still taking questions from reporters, and the governor is telling us that he doesn't want to have to wait for counties to fully reopen before they send students back to school. so that means some of these school districts within counties there in the most restrictive tier of the state's re opening system can have access to this more than $6 million package to help schools reopen now. first school districts within counties in the purple tears. they can access the money if they create a plan to send back. students tk to second grade back to the in person instruction model for students or counties are in the red tear district's i should say they'll need a plan for all elementary school students to return and one grade in middle and high school for them to get access to that funding as well. the governor says those plans do not need to be approved by local teachers unions. he did break down what exactly that $6.6 million will help do. $2 billion specifically for grants to help with in person instruction. those air grants
could provide more ppe, though we have set aside three months of free ppe for ventilation for spacing for issues related to health and safety. 4.6 billion of the 6.6 to deal with reimagining the school year. giving district's flexibility looking at school days looking at intervention, deeper intervention to address. kids wellness. district's will have until the end of the month to achieve those goals to have access to that funding. teachers will not be required to be vaccinated under this agreement, but despite that the governor is still pushing for those vaccinations. starting today, the state will reserve. 10% of its vaccine supply to education workers every week, he says. at minimum 75,000 vaccines will be set aside for teachers this week. on thursday and friday. california's two fema run vaccination sites. one is an oakland they will be
deemed educator vaccination days i did reach out to the california teachers association for reaction to this announcement in any comments, and i'd still not heard back. reporting live on james torres, ktvu fox two news. all right, james. thank you for that. so my school students up in the nevada unified school district are back in class today for in person instruction. teachers greeted the students with balloons this morning as they arrived at nevada high school, san marin and marin oaks. high schools are also open today. now the marin county is in the red tear. ninth and 10th graders are allowed to return to the classroom with a hybrid schedule. 11th and 12th graders will return next monday. there are new safety protocols in place that just happen air filters and classrooms. plexiglass dividers on each desk, and the students are seated at least 6 ft. apart these students have given up so much they've sacrificed so much over the last year. you know, we've almost been off campus for a year. we need to get them back. we need to get them back with their peers. but we can
only do that if we could do that safely. so that's what it is. that we're balancing is how can we safely get our students back onto campus so that they can get the social interactions and have those life experiences that they need? but make sure that we're doing it safely? the school superintendent also said more than 25% of the teachers in the district have been vaccinated. 7th and 8th graders in the district returned to campus and hybrid model last month, the johnson and johnson covid-19 vaccine is now being shipped all across the country. ktvu sally rasmus joins us live this afternoon with more on this third coronavirus vaccine in wine medical officials really say now that we have options here, you shouldn't really be picky about which vaccine you're getting. that's right, mike. there are now three options. for a covid-19 vaccine. johnson and johnson being the latest one that's being shipped out this week, and no matter which one you get, they will all keep you out of the hospital. and more importantly, they will all keep you alive. hundreds of thousands of vials of vital vaccine packed up and ready to
ship from this warehouse in kentucky as many as four million doses of the johnson and johnson vaccine will be available this week. 20 million by the end of the month. i think people need to get vaccinated as quickly and as expeditiously as possible. if i would go to a place where they had j and j i would have no hesitancy whatsoever to take it. according to the results of their trials. the j and j shot is 75% effective at preventing covid. the madonna and fizer are about 95% but there's a reason for that difference. the johnson and johnson vaccine trials happened during the fall and winter surge. covid was much more widespread than in the summer, so it was tested under a tougher set of circumstances gingerly had to contend with the various where is when modern in fizer did their studies. they're either work those variants around or if they were, there were there were very uncommon. scientists were able to confirm the j and j vaccine provides protection against the south african variant and others of the people in their trials. who did get covid even after getting their shots. none had to be hospitalized, and no one died.
