some games have been postponed because of players
4:13 pm
testing positive in mlb. let's bring in joe to talk about what is going on with the league and the ramifications for other teams. joe? >> [ inaudible ] games over the weekend, but now there have been two games postponed tonight, and points out again how tenuous the situation is, and points out kind of a domino effect that the whole situation potentially has come into play. we'll start with was the miami marlins played their first series this weekend in philadelphia. they found out at least 14 playerors members of the organization have tested positive for the coronavirus. the marlins played yesterday's game already knowing at least four people had tested positive. here is where the domino effect starts. the marlins home opener tonight against baltimore has been post personned, and tonight's scheduled game in philadelphia with the new york yankees coming to town has also been
4:14 pm
postponed. the marlins had just co atnta where they played a an exhibition game, and the washington nationals are scheduled to be in miami this weekend, and their manager has concerns. >> it's unfortunate for the marlins that this had happened, but as you can see, you know, it's affected not only them, but, you know, the phillies, you know, the yankees, baltimore. a lot of things have transpired since then. because of my heart condition, what happens, you know, to me if i do get it? so i've got to be extra careful. i'm going to be honest with you, i'm scared. >> marlins ceo derek jeter said his teams primary focus is an health, while saying that the postpone 789 of tonight's game today. they played yesterday's game
4:15 pm
knowing that at least four players had already tested positive, and they had no intention of not playing. so to say that baseball's situation is precarious right now would be a serious understatement with at least two games postponed. they're not saying canceled yet, but subject to what developing further, as far as testing is concerned. >> yeah. well these developments certainly very concerning for the situation moving forward, joe, thank yo battle facing major joined this afternoon dr. peter, an infectious disease expert. this highlights the challenge of trying to play any team sport, even with very strict guidelines. >> yes, that's right, heather. i think the mlb has done a fantastic job for preparing for
4:16 pm
all combinations. they have a large instruction manual. they have done really good testing with saliva of all of the players. 14,000 tests a week. but it was about time when one of these things would happen to sort of jeopardize the season. hopefully it won't be too much in jeopardy, but i think maintaining safety is probably the most important thing. >> when you look, though, at these numbers and this outbreak, what does it tell you about just how contagious covid- 19 is? >> well, it's very contagious within a pod, and a pod of players to share the locker room together, there are lots of surfaces, there's a lot of sweat, a lot of shouting and screaming emotion. these are all features that make the virus jump from one person who is infected on a droplet to another person's nose or mouth. >> and, doctor, when we talk
4:17 pm
about this idea of uninterrupted sports here in america, what is it going to take for that to happen? i mean, we see the nba. it's sort of keeping players, coaches, even media covering the upcoming games in a bubble. is that the answer? >> the bubble is an answer, and i think this could be a playbook for schools as well. when you have people in bubbles when someone is infected, you can quarantine or isolate the bubble, and then the other bubbles hopefully won't be affected. however, if this case, if the bubble was already infected at the time they were there in contact with the other groups, then a larger group of people are out of play so to ople if t minimizes the effect on the entire organization. >> yeah, and on different locations, doctor. in terms of what the mlb was doing, it was still having
4:18 pm
teams travel from city to city, versus what the nba plans to do, which is everyone in one location. do you believe that that's how other sports may move forward? >> think other sports will be looking very closely at what happens with mlb, and maybe adjusting. the german football league, or soccer, where they're keeping people, again, in a closed and tight compound is another example. it just depends on how much risks you are willing to take. also i would say at this time may not be representative of the time when the other sports leagues play, because, for example, if you take the marlins, for example, florida is undergoing a tremendous surge right now of covid-19. so it makes sense that they would be one of the first bubbles affected. >> yeah, it certainly does when you look at cases and things like that that are surging in certain parts of the country.
4:19 pm
dr. peter, always a pleasure, thank you so much. >> thank you so much, heather. another pleasant day around the bay area. i feel like i say that every day these days. we are not seeing a whole lot of change. a little warmer over the weekend. today temperatures very similar, and tomorrow i think similar once again. we do is low clouds at the coastline at this hour. and there's a look there for you into areas of the east bay. we will continue with this pattern. santa rosa right now a nice warm day for you there at 77. 70 in oakland. upper 80s in livermore. upper 80s over areas around san jose. livermore and half moon bay and sawhat we had yesterday, at least when it comes to the temperatures. we haven't lost the onshore breeze. there it is.

