5:05 pm
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 toured in oakland elementary school with oakland mayor libby schaaf and district officials and even though there are many 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
5:06 pm
about 850 students have opted for distance learning. that's less than 2% of the school population. frank rob roth live in the newsroom force tonight, rob. thank you. teachers and staff in the san jose unified school district are preparing to welcome back students to the classroom for in person instruction. we spoke with super in the superintendent there on mornings onto the nine and she says most of the districts, teachers and staff are already vaccinated. we have 90% of our employees vaccinated, so we're really proud of that number. employees have the option of being vaccinated or testing twice a week. right now, we are not requiring students to be vaccinated, but we are. encouraging all students that are eligible to get the vaccine. so what are you hearing? you do foresee that that may be mandated. um this coming academic year again? we're going to wait to hear from the state, california department of public health will let us know about that.
5:07 pm
okay, but we know that we are continuing to promote backseat nations for our students, and it's really to keep everybody safe. our schools open and the spread minimal in our communities. the superintendent also says students and staff will be required to wear masks indoors and outdoors while on campus students in the lafayette school district also went back to school today. then tomorrow students in the san ramon valley school district return to class and on thursday, students in the mount diablo unified school district go back. the new school year in the san francisco and west contra costa school districts begins next monday and next wednesday, august the 18th the san jose and fremont unified school districts will welcome back students in their classrooms. if you're having trouble finding before or after school care for your children, you're not alone. ktvu is christian captain joins us now he's live in san francisco and christian. there's a shortage
5:08 pm
like in many other industries in the childcare industry at workers just not available as many kids and families heading back to school. yeah it can be a real challenge trying to find after school care for your child here in san francisco and really around the bay area, and it could have broader implications on the economy if those parents have to stay home with their children instead of going back to work. as summer break winds down, families are preparing to go back to school and for many finding after school care is an unexpected challenge has been a struggle. um, we look up options, but i'm going to just stay with the kids and i will be taking them to other activities. uh we will hope that you got at the y m c. a and it's not just a problem in san francisco parents around the bay area, even across the country say they're facing the exact same problem. so i live in salt lake city. and an absolutely is a problem. my kids actually have the advantage of going to private
5:09 pm
school. but even in a private school, they really had to struggle with keeping numbers down. and, you know, trying to schedule after karen advance and so it's really limited who can get in college students are critical. gina farmer from the children's council, a child care advocacy group, says there's a widespread shortage of childcare workers. for instance, she says, in years past the y m c a child care programs in san francisco could accommodate 12,000. students now, she says that number is closer to just 4000. there are several factors at play. fewer college students have returned to school and are simply not available for part time childcare work and many full time or career childcare workers cannot go back on the job yet we know we don't have enough teachers, right and some of them have had to go back into their own homes to watch their own kids because they cannot afford or they cannot find care for their own children. she says. childcare was already scarce before the pandemic. now she says, it's even worse. what that means is there are parents who have to
5:10 pm
make the hard decision between going back to work or staying home to take care of children. they could go on, get nannies and figure things out. but kids who can't afford to pay for nannies and progress specific programs are on a waiting list. and so what did happen to the parent? they can't go back to work. they can't go to school. they can't support their families. this is really disruptive to families. wesley bell runs golden gate skateboarding as a summer and after school camp and says parents should think outside the box to find programs like his. even so, he says, it's been tough for him to staff up for the school here. it is kind of with things opening up. i have i have been losing staff, but i'm losing them back to working at schools are back to things that are reopening. so yeah, if you work with kids right now, it's kind of all hands on deck and the children's council is saying this is a problem that's in. acting all communities but is hitting black, brown and immigrant communities especially hard and especially the women in those communities. childcare council does have a
