obviously the forty-niners this weekend. begins their quest for the super bowl. we've got the cowboys. let's go to dallas to face off round one of the playoffs. kron four's will tran live for us at levi stadium where 40 niner fans obviously going to be cheering them on big excitement this weekend. well, >> biggest excitement. we do expect niners fans the show up to their gift shop once it opens up so they can get all their jerseys and a lot of 90's fans, james, they will be traveling to big d and apparently that's not making jerry jones, the owner of the dallas cowboys. very happy. so he's telling the fans for the cowboys to show up and where their white jerseys and white t shirts for a white out. we'll just have to see when they panned to the audience. james, how much red will be in attendance? but the bottom line is you said it a little bit earlier. this is the first time too 5 time super bowl champion teams are facing each other cowboys niners. that's the way it should be. and you know what also should be both
9:09 am
at full strength, both teams. and here's practice from the niners all week. they are healing just in the nick of time. so they're going to be at full strength. jimmy g not a problem. yes, the 3 weeks ago in his throwing in look perfect last week against the rams. so he's good to go left tackle trent williams. he is a big part of the niners offense, especially with the ground and pound that they want to do the running game. he'll be back alijah mitchell. he'll be running as well. that rookie sensation george kittle a big part as well catching blocking. he is ready to go. he's thinking big picture. but you know what, before you think? big picture, you think small picture meeting, one win at a time. here's george kittle talking about that. >> now we're on the road, guaranteed. for the next 3 games were going back to where we want to every single snap matters does matter from the back side of the ron front
9:10 am
side on the backs have a pass. it doesn't matter what your role is. you have to do it the best, your ability, every single snap because you don't know if you get another if you lose that game, you know, you're not. there's no guarantees are going back to next year. >> kickoff at one 30, the niners. they have to travel the dallas cowboys have a better record. their nfc east champions. but i know niners fans. they know this that, you know, the cowboys, they beat up on the nfc east, but they struggle against the other teams. it's going to be a good one. las vegas basically has it as a push right now with the cowboys. plus 3 or -3, i should say. and they always get 3 points for home-field advantage. so those people with millions of dollars at stake, they don't even know who is going to win. i'm not going to say who is going to win. i'm not going to be bias like that. >> i grew up in seattle, but i'm a lifelong dallas cowboys fan. so i'm not going to say who's going to win. but james,
9:11 am
and you're going to love this my kids are from the bay area. they were born here. just like your kids. yeah, i don't have a problem for them. routing the niners and they are big niners fans. and if you can't pass along good try to do a lot of things getting blamed. you know, we drive my best with what we can blame their mom. you know, that make you can forty-niners fans. >> saw it. but as you started holding up that jersey yoli pushed the camera and on the forty-niners logo behind you because she big 40 niner fan too. and i know we'll she's born and raised there, yours absolutely. and will been getting a lot of flack online for being a dallas cowboy fan. that's fine. folks, relax. he's not malicious. he's just misguided. we're still working on thank it's going make a chime in social out to our general manager jim rose. >> he's from everybody said, are you a niners fan because
9:12 am
he lives here as well. i remember when he showed up and became our boss, he said. >> i'm a pittsburgh steelers fan. that's where he's from. so you know what? you have to own it. there is nothing more the newsroom's and then they move. they're all of a sudden they become the fans because they have to because they we are in a new place. there's nothing worse than fake news room not that we have any here. kron. >> thank you very much. he's the time. still ahead on the kron, 4 morning news governor newsome visiting the bay area to push a plan on how he's going to improve transportation. >> and our infrastructure. so we'll take a closer look at his message. and also after the break, that recent rain that we saw the storm after storm after storm. well, it actually did a bit to help our water crisis will take a look at the new drought map. and now we drive back out. but hopefully we do have a change of pace ahead of us in the meantime, might as well enjoy the sunshine, have bogged sfo
9:13 am
earlier. now it's nice and clear. we should stay that way through the day with highs in the 60's. >> your forecast ahead.