one big cake old messages. that 100% of people are protected against death in 100% of people are protected against hospital rights being hospitalized with all three vaccines the johnson and johnson vaccine requires only a single dose. it does not have to be stored in sub freezing temperatures. california will receive 385,000 doses of it this week. we don't know how many of those johnson and johnson vaccine doses will be going to each county in the bay area. yet however, we do know san francisco and napa counties say they plan to start using their vaccine doses this week. reporting live allie rasmus ktvu. box two news, 385,000 just in the first week, it's a big number. right alley. thank you. today, california's vaccine distribution system starts moving to a single system. up until now in nearly every county had its own eligibility requirements, and they offered different from what the state had to say. now blue shield of california's been hired by the state to

strike in syria. this is after some republican and democratic lawmakers have expressed concern about escalating tensions in the middle east. the pentagon says the air strike last week destroyed nine buildings used by iranian backed militia groups to move and store weapons. i think the iranians are always going to test a new regime. and when the iranian proxies are putting our troops in iraq in harm's way, there needs to be punitive actions taken. and i think the biden missile launch was appropriate push back and we haven't been briefed yet on we have not authorized war in in syria our ability to engage in constitutional actions that's not diminished. when the party in power is ours, the pentagon says the air strike was retaliation for a rocket attack last month in iraq that killed a civilian contractor and injured a u. s service member and other coalition troops.
well, i don't think the month of march is starting us off like a lion. in any case, it's mild and sunny outside kyla, it is because i have some good news. i finally have some rain to show you in the forecast, and i'm very excited about that, because we need but having said that i got outside yesterday i went out to the coast. he was absolutely gorgeous. we're gonna have another beautiful day today. let's start with a live look outside. you could see here at the oakland estuary looking towards san francisco. it is just another stunner. we've got sunshine all the way from san francisco up to santa rosa down to the o san jose, where there's a few clouds, so i'm gonna tell you why there's a few class. you've got a kind of an interesting weather set up happening, but first we show you were pretty calm. wind wise, except for a little breeze going on there in nevada. we're about 10 mph in santa rosa. but everywhere else you know, we're less than 10 mph. so it's pretty nice. here's the interesting thing i was telling you about. so high pressure's been off the coast. but right now we've got a low pressure system that's been nudging downward and it's digging down and what is going to do is throw a few clouds our
way, but it's not going to bring us any precipitation and you could see those clouds. we're kind of sitting offshore. right now. bigger picture is to bring a little rain to southern california, and i'll show you that in just a bit, but for us just makes it a little breezy. if the coast is they get a bit of an onshore flow, but mostly, you know, pretty warm. sunny across the bay. if you look at these temperatures were still above average san francisco expecting 64 66 in santa rosa, check out livermore 69 for you. 69 for hit san jose. so yeah, we're still staying warm, but we will see those clouds increase a little bit tonight. now what that does is bump those lows up a degree or two, and that means something when you're one of the folks in the thirties, right, so 45% francisco tonight, 37% of rosa. we could still see a little patchy frost in spots to get into the thirties, but be a little more comfortable tonight. okay this is the big news that i want to show you. so first of all, let's talk about that low that's off the coast right now. watch how that just kind of spins. you see that counterclockwise circulation in it. draw a little moisture into southern california. that is wednesday afternoon. but for us friday

his advisers, then a joint investigation with the attorney general. but james refused to accept those proposals. and cuomo ultimately relented. anything like that, if someone purposely tried to use their power to force a woman to have sex with him, of course, that someone who should no longer be in public service in the statement, cuomo also denied allegations of unwanted kissing and touching by a different aid. there are no signs he's planning to step down, but he's quickly losing support among democrats, the proper response. for any of these kinds of allegations of reprehensible, inexcusable behavior is to listen to the mainly women who come forward over the weekend, white house press secretary jen psaki said. president biden also supports the independent investigation into cuomo in new york. brian yannis ktvu fox two news. the deadly storm that hit texas and left millions of people without power and in some cases without water may have led also to another

more than 100 people advocating for the reopening of oakland schools filled the grass field at astro parked near lake merritt. the group consisted of parents, students, educators, even a few health care workers. one man identifying himself as a physician and parent shared his frustration. i'm feeling fed up with inaction with stalling with private schools and wealthy public school district's opening up while our public schools remain closed. yeah, i'm feeling fed up with my child getting an inferior education. that frustration is echoed by one of the rally's organizers with o u. s d parents for transparency and save re opening. we're watching what's happening in communities around us. kids are back in school, two miles five miles 10 miles away, and our kids still are out of their classrooms. organizer's air trying to garner more support, hoping it motivates the school district and union to negotiate a deal to resolve safety concerns. this is bigger than politics.