5:11 pm
tool on their website to help connect families with child care providers. we have a link to that on our website ktvu .com reporting live in san francisco christian captain ktvu fox two news. alright, christian. thank you. and his kids head back to the classroom. ktvu is partnering with supply bank dot org for annual back to school drive. if you'd like to make a donation, just go to ktvu .com slash school or scan the qr code that you see on your screen. all eyes on the weather is firefighters hope for some calmer winds to help them gain ground on the huge dixie fire that's still burning out of control. we'll have the latest also ahead tonight, taking matters into their own hands, some winery owners in napa county taking steps to protect their property from wildfires will have the details coming up. and we're into a warming trend around here. not so much today, slightly noticeable, but the next few days, you'll notice a big increase in temperatures as we head towards frida

progress against the massive dixie fire that fire started nearly a month ago and is still only 21% contained. it's burned more than 760 square miles in butte and plumas counties, 433 structures have been destroyed. there is some positive news tonight. today, the plumas county sheriff said that everyone who was unaccounted for has now been reported safe. survivors are now assessing their losses and trying to support their community. just not about there children, six that you can by its just the memories that we have there all the childhood childhood stuff that we had is gone. green goes
5:15 pm
strong. plumas county struck, we will all stand together and we will bring our community back. firefighters are battling at least seven major wildfires in northern california and southern oregon and more than 100, others around the west. some winery owners in napa county are taking steps to fight wildfires and protect their property. ktvu is tom vacar is here now with more and tom. the decision comes as these winery owners don't think they can count on cal fire crews to respond in a case of a wildfire in their area. well, they're just trying to make sure that they can count on themselves as well as cal fire because they want to see that expanded greatly, but whether it's a drought or infestations or flood or even wildfires, vintners once again are coming together for the single reason fight off mutual adversity. last september and october. is
5:16 pm
glass fire, damaged or destroyed? 28 napa county wineries, prompting a growing number of vintners to take self action as fire really brought home. the. the challenge that we face and, uh, motivated all of us to try to get ahead of this rather than just responding to it, and that means to protect your property, adding water supplies, adding sprinkler systems. clearing vegetation besides using earth moving equipment to create fire breaks or dig more ponds for water supplies. some are buying new or used firefighting equipment. especially water pumping tankers to take the fight to the encroaching fire. some are also training staff to fight fires, not just to save the wineries but their own livelihoods. but even they are not trying to replace cal fire or are volunteer firefighters. we are not advocating wholesale firefighting by private entities, even though vineyards are great firebreaks. the
5:17 pm
vintners. multi pronged approach includes creating larger, defensible space is also better. forest management fuel reductions off premises, adding staff and equipment to official fire protection agencies and vigorous post fire replanting to enhance water retention and reduce landslides. wineries have been plagued also by wildfire insurance cancellations and less coverage and even if they can get it a restricted level of coverage, they're paying up to four or five times as much as they used to. it's so bad. the governor just signed a bill allowing wineries to get into the state fair plan. california's insurer of last resort that in of itself is a good thing. however, the amount of coverage that the fair plan is able to extend is very small and make no mistake, although 95% of napa vineyards are small and family owned, they are critically important to the california economy makes up
5:18 pm
only 4% of the total acreage here in the state, but we contribute about 33% of the overall value economically. so um, we're a small place with a big impact. the other major thing that vintners worry about is the other major issue of income for them, and that would be tourism here in one country, not just one country here, everyone country in california, and there are plenty of those reporting live. tom baker, ktvu fox two news. so, tom, correct me if i'm wrong, but it sounds like what these vendors are doing is. coming up with their own solutions to hopefully keep the fire away until firefighting crews. real firefighting crews can come in and take care of the situation. that's exactly right. and, of course, the best way to do that is by defensible space and making sure that you support any effort in the forest outside too thin those forests out we have seen with these shaded firebreaks. they're
