show proof of a negative covid test 72 hours prior to the festival after the experience like to like know that everybody is like vaccinated or tested negative this festival generates over 70 million dollars in economic activity for the city of san francisco tonight behind me. you see 85 local restaurants benefiting from that economic boost. we can generate in just one weekend. equivalent of maybe one or two months of sales this weekend. also meant small pop-ups like smish smash hot exposure as far as patty's alone that we've smashed over 700 and i have over 3,000 patties just for the three-day. it yeah, i think i feel like we're gonna run out but i don't know and that's a good problem to have in san francisco loose peña abc 7 news. and along with outside lands, it's of course halloween this sunday and we want to go to abc 7 news. biologist sandhya patel with a
look at the forecast for a lot of weekend fund sandy. yeah. absolutely. it's going to be a great weekend for outdoor activities. and for all the fun that's happening dan. it's beloudierol a osi lomorrow 65 degrees, but once you get moving to the music, who cares mostly cloudy on sunday mid 60s as well and for trick-or-treaters dry. expected on halloween not to worry. yes, it'll be irresistible and there will be some spooky cool conditions. no tricks just treats though. the temperature is going from the 60s to the 50s and 60s. so if you are going out you'll want to dress in layers underneath those costumes. i'll be back with a look at the forecast which includes brain in our future dan. okay, sandy. thank you masks will come off on monday at most marin county businesses and venues the exceptions are high risk places, like hospitals and private businesses that choose to keep a mask policy. marin is the first bay area county to reach the benchmarks
to unmask including a vaccination rate above 80% it and san francisco are the only local counties currently in the yellow or moderate category of spread. but also monday alameda and contra costa counties are relaxing mass rules for a small number of cases like gyms and offices where everyone is fully vaccinated the city of berkeley is also making the change. all right tonight's other big story pfizer's vaccine authorized by the fda for emergency use in children ages 5 to 11. cdc authorization could come as soon as tuesday abc 7 news reporter melanie woodrow has a look at the changes that will result as a result of today's announcement. the fda says the covid-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. sold will be administered as a two-dose primary series three weeks apart, but will be a lower dose than what is used for individuals 12 years old and up as a mother and as a physician, i know parents caregivers school staff. children have been waiting for
today's authorization in the us covid-19 cases in children 5 through 11 years old make up 39% of cases in individuals younger than 18 years old parents and guardians can rest assured that we conducted a comprehensive and rigorous evaluation of the data on the vaccine safety and effectiveness, but a recent kaiser family foundation poll found that three in 10 parents say they will definitely not get their five to 11 year old vaccinated some parents are going to be hesitant about vaccinating this age group, but that was true for adults at the beginning of the pandemic dr. george rutherford is a ucsf professor of epidemiology. i think we'll see a much more robust uptake here in in the bay area and in california another kaiser family foundation poll found that long-term effects serious side effects and impacts on fertility are among top concerns parents have about vaccinating their five to 11 year old child. there's no evidence that there is an effect an adverse effect
on fertility. i would encourage people to get their children vaccinated as quickly as they can. i think it'll go a long way towards getting to herd immunity and getting real lasting disease control the initial 15 million doses are expected to start shipping out of pfizer's manufacturing plant within 24 hours vaccinations will start once the cdc signs off on specific recommendations likely next week. no any woodrow abc 7 news and we checked in with local county health and hospital officials today. most are waiting to release guidance on how they'll distribute shots until the cdc gives their sign off abc 7 news reporter amanda del castillo spoke with bay area parents tonight who explained their hope or hesitancy when it comes to their kids in the covid-19 vaccine. parenting in the pandemic protection and prevention have been top of mind for parents globally for the last 20 months and as the covid-19 vaccine for kids moves closer to reality parents around the bay area are shifting focus to what this means for their young children
for as disposo and as nine-year-old son ronan there is hope emergency authorization couldn't come soon enough obviously with him being a lot more aware. sometimes he'll ask questions about covid and how he could be protected. i think even with the shot. he he wants a shop esposo says it'll expand the family's ability to travel and he says most importantly offer the ability to be near older relatives without risking exposure. that's part of the motivation for clarice jr. as well. we can visit grandparents even great-grandparents to be able to just be mask free her daughter alyssa turns five in november and while junior is looking forward to that extra layer of protection. she's going to wait wanting to first hear about kids reactions to the shot myself as well as a few friends and family members. we did feel a few of the symptoms. so i think that's what i'm
of waiting to see for mom amanda. say ha. there is hesitancy. i will not be the first one in line. thank you. her concern is whether potential adverse effects of the vaccine will outweigh the symptoms of the virus. i'm a believer. and i appreciate the work, but there's just not enough data for me to follow through at this moment different approaches though all agree the safety of their children during the ongoing pandemic is paramount. i'm amanda del castillo abc 7 news if you have questions remember about covid-19 vaccine mandates policies or what's happening where you live? you can ask our vaccine team. just go to abc 7 news.com slash vaccine and click on blue box. you see there? left moving on police are investigating a shooting involving two students at mcclyman's high school in west oakland a teenage girl was wounded another girl apparently pistol whipped. it happened at about 2:45 at a corner store on market and 26th
