everyone i'm frank somerville and i'm julie julie haener. the news comes as local public health officials say they are investigating at least six possible or confirmed cases of the uk variant in alameda county. new attend tonight, ktvu is and liest live in the city of alameda after talking with an infectious disease expert and people waiting to get vaccinated, amber julie here in alameda, people tell me they're not overly concerned because they have confidence in the vaccines that are rolling out. but what they would like to see is that the vaccines be more readily available at their local pharmacy, people enjoyed the return of outdoor dining along park street in alameda. on this february night, some. say they're aware that the uk variant of the coronavirus is in california, but it's news to them that it's now close to home here in alameda county. all of this is good, so the difference between a new version i'm going to keep doing what i'm gonna keep caring for.
my family were to wear a mask without washing hands were to keep distance. i wasn't really that concerned. i mean, now that we've been to the whole cover thing i'm not is you know is long is the vaccines take care of all the strains? they don't want people to be worried about. dr monica gandhi and infectious disease expert with ucsf says the uk vary. it may be more contagious but isn't necessarily more deadly. what i do know for sure is that the current vaccines that we have authorized in this country work against this variance the most important thing we could do for the american people is get the vaccine in them as fast as possible. then the virus will stop replicating as much and it can't mutate as much. there's nothing more urgent than rolling out the vaccine making covid-19 vaccine. he's more readily available is a component of the biden administration's plan. it announced that the federal government will start distributing vaccines directly to pharmacies across the country starting on february 11th. it's part of the strategy to ramp up vaccinations as new
variants of the virus start to appear. this will provide more sites for people to get vaccinated and their communities. and as an important component, delivering vaccines equitably more than 90% of americans live within five miles of a pharmacy. people we spoke with, say, they're older family members have gotten vaccinated against covid-19, but that the rollout has been slow. so the white house plan is welcome news. think it's a positive being towards the right direction, and i mean i'm ready for once. yeah, we're waiting where we can't wait to get him. dr gandhi says the federal government's plan to get the vaccines the local pharmacies are the way to go make it as easy as getting a flu shot. despite the problems so far with the rollout, she predicts a return to normalcy by september of this year, julie all right, amber lee reporting
live tonight in alameda, amber. thanks. california's top health official today warned about the possibility of a new surgeon coronavirus cases if people don't act responsibly. dr mark galley said that with a super bowl coming up, there could be another spike. your people decide to attend large gatherings. he did not offer any timeline for major improvements in the vaccine supply. the cdc says the state will get 594,000 doses next week. that's an increase of about 30,000. compared to this week. we always hoped for more. we continue to work with the federal administration that push push for more, but that will be one of our biggest challenge is, health officials say that the positive news is that new cases a new case numbers are declining statewide to their lowest level since november. they could be cut in half in another month, and intensive care capacity is also rebounded. california nurses
are celebrating after the state agreed to end emergency waivers to hospitals and nursing homes. those waivers allowed facilities to require nurses to care for more patients than state law allows at any one time. the nurses objected after hundreds of nursing homes and more than 100 hospitals received the waivers. the program began in december when surge in cases of covid-19 led to a severe nursing shortage throughout the state. tonight. the city of oakland became the first in the bay area to mandate hazard pay for many grocery store workers. the vote was unanimous, and it means an extra $5 per hour during the pandemic. ktvu is as a smith is here now, and azenith smith idea is gaining momentum with more cities, possibly following suit. yes frank. in fact, tonight, san jose city leaders are debating on this very issue. san francisco and berkeley have voiced support leaders in oakland called it a no brainer.
