everyone. i'm julie julie haener and i'm frank somerville before that mandate took effect, students went back to school in the south san francisco unified school district. it's the first time students there were back in class since march of 2020. the district has now upgraded its ventilation, and it's using hospital grade machines to disinfect rooms with ultraviolet light parents. we talked to say they're confident that the district is doing its best to keep kids and staff safe and that doing nothing compares to the experience of in person learning. my son did not thrive over the zoom sessions over. the last year. um and worried about how he would enjoy school if we weren't able to get back on campus. in some extent, i think that the social thing is it's really nice for them that their friends you know the teachers having contact one on one. they really missed that, too. the south san francisco school. the
5:01 pm
circuit is offer an online options through a third party for families who aren't comfortable bringing their kids back to the classroom. just yet. south san francisco joins oakland, san ramon valley and sonoma with kids back in the classroom, while mass were already mandated. now, vaccinations will be to governor newsom made it clear he wants california to lead the way on school safety. ktvu political reporter, greg lee was at the announcement in oakland this morning. greg julia good evening. california is the first state in the nation to implement these kinds of requirements for all staff in all schools. governor newsom said. the intention is clear to encourage more people to get vaccinated. we're now following up today, uh, to align our school strategy. all california teachers and staff at public and private schools must be back. fascinated or submit to weekly covid testing under a new order from governor newsom. he announced the first in the nation order flanked by education and elected officials
5:02 pm
at carl b. monk elementary in oakland to address the number one anxiety that parents like myself have have four young children, and that is knowing that the schools are doing everything in their power to keep our kids safe, the policy falls requirements previously announced for state employees and healthcare workers. amid a rise in cases and hospitalizations fueled by the delta variant, several bay area school districts, including san francisco, oakland, san jose, and marin already announced their own vaccine or testing requirements ahead of the state. but there are 1000 plus other schools. districts in the state or rather districts in the state that we want to courage along, and we believe that this will begin a process of significantly increasing vaccination rates across the spectrum and across the state. today's announcement is a key one to making sure that every student is coming back safe, ready to learn. every staff member is feeling safe. and supported newsom has previously
5:03 pm
deferred to districts were asked about taking this step. he defended the timing, saying conversations have been ongoing with labor leaders. we are highly in favor of all the layers of support that will keep schools open and keep students, staff and the community safe. the order was embraced by the oakland education association as long as exemptions are included. their plan goes further requiring testing for staff regardless of vaccination status. california teachers association wrote this in a statement. today's announcement is an appropriate next step to ensure the safety of our school communities and to protect our youngest learners under 12, who are not yet vaccine eligible from this highly contagious delta variant. sita also said 90% of its members are already vaccinated. this policy goes into place tomorrow. all schools must be in compliance by october. 15th reporting live. gregory ktvu, fox two news, julie. all right, greg, thank you and reaction to the
5:04 pm
governor's announcement came quickly from the candidates running to replace him in the recall election. including from republican front runner larry elder, he tweeted quote governor elder will reverse this order. encouraging vaccination is fine government mandating it is not. joining us now to talk more about this new mandate is doctor jean noble from u c s f dr. thank you for joining us. first of all, what's your reaction to the governor's mandate today? i really applaud the mandate the vaccination strategy getting our entire population vaccinated is really the way out of this pandemic. our kids have suffered terribly by being shut out of school for the last 18 months or so. so requiring teachers to be vaccinated, i view is very similar to reach. acquiring healthcare workers to be vaccinated, vaccinated all those in the essential portions of the economy will really help normalize, normalize our society and get us back to where we were pre covid. when
5:05 pm