back now to our coverage on the tributes this week to the late congressman john lewis. the civil rights icon in this country. and these are live pictures from washington d.c., his body is lying in state in the capital rotunda. one of many tributes to the late congressman happening this week. we are joined by a man who knew him well, amos brown, and reverend brown is president of the san francisco naacp. you were both freedom riders in
4:35 pm
equality. and you have written that you knew back then that lewis, congressman lewis, would make a mark on this country. what was it about his personality and his character that made you believe that? >> number one, he was humble enough to follow the teachings of his mentor and my mentor, dr. martin luther king jr., and he was unapologetic about his being introduced to the nature of this civil rights movement through dr. martin luther king jr. ar oldethe same circumstance that prompted us
4:36 pm
to become involved. one was murder, lynching of emmelt teel, who was the same age that i was. and, number two , the montgomery boycott, and the success of that nonviolent movement, under the leadership of dr. martin luther king. i was privileged to meet dr. king before john. i met him in 1956 here in san francisco when wiley everett, first field director of the naacp, asked my mother and i could come to san francisco as a reward for my having founded the first youth council of naacp in the state of mississippi in 1955, in the wake of the lynching of emmett
4:37 pm
till. i think that today it's most unfortunate that the legacy of reverend john lewis has been disright-hand, dishonored by the violence free riders, and professional rebel rousers have perpetrated in the black lives matter matter in our struggle for civil and human rights. >> reverend, obviously we are seeing protesters across this country, who are continuing to take to the streets, calling for racial equality, calling for equal rights and justice in this country. what do you believe those who are part of this current movement, the black lives matter movement, what should they remember about congressman lewis's leadership and his determination that can help to
4:38 pm
guide them? >> to be enlightened about the nature of the movement. that's why he sat at the feet of dr. king. that's why he red dr. howard washington thurman, who established the first interfaith church here in san francisco, fellow ship church, of all people, that still exists over at broadway and larkin. he was a disciplined freedom fighter, and 1960, before we got involved there as students in the civil rights movement, demonstrations against segregation at lunch counter wednesday when we met in a conference room of harkness hall, and men who were
4:39 pm
president of those institutions, those black institutions, said we're not s demonstrating, bue doing what y doing. and i was a part of the committee in atlanta that wrote a document that was not about civil rights, but it was about human rights, and the title of that document was that published in the atlanta journal constitution before we sat down was an appeal on human rights. we had a world view. it was not just about liberation of black people. we were concerned about all people, and john lewis it if that model, that image, and that style of leadership. and i hope, i hope that this generation will take the time to really honor his sacred
4:40 pm
memory, and labors. >> reverend, as we wrap up here, we are watching live pictures from washington d.c. right now, where congressman lewis's flag-dripped casket is lying in state. over the weekend, i'm sure you saw the powerful moment when the congressman crossed the edmund pettus bridge one final time. what did that moment mean for you? >> it meant for me that we would heed the spirit and the ellow questions of reverend doctor john lewis, and even as thedebate goes on about changing the name of that bridge, if john lewis was able to come back to this crusted earth, he would say don't let it be just my name. let it stay there. the same as was the case in
4:41 pm
atlanta, when the airport was renamed. it was named for harkness and jackson. jackson was the first black mayor of atlanta. we've got to be about coming together and get rid of the divisiveness that donald trump has inflicted upon this nation. we must not become doers of wrong. we must not become that which we hated. we did not like people that are mean to us. we should not be mean to others. and that represents the spirit of john lewis, and that's why he even met with the man who beat him in north carolina, and he accepted the man's apology in the presence of his son, and i think that we cannot fight
4:42 pm
fire with fire, an eye for an eye, should not ever be in our movement. >> we have to leave the conversation there. we greatly appreciate you coming on today to talk about congressman lewis, his life, and his very important legacy in this country. reverend amos brown, president of the san francisco naacp. thank you for your nk you very opportunity. around the bay area this afternoon, a nice one for most. a little warm inland. a tad cool for some along the coast, but most of us enjoying another beautiful summer day. looking at satellite and radar, moving in a little bit closer here, you can see we are dealing with thunderstorm once again over the sierra, and take

4:48 pm
been devastated by the ongoing pandemic, with airlines making sanitation an even higher priority in an effort to try to lure back passengers. joining me to talk about which airlines are doing it right in the fight against covid-19 is the senior editor with the planes lab. you are out with a new list ranking airlines, and a big factor is how those airlines are responding to the ongoing pandemic. >> yeah, that's right. we attempted to come up with a list that would quantify how the airlines have responded, look at things like cleaning procedures, and, of course, 0 how they have treated their loyal members throughout this outbreak. >> okay. so how did they do? >> well, the top spot went to delta airlines. they've done a number of things to kind of stand above the risk. rigorous cleaning procedures. they were the first airline to extend medallion
4:49 pm
have committed to continuing blocking meddle seats through at least september of 2020. >> so let's talk about those that are sort of in the middle of head to road here. >> the two big ones in the middle were american and united. they were hurt by a couple of things. they have stopped blocking middle seats, and within the last several weeks they've started fill their planes to capacity. so that really hurt their score in the onboard experience category. united was hurt by a couple of never changes they made during the pandemic to their mileage plus loyalty program and they implemented some pretty punitive refund policies to those who had their flights canceled as a result of the pandemic. and let's talk about the airline that kind of falls in the worst category that you looked at. >> at the bottom of our list
4:50 pm
was spirit. and i want to stress that doesn't mean that spirit is doing nothing. they have implemented a lot of cleaning procedures to ensure that customers are safe, but they have barely made any changes to its loyalty program. they also haven't done any kind of blocked middle seats or limited capacity. so there are chances that if you're flying spirit, you're going to wind up in a pretty full cabin, which can, of course, create the potential for more likely spread of covid- 19. >> and how much do you think all of this, the new way of ticketing, you know, mask wearing, all of that, how do you think that is affecting the flying public? >> well, i think at the end of the day we haven't seen any notable outbreaks that can be traced back to a specific flight where there was poor cleaning othis is about customer perception. how do you help provide the perception for customers that
4:51 pm
you are taking this seriously. i think what will be interesting is how many of these policies continue post pandemic, once we get to the other side of this. are we going to see more flexibility with canceling and changing flights. in the past, that would cost you up to $400 per passenger. are airlines going to be more lenient? we'll have to see. >> yeah, we have to see if this is a new way of doing business. all right, nick, really appreciate it. thanks so much. >> yeah, thanks for having me. well, the oakland zoo has officially reopened to members after a month's long closure that nearly shut the zoo down for good. members can visit today and tomorrow for a preview, and then the zoo is going to open to the public any wednesday. the zoo is limiting guest capacity to 2500 people were day, which is about a third of normal, and tickets do have to be purchased in advance. some members showed up early to be first in line and catch the animals reactions as the zoo welcomes back crowds. >> i can't wait to see the
4:52 pm
