4:00 pm
answer, but it is. it is a challenging balance of risk that needs to be taken. from ktvu. fox two news. this is the fourth also this afternoon, a new warning from health officials do your research before you get a covid-19 tests as some locations may not be qualified to give you accurate results. welcome everyone to the four on this monday afternoon. i'm heather holmes and i'm alex savage has oh, macron cases surged. the demand for testing is through the roof right now, but health experts are warning everyone to be careful which sites they go to for testing. ktvu christian captain joining us now from san francisco's mission district. and christian city. health officials have already sent out a warning about unauthorized sites like the one you found today. yes that's right. for hours there was a covid testing site. that was a pop up site right here today. when we checked out their licensing and certification. it was out of date. now the person
4:01 pm
who was staffing that site directed me to call a supervisor from crestview clinical labs when we called that woman as soon as identified who i was and where i was from she hung up on me. since at least last week, bob soto has been setting up this testing tint at the corner of 18th and delores streets and within minutes lines of people wanting covid tests show up many of those patients unaware that this site is not operating with the proper licensing and certification. a problem. crestview clinical laboratories argues, does not endanger patients and should your patients at all be concerned. no. soto blames the out of date permits on a supervisor who sent him to this location without the proper certification. it appears that the permits are expired or out of date. because that one is known to date. i think that one's okay. uh i'll point that out because we found out that out today, but i'll point it out to her and then i'll get new ones. and i think tomorrow we tried calling that supervisor
4:02 pm
who hung up on the phone as soon as i told her who i was. san francisco's department of public health has been warning that with the increase in demand for covid testing, unlicensed pop up sites are showing up in the city quote. we are aware of groups offering covid-19 testing in this city that do not appear to have the appropriate permits and licensing to set up testing stations. people should use caution and not use testing sites that seem too good to be true. because they may not be trustworthy. so far, the health department has not said if there's any kind of enforcement effort to stop unlicensed vendors from providing tests patients that stopped at this location, said the urgency of testing right now has them unconcerned that the vendor that now has their private medical information is currently unlicensed. i have kaiser but they ran out of appointments and i happened to drive by and working out perfect for me, and it doesn't bother you that they're that they're a licensing appears to be out of date or expired. no, i think they're still medical professionals. at
4:03 pm
the same time, the department of public health says the crushing demand for testing coupled with staffing shortages due to the omicron variant means the city has to reduce the overall number of tests that can process the city says it's looking to reduce testing. by about 4% or 250 tests out of 6000 practically what that means. the city will be operating on limited hours at four testing sites for a day or two to reduce the overall number of tests where live in san francisco, christien kafton ktvu , fox studios and christian for the folks setting up these unauthorized testing sites. what what is the endgame here? why have they decided to do this? but we're trying to get to the bottom of that. presumably they're trying to continue these testing and turn these tests in the gentleman with whom i spoke today, said that the tests were going to be processed. he said that the tests were accurate and that they were people seemed to indicate that he felt he was doing a civic duty by coming out here and offering a service that people said that they needed but again, you've got to keep in
4:04 pm
mind that if they're unlicensed, you are turning over private medical information. you're also turning over personal information, including your email address and your phone number to this company so they can contact with these results because these are pcr. tests so the tests actually be performed and then have to notify the patient at some point in time. so you're not only turning over that medical information to them. you're also turning over personal information as well. all right, but they are not charging people to have these tests done right. they were not charging at the site now. alright. christien kafton live in san francisco. thank you. the hayward unified school district is now moving to online only learning for at least one week and that will start tomorrow. the district voted to switch to distance learning due to short staffing and an emergency meeting that was held on friday. they say that on friday, 365 staff members were absent. 117 staff members tested positive for covid and another 33 were out because of possible exposure. county health

4:40 pm
the sidelines. joe montana was rolling towards me early in my broadcast career, so i don't really have the same sympathies as your father, as you just saw in 75 years of 49ers history, there's no shortage of dramatic moments, so a game has to be special to call it an instant classic. but that's exactly what yesterday's when over the rams was that game was wild had, um yeah, that's that's that's a special one. for a game to be a classic. it has to have importance. there's nothing more important to a team on the final day of the regular season, then a game that determines whether or not you make the playoffs. falling into a 17 to nothing hole in the second quarter. isn't this suggested method to win a crucial game? i wasn't stressful at all. ah yeah. i mean, our game plan was going 17 0 17 3 a half. that was our goal. it's a testament this team . what that team then did was epic. it wasn't just a matter of pulling even which the 49ers did
4:41 pm
with the 14 point third quarter touchdown 49ers. it was then about coming back from another seven point deficit with only a minute, 27 left to tie and then winning with the field goal and a clinching interception in overtime. that was a game you dream of being able to play in, you know, especially how the game went. and unfortunately it enough to get the win. and as soon as the playoffs besides the score, what will always be remembered about the game was the effort by the quarterback wherever his career eventually ends up, jimmy garoppolo goes down in 49 are lower as someone who engineered an all time moment while working through a thumb injury on his throwing hand to come back in. lead us down there. how many other yards it was like close to teams a little over 80 to tie it up to senator with an overtime. he was unbelievable today. that's jimmy . he's a good football player. he knows how to bounce back. doesn't think snowball and he just flushes. it goes on to the next place a lot of emotions
4:42 pm
throughout the whole game to just stops and downs. getting off to a slow start and then coming back like we did it was it took everything the 49ers have to win or tie this afternoon to get into the playoffs. another reason why yesterday was a day to always remember for 49 or fans. what they did has happened only four times in team history. most memorably three straight years in the seventies and most recently, 36 years ago against sunday's opponent, the dallas cowboys, needing a win in the final day of the regular season and getting it to assure themselves of a spot in the playoffs. this jimmy garoppolo lead team can now be compared to those led by john brody. he'd like now to be compared to the teams led by joe montana and steve young. and it's hard to call it a bay area double because the former bay area team now called las vegas it's home. but the raiders had an equally thrilling regular season finale last night with just as much at stake the raiders hosting their