as grocery where cruz is full clerks. we didn't sign up for at risk job. timur korean is a food clerk for safely in oakland for 29 years. the 51 year old mother is now entitled to an extra $5 per hour. thanks to a city ordinance she called long overdue. we are on the front lines and this is this is at risk this pandemic and right now it's going to another level. and we're not slowing down. city leaders past the emergency ordinance tuesday, joining other cities that have considered similar legislation. los angeles past it 15 to 0 in seattle. it was passed unanimously, councilwoman nikki fortunata bass introduced the ordinance calling their line of work dangerous getting paid on average $18 an hour. you know they're working indoors with large numbers of people, and this is also a situation where they are among the lower paid service sector workers yet the national retail chains are making enormous profits during
covid healthcare workers air treating exposed. patients that come in, but the grocery clerk see 2 to 300. some of them could see two or 300 customers. today, the ordinance effects grocery stores that employ 500 or more workers. nationally stores like car dennis markets, lucky's safeways sprouts, trader joe's and whole foods and estimated 2000 grocery workers and oakland would be included. we think these types of ordinances are illegal. so we think there is constitutional issues, especially when you're singling out one particular industry. the california grocers association plans to fight the ordinance. the association says the mandate amounts to a 28% increase in labor costs and could trickle down to the consumer. the association estimates an extra $400 a year for groceries for a family of four shoppers. we spoke to say they'd be willing to pay more. i think that these companies should maybe. into their
profits a little bit more, instead of passing them to consumers. i get to work at home. you know, they don't know. i appreciate it. and this is not entirely new, lucky has been providing hazard pay to their employees during the pandemic, and trader joe's announced it plans to pay employees $4 an hour more. this ordinance is in effect until the city of oakland reaches the least restrictive yellow tear, frank so as that i think you may have just answered this. but does this go into effect immediately, despite the fact that the grocery association is going to fight it? yes, it does. go into effect immediately, according to the city council member i spoke to and a zay mentioned in the story. the grocer's association does plan to fight it legally, and they did so in long beach, and so we'll just have to wait and see azenith smith life force tonight as nothing qanon democrats in congress began to

something that we agree on. ah group of 10 republicans met with president biden on monday night to talk about their proposal. ah, bill one third the size of the president's the white house says president biden believes more way more is needed the risk here, as he has said many times is not going to too big. it is going to small, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell says president biden and democrats have chosen a partisan path by moving forward with reconciliation. now, he says, his members will figure out what amendments they want to offer. i think our 10 members laid out a proposal. that could have gotten broad bipartisan support. but they are in the majority in the house and senate, and, uh, life is a serious the choices and they chosen. the american rescue plan won't necessarily pass, as is both parties will have the chance to offer amendments before a vote. the white house hopes that is where there will be some bipartisanship. in washington. lauren blanchard, fox news on

the weather out there. we've got a pretty nice evening was a pretty nice day today. temperatures got into the fifties. we did have a few sprinkles this morning after last night's rain, which was fairly significant. i mean some areas in the marin county watershed up in mount mount mount tam. over two inches of rain, so it was pretty significant stuff. ondas showers have ended here. but in the lake tahoe area, we're still seeing snow showers and we're also getting a winter storm warning that's going to stay in effect through tomorrow as the second system comes in now, this second system not as robust. this is it right here and you look at you guys, not much going on, right? this system drops in tomorrow. the main impact will be snow in the mountains. maybe a few sprinkles around here but not a game changer. the thing you're going to notice cooler daytime highs, so temperature is just in the fifties, mid fifties upper fifties at best, so we come back. we'll look specifically at the five day forecast in the computer model for the rest of the week. the
element of school district thank you, bill. the alameda school district is set to begin testing its employees for coronavirus tomorrow. it's part of a plan to eventually test all students, faculty and staff a total of nearly 11 1000 people. last month, trustees approved a contract with hayward company to provide nasal swab tests. the district will begin student test before in person classes resume next month. regular testing will continue either weekly or biweekly dependent on case rates, the state says in person instruction can now resume its schools in four bay area counties. this after their rate of new coronavirus cases fell below the state's threshold for real. in schools. those counties are marin, san francisco, san matteo and santa clara. the state guidance is for kindergarten through sixth grades if they were open before the stay at home order was issued back in december, but schools with seven through 12th
grades that have not yet reopened must wait for their county to exit the purple tear. governor newsome's popularity seems to be waning, waning as support grows for a recall effort, a new poll by uc berkeley institute of governmental studies found that only 46% of the 10,000 californians surveyed approve of the governor's performance. 48% disapprove. 6% had no opinion that is down from a survey conducted back in september, which put the governor's approval rating at 64% with 36% disapproving. coming up some high profile committee assignments for california's newest senator, the influence that alex padilla will have on major policies affecting california and president biden signs another syriza of executive orders today aimed at immigration policy will take a closer look at what exactly the three orders will do.