5:19 pm
called where they cut out all the underlying brush and all the underlying wouldn't all of that stuff. that they can prevent fires from spreading very quickly. but the problem is a lot of that hasn't happened here and many of the vineyards around here aren't just out here in the flats there, up in the mountains and in the hills here, and that's a place that's just full of trees, and a lot of those trees are dead from bark beetles dead from sudden oak death and dead from drought. so it's a big, big job, but they're finally doing something that they should have done a long time ago. but they're making the most advantage of it now. alright tom vacar in napa county for us tonight, tom. thank you. alrighty taking a look at the weather. we know it's warming up out there this week. that's the trend is not going to cool down. it's going to temperatures in that line behind me. you see it going up on friday, thursday and friday. we'll see some pretty warm days. the real heat is going to be in the pacific northwest, where they could see records again. very similar to that big event we had earlier this year not as biblical is that event. i don't think we'll see a bunch of all time records. we're going to see one. oh, 5106 is in areas away from the waters. johnson
5:20 pm
the pacific northwest oregon, washington parts of idaho and montana. for us, we've got this warm up and it will warm up, but it's not, you know, mid nineties upper nineties in the warmest spots of the of the inland bay valleys, so not to a typical for this time of year. it's kind of what you expect, um, in terms of what august and inland valley temperatures in the nineties, even low one hundreds are possible. so what do we got? we got fog at the coast. click this in for you, and it's not a lot so we don't see the big push. we see. an adult is always really getting vacation right that the highest building and the fog is not really able to encroach, and we'll see that again tonight and tomorrow we won't see or we shouldn't see a big push of fog inland tomorrow morning, and that's kind of what we had this morning. right? so it was a little less for august morning. be a little less fog tomorrow morning. let's look at air quality because that's on the top of a lot of people's minds. right now the reds and yellows. these are live sensors now. air quality sensors. you can see the burial looks good. you can see smoke if you look to the east, right if you look out towards well from being kind of see modesto's there for from
5:21 pm
here if you look up high enough, so the air quality not so great in tahoe or in sacramento or up around chico and red bluff, but it's getting a little bit better. let's look at the model. obviously where's the smoke? right the worst is the reds and purples, yellows, greens, so as we go through tomorrow, see it does this weird deal. so here's tomorrow morning. here's how kind of comes back a little bit that lobe up in redwood red bluff, and then you see tuesday afternoon, and then you see it wrapped around a little bit tuesday evening, so smoke still in the area that shouldn't be a problem for us. so the plan warming up around here heating up. i'll have that with the five day forecast when i see you next. you've seen a bit, bill. thank you. all right, take a look at this dramatic video shows a group of people in an elevator in omaha, nebraska, with water up to their necks. it took some time, but they were eventually rescued by firefighters. this comes in the wake of severe thunderstorms and flash flood warnings going into effect over the weekend in omaha. after a long weekend of fighting,

henry, the fourth surge of coronavirus infection shows knows. signs of slowing down, the federal government says the seven day average is up by 108,000 new cases. that's up 36% compared to the week before a growing number of children are hospitalized with covid 19, which is about 19% of the total as millions of children are heading back to school. some doctors say states should mandate vaccinations for all eligible school staff. they get everybody vaccinated, and that means all of the adolescents, teachers and staff. unlike california, some states are not requiring students or staff to wear masks in the classroom. joining us now for more in our covid conversations is doctor marm kilpatrick, he studies infectious diseases at the u. c santa cruz department of
5:35 pm
ecology and evolutionary biology. thank you so much for joining us. first of all, let's talk about all of the kids going back to school. do you think that masks should be required for everyone and you? think that all teachers and staff should be mandated to be fully vaccinated. i think both masks and vaccination or two of our best tools for reducing transmission of this virus, and certainly masks are relatively minor inconvenience to have in schools, especially when compared to things like distancing right, so it's very hard to have most schools operate using the three ft or six ft distance rules, but wearing masks doesn't require any additional distances. so i think these are measures that we can take and they do reduce transmission and they help keep us safer. when it comes to vaccinations. is it time to finally start playing hardball? should proof of vaccination. be like a passport and i'm using that passport word deliberately to get into restaurants, movie theaters, gyms, maybe department stores. in other words, is it time to double
