4:00 pm
got really excited. i was like nothing. i've been down from ktvu fox two news. this is the four masks were required. but for many students, this was the closest they felt too normal in over a year. welcome everyone to the four. i'm alex savage, and i'm heather holmes start of the new school year at oakland unified comes as the delta varying. it raises more uncertainty about the future of this ongoing pandemic joins us now live from the newsroom with more rob heather oakland is the largest various school district to reopen so far this fall, and education leaders vowed to keep the classrooms open. many students letting out from emerson elementary school in oakland monday afternoon, got a hug from their parents and gave them much anticipated. first day back good reviews. what? i saw that my bestie on the playground, i got really excited. was like jumping up
4:01 pm
and down. it was thunder and easier than normal. this was the first time in a year and a half that students receive full in person instruction, no hybrids, no cohorts, and no lessons over zoom. there were, however, masks panda torrey for everyone who steps inside of school. it wasn't actually that bad. but that that's just me. i don't like it. well the oakland unified school district is encouraging covid vaccines for those who are eligible. it's not mandatory teachers are required to undergo regular covid tests, even if they are vaccinated. still, some parents admitted to being apprehensive about sitting there. students off to school. i'm nervous, nervous. yeah, uh of all the news. i've been reading about the delta variant and i know their kids, and sometimes they're not careful enough. california superintendent of schools tony thurman tour did oakland elementary school with oakland mayor libby schaaf and district officials and even though there are many
4:02 pm
challenges facing us with the variant, this school district like many has taken into account the needs of our students and put all the safety measures in place. those measures include deep cleanings, air purifiers and all the rooms and asking parents to keep their children at home. if they're ill. i'm concerned. i want to know that they have a contingency planning. i'm feeling really good. i'm feeling really excited. i think our teachers and staff have done a great job getting ready. the school district reports about 850 students have opted for distance learning that's list in 2% of the school population. heather holmes a day filled with a lot of different emotions. rob roth reporting for us today. thanks rob students in the lafayette school district also went back to class today and tomorrow students in the san ramon valley school district returned to glass and then on thursday, students in the mount diablo unified school district go back the new school year in the san francis cisco and west contra costa school district
4:03 pm
start next monday and the next wednesday, august 18th, the san jose and fremont unified school districts will welcome students back in the classrooms. a surge of covid-19 infections is raising new concerns as millions of children head back to school all across the country. that surge also has the pentagon making plans to require members of the military get vaccinated against covid-19 foxes. jonathan serrie has more. 1/4 surge of covid-19 infection shows no sign of slowing down the us reporting a seven day average of 108,000 new infections on sunday up 36% from the week prior and while vaccination rates are increasing nationwide around 90 million eligible people have not gotten their shots. the pentagon will now require members of the u. s military to get their vaccine who made the request for the waiver by mid september. unless or until fda licensed. occurs before that time, at which point the secretary has the authority he
4:04 pm
needs upon fda licensure to issue to make whatever vaccine is then given that license mandatory. the surge of infections raises new concerns as millions of children head back to school officials across the country remains split on whether to mandate masks in the classroom. here in georgia, that decision is being left up to districts in school leaders while in california and illinois students will be required. wired to wear face coverings, some health experts say while masking is important exceptions should be made. we've got to individualize and think about a carve out that gives them and their parents the option did not wear the debate comes as a growing number of children are hospitalized with covid 19, some doctors argue states should go one step further and mandate vaccinations for eligible staff. we've got to get everybody vaccinated, and that means all of the adolescence. teachers and staff dr anthony fauci says vaccine mandates at the local level could help curb the spread of
4:05 pm
the coronavirus in atlanta. johnson siri fox news. all right, joining us now to talk more about the return to classrooms is dr peter chin hong infectious disease specialist at u. c. s f. dr chen hong, always a pleasure to have you on as you can. well imagine here among students, parents, educators, there's a lot of anxiety all across the board here about sending our children back into classrooms here in the middle of this delta surge that we're experiencing right now. how optimistic are you that that we can avoid? widespread outbreaks in our schools. i'm pretty optimistic that we wouldn't see widespread outbreaks. i do anticipate that there may be some cases where some students may be positive, but that will be from the community and what's happening from the data is that many of the kids that are coming in? you've been hearing about cases in florida, louisiana. arkansas have been from households where the parents or the adults are not vaccinated. so of course, as
4:06 pm