administration's immigration priorities. they include a review of many of his predecessor's policies are political reporter greg lee, with the additional actions taken and the new task force that's been set up. this about how america is safer, stronger, more prosperous when we have a fair, orderly and you main legal immigration system with his newly confirmed dhs secretary by his side, president biden sign another series of executive orders this time focused on rolling back the previous administration's immigration policies were gonna work done do the moral and national shame of the previous administration that literally not figuratively rip children from the arms of their families. the first order creates a task force. to reunite families separated at the mexican border under trump's zero tolerance policy. it's estimated about 600 children are still separated from their parents. so we're trying to repair the damage and
the horrific actions of the prior administration by trying to do everything we can to reunite these kids with their families. the second order is said to address the root causes of migration and review. the so called remain in mexico policy, which led to asylum seekers waiting in mexico for court appearances. third order direct to review the legal immigration system, including the public charge rule, which makes it harder for immigrants to get green cards. if they use government benefits. we want to act swiftly. we want to act promptly but we also need to make sure we're doing that through a strategic policy process the administration defended reviewing, rather than ending some trump policies immediately asking for more time bindings. immigration overhaul faces conservative challenges in court and on capitol hill. another executive order that really will have a profound effect on new mexico, a border state. it's unbelievable that we would actually compromise the safety and health and it really the national security of our nation by virtue of these executive orders. fighting is also facing

county board of supervisors has unanimously approved an emergency declaration. they did so today for damage caused by heavy rain and flooding. last week. the public works department doesn't have an exact dollar figure for the storm damage, but it's estimated to be in the millions of dollars. the board declared a disaster in order to get emergency funding from the state and federal governments to help pay for the repairs. i ain't on our own local puns. that'd be very difficult to train repair these roads, and so this would make us eligible for state and federal grants to help communities like ours. back in 2017, the county applied for similar state and federal grants to repair $140 million in storm damage. public works director says they should have that work completed. by the end of the year. already taking a look at the outside san francisco beautiful night kind of mild out there. we got some rain yesterday that front
stalled out about this time yesterday and dropped over a half inch to an inch of rain in some places, not so much a san jose. they got barely anything but marin county i mentioned got over a couple inches of rain, so turned out to be a pretty good little weather system still way behind where we need to be in rainfall. we've got this system here. it's working, see the trajectory how it's working its way down the coast like this kind of coming straight down from the gulf, so that comes in the main impact on that system for us is going to be just a kind of a mild the cool day with i think maybe a sprinkle. i'll show you the model coming up. we mention that winter storm warning in the mountains that stays in effect through tomorrow. it's snowing up there now in many places, but most of that winter storm running, i think has to do with what's coming because that system that i pointed out from the north. it's coming down. that one's going to be cold and it will bring snow colder systems. don't put a lot of hold a lot of moisture. so with that in mind, we're not expecting a ton. maybe a foot of snow, but not if we get a sprinkle or something. it wouldn't be a lot so there's the system increasing clouds tomorrow.
slight slight chance of a shower. nothing to change of plans over and then we go drive. we could dry right through the weekend. pretty much. this is the model and i'll show you how to show you how it works out. so here's tomorrow or tonight, and then you'll see that system coming from a peer and there's the green. there's the rain and then around. that's the morning, right? and then you see it start to thicken up as the day goes on. so about three o'clock that's our best chance for a sprinkle what we're really going to see a lot of clouds. and we're going to see temperatures on the cool side, not in the sixties, but in all in the fifties, pretty much exclusively with most temperatures in the mid fifties. that's a cool system. i mean, maybe a sprinkle. that'd be great. but as i said, cold, there's a whole lot of water, so even if it does direct hit, i wouldn't expect much of an accumulation. so forecast highs tomorrow when you see a lot of fifties. as i said, low fifties mid fifties, some areas may be cooler than that, so the increasing clouds starts off kind of nice clouds increase. slight slight chance for sprinkled don't change plans
and then we get into. thursday friday, saturday and sunday and temperatures warm up. you'll see us back into the sixties. so that system tomorrow is kind of our last last brush with opportunity for showers for awhile that language models are pretty dry, are looking pretty drive for the next few days or next 45 or six or seven days. so that's the plan, you guys soko tomorrow. that clouds increasing all day it's going to cooler than typical money to jacket all day, maybe a sprinkle, and then after that, we warm up, i'll see you back here at 11, all right. we'll see then, bill. thank you. ah familiar faces now on the front of the new weegee's cereal box. the general mills brand celebrating athlete activist tommie smith. you may recall smith making history when he raised his fist in protest of racial inequality in 1968 during the olympic games. smith was a world champion runner who. tended san jose state university, his limited edition wheaties box will be sold online, only sales will go to

geico motorcycle. vote. room. to you could say quite literally. the warriors did not show up large against the boston celtics tonight. james wiseman, their young center seven footer out with a sprained wrist and come on loony, sprained his a cold. the other center early on in this game, so they just didn't have the size of the muscle to correctly match up with the boston celtics, although they make a game of it, wiseman is gonna watch, probably for a couple weeks. and here's an example. no one discussed this inside jason tatum knife into the hoop on abated for busting me in 27 points, nine rebounds.
