6:07 pm
remainder, and why now. lyanne: i think the message the health department wants to convey here is, in case you have any doubts, in case you're wondering, we are not requiring students or staff to wear our mask. but they say that as long as the state safety measures continue to be in place, covid is something we have to learn to live with, that is what they are saying. at the same time, health officials are saying, don't let your guard down. the state health department believes, quote, "california schools can manage this disease in sustainable and adaptive manners. that includes keeping up with vaccinations, testing, and the continued use of air filters at schools. >> last fall we purchased thousands of portable air cleaners for our classrooms and schools. we will continue to monitor those, change the filters if needed, and following health guidance so that students can learn in person. lyanne: san francisco unified and other school districts in the bay area lifted the mask
6:08 pm

6:14 pm
supports and vocally supported recently on an ad in florida where he slammed that state and that state's government for not being up into the lgbtq communities and other things? larry: is it going to hurt him long-term? looks like he has bigger political inspirations. phil: i wouldn't say it hurts him in the sense of getting arrested for drunk driving, or hurt him in the sense of being impeached, but it is a reinforcement of the perception of gavin newsom that he says one thing and he does another. more specifically tells you to do one thing and he does another. we first saw it in the legendary visit to the "french laundry," which like it or not has defined him in part nationally. he is a charismatic and forward-thinking guy that could go places, but he also has this part of him to make news whether he likes it or not, especially on slow news days
6:15 pm
when we pick it up and the nation picks it up. larry: do all roads lead back to the french laundry for governor newsom? phil: once you have an image like that, he went to one of the most exclusive restaurants for a party when he was telling everyone else to stay away, even though he followed the protocols, it is the image. like it or not, the first impression lasts. do all roads lead back there? no but all, hunched lines do, and that could be worse. karina: let's turn to some local politics. where is san francisco with replacing chesa boudin as district attorney? any signs on who might be chosen? phil: mayor london breed is spending time at city hall interviewing candidates and talking to constituent groups. she is looking for somebody who cannot only run the office but has prosecutorial experience. she is also looking for someone who could get reelected in the
6:16 pm
next time around and that gets down to about four or five candidates, among them the san francisco supervisor and former deputy da of contra costa county. we have got brooke jenkins, former homicide head here in san francisco. judge eric fleming. and nancy, prior to district attorney she was a candidate. we will see how it shakes down. whoever goes ahead, they will be in the spotlight. larry: the investment in a couple of days? phil: i believe it will be there tomorrow or friday. larry: thank you, phil. karina: there is a growing demand for vaccines and tests not for coronavirus, for monkeypox. four local counties have possible or confirmed cases -- santa cruz, santa clara, alameda and san francisco. the city has the highest number, 40. and there are concerns that there are enough vaccines. reporter melanie woodrow has a

>> the first day alone be received 500 calls and have more than 300 individuals nor waiting list. in order to best triage those who are calling in, we are at this time only able to really help those who have been exposed or believe they have been exposed. melanie: the vaccine supply is controlled at the federal level, which in turn supplies each state. >> we are pushing the san francisco aids foundation to get at least 1000 doses in the next 30 days. melanie: he says the san francisco aids foundation is uniquely positioned to reach communities who may be at higher risk for monkeypox and so in ways that are affirming and compassionate. >> i am urging everyone not to stigmatize this disease. right now it is in one population, but in the arc of monkeypox, it affects all segments of the population equally. melanie: in san francisco, melanie woodrow, abc 7 news. karina: monkeypox is rarely fatal. the most obvious symptom is a