in fact, this is about education mayor libby shaft who made an appearance hinted their goal may soon be realized. we're so close, the negotiating sides are very close to an agreement. many here argue science supports their desire to reopen schools and a ucsf pediatrician and epidemiologist cited what many studies have concluded. student to student transmission and, in particular student to teacher transmission are extremely rare, not present at this rally and asthmatic oakland middle school teacher with a master's in online education, rebecca revco says any notion that teachers don't want to return to classrooms is untrue, adding there simply awaiting a detailed plan that insurers everyone's safety. if anybody is loving, teaching online, it would be me. but i don't you know, i really would rather be in the classroom with my students. the school board has issued a letter expressing

experts say the biden administration may not meet its goal of reopening most u. s schools by the month of may. they say the administration's revised reopening guidelines could keep many schools closed until the fall, possibly even longer. johnson and johnson covid vaccine is being distributed nationwide. as we've reported for you today, as jonathan siri explains, health experts are urging americans really, to get any of the three available. covid vaccines. johnson and johnson's coronavirus vaccine will start shipping out today. the cdc green lighting the formula on sunday for people 18 and older, clearing the way for distribution but initial supplies of the vaccine will be limited. nearly four million doses are expected to ship out this week with about one $100 million is expected by the end of june, the drugmaker ceo says americans should start receiving doses within the next day or two. i really can't think of another time in our history where we've been able to ramp up with this kind of
pace, and we say 100 million doses by june, that means 100 million vaccinations patients that will have been treated johnson and johnson's vaccine does not need to be kept frozen and requires only one shot. it's less effective in preventing moderate to severe covid-19 cases than the fizer or madonna vaccines, but health experts warn against directly comparing the three saying j and j's formula was tested at a different time with more contagious variants. this has been proven to be very safe, and it decreases hospitalization and death by 100. the third covid-19 vaccine comes at a crucial time, the cdc says a downward trend of new infections may be stalling, raising concerns. more troubling variants are on the rise. public health officials are urging people to get which ever vaccine is available to them. the more people vaccine, the more safe we're all going to be especially of community transmission is low, and the fourth vaccine could be on the way. astrazeneca expects us
clinical trial results in the coming weeks in atlanta, jonathan serrie ktvu fox. two news, just about an hour ago, governor newsome that seven announced at seven more counties in california will be moving from that purple tear to the red deer sometime tomorrow. the governor did not specifically say which counties but three of them could be right here in the bay area. san francisco, santa clara county and napa county are all expected to meet the state's requirements to move out of that most restrictive purple tear. when changes are announced tomorrow, the red deer does allow for indoor dining and permits. gyms and movie theaters to operate at a reduced capacity court is back in session and contra costa county after jury trials were paused. all because of the pandemic. there is now a big backlog of court cases similar to the situation. in other bay area counties. nearly 400 people are currently waiting for their day in court in santa clara county alone, do the courthouse closures in the south bay over the past year, so if there are 400 defendants
waiting to go to trial. were charged criminally their presumed to be innocent. um there aren't enough courtrooms. there aren't enough. judges aren't enough staff for jurors to really get these cases to trial. it will likely take months, maybe years for some bay area trials to get underway. somewhere concerned, many people may get impatient and actually decided tow settle their cases out of court, even if it's not in their best legal interest staying in the south bay. people were very happy to attend church services inside this past weekend, all we are doing here is praising the lord and many people need tol come together and do exactly that, especially during co covid. we need hope. santa clara county had continued to ban indoor services despite state guidelines that allowed it to resume at limited capacity. but last week, the u. s supreme court ruled the county must
allow churches to resume indoor services at 25% capacity, which are the same restrictions applied to stores and other indoor businesses. so you would hope that this being america that the supreme court would support the law of the land, which is the constitution, so there was always that hope, and so it's good to see that finally coming down and we could actually practice it today. santa clara county emphasizes indoor gatherings are still high risk. health officers are urging churches to follow public safety recommendations. the coronavirus pandemic, maybe costing high school athletes thousands of dollars in college scholarships. sonoma delos santos has more on that later. you mean the community like ours that that's a lot of times their way to get to college. enrique you gotta block inside. okay it's typical high school football coach mike moon's main goal is to get his players into college. but getting athletic scholarships is the challenge during the pandemic since the lockdown last march, all high
