6:06 pm
are close by it's smoke can be seen in the town of paradise, which is about 45 minutes away, and the people of paradise for the people of paradise. the dixie fire is bringing back memories of the 20. 18 camp fire, which claimed more than 80 lives and essentially destroyed the town of paradise and neighboring towns as well. ash from the dixie fire is also following as far away as reno, which is about 100 miles to the east, now to the air quality around the bay area. here's a live look at our camera pointed toward mount diablo. the smoky skies vary depending on where you are around the bay area and northern california skies in the ta whole area are in the head. healthy category. the delta variant is serving up another round of problems for some bay area restaurants. a few restaurants have had to temporarily shut down after staff members contracted the virus. ktvu greg liggins joins us now he's live in hayward tonight, with more on the story, greg. yeah it is an
6:07 pm
industry that has struggled through the dark times of covid. but then they saw the light once things started to reopen, but now with the delta variant, well, they have problems once again. oakland's jack london square is an example of covid dining at its best temperate weather on a sunday afternoon to both enjoy and increase safety, but the delta variant has shown how fragile all this can be when a restaurant staffer contracts covid as pointed out by a restaurant tour and head of the golden gate restaurant association. the problem with that is it means you have to quarantine your staff, which then leads to some closures. oakland's ramen shop recently posted on its instagram page that it shut down for a few days of cleaning and testing after a staff member contracted covid nari in san francisco, a similar experience posting, they've had three breakthrough cases with staff and won't reopen until the 11th two examples of several. and delta could potentially be responsible for another restaurant issue. it drop off
6:08 pm
and pretty significantly and reservations and an increase of no shows. um in the past week and a half belcampo at jack london square says it's experienced the same here and the other causes are possible, the manager speculates on what's probable, probably the increase in cases of the delta string. there's also been a decline in indoor dining as more clients request to sit in the open air, something this teacher says she does purposefully not just for enjoyment, but because she's concerned about indoor dining. i don't dine out often, so this is pretty much a treat for me to go and dine out, and i like this area specifically because we are so space out from other patrons. and while these restaurants can enjoy business for now, it's a circumstance. dance that remains fragile as delta cases grow, threatening an industry that's already fought several battles in the ongoing war against covid. i'm
6:09 pm
hoping it, um, goes away. you know, people do the right thing. now there have also been some restaurants in downtown san francisco, planning to reopen after labor day i'm told those restaurants rely heavily on the business of office workers. but now with the delta variant out there well, some of those offices are delaying bringing those employees back. so restaurants are facing another challenge reporting live greg legans ktvu fox two news. all right, greg. thank you. piedmont unified school, too. circuit is joining other districts and requiring teachers and other staff to be vaccinated or undergo routine testing. the superintendent wrote to parents this week that the school district has asked all staff to submit a digital copy of their vaccine cards. those who decided not to get vaccinated or who can't for medical reasons will be tested for coronavirus twice a week.

6:17 pm
understand the argument around not wanting to wear masks because we're fatigued. it's without question, student safety and staff safety come first. last week, new jersey's democratic governor mandated masks be worn in his state schools. governor phil murphy says he knows the decision is not popular with most parents, but he insists the move was necessary. this is not an announcement that gives any of us or me personally, any pleasure. but as the school year approaches, and with the numbers rapidly increasing. it is the one that we need to make right now. florida's republican governor, taking a different approach, he issued an executive order allowing parents to decide if their kids should wear masks instead of local officials. but now the governor is facing lawsuits over his order. today, fellow republicans from the sunshine state are coming to his defense. americans are smart. will make good decisions for their families, and we can't go back to fear fear that kills

6:19 pm
enrollment for kindergarten. researchers say many parents either chose home schooling or kept their kids in in person. preschool question still remain such as if these kids returned to public kindergarten, will they create a class size shock? and if they don't return public schools could lose money. police in pino are asking the public for help finding a missing person, police say naevia griffin ran away from home in pinole yesterday. this is an older picture. she now has purple blue hair. she was last seen wearing a black shirt, blue jeans and croc shoes. novia also has brown eyes. she's five ft. four inches tall and about £150. anyone with information is asked to please call pinole police. august is national black business month and in oakland, the black international market place at lake merritt is going strong every weekend every saturday and sunday from 11 to 6 between 35 55 vendors are selling

6:21 pm
readings. these are the live sensors right now and you can see, really. the hot spots are right up in here to husband real nasty. they're going to get better tomorrow. the winds have generally been going the right way. and that's why we've had better. certainly much better air quality today i'm going to stop this down. bring it all the way back. so here's a smoke right? the blue is a little bit of smoke. but when you get into the red, you're really getting into some some bad air quality. this is the forecast. look where it goes. idaho wyoming, montana kind of work this way back around a little bit towards red block, but then it just kind of keeps going on out. so the flow right there on tuesday, we might see a little bit of smoke, especially in sacramento into the valley. but these fires are so big right? you saw the dixie fire. i mean, that's the second largest fire in state history, and it continues to grow. it's just a big big fire, and so any wind shifts we get are going to cause problems for us. so some of that smokes download, too, and so when the smoke gets down, low it, it can travel on different wind currents. and maybe maybe a different little weather pattern down the surface and a lot of the forecast is for that right for warming, and that's going to
6:22 pm
put us into a fire danger. certainly but not we're not expecting extreme heat. maybe by friday. we're looking at some upper nineties mid nineties but for the most part, the fog's going to stay at the coast, which is great for us. we're going to see temperatures around the bay in the seventies and eighties, and then it's the endless spots as typical will have the heat issues and then you can see that low, right? here it is right here. this guy is really one of the reasons that that smoke has kind of got blown out, but in idaho to in eastern oregon and washington and california, there's the fog coming across the bay. you can tell when it's squishing like that, right? like i always think of the play doh fun factory and if i didn't have one, but some kids did in there, you push the plato in and squeeze out. that's what's happening. the air is the highest pressing. it's squeezing between the gap right the coastal gap at the coast of the hills, and so it's getting formed into a kind of a long sausage kind of deal that just tells you that high pressures own in the place that just those those clues as cute as you can see in mongolia. that's what that is. it's gonna be warm inland, and it is. it's 91
6:23 pm
in brentwood right now, 94 or 84 out in walnut creek area forecast for tomorrow. fog doesn't get that far in line. it's going to be warmer tomorrow. it's not heatwave, but it's going to be warmer tomorrow. we're going to see temperatures going into the low nineties and our warmest spots me nice. it's just gonna be warrant, and that's the trend this whole week warmer each day, so forecast highs right there 77 in vallejo. pleasant around the bay or quality. good this is a good pattern for us for the air quality as we showed you the model and then the five day forecast, you see the temperatures kind of pop up there on friday that looks like the real hot day. those other numbers like the tuesday wednesday, thursday, those low nineties does that's pretty normal for this time of year, so none of this is out of hand and we'll be back here tonight at 10. we'll update the forecast for you guys. i like that plato analogy. yeah i know this individual brings back memories. it sure does. thanks, bill coming up after the break the a's go for their fourth straight win as they take on the rangers and brandon belt goes deep for the fourth time