it comes down to it. the governor really have any other choice. as a parent. i know i'd want my daughter's teachers vaccinated and i'd want my daughter and all teachers to wear a mask not only to help protect themselves, but also everyone else. it just seems so simple to me, agreed. it's this is a really painless interventions that will let our lives get back to normal. it really feels like a no brainer. and then i think the next question is when will we be able to get rid of our masks. and once we know all the adults on campus are vaccinated and soon in as early as september or early october. our youngest students are 5 to 11 year old students will be eligible for vaccination. once everyone in the school setting is eligible to receive the vaccine. i don't think there's going to be much justification for continued masking in the school setting, and that will really be, i think. a big step forward to getting our kids back to the
5:06 pm
social environment that they've that they've been deprived of. for the last year and a half. you work in the emergency room. if you don't mind me asking a personal question. what is it like working on coronavirus patients? it must be heartbreaking in some cases, seeing them, especially in cases where they weren't vaccinated. yeah it is. it is tough. you know, we are tired. we've been doing this for a long time and i have spearheaded our vaccination program. indian emergency department, so i make an effort to approach every one of my patients about, uh, getting vaccinated. if they are, they're not vaccinated and frankly, it's quite frustrating. we have you know, a lot of people come in with covid, who are unvaccinated who regret that decision. but those who come in and aren't vaccinated and have no interest in it. either to protect themselves or to protect their grandparents are the vulnerable people in their lives is just it's really tough. it's really it's really tough to continue to have that
5:07 pm
dialogue after so many months. is there a light at the end of the tunnel here? we've been going like this for 18 months now with the coronavirus at what point do you see life getting back to normal for us? i think once our entire society, you know, ages zero through 100 have access to the vaccine. it's time to get back to normal. we cannot expect everyone in our society in our communities to continue to mask and, you know, restrict their lives in one way or another. to protect the unvaccinated once everyone has access to the vaccine. i think you know we do the best we can, and we go when we go back to normal, and that's that's the vaccination is the way to get there. and i think, if you know if businesses if restaurants and bars and sporting events if we have a movement to require vaccination before you get into
5:08 pm
large, congregate settings, i think people will get baxter and we will put this behind us and get back to a pre covid. lifestyle that's what we're all looking forward to. it just seems like the right thing to do for yourself and for everyone else is to get vaccinated. dr. noble. we appreciate you taking the time to talk with us. thank you so much. the cdc updated its guidelines today and urged pregnant women to get vaccinated. health officials decided to make the recommendation after finding no increased risk of pregnancy loss. just 23% of pregnant women have received at least one shot of a vaccine. today's news comes just as u. c. s f released new research finding an increased risk of complications for pregnant women who do get sick with covid 19, the fda is reportedly expected to approve a third dose of the covid vaccine for um you know, compromise people. the cdc could vote on the matter friday when an advisory group is set to meet. doctors would then be able to start prescribing extra doses. there are almost three million people
5:09 pm
living in the us with compromised immune systems and taking a look at the latest numbers on backs. nations statewide, health officials say nearly 64% of californians age 12 and older are now fully vaccinated. another 10% are partially vaccinated altogether. that is 25 million people. the state is currently averaging about 74,000 new doses being administered per day in marin county. firefighters have stopped the forward progress of a wildfire on the eastern part of mount tamil pius. firefighters say flames came from a car fire and then spread about an acre to an acre and a half of vegetation near ridgecrest on the mountains. east peak. no buildings were burned in the fire, and no injuries have been reported. cruz dropped retardant on that fire to stop its spread. fire officials say people should avoid the area. there is no word yet on what caused that car fire containment in the massive dixie fire grew to 30% overnight up from 27% yesterday. the fire has now
5:10 pm
burned more than 500,000. acres employments butte to hama and lassen counties. we also learned today that the fire has destroyed more than 1000 buildings, including almost 550 homes. the dixie fire has already leveled the gold rush town of greenville, and it's still threatening 14,000 homes. thousands of people living near the fire zones remain out of their homes under evacuation orders several times in the last week. i wished i could just go home. and then i remember. you can't go home or something. go back to the dixie fire has now grown to the largest single fire in california history. pg and e also says that one of their lines may have started that fire, a former college professor here in the bay area, is sitting in the sacramento county jail tonight u. s forest service agents arrested him and accused him of setting fires near the dixie fire. ktvu is