9:14 am
9:15 am
>> 9.15, is the time. alright, let's talk about the big development in our drought emergency. we know we had weeks of the winner. stormy weather here recently while
9:16 am
the entire state of california benefit from that, we're now out of the exceptional drought category, which we had been in for quite a while, though. experts say we still need to conserve water. we have kron four's gayle ong here to explain. >> all the rain and snow from the fall and winter came down all at once, making a dent on the state's drought. here's the latest map on the left is from october when most of the state was an exceptional drought on the right 3 months later, us drought monitor data showing all of california is now under severe to moderate conditions after 2 years significant rainfall deficits. >> year so far for the water here. and by the way, the water year runs from october. first through september, 30th this year for the water year around the bay area. we're sitting in the 150 to 200% of normal thus far. meteorologists brian garcia with the national weather service ads. we can expect a midwinter dry spell. this is something that we typically see. the question now is. do
9:17 am
we roll back into a wet pattern as we get towards the end of january and february? that's why garcia says we can't forget about water conservation. we don't know ultimately what the rest of the water your fault for us. and we want to make sure that our reservoirs are in good shape to take us through the hot summer and potentially a dry winter next. winter water restrictions are still in place in several bay area counties. and we did put in water >> we didn't quite hit our targets of 4 desired levels of reduction. captain cushing is a professor of environmental studies at san jose state university about 50% of water use goes to outdoor irrigation. so if you think a little bit more as strategically about making our outdoor irrigation needs fit the climate of the area, which is semi air. if you can actually save up to 50% of all residential water use gayle ong kron. 4 news. 9.17. >> is that i'm all right. let's get over to the weather
9:18 am
center piggyback off of that drought monitor. update with john. nice to see things actually proving a little bit, john. yeah, i like the tone of that big improvements and we could be so happy for those. but at the same time, even though we certainly are not red or maroon anymore where we started the season, we're not quite to the end goal just yet. only about halfway there from exceptional to severe. and as you can see, we saw moderate normal conditions to get through all of the bay area. still under that severe drought. portions of the very northern part of the state barely hanging on to extreme 7 to celebrate. also a moment to take pause and know that we still have to conserve and still have some work to do. obviously, as far as the winter season goes, we'd love to see some more rain. but this mid-winter break does continue. this morning. we did see some fog in san jose that has since burned off in the progress ahead of us through the afternoon is going to keep us nice and clear. so today continuing a trend that we've seen all week long of mostly sunny skies, a little less hayes than yesterday, which is certainly a nice know, staying
9:19 am
just as dry and just as mild. today's daytime highs are actually going to be a repeat of yesterday's for many areas. san jose at 64, same for you in napa. well, santa rosa are most mild spot today at 66. tomorrow's highs will be right e as today as will be sunday. just a little cooler on monday and leveling out through next week in los take hold bayside in coastal lows. chilly as well. now bridges this morning having been too much of an issue, certainly been an easier go on the bay bridge than yesterday was you're below 10 minutes to make it across the span there under some sunshine after fog earlier on the san mateo bridge. also nice and clear. you also have fog earlier. that's since gone. but it has left the deck of the bridge little bit on the wet side after this. misty morning. as for the richmond center fell, also nice and clear you had a backup at the toll plaza there that has since eased. and now it's pretty smooth sailing. and if you are driving the golden gate bridge are doing so under sunny conditions and nice roadways, james. all right, john, thank you very much. 9.19, the time governor
9:20 am
newsome was in the bay area to promote his new. >> budget proposal for the state. the talk about how he plans to address transportation ano infrastructure. this 9 billion dollar budget plan pushes toward clean and climate friendly transit projects. he was a big prawn, a proponent of that. it also includes billions in support for ports and the movement of goods throughout the state as well as the goal finally finishing the state's high speed rail project which is taking forever a big part. >> of our broader strategy is to connect the central valley central coast, northern california, southern california, the entire state. >> california. >> will it ever happen though? that's the question. newsom's proposal also commits 10 billion dollars of state funding over the next 2 years to move us towards a 0 emission cars. the governor says there's already millions of dollars in federal funding set aside for that very same cause. we'll take a break. it is 9.20, coming up. >> a push at our state capitol to reinstate covid 6. hey,
9:21 am
we're going hear from one bay area lawmaker who says that very thing alone could really help us with this latest covid surge.
9:22 am
9:23 am
>> we're back at 9.23, a number of new movies are out in theaters this weekend, including a new movie in the scream horror franchise. we've got dean richards with a preview.