5:36 pm
down and say that time is up. essentially you either get vaccinated now or there will be consequences. so i think you know this is approach that's being taken in some places. some of reviewers excuse me some of your will have seen this happening. i think in new york city and some other places, and the idea, of course, is that we know many of these settings are relatively high risk, with people being close to each other and possibly not be able to wear masks like restaurants. when you're eating. you can't wear a mask. right so if you require vaccination that really does improve the safety of these places and reduce transmission, and i think incentivizing basically allowing us access to these things that we really enjoy. that will incentivize people getting vaccinated, so it definitely be a tool to help us in the right direction. i'm still having a hard time honestly, understanding why some. one would not want to get a vaccine, especially at this time where we're in 1/4 surge where we all know that the vaccine can be effective. uh what would possibly be the argument for not getting a
5:37 pm
vaccine? i guess the two arguments. i think that are out there. one is that some people simply don't have very good access so they sometimes have time. difficulty getting time off work to get vaccinated. that's one possibility and other folks have been, unfortunately had a lot of misinformation put towards them that they actually fear the vaccine more than the disease, which is definitely not the right calculation, but definitely information has been put out there to confuse people in that way. would you have any concern about getting vaccinated? i'm figuring that you probably have been already. absolutely. i've been vaccine for several months now and certainly have encouraged all my family members to do so as well. all right, on the flip side of this vaccines certainly aren't foolproof. if i have a friend who happens to be a doctor, and she just found out today that four people she knows all of whom have been vaccinated, have all just gotten the coronavirus. is that an indication that. some of us if not many of us may need to get a booster shot. uh so the good thing about the vaccines we have, even without a booster is that even though with a
5:38 pm
delta grant, a higher fraction of people are becoming infected. the vaccines are still showing very great efficacy against severe disease. so nearly all of the people that are getting infected with sars cov two with this virus after vaccination, or having relatively milder, actually completely asymptomatic infections, and so the efficacy against severe disease and death is still greater than 95. sense, so the vaccines are still doing really well at that, even though they're not preventing complete infections, as well as against some of the previous variants, so whether or not we need to have boosters really depends on whether our goal is to maximize the number people that can get shots or really, to maximize the chance of reducing the chance of infection at all. so right now, the vaccines are doing a great job against severe disease, and that's the primary goal. alright professor kilpatrick. we appreciate you taking the time to talk with us tonight. thank you so much. thank you. canada reopened its border, too. day, two american visitors, this is what it looked like at the border crossing in washington state, a long line of traffic now u. s travelers who are vaccinated
5:39 pm
can cross into canada as long as they have documentation that shows they have been vaccinated and have proof of a negative coronavirus test. many family members are eager to be reunited with relatives across the border. we're happy. we're anxious will be much happier when we get on the other side. americans flying into canada will have to submit information, including negative test results before boarding the plane. new york governor andrew cuomo's top aide has now resigned as the governor faces increasing pressure to step down amid sexual misconduct. accusations also u. s gymnasts uneasily in the history books becoming best in the world for gymnastics. i look at her warm welcome home from the tokyo olympics. intensir

a long time aide of the governor resigned from her post. melissa derosa, a longtime supporter of new york governor, andrew cuomo, has stepped down. the move comes nearly one week after new york state attorney general leticia james released bombshell findings following an independent investigation into cuomo. it concluded he sexually harassed 11 women during his tenure as governor. meanwhile one of cuomo's accusers is going public for the first time, accusing the governor of groping her while she served as an executive assistant on his staff. i then felt while taking the selfie his hand go down my back onto my butt, and he started rubbing it, not sliding it, not, you know, quickly brushing over it, rubbing my, but this was a dream job, and it's unfortunate. he turned into a nightmare. cuomo has shown no indication that he