you get more in the community, it's spilling over into also, but the school is a very controlled environment very different. for example, from going to, uh you know, having your kid go to mall, for example, that's much less. unregulated yeah. and speaking of the regulations and the protocols that are being put in place. obviously it does vary from district to district, but but we know that mask wearing at least here in the bay area is going to be an essential component of trying to keep our kids safe as they returned to classrooms. what are some of the other important steps that we need to be taking? you think in classrooms and in these schools to make sure that students are safe? well after top 10 things the first nine is to vaccinate all the adults around the kids. if the kid is between 12 and 19, of course, they're eligible for vaccines as well so they can get vaccinated, and that's probably the most powerful things. yeah, again. the first nine things and then number 10 would be wearing the mask. uh other, uh, intervention would be ventilation. you, that
4:07 pm
will be great, of course distance. distance between deaths, but of course, these are just a menu of options. but by far the most powerful, it's a form that bodyguard of immunity around the kids, which is vaccination. some districts like san jose are going to require all educators and staff members be fully vaccinated if they want to return and be a part of in classroom learning. other districts are not doing that oakland among them here. do you think kids should be returning to classrooms full time in person without all of the teachers and staff members being fully vaccinated? you know, in my personal opinion, i would love schools open. uh you know, while addressing some of these issues out in the bay thea teacher despite notin a mandate mandate around it is in all areas is going to be very high. given our high vaccination rates in
4:08 pm
general, i'll be much more worried if, for example, my child were kid, and you know some of the southern states where the community vaccination rates are not high, but yes, in general, i think it would be a great idea. if all the adults the kids are coming into contact with are vaccinated. all right? how about the issue of testing in and around the school communities? you know, i know we've reported. i know you're aware that down in l, a unified a massive school district. they're going to be requiring weekly testing for students. and for staff members as well as those campuses. testing is going to be offered by a number of districts here. what would be your recommendation to parents to district officials in terms of how often everyone should be tested in the school environment? i think i think about testing as just one of the other menu of items that we can have you have a menu of things in your tool kit, ventilation that's facing testing. the way the cdc has put it, which i agree with is that you can choose sit and
4:09 pm
things beyond the two basics. fox any adults and eligible folks mass. then you can choose about the others. testing is one of these strategies, but i wouldn't necessarily put all of my eggs in that one basket. alright let's talk big picture here because, as you know, nationwide, we are seeing an alarming increase in the number of children who are getting really sick with covid 19 in many cases winding up in the hospital. how how much more of a toll is the delta vary it taking on kids? i mean, throughout this pandemic, you and i have talked a lot about the fact that that kids you have not seemed to have gotten as sick and have transmitted the virus as much as adults have. but how is the delta variant taking a different toll on children now who are for the most part unvaccinated? i think alex is a function of again. the. increased community transmission in the households if household members unvaccinated the kid will likely get into the parents or the family members have it over,
4:10 pm
although it's still a small proportion of. overall hospitalization. see a kid does get covid. one out of 100 would be hospitalize. and if and then even if you look at deaths there, 0.1% of the cases that we have, which is a rare case to begin with so again, even though there are more cases in states where there's more transmissions, at least in the bay area. uh you know we're holding our own. it's not very highly common. at the end of the day. we don't want to know the answer if delta mix kids sicker because we don't want we want to just vaccinate everyone. the adults that is, we don't get to ask that and answer that question one of the keys here and i'll let you go here and we'll wrap up shortly. but one of the keys here is trying to get those those under 12 children vaccinated lot more safer. what is your latest sense of how long it's going to be until a vaccine is
4:11 pm
approved for kids under the age of 12? so the latest word on the street is that the timeline has moved up, which is a great thing. so we're looking at the end of september early october for pfizer, and then maybe before, uh, christmas holidays for moderna. okay, we will leave it right there. thank you. so much for coming on today to talk about the return to in person learning here for students in the bay area and beyond, dr peter chin hong from ucsf. always a pleasure. thank you. thanks so much, alex, take care. well after more than a year, canada has reopened its border to american visitors. this is what it looked like now earlier today at the border crossing in washington state, where the weight as you can see was a lot longer than it was before the pandemic. canada has implemented new health measures for all visitors, including proof of vaccination, and everyone needs to have a negative covid-19 test. many people say there are eager to be reunited with relatives in the country. soon as we heard
4:12 pm
