6:01 pm
anybody who wants one can get one. anybody who wants to claim one can have one. it's sort of the wild wild west. in terms of the vaccine mandate. we found more than 160, california nursing homes have less than 90% of workers vaccinated. three are in the bay area valley house rehabilitation center in santa clara, richmond post acute care and medical hill health care center in oakland. we have causes for concern. chicken tail found facilities with extremely low vaccination rates, filing five complaints with the state begging for accountability, but it comes at a time when nursing home staff is critical. i think we want to be supportive of all of our workers. we need every single person we can get back, then hated or not family. um because we don't have enough people. i would like to see everybody vaccinated for families. it's worrisome not knowing what's going on inside and struggling to see a loved one. it's super frustrating. it's scary. it's painful. it's
6:02 pm
stop you. you know you feel like there's nothing you can do. we have reached down to all of the bay area nursing homes with low vaccination rates. at this point , we've heard nothing back, but the california department of public health says it continues efforts to encourage vaccinations and boosters and ensure their easily accessible and available. in the newsroom mind. brooks jarocz ktvu fox two news, brooks. thank you. starting tomorrow, people will be able to get the cost of at home. covid-19 tests covered by their insurance in most cases, when people pick up the tests, they'll only have to give their insurance information, but some may have to submit a claim. private insurance will cover eight tests per month. the biden administration has a new plan to help you get at home tests. the white house confirmed plans to launch a website next week, which will allow you to request to four test kits. it's called covid tests dot gov. the kids will be shipped for free about one week after their order. it's
6:03 pm
estimated. that we will hit approximately 15 million tests today. and we'll have over 375 million at home rapid test in january alone. that's a huge leap. in addition to ramping up testing, the biden administration announced today, defense department medical teams will be deployed to six states hit hard by staffing shortages at hospitals. those states include new mexico, michigan, ohio, new jersey, new york and rhode island. revised osha rules went into effect today on workplace covid testing and safety. fully vaccinated people who are exposed to covid. but don't have symptoms can stay at work if they were a mask and stay distanced from co workers for 10 work days, but people exposed to haven't gotten boosters have to isolate for at least five days, employers must provide fda approved test too exposed workers, including vaccinated asymptomatic employees. the use of an at home
6:04 pm
test must be overseen with either a telehealth professional or the employer. santa clara county health officials work today to clear up confusion over the type of test you should use . ktvu is jesse gary explains. they hope this will ease the regions testing shortage problem. santa clara county officials say covid test appointments at its site at the county fairgrounds running at least one week behind demand. we don't expect this situation to last for that much longer to midday news conference, county health officer dr sara cody saying antigen tests should be used to determine if quarantine can be ended. when am i no longer infectious? when am i no longer a risk to others, and an agent test is the best test to use their a pcr test should be used to determine if you've been infected with the covid virus or one of its variants, using the correct test for the corresponding situation could help ease the overall shortage, according to officials. people who have previously tested positive, so conceivably they
6:05 pm
have a higher loading their body. then those home tests could help that as well. so you don't have to lose the pcr test that you would have otherwise had. yes that's correct. also friday, county health officials called out private healthcare providers for not doing their fair share of testing. officials say the county serves 15% of the population's health needs but conducts 20% of covid tests. kaiser serves 30% of patients but does only 12% of testing. and the palo alto medical foundation serves 16.5% of county residents, but only does a little more than 2% of testing. this is a health order. we have in the past taken enforcement with respect to the testing order, we're prepared to do so again. a spokesperson for sutter health, which palo alto medical foundation is part of says in a statement. we have increased our overall testing capacity. the palo alto medical foundation doubled appointment availability for covid-19
6:06 pm
testing, including licensed retail and community sites and at home antigen tests, kaiser officials say we object to any suggestion that our frontline healthcare workers are not doing their fair share. we are baffled by the county suggestion. that anyone is holding back. the santa clara county council says he'd like to hear from anyone who requested it. covid test from their private healthcare provider and has not received a covid test. those private providers under orders since 2020 to provide those tests in san jose jesse gary ktvu, fox two news board members in hayward unified school district are expected to decide if online classes should continue beyond this week. school district returned to distance learning this week due to the recent spike in new covid cases. that decision came despite the advice of the alameda county office of education, which had advised the district keep hayward schools opened and the district could lose more than $12 million in daily attendance funds from the

6:22 pm
lives and really see that this will work. it never showing viewers map of where those streets are. this is part of the vision zero plan that plan says on average 30 people die 500 seriously injured on city streets every year. how big of a difference though that's five miles make well, a few things to know is over 75% of the traffic violence in our streets happen on only 13% of all of our quarters and even dropping the speed limit by a few mph will help save lives. so let me give you a stat. if you're traveling at 20, mph, and you hit someone listen 90% chance that that person will survive if a car is traveling at 40 mph. there's only a 20% chance that that person will survive even an incremental difference of five. mph can be the difference between death and serious injury and not david, i want to ask you as part of a pilot project. you lowered the speed limit in the tenderloin to 20 mph back in
6:23 pm
april. have you seen success there? um you know, off the top my head. i'm not sure specifically on that. but i would guess that that would be the case. we have seen the data all over the country that when you reduce speed on quarters that were previously very dangerous. you save lives, and we're going to be piloting these first seven quarters. i know the san francisco municipal transportation agency will be looking at the data to make sure that this is working as we consider it elsewhere in other quarters that have been challenged, but at the end of day we have to save lives. we've had years of a traffic epidemic , traffic violence and anything we can do to really prevent these tragedies. we i think we have to david. i only got a little bit of time left but very quickly. how important is the enforcement piece of this? well it's gonna be enforced in the way that all of our traffic laws from force, but an important component of what our city will be doing is educating people on
6:24 pm
the importance of obeying the speed limit. and the fact that on these quarters were reducing speed by five mph good information there. san francisco city attorney david chu always appreciate your time. thanks for joining us. thanks for having me. a new highway project is expected to improve traffic in san mateo today, congresswoman jackie speier announced plans to widen it real line connecting ramps at how a 1 to 1 and 92. congresswoman speier says before the pandemic about 400,000 cars traveled through that interchange every day, putting many people at risk of an accident. what you will see on the highway is. a number of things, among them skid marks from accidents, broken parts from cars. we're parts of an accident. and. it is often times overloaded. construction for the project is on track to begin next year, and congresswoman
