12:08 pm
they feel working out. i felt safe for a while. now, to be honest with you. it is nice to kind of have this, you know, showing proof of vaccination come off, but i think the biggest day that felt safe is like what everyone kind of started taking off their backs and they start getting comfortable. i think that was the big opening moment. and now this is just more symbolic than anything. these mandates have been going back and forth for two years, but now cases are down and vaccination rates are high. that has 24 hour fitness, even getting back to actually being open for 24 hours. we've gone through lots of changes, but everyone's kept a positive attitude. and it reallyl been t. rules are cha and restaurants to both in san francisco and berkeley, which has business owners excited. this is ceremonial in some ways, but it's a big deal, and it feels like a huge load off of our shoulders and we're so ready to get back to business as usual. another big changes happening inside the classroom.

12:40 pm
as codis, but lab workers occasionally still got hits in the quality assurance database. that weren't recently enough to be from contamination, and they still reported those two investigators chief bill scott said he's discovered 17 profiles that were matched in that database. 11 of them were from rape kits. he said at last week's police commission meeting that he doesn't believe any of those cases lead to an arrest. we own this era. we own it. um and we will make sure that this doesn't happen again with guardrails that have been put in place this week, boudin sponsored statewide legislation that would bar any california crime lab from keeping rape kit dna in a database that's unrelated to the sexual assault. but even with all that's changed , the woman at the center of this case said she will still have trouble trusting law enforcement. now that she's filed a legal claim. the next step is a lawsuit. the woman said she's going to continue pushing to hold the police department accountable.