the border was opening. we planned it immediately. we haven't seen him in two years, so it's there just outside of montreal. we're happy. we're anxious, uh, will be much happier when we get on the other side. um americans flying into canada will have to submit information, including negative test results before boarding a plane at u. s airports. the u. s canada border has been closed to non essential travel since march of 2020 to try to slow the spread of the coronavirus. and starting today in france. vaccination passports are required for those who are hoping to travel or eat out. it's all part of the government's plan to encourage more people to get their covid vaccines. those who travel on trains will now have to show a special q r. to prove that they've been vaccinated or that they recently tested negative for the virus, restaurants and cafes have the same requirement. people without the past can 7135. the measure also applies to

4:32 pm
area restaurants. some owners say they are seeing some of their workers get infected with the coronavirus, forcing the entire staff to quarantine. oakland's ramen shop recently posted on its instagram page that it shut down for a few days after a staff member contracted covid, and it was a similar experience at nari in san francisco after three fully vaccinated workers came down with the virus concerns about the delta. syrians are also causing some customers to change their mind about dining out it drop off and pretty significantly and reservations and an increase of no shows. um in the past week and a half, and there has also been a decline an indoor dining as more clients request to sit in the open air. joining me now to talk about this new challenge is david nay felt f k fico in san francisco and chef always nice to see you. the delta varying as we know has really delivered. another setback to the restaurant industry. how are you, managing? well uh,
4:33 pm
first of all heaven thanks for having me and, um you know, i think this is just one of those situations that most people in our industry have just started to recognize is going to be ongoing, right? we don't have any of the answers and any answers that we seem to have seemed to be finite because things seem to be dynamic and changing. so that being said, i think what this does put a fine point on is the fact that the united states government really needs to refill the restaurant revitalization fund, and that is the only way that we're going to take this industry from where we're at now and get it across. whatever amount of kind of hurdles we're going to have to get through to get to the other side of this. yes, talk a little bit about what type of blow a two week closure is to a restaurant from, you know, lost sales wages product. it is not even easy to overcome that loss. right. well listen, i'll tell you there's only so many of those that you can take and many restaurants have already dipped into whatever
4:34 pm
savings they may have had. they've taken on debt they've taken on all sorts of different challenges, and the fact is some of these folks are just deciding to close permanently because they're not able to continue with the yo yo effect. now that being said, i think it's just important to recognize that a lot of these restaurants are living based on cash. that's incoming. today they're paying bills. for tomorrow. so the downstream effect of this is not just the restaurant. you're going to your we're talking about purveyors. we're talking about farmers. we're talking about fishermen, and we're also talking about, you know anything as big as a delivery company, which brings linen pg and e. all of these different people who are employing other, um, you know, employees throughout. multiple different industries. there's a downstream effects, so it really behooves our government to save the restaurant industry now, so, chef what are you doing differently if anything, given the emergence of the delta variant? so first thing
4:35 pm
that we do at our restaurants. we always like to consult our team because i think it would be disingenuous to say that my business partner, matt and i, um are in any way health experts or no, really anything. besides what we've learned over the past 17 months. so we try to do a lot of check ins with our staff and see how people are feeling and what they think the right course of action is about a week and a half ago or two weeks ago, our staff, you know, relate to us that they felt more comfortable kind of instating a mask mandate for employees again, and we did that. and we had adhered to that, you know, within our four walls that being said, i think you know what we're doing different. i think you know, i hesitate to say we're doing anything different than what everybody else is doing. we're trying our best were messaging to our team that any time they feel even slightly, um, you know, under the weather, you know that they stay home and that we compensate them for
4:36 pm
that, and we try and make the best of all bad decisions, right? you know in each moment, but at the end of the day, i don't want to in any way say that. what's happening to others isn't going to happen to us tomorrow. this is a lot of this is luck of the draw, and we all just need to be vigilant. we need to work hard and there needs to be a level of humility that we don't all have the answers. and chef. what about the future of indoor dining? do you think that a number of restaurants will in fact, put an end to it, at least in the short term? you know, i hesitate to give an answer to that, because everything inside of my being says that i really hope not. i think that the blow that's been dealt to our industry, especially here in the bay area has been so catastrophic restaurants are really thing and will continue to reel over the detrimental cause of. you know, from the business perspective of the shutdowns right now, from a health perspective, we're all going to comply and we're going to do whatever the city and
