health after a trio of western states amended their covid policies today, let's go to ktvu southgate reporter jesse gary, who is live in san jose. with more on that announcement and reaction, jesse claudine. the change takes effect at the end of next week. san jose unified school district officials say they will fall in line with the state's updated policy. we will be aligning to the states updated guidance that masks will be strongly recommended for schools instead of required the policy change in california, oregon and washington state comes as covid case rates, hospitalizations and positivity rates have shown substantial declines by zoom public health secretary dr marc galle. ah jurisdictions, local health jurisdictions in the case, schools and school districts may decide that keep or add additional requirements beyond what the state is outlining today. santa clara county health officials have said they will
4:06 pm
also follow the states lead the california teachers association released a statement which says in part, while some students are ready to immediately remove their masks, others remain very afraid. education expert dr heather lad emir says the impact can be poor academic performance due to a split attention span. if your focus is not on the book or the math problem, but is instead on concern over the possibility that you may catch something from somebody's sitting nearby. hi it's going to be really hard to focus on the information and the ideas that you're expected to learn. at that time san jose unified will offer covid protective equipment to teachers as masking becomes a recommendation, not a requirement. for students. i think we'll have to see what the , um wet with the demand is for that we enter this next phase. we know that the next phase the future may bring future surges, new variants and california will
4:07 pm
continue to be ready and build on what we've learned so that we can keep californians safe. mask will still be required inside high transmission areas. healthcare facilities, jails mass transit, santa clara county officials say the metrics in this county have moved in such a positive or a good direction. that positive is such a good direction that tomorrow they'll be able to announce that they will make indoor masking optional. not just for people who are vaccinated, but for people who are also unvaccinated . so for everyone they believe by tomorrow metrical show they can change or update their policy where indoor masks will be optional not required. we're live in san jose this evening, jesse gary ktvu fox two news. we'll head back to you certainly really interesting to see how people respond. i know in places now where masks are not required. i still see a lot of people wearing them will be interesting to see how children and families react. yeah i still
4:08 pm
wear mine. so yeah, a lot. a lot of people are saying whether they you know whether they take it off or not. they're going to keep it on because it just makes them feel safer. and they're used to it now, and we're so used to it now. yes, exactly. all right, jesse. gary. thank you so much for that update. and the san francisco unified school district, said today. there are no plans to lift its mask rules. despite today's announcement, the district says universal indoor masking is part of a layered approach to reducing the spread of covid 19 oakland schools told us a decision will be made in the coming days. let's get some reaction now from ucsf infectious disease expert dr peter chin hung. good afternoon, doctor. hi, frank. good to have you with us. so dr hong, in your opinion, are are we ready? is it is it time? is it safe? well in terms of school masking. i think it's definitely, uh hard to see. because we're on this train. the train is moving to that destination. we're probably just have a few meters left again. it
4:09 pm
really depends on how safe people feel i can tell you the science and we can talk about the science. till there's no tomorrow but at the end of the day depends on values and help people feel. you know, every family comes from their own situation, and every district is going to look at the same science. the same numbers very differently. i think they're all going to end up at the same place. whether or not it's march 11th or very soon after, but, uh, pretty much. in a few weeks . this will not be a debate anymore because it will be at ground zero. boy that sounds good. well, the governor also lifted the mask requirement for unvaccinated students and adults as well but strongly recommends that they wear a mask. if they're indoors, do you think people will comply? it's a little bit of gray area there. i think the people who have been wearing masks will continue to do so. and frankly speaking, there wasn't really, uh, mechanism to make sure that
4:10 pm
someone was vaccinated if they weren't wearing a mass in the last few days, so the positives are think if you want to be protected, and i'm still you know, like many people wearing my mosque and a crowded indoor setting, uh, because we know what better quality master where that is probably less of an issue that in those cloth mask days and you know as a vaccine boosted person. i'm not going to go to the hospital or not going to be admitted. but it's still inconvenience to get even an infection. so that's why i'm really going to be careful and as well as not wanting to transmit it to somebody else. of course, you know, in terms of where we are. we're kind of like the beginning of december, but not quite where we were at thanksgiving time in terms of numbers in the community. well, i'm on your team, too. i think forced to have it. i'm just used to wearing it if you go into a restaurant or whatnot, so no mass as of march 12, but the
4:11 pm
governor did say that local jurisdictions may set up their own guidelines. lot of parents out there. if cdc says my kid doesn't need to wear a mask, and the school district says otherwise. that could be an issue as well, don't you think? yes definitely. i mean, i think where you're going to see a lot of strife is in the misalignment and having different groups see different things. so cdc, the county, the state, but again, i think it's just a matter of adjustment before everybody becomes a line. i thought it was interesting that u c. berkeley and l a times service. sure that just 3 61% of folks in california parents still want their kids to be mass. of course, that means that 37% of them are posted. so you're seeing this this agreement right now, before you get to the alignment, regardless of what happens, i think everybody wants. those students to be in their seats because they have been so many disruptions in
4:12 pm
california schools in the last two years. absolutely well, the first covid death in the berry it was two years ago on this very day, so we are making making a lot of progress. so some good news today and let's hope we keep heading in a good direction. dr peter chin hung from ucsf. always a pleasure. thank you for your time. thanks so much, frank. thank you. doctor. california's announcement to lift mask requirements in schools follows the cdcs lead. last week, the federal health agency released an updated guidance, saying that the majority of americans don't need to wear face coverings in school and many other indoor public places. the new recommendations now focus on hospitalization, rates and capacity unless on transmission figures show. more than 70% of americans live in places where the coronavirus poses a low or medium threat to hospitals. this is the way we need to go. i think this is taking us forward with a new direction go onto the pandemic, but we're still
4:13 pm
focusing on safety. the new guidelines recommend mass still be worn in schools in areas considered high risk for the virus. for now, all americans will still be required to wear a face covering on public transportation. and for the very latest updates on the state and local covid-19 guidelines can always go to our website ktvu .com. well, four people shot right outside of dave and buster's in concord up next what police are saying about the argument that happened inside that led to that violence also had an magazine an agonizing hour for sonny bill mother whose two year old son was abducted over the weekend woman. under arrest. more of that coming up. february fizzled, so we're hoping for a miracle march the day it will rain, the full forecast coming up on the floor forecast coming up on the floor right here on fox two. forecast coming up on the floor right herat jp morgan, the only definition of wealth that matters is yours.

