vaccine, protesters attacked officers and destroyed parts of the building in brussels. that building is used by the european union's diplomatic service. the demonstrators threw projectiles at the entrance and smash windows. police said. the protest in the belgium capital drew an estimated 50,000 people, some traveling from france and germany to take part. video footage did show a police van being shaken. garbage cans and sections of a metal fencing were also thrown at officers going downstairs into a subway station. police did fire water cannons and thick clouds of tear gas to disperse those protesters . oakland teachers threatening to strike over covid safety protocols say they are going back to the bargaining table, ktvu semantic quintana as the latest on their ongoing dispute. the oakland education association. the union representing those teachers, says that it is meeting with the district today again and they say they have not come to an agreement. but they are making some progress in negotiations because of the progress that we
11:09 pm
have made on our core demands. um we feel like we are comfortable meeting with them again. jose padilla in elementary school teacher negotiating with the district, along with six other oakland teachers, says the two sides agree on many of the safety protocols needed to keep schools safe. but the district hasn't put that in writing. they're not willing to commit to us, you know, and because of that, because we want to make sure that these are solid commitments from the district that are going to last us through the end of the school year and not just last us for a couple of weeks, and then they say, okay, well, we've decided things have changed now. what do we want? where do we want to the union has three core demands weekly covid testing at all schools with extended hours up to six p.m. the highest grade masks consistently available to staff and students and to plan on what to do if a number of teachers
11:10 pm
are out sick, something were seen in many schools right now we continue and continue. offering ideas and working with the district to negotiate with them. on what the plan what are different options for possible plans to keep schools as open as possible and have as many healthy students going to school as they can. um while also recognizing if you know 30 teachers are out. it is not a safe place. the district says. it's come to eight different agreements with the teachers union during the pandemic, including measures on ppe covid testing and contact tracing and it already passed out. 200,000 k n 95 masks to schools. it also says it has robust testing in place and has put at least two air filtration systems in every classroom. but padilla says that's not enough. the reason that the district is doing these
11:11 pm
things is because they have been pushed to do that by the community. by parents, students , schools teachers, while the group has ignored it's friday deadline, padilla says that doesn't mean they're backing down. there will be a strike vote if we do not have our needs in place, so that that is going to be happening in the future. um but it's not something that we're doing this very moment in oakland. amanda chemchina, ktvu fox two news. dr anthony found. you describes a best case scenario for living with and controlling the coronavirus after the omicron variant surges over control means you're not eliminating it. you're not eradicating it, but it gets down to such a low level. that it's essentially integrated into the general respiratory infections that we have learned to live with. coming up more about what infectious disease experts are
11:12 pm
saying about learning to live with the coronavirus and the move to five g has some people concerned coming up? why there's worry it could affect your health. and we're still waiting on the rain. but there are some indications that that is about to get closer to happening. i'll see you back here with that. can you see my wall of smiles? when i first started using genesys technology i was kind of embarrased at all the love and attention i got from my customers. people are so moved by how much i understand about them. they start including me in their lives.

specifically to the omicron variant. but dr anthony fauci is also talking about what covid looks like in the long run. ktvu zach sauce joins us now he's live in oakland, with reaction from bay area doctors, zack good evening. yes doctor anthony fauci, predicting that cases of the omicron variant will hit a peak by mid february . then come down from there and all this really opening the door for him to speak for more of a long term perspective about what we may expect next. we'd like it to get down to that level where it doesn't disrupt us in the sense of getting back to a degree of normality, doctor anthony fauci on abc's this week describing a best case scenario for society after the surge of the omicron variant is over, the nation's chief medical advisor says the world will likely never be completely rid of the virus. the goal is to bring it under control control means you're not eliminating it. you're not eradicating it, but it gets down to such a low level. that it's essentially integrated into the general respiratory infections
11:15 pm
that we have learned to live with, hopefully turning covid-19 into something which infectious disease experts say would be akin to the common cold or flu, according to ucsf's doctor, monica gandhi, and then we'll have to incorporate it into what we do with other respiratory pathogens and live with it, but exactly how covid-19 might be treated down the road. still unclear that we don't know if we're going to need recurrent covid vaccinations. dr gandhi says the hope is that once the omicron surges over enough of the population will have gained immunity to covid-19 to kickstart what's being described by health experts as the endemic what it means the endemic phases we take out the pandemic measures we take out asymptomatic testing. we likely won't be telling people to mask you can certainly mask if you want to, but that can't be mandated. still dr gandhi, making it clear i would not let down our guard yet is that dr fauci was talking about today we really do need it to be lower case is low cases for us to go
11:16 pm
to an endemic state health experts, including dr fauci, predicting that could happen by mid february. i think it's a very informed and reasonable hope of where we're going to be in the next several months, but u c. berkeley's dr john schwartzberg cautioning this viruses and difficult to predict in the past, and it may be still in the future, concerned about the potential for another variant to arise. if it's a very that is something far worse. first than delta and macron, something that can evade our community we get from a previous infection or the immunity we get from vaccines. then all bets are off, but describing that as a worst case scenario if we don't have another variant that is really problematic by the summer, we could really be a period where we're going to say, you know, we're living with this. we can realistically be much more relaxed. and both experts agreeing the fastest way for us to get to that endemic is
11:17 pm
far more people to get vaccinated. live in oakland. zach sauce ktvu fox two news. all right, zack. thank you. alrighty pretty nice day out there again today. another warm one. we've been on the warm side down for few weeks. temperatures in the mid sixties even upper sixties yesterday we had a 76 in santa rosa temperatures as we head into tomorrow will be just like these. these are the numbers from today didn't have a record today. but we will see more of these mid sixties maybe some upper sixties and we are looking for some patchy valley fog developed, especially sacramento, modesto kind of that central southern central valley. the winds have died down enough that i think the fox would have a better shot at forming certainly over the next few nights anyway. no coastal fog to speaker but the swell is coming up. we talked about that the intervals in the last few hours of really come up, so there's a pretty big tomorrow. like i said, mavericks will be breaking it will be a story. i mean, it's going to be good surf day,
11:18 pm
actually, but it's gonna be big. i said, please be careful. we go to the coast and the best thing to do is stay off of rocks. you know any any kind, especially sapping the marin headlands or somewhere up at the you know, by rodeo beach or some of those places because those intervals sweat sets will come up and just wipe it right off the rock. overnight lows are going to be right there where they are now about in the thirties. upper thirties low forties like this, 39 99, a livermore forecast highs tomorrow like they were today. so really nice day and with really nice weather. people want to go to the beach. so if you do be very, very careful, next 48 hours out there next two days and then for us, we're just waiting on the rain. rain shows up. looks like early in february . so we've got a full week of nothing. some indications this week will be clouds moving in thursday and friday. that's the beginning of some change. i'll see you back here a little bit. all right. thank you, bill. changes coming to the iconic castro theater in san francisco . but not everyone is happy about what the future may bring . the owners have brought in a new operator with plans to

11:20 pm
it's the last of its kind showing movies. while some fear that theater could transform into more of a music venue, the new operators have said publicly they intend to support films and festivals, along with music, comedy and lectures. in december , the castro hosted the premiere of the matrix resurrections. attracting throngs of fans. one business that benefited welcomes changes that bring more people because of the spillover effect . it will bring more revenue to small businesses. that are suffering here and the. neighborhood as many theaters struggle to survive financially . people recognize change is needed here for the castro to remain financially viable. they simply hope the old and new can coexist in the most important thing is that this spirit theater stays alive and as part of the community demonstrators say so far, the owners and operators have failed to properly communicate their intentions. so they are asking