4:37 pm
state mandates us to do. but that once again just brings me back to my original point. whatever ends up happening, the united states government needs to refill the rich restaurant revitalization fund. and if anybody's listening, i implore you to call congress right now and let them know that you want them to do so. yeah let's hope that federal lawmakers do in fact, step up to the plate chef david nathan felde of the great k. fico here in san francisco. really appreciate it, chef. thanks so much. thanks heather. but a code red for humanity of next here on the four. the alarming new report from the united nations about the impact of climate change on the planet. mostly sunny seasonal temperatures around the bay as we get into your bay area tuesday, though we start to warm it up. and eventually our inland cities expected to hit the century mark. i'll have a the century mark. i'll have a look at what you can exp is your family ready for an emergency? you can prepare by mapping out two ways to escape your home,

4:39 pm
a little preparation will make you and your family safer in an emergency. a week's worth of food and water, radio, flashlight, batteries and first aid kit are a good start to learn more, visit
4:40 pm
reached code red, the u. n climate report released today says global warming has only accelerated, it says hotter temperatures are likely to produce even more frequent heatwaves drought in other extreme weather by the 20 thirties, scientists say cyclones will also get stronger and wetter and arctic ice will melt raising sea levels. climate activists point out the report does not offer solutions and says it should prompt people to ask some tough questions of their political leaders. like what do we value? and are we ready to take action to ensure future and present living conditions? so i hope that this can be a wake up call. the u. n report draws on more than 14,000 scientific studies, it concludes. there is no doubt at this point the release of carbon dioxide emissions from human activity is what is to blame for global warming for more on this report,
4:41 pm
we're joined now by dr noah different ball from stanford's department of earth system science, dr different, bob. great to have you on here today to break down what this all means for us. we're already experiencing some of the severe effects of global warming. right now we look at the draft. about the heat waves. the destructive wildfires here in california that we're seeing, but this report suggests there is still time to stop things from getting even worse. how big of a wake up call is this? well this report, uh confirms, uh, that, uh, global warming is happening. uh it's being caused by human activities and, uh, that the impacts are accelerating and you know, something we see in this report is the identification of extreme events and the impacts of extreme events. that we're feeling, um, you know, day after day month after month, year after year, not only here in california but around the world, and we've had, you know, uh, real mountain of evidence
4:42 pm
over the last decade. that has, uh, made it clear that you know, global warming and climate change or not just an issue for the long term future. we're living with the impacts now. it's costing us now. tragically human wife, um, huge financial costs. uh and these impacts are going to accelerate. and uh, you know, as the report makes clear, the question now is you know how much global warming will we get? uh and that's something where where the window is still open. it's still up to, uh, up to humans were clearly. causing global warming and climate change. and you know it will be our actions that determine the both near term and long term future. the window is open but obviously closing rapidly. it seems like based on this u. n report. the sort of the best case scenario
4:43 pm
is that we are starting right now we rapidly cut greenhouse gas emissions and warming stabilizes at this 1.5 degrees celsius above pre industrial levels. what. why is that an important figure here in this conversation about reversing the effects of global warming and what steps need to be taken to make that future our reality? the reality is, is that where this really isn't a discussion about reversing the effects. this is really a discussion about how bad will the effects yet we've had 1.1 degrees celsius of global warming already, uh, will have, you know greater impacts at 1.5 degrees, then at 1.1 will have greater impacts at two degrees, then at 1.5, and if we continue along our current trajectory, then, as the report makes clear we're facing, you know, somewhere between three and maybe even up to six degrees of warming. uh compared to the 1 degrees we've already had. so the question now really is, uh,
4:44 pm
you know how how fast, will we, uh, de carbonized the you know, the biden administration has a goal of reaching at zero by. the mid century that california has very ambitious goals that we've had for some time that you china, many countries in many non state actors have goals of #### carbonized by around the mid century. if we're able to do that, then will get more climate change than we've already had more impact than we've already had, but less than if we continue along the current trajectory. it seems like there certainly is kind of this point of no return here and it's and it's rapidly approaching. the report is obviously a call to action for the global community to reduce carbon emissions here, moving forward in a really significant way. i'm curious as someone who studies these issues here. how optimistic are you that that this sort of wake up call from this report is going to be heard, and we are
4:45 pm
