for the virus will not be a priority but ultimately
7:33 am
covid-19 is here to stay indefinitely. felipe kron 4 news years. and i look like in an effort to slow the omicron surge, tougher workplace rules are set to go into effect today here in california. >> employees will now have to get a covid-19 test after exposure in the workplace. and you can no longer just take a rapid test on your own. instead, employees will have to go to a lab or take a test in front of a supervisor or health care professional. cal osha is also tightening its rules of what qualifies as a face covering the new definition includes a surgical mask, a medical procedure mask a respirator or cloth masks that have at least 2 layers. state labor leaders, by the way, are calling on the california legislature to bring back covid sick pay. you may remember the covid sick pay expired last september. if the legislature decides to bring it back, it won't resume or won't resemble what california had last year. that's because in 2021 there was a federal funding component that helps support small businesses. and that's
7:34 am
no longer in play this time around. so lawmakers are asking for sick pay to be paid with money from the state's surplus. there is state sen david cortes. he believes that sick pay is one of the best ways to slow the spread of the virus. >> this is simply a policy that would prevent the spread of covid-19 to keep workers safe on job. little paid sick leave is one of those portent weapons against the virus to slow the spread. that's the science. that's not just an economic issue. a worker protection issue. that's the science. >> if bringing back sick pay does move forward. it's unclear exactly how quickly it governor newsom is on record right now saying that sick leave is a top priority for him. so he's pushing for it as well. the pandemic is also having a major effect on children's mental health. a growing number of psychologists like doctor brenda wade say that they're seeing an uptick in teens experiencing high levels of depression, anxiety, eating
7:35 am
disorders and other mental health concerns. >> all the things that you still hold. they had their classrooms. they had their teachers. they had friends. they had activities. they had sports. they had music. they had all those things. the teams typically have. but philip, their life and most importantly, give them emotional support and direction. >> doctor wade recommends modeling the behavior you want to see your children, including learning ways to stay calm yourself and talking about your own stress with them basically lead, by example, we have the full interview if you'd like to see it. but doctor wade on our website at kron 4 dot com. college enrollment continues to drop during this pandemic. it's another part of all this, according to a report by the national student clearinghouse research center. undergraduate enrollment dropped 3% in the fall of 2021. compared to 2020. it's now dropped 6.6% since 2019 and that amounts to 1.2 million students in all
7:36 am
community colleges are getting hit the hardest with enrollment down over 13%. in other news this morning, if you are driving through downtown san francisco, get ready to slow down speed limits are being lowered from 25 to just 20 miles per hour for 7 streets in the city. we haven't listed on your screen include 24th street, fillmore street, haight street polk ocean, san bruno and valencia street. and this is all due to a law that went into effect at the start of the year that allow cities to lower speed limits in areas where at least half of the buildings along the corridor have commercial uses. meaning there may be some double parking and the like. so i know that on the streets, the speed limit has gone down. cannabis industry leaders are demanding state lawmakers cut some taxes and regulations for the legal market that they say is on the brink of shutting down. they want lawmakers to repeal the cultivation taxes that they say are onerous and burdensome the cannabis leaders say that the price of their legal product is driving customers towards the illegal market
7:37 am
just for the lower cost. security is another concern for the legal sellers of cannabis. they say they can't have bank accounts and so they have become now targets for big cash robberies. spend the tax for a period of time or we can reduce it for a period of time. >> again, i think one of the things that we really need to look at is still requirement by a lot of local jurisdictions to require you to have a brick and mortar facility before you can even get a license. makes no sense. >> governor newsom says the state expects to bring in 787 million dollars from the cannabis industry in the form of the current tax rate. portions will go to youth services, land acquisitions and law enforcement. we'll be following the story. we'll see if sacramento does anything differently about taxing cannabis companies. we'll take a break at 7.37. still ahead on the kron 4 morning news. we're talking sports, the forty-niners. they're preparing for sunday night's playoff game against the cowboys from 4 sports director jason dumas will have an update from the players.