4:36 pm
russian state media and had removed a network of 40 fake accounts, pages and groups that published pro russian talking points. and here to talk more about what is happening in ukraine and the sanctions that are being put into place. let's welcome in stephen fisher, the show he is a professor of political science at uc berkeley. thanks so much for joining us my pleasure. so we have these new sanctions today that are focusing focusing on the russian bank. you've described sanctions in the past of having some teeth. how big is this bite when you add these it's really big. the russian economy is in a free fall right now. the rubles in a free fall the stock market his lost an enormous portion of its value just in the last week or so. in fact, putin's oligarchs, these billionaires who these people we makes billionaires in exchange for their loyalty are hemorrhaging billions of dollars in fortunes. their yachts are racing to little island countries where they might not be seized right now all over the world. that you know the sanctions have been very
4:37 pm
effective and what's been just as effective as the whole world standing behind ukraine. moral support right now is absolutely crucial. you know, it is interesting because sanctions in general have been especially when they are first talked about before we kind of headed even into this week whether or not they were affected was being debated, but is the big difference is that the unity of the sanctions coming from the rest of the world? all these western nations, making them more effective than we've ever seen? sanctions seemingly have been yes, the union is really important and the substance of the sanctions. it's really important, in fact that the world has essentially delivered on eliminating or excluding russia from the swift system of international payments that just paralyzes the russian economy. what's more, we're taking measures to see to it that putin cannot even spend a large portion of the war chest. he's accumulated over the years for this purpose for this war. got over $600 billion in in war chest, but a lot of that is held
4:38 pm
in the west and western banks and we actually have access to those funds. you can prevent him from using them to finances. war offered. these sanctions are actually biting very hard, the military support that ukraine is getting from the west also is very important. even finland now is sending is standing anti tank weapons to ukraine. there's a flood of weapons they need more , but the fact is the support for the ukrainian resistance has been very strong and we see the russian the russian military struggling as well, and they need money to change. turn that around, and they don't have it. you know, in terms of where they go from here. i remember hearing president biden say we'll give it a month and see how these sanctions go. but it seems to be on a much faster timeline to see at that rain that they are being effective. absolutely and the fact is, is that the russian military just failing miserably . you couldn't have designed a less effective way to invade ukraine. they're invading from five different points. they're not focused on kiev, which is the main city that they want their being blown back. by ukrainian armed forces as well
4:39 pm
as volunteers. this is going very, very badly for putin and frankly, i would not be surprised to see some of us oligarchs, some of his top government officials, some of his military officials and large portions of his people. simply turn against him. only think and so in terms of what's next timeline was and really what? what is the message for the rest of the world? if this can be done to russia, it can be done if the world unites against you know something else that they that you know, there is universal, you know? resistance against i should say, what is the message? big picture? and then how long does this last until you know it doesn't look like vladimir putin could hold out any longer. that's a great question. and the answer is this is discrediting. this whole wild , ridiculous imperial venture, which couldn't possibly work. 150,000 troops are going to occupy a nation of 40 million people, including civilians under arms who don't want the russian troops there. it was a mad idea to begin with. putin's imperialism is recklessness, his
4:40 pm
whole regime of lies and disinformation. his economic model. is just, you know, it's all being challenged. now all his lies are being are being cared for the world to see. he's been telling russian troops and the russian people. they're going into d. knox. if i ukraine his troops got there. they don't know why they're there. they've been told they're they're not if i ukraine but doesn't say the swastikas. they see the people rising up against them. they had and these people are their neighbors. they don't want. they don't want to kill these people. i would be very surprised to find the military military officers not willing to engage in the kind of carpet bombing of cities that putin might have in mind next. honestly i think putin is toast. all right, well , steven fish thank you so much for your insight, and your thoughts on this is it's a situation that we continue to watch very, very closely. thanks for joining us and stay with us for updates on the crisis in ukraine will have the latest information throughout our newscast as well as on our

website ktvu .com. san jose mayor sam liccardo is proposing an into the booster shot mandate for city owned facilities right now, have you go to the facilities that includes the s, a peace center and the convention center in san jose, you have to show proof that you've had a covid booster shot. well today, i'm mornings on two. we talk live with mayor liccardo about why he thinks it's time for a change. everything is tied to the reasoning why we impose it to begin with back in december. when i announced this , of course, we were facing the beginning of a very significant surge of macron. as we've learned, of course, we've now moved beyond that. we also know . like all vaccinations. a booster doesn't lose efficacy after four or five months and so continuing to impose the same requirements, some five or six months after the booster was first made available. is obviously less than optimal. san jose city council is expected, though, to debate the mayor's proposal very soon. well, today is the deadline for the major league baseball to reach a deal