5:11 pm
jesse gary joins us. now he's live and following the latest developments in this case, jesse. julia gary menard had a detention hearing this afternoon. he attended virtually because he is still in the sacramento county jail, and that's where he's going to stay as the court believes he continues to be a threat. the firefighters and the public. until last year, gary maynard had been a college lecturer. he taught criminal justice at sonoma state university and worked as in a junk faculty member at santa clara university. he's now accused of felony arson, intentionally setting a series of fires near the 500,000 square acre dixie fire. the fact that somebody would be intentionally setting those fires. is not only, um, a threat to the community, but obviously a threat to the firefighters in court filings, the assistant u. s attorney for the eastern district of california, says menard entered the evacuation zone and began setting fires behind the first responders fighting the dixie fire. in addition to the danger
5:12 pm
of enlarging the dixie fire and threatening more lives and property, this increased the danger to the first responders, but for the dedication and effort of u. s forest service investigators working on around the clock to track menard. those fires would not have been discovered in their infancy. with menard's growing fires at their backs. firefighters would have been placed at much greater risks. at wednesday's detention hearing, prosecutors asked that maynard be held without bail. the u. s magistrate agreed, saying there are no assurances the defendant would show up for future court appearances and that he would likely continue to be a threat to the public and firefighters. but when you, uh, factor in other kinds of activities caused by human beings, it just makes a difficult job even more difficult and more dangerous. sonoma state university emailed a statement saying in part, menard was contracted to fill in for a faculty member who was on leave. he taught two semesters in criminology and criminal justice studies. in
5:13 pm

today, paving the way for democrats do ultimately passed the infrastructure package with a simple majority. moderate votes will be key as democrats try to use a special budget process to push the package through along party lines. republicans have already slammed the bill as a reckless spending spree with funding initiatives for things like medicare expansion, fighting climate change and family and education programs. think this is socialism. it is a package that is looking to push further
5:17 pm
people like alexandra has your cortez and bernie sanders socialist agenda. the passage of the budget blueprint came after republicans for several amendment votes on democrats to put them on the record and many controversial issues from the green new deal to defunding, the police today. several california lawmakers discussed how the infrastructure bill will benefit the golden state. i'm proud to have champion specific measures in the bill that will strengthen our electrical grid that will find water conservation programs and improve sustainable transportation options, including electrifying the nation's school bus fleets. imagine being able to retire diesel power school buses and replace them with zero emission buses. the bill will provide billions in federal funding not only to help improve california's aging infrastructure, but supporters say, also creating new union jobs while growing our economy,
5:18 pm
the u. s labor secretary was in the bay area today to push the benefits of the infrastructure bill. but california has had a real problem paying those who were unemployed. he was questioned about that today as well. kate views tom vacar in the newsroom. now with what the federal plan is to help the unemployed get the money that is there's tom. certainly about time, though california figures heavily in the recovery. the labor market is troubled here, and the city has yet to recover from the continuing title wave of claims. and backlogs. i talked to the secretary of labor and a key congressmen from the bay area about that, labor secretary marty walsh, former boston mayor in town to push the benefits of the bipartisan infrastructure bill gave us a few minutes to talk about california's labor situation. we're dealing with a pandemic, something that we've never, ever dealt with before, at least in our lifetime. uh and it's a very complicated, difficult time to challenging
5:19 pm
time to govern last week to the golden state has less. than 12% of the nation's workforce. california's filed 20% of the nation's regular unemployment claims and get this 50% of the nation's federal pandemic claims and the latest numbers show ed staff actually, answers of poultry 8% of the calls it received. and still has a long term backlog of almost a quarter million. claims we're gonna be making investments and reforming looking at reforming some of the way we do business here and moving forward, so i think the federal government does have a role to play and needs to step into this role, but, says the labor secretary, a lot of the problems handed the newsome came from the previous administrations poor handling of relief funds. i think the last you know four years showed a lot of deficiencies in the federal government areas that we should have been more supportive of states where we weren't east baker congressman mark desaulnier sits on the house labor committee. it's unacceptable at any level, and the federal government has a role to play in this because