here's the play where loony rolls his ankle is left. one did not return and we'll have to wait to see until probably tomorrow or so. you see how serious that is onto the third period. celtics up five boston turnover stuff? curry don't look for one piscano anderson, he had said. steam boys tonight you get the foul there too is you see the replay did a good job hustling, but just not enough girth in the middle for the warriors. that center late third from the city limits kirby, one of his seven threes. 83 ali at 38 points. 11 rebounds, eight assists. fourth quarter. boston builds a 10 point lead former cal bear jalen brown and something to do with that. on the loose 18 points and 10 rebounds and curry does all he can to try and bring him back. that's this move and physics. oh man, that is just beautiful, plus the foul, but it's not enough. 1 11
+107 the final and here's your key step. the warriors were outrebounded by boston. 51 36. the warriors with only 11 turnovers. tonight, it's still the big advantage on the board. for boston kind of looked like in college basketball. the stanford cardinal unfamiliar with their own home, florid maples. and who can blame them? here we are way into the season and this was their first game. at home. the first true home game, all the covid related problems for stanford and that they let most of the way against usc second half. cardinal up one coach and miss long past will go to stanford, oscar to silva. easy, does it? they still say, guys, cherry picking. wait, that's that sure looked like it now inside a minute. usc though up to taj, evey will get the tough turnaround jumper. usc winds at 72 60. six. there are 14 and
three trojans looking good. stamford falls to 10 and seven now, i guess in keeping with the festive mood of the super bowl, it's anything goes down in florida. there is no limit. to the size of any athletic endeavor played outside down there, and that suits the nfl quite well, i think because they made it official today they announced that 25,000 live fans will be able to watch the super bowl on sunday in person, joined by 30,000 cardboard cutout. so it's gonna look packed. at least it's all about aesthetics in the nfl, right? it'll be the largest outdoor sporting event since the pandemic started and cab in the name of patrick mahomes. he doesn't care about all that stuff. he's just getting ready for the game, trying to be a back to back winner in the super bowl. for me. i'm trying to find a way to repeat, find a
way to win a second championship on and find a way to do whatever i can to win with this team. you don't get these opportunities every single year in the nfl to be in the super bowl on the b and b in these games, and so you don't want to look back and have regrets about how you played and how you went about the week of preparing to go out there and play your best football. if here from the bay area, you remember where you were one year ago today, if you don't here's joe fonzi to remind you with this day in sports. it all seemed within reach just. last year on this day, with nine minutes to play, the 49ers still had the ball and a 10 point lead in super bowl 54. it all went south. after that, pat mahomes, 3rd and 15 password for 44 yards to tyree kill. four plays later, the chiefs were in the end zone. kansas city scored 21
unanswered points and left miami with a 31 to 20 win. that's this day in sports, february 2nd. ground hog day. i'm joe fonzi. yes it is. ground hog day. let us check this out. we have in the past recent past is a matter of fact. shown you dogs on skateboards, but i think this guy takes the cake right here. he's a daredevil the towers? yeah not only that he's dressed in bib overalls, so i gotta give him credit for that. look for that dog, and i love this right here. this is a little. racer cruise happens to be my grandson and the check him out of the running away. clark how old is it south, three years old. adorable yeah. yeah but you know what was in the neighborhood? i say, where's your helmet? kid? come on. yes right. my party pooper. drives