school games were canceled in california. that means no proof of performance for aspiring athletes. 46 47 states that plate of have films. obviously the colleges have gone to those kids. they have to feel that recruiting class, and this year they feel the recruiting class with kids outside of california stick and go. yeah it's an issue up and down the coast. we tried to do things like last month, we even held a combine down at city college for kids so they could at least get some highlights. but you know, i think that's been a disadvantage for all the california student athletes. bishop diego football coach tim crawford says six players were able to sign two smaller schools. some of the kids have lost opportunities that they otherwise would have gotten. so you know, i guess that's one of the reasons some kids went out of state to play. both programs. expect more scholarships in a normal season. everybody in in the football world in all 50 states knows that the california kids have been overlooked. there's been a couple college is not not to name any names that that normally recruit a lot of california kids, and you checked the recruiting class for the cost of 2021. there was
zero california kids on the recruiting classes, and it could have a longer lasting impact as ncaa extended current college athlete eligibility by a year. now, these colleges that normally maybe handout 20 scholarship. find a lot less this year. they just did not have as many scholarships because the seniors are opting in for another year, but there is light at the end of the tunnel you sports can resume when a california county hits a case rate of 14 per 100,000, which could happen soon in santa barbara and ventura counties. if all goes as planned, our first scrimmage could be saturday, march 13th. and our first game could be march 19th. still to come. this noontime p. jeannie bills, possibly on the rise just how much the rate is expected to go up and the reason behind it and just a fabulous monday afternoon across much of the bay area's would give you a live picture there. if the golden gate bridge i know we need the rain. in fact, we're gonna check in with kyla grogan because she's talking about a
only nature's bounty does. new immune twenty-four hour plus has longer lasting vitamin c. plus, herbal and other immune superstars. only from nature's bounty. place just this past weekend they have been on saturday night. another one. also early yesterday morning at three different locations and three people were arrested during the side shows we're having guns at feeling, avenue and seventh street, at least 100 people blocked intersections as vehicles were spinning in circles. one person was arrested. drink reckless

seeing less demand for coronavirus testing. us testing hit a peak on january 15th since then. the average number of daily tests has dropped more than 28% new covid related cases, hospitalizations and deaths are all down. california is administering about 200,000 coronavirus tests a day the state's test positivity rate has also dropped to 2.7. 100 people in san francisco received the vaccine for covid-19 over the weekend without an appointment. many of them lined up outside the south southeast health center clinic in the city's bayview neighborhood yesterday as early as two hours before the doors open. san francisco health department statistics show people living in the bay view have been hit especially hard by the pandemic. we know that the more people who get vaccinated we know that's going to help prevent the spread of covid, and so we really need to focus on the communities that have the highest case raised

um you know, look, if you're in san jose, only 38% of normal 50% in oakland, 45. in san francisco in about 43% in santa rosa. so all of that is to say, and i know you hear me. say it a lot. we need the rain. so let's talk about this. we've got a little system off the coast right now. low pressure system that's going to spin a little bit of rain down to southern california on wednesday, so that will not really affect us except to cast a few clouds are way. but check out friday night into saturday. we have a system that's going to come in, and that will help. you know, break this dry pattern that we've been in and as you can see on monday, potential for perhaps a little more. we're still a little further out to be able to say that for sure. but it really looks like that pattern is going to break and we're going to see a little bit more rain, however, not today we are basking in the sunshine is you take a live? look there. the oakland estuary oakland sitting right now it's 64 degrees, but we're already at 69 fremont 68 san jose, so we're gonna see those above average temperatures today. no doubt about it as we zoom out. i mentioned we have that little low pressure system off. coast that is going to bring a little
bit of a breeze and onshore flow to the coast. you cool to keep them cool little bit in a few clouds probably show up there. as we go into the night, we'll see a few more clouds show up all across the bay, but still, you know that low pressure systems not really going to do much for us today. temperatures should be lovely. we're talking above average out of the coast about 58, but around the big mid to upper sixties and tonight because we have a few clouds out there temperatures a few degrees warmer. so about 45 in san francisco will see ah blow upper thirties in in the north bay and perhaps a little patchy frost. but other than that pretty nice night out there, and here's our extended forecast. so some nice days ahead, but we will look out for that rain coming in as we get into late friday night overnight into saturday's we'll start to see those clouds on friday that will pull our temperatures back a little bit as well. and then saturday morning looks the collapse of sunshine and clouds on sunday and then hopefully more rain on the other side, because i would love to see us catch up a little bit. castiel see how it goes. echoing that sentiment, kyla. thank you. about one in