5:20 pm

5:21 pm
checking in on the weather. it was pretty hot out there today are quality not too bad today we're going to see a little more smoke. i mentioned it last night. we'll see a little more smoke in the bay area over the next couple of days. air quality right now. you can kind of see that those yellows right? those dots that represents the smoke this morning that when in the morning and at night, you kind of sinks and kind of runs down into the valley. and so what we're seeing is smoke draining out through those river drainages at the from the feather river and then again up around the uber river, and there's a new fire up around brownsville, which is the glen fire. it's over 100 acres right now, and that's also in this area, so we're getting a lot of smoke and that smoke is going to have the opportunity. you'll see it coming up here. let me see if i can dig this up for you. yeah, so here's this. smoke model mark put this together for us to these are kind of our wizard when it comes to putting this stuff together, but you can see the smoke as we go into tonight. area that's mostly high level stop the heaviest smoke out of the area. but look at that thursday night. and then into friday, and you just just so
5:22 pm
smoke, and that's why there's an air quality alerts set for tomorrow. um it's not, i shouldn't be intense smoke at all, but it'll probably at higher elevations as well. as you see, now like that looks like a pretty clear picture. but there are smoking that if you look up a little high, you'll see a little bit of a great tinge. and that is upper level smoke coming in from the valley were looking kind of towards the north and towards the east, so it's looking up towards as the crow flies in that shot. you're kind of looking towards mount shasta, maybe a little more more charge mount last. but so, yeah. so smoke back in the forecasting and don't don't freak out about it just know that you'll notice it a little bit more as we go into tomorrow, the next day. plus we have an opportunity for some thundershowers probably won't see them but what we will see as an increase in humidity as that moisture comes up around off the coast, and that's some tropical moisture that will you know if the humidity inland is goes to 25% and it's 90 degrees, that's brutal heat, right places like economy. that's a lot. i mean, 30% humidity that's big for us, especially with the heat that we're going. to see tomorrow so humidity might be something you notice. and then this week we
5:23 pm
continue on. with this forecast, which is inland temperatures still and then mid nineties to even some low 100 that's going to last us really in through the week little even in the weekend, it's going to cool a little bit like temperatures tomorrow i'll be slightly cooler, but the general theme is more of the same, and that's why we're looking at the potential for more smoke in the forecast. more heat in the forecast. fire danger ratchets up. no, no warnings. no there's an air quality there, but there's no red flag words or things like that. but day when you get heat after heat after heat day in the central valley and looks so and not a lot of cooling overnight, then fires like that fire up in near brownsville, the glen fire they pop up just doesn't take much to get a fire going when you have a lot of hot days in a row, and we're kind of getting onto that now, with these temperatures inland over 90 degrees every day over 95 up to 100. i'll see you back here in a little bit. we'll take a look specifically at your neighborhood in the weekend. alright bill. we'll see you then. thank you. police say a mother walked into a bay area nail salon after leaving her

5:38 pm
can spread covid and their viral load is just as high initially as those who are unvaccinated. these rules apply to hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and intermediate care facilities. people ktvu spoke with have mixed reactions. personally i got vaccinated, but hospitals asking that. you know, it's just i mean, that's probably a violation of your rights situation is pushing other people to get the vaccine, including me, so it's kind of like more like pressuring people to get it in order to do things that you would normally do. hospital visitors must also wear masks and follow physical distancing guidelines. some medical centers are also limiting the number of visitors at john muir and ucsf. only one visitor is allowed at a time. new state health order is also requiring all medical workers to get vaccinated in walnut creek. i'm elissa harrington ktvu fox two news. the world health organization will begin testing three drugs to treat coronavirus patients. the u. n