9:24 am
>> there are certain rules to survive. believe me. i know. this one just feels different. >> back in 1997, a new breed of horror movie was unleashed with the now iconic scream with the ghost faced killer ravaging a small town and its young inhabitants, including nev campbell. courtney and david arquette. now the trio returns with a new naive cast who become the prey for the new but same old killer. the formula for the movie is intentionally similar to most of the others. it's because this version of scream takes the genre and deals with it as part of the storyline explained as if the murders in the town and the suspects are playing it out like a predictable horror movie. it's part of the genius of this movie. it's super software spoofing honoring and furthering the elements of the franchise that allow it to go
9:25 am
to predictable places. but at the same time makes fun of it. all. now there's no shortage of creepy characters, shocks and white knuckling moments that would make the franchise's original director, the late wes craven, proud. and it's great to see the legacy actors back and in pretty substantial roles in the movie. horror films are usually my favorite genre because there's usually not much to the mix of blood and gore. and this has those. but it also has a level of cleverness that usually missing in these movies. i give it a dean's list b, plus, it's in theaters only points cry sleep. and also this week they're shakespeare's the tragedy of macbeth. you may remember it from an english class from back in the day. the story of greed and last in power and the willingness to do anything to achieve it here. you're basically watching a stage play been filmed, but from the perspective of a master class in acting from 2 time, oscar

9:30 am
alameda at 50 degrees. now san mateo at 53 pacifica at 57 degrees. already, bridges have overall been pretty clear this morning. we had that major issue in the bay bridge yesterday so far this morning. it just been fog earlier on, but that's gone. now you can see there is still some lingering in the distance along the east bay shoreline below 10 minutes to get you across the span. and just above 10 minutes over the san mateo bridge, which is also moving along just fine evidence of this morning's misty and foggy conditions. and that wet surface of the roadway. there. and as for the richmond center fell bridge been a smooth go. it was taking you a minute to get to the toll plaza that is eased and have a travel at the limit all across the span, golden gate bridge is also doing just fine, james. all right, john, thank you very much. well, globally, the pandemic, as we know, has caused more than 2 years of uncertainty. now we've seen lockdowns. we've seen confusion, vaccines. >> and variants, which we've had to constantly adapt to. so the question going forward is
9:31 am
what happens next. we've got the omicron variant kron four's djegal actually spoke with a public health officer to talk about maybe what, 2020 to look like. >> gary, let's 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 blaine county is infected. >> and what happened in lockdown? because we don't need to because this virus is less of a county public health 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
9:32 am
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 waiver. that 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 covid-19 is here to stay indefinitely. felipe kron 4 news years. and i look like. >> well, in an effort to slow
9:33 am
the omicron workplace rules are going to go. changes go into effect today here in california. so employees will now have to get a covid-19 test after they're exposed to the workplace. you can no longer just get a rapid test that you take home either. instead, an employee will have to go to a lab or take a test in front of a supervisor where health care professional cal osha is also tightening its rules of what kind of qualifies as appropriate face covering this new definition now will include what they described as, quote, a surgical mask, a medical procedure mask or respirator or cloth masks that must have at least 2 layers. now, state labor leaders are also calling on california lawmakers to bring back covid sick pay. you may remember that that that pick sick pay expired last september. and if the legislature doesn't fact bring it back, it won't be quite what we had last year. and that's because back in 2021, there was a federal funding component that helped support small businesses. we don't have that anymore. so lawmakers are asking instead for sick pay to be paid with
9:34 am
money from the state's surplus bay area state senator david cortes. he believes that sick pay will be one of the best ways of slowing the spread of the virus. >> this is simply a policy that would prevent the spread of covid-19 keep workers safe on job. little paid sick leave is one of those port and 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 could be implemented. although governor gavin newsom is on record saying that sick leave is a top priority for him. so he'll work to push it through. if you can. the pandemic, by the way, is having a major effect on children's mental health kron. four's theresa stasi spoke with a local psychologist about how to help children, whether through this latest surge of the pandemic. >> one of the trickiest things about spotting depression in teenagers is that teenagers
9:35 am
can do what we call mood altering nationally known psychologist doctor brenda wade, tackling some big issues concerning covid-19 and the mental health of children going through this pandemic. if there's anything i want our listeners to take away today. it's that children's brains are finished for girls. not until 24 for boys. not until 26. the doctor says it is vital right now to pay close attention. she says teens can be taxing one minute and see him happy. then fall down into a depression. we have to look at the big picture around them and say how could they be fine. so we've got to go into a lot of restructuring and a different kind of parenting. she has children need our support more than ever. all the things that used to hold, they had their classrooms. they had their teachers. they had friends without that direction. without that emotional support. sadly, we have an epidemic of teen

9:37 am
being lowered from the current. 25 miles an hour down to 20 on 7 streets in the city. and we've listed on your screen there and they include 24th street film or hate polk street ocean avenue, san bruno avenue and valencia street. this is all part of a law that went into effect at the beginning of the year, which gives cities the power to lower speed limits in areas where at least half of the buildings along that corridor have a commercial use. so there's one way they're going to try to make the streets a little bit safer. just 20 miles an hour. >> 9.37 on the clock. still ahead on the kron, 4 morning news. the 49 ers are preparing for sunday night's playoff against the cowboys and will hear from kron. 4 sports director jason dumas says and from the players to about how to get ready. plus, millions of student loans have been wiped clean. thanks to a settlement with one of the country's largest loan companies. could this impact your student loan? stay tuned. we'll tell you. and after the break, residents and businesses could be a title to unclaimed money of one of in
