6:02 am
near the coast. we will talk about all the changes in the forecast in terms of our air quality and the first day of fall in the forecast, that's coming up in just a few minutes. >> thank you, kari. starting today you will need proof of vaccination to enter many businesses in contra costa county. today in the bay's bob riddell is live in san ramon with which businesses will require you to show proof. >> reporter: starting today if you want to go to the gym like the one behind me here in san ramon, you will have to show proof of vaccination to get inside. it's a new rule implemented by the county starting today. it applies for indoor businesses like gyms, or dance studios, yoga places and those sorts of places, places where you will breathe more heavily during the exercise, and it includes places like restaurant, bars, and other entertainment venues. starting november 1st, workers
6:03 am
in these businesses must show proof of vaccination or test negative each week for covid. the health department points out among the 35 people that died during the last week of august and first week of september, almost 96% of those people were unvaccinated. there are other cities in the bay area that have this proof of vaccination requirement. berkeley, you need to have a proof of vaxx for many indoor businesses, and workers must be vaxxed or tested weekly. san jose has a proof of vaxx for people in any city-owned business. we have more details for you. berkeley workers now know when they will have to receive covid

vaccinations or pace potentially losing their job. the city enacted a november 15th deadline. workers can claim medical or religious exemptions and will have to report their vaccination status by october 15th. this week was supposed to be the first week for covid booster shots. instead, the fda has yet to authorize thoughts for any vaccine except for those whose immune systems are compromised. boosters will increase the antibodies. the cdc could add clarity this week on who would be able to get one. >> they add guidance to physicians and patients, and so for example, they might say -- they might enumerate the kinds of severe conditions that would qualify somebody for a booster. >> regardless of booster shots, health experts assure everybody
6:05 am
vaccines still provide strong poe techtion. covid-19 is front and center for national and international leaders today. today in the bay's chris pallone is live. what is expected to happen today with the fda? >> reporter: marcus, the highly anticipated decision on booster shots whether to approve them or not for people over 65 is expected from the fda later on today. you might remember that panel meeting on friday where health leaders looked at the evidence, and the panel of outside experts did recommend boosters for americans 65 and older and those considered high risk, and pfizer did not provide information of the safety for a third vaccine for those 16 and older. meanwhile president biden is expected to host a virtual covid summit for u.n. leaders. his plan is to send more
6:06 am
vaccines around the world. he is calling for cooperation to beat the virus. the president is calling for a goal to vaccinate 70% of the world's people by september, and there has been criticism in some circles of richer nations for somewhat hoarding vaccines. for example, here in the u.s. we have 55% of people vaccinated, and in places like haiti or tanzania, that number is less than 1%. back to you. >> thank you. president biden is facing trouble in iowa according to polling from the des moines register. one-third of iowans approve of president biden is doing. his handling of afghanistan received only 22% support.

6:08 am
public's help now to help find him. investigators here on the ground in florida searched most of the day yesterday in the swampy terrain trying to look for any clues or evidence of brian laundrie. his parents said that's where he last said he was going on tuesday of last week and they have not seen him since. former fbi agents say this could be an attempt to throw them off. >> from day one brian laundrie has been doing nothing but cover his tracks and actions. >> when the autopsy confirmed petito's body yesterday, laundrie's parents put out a statement saying may gabby rest in peace. >> there will be more on the "today" show, and that's right

6:33 am
date of january 3rd 2022 for students to complete the investigations, and that mandate does allow for medical and religious exemptions, and piedmont has not set a date of when vaccinations must be completed if that measure is alive -- approved, excuse me. not all the families are in favor of getting their child a covid shot, but one family member we spoke with said this is the only way to beat the virus. >> it spares the risks and it's the best over all option where it's a win-win. >> reporter: so far contra costa district has not set a date when they would vote on the measure.

6:35 am
change with the two key points in the pfizer booster vaccine, and the question about boosters for the pfizer vaccine. cdc panel is meeting this morning and soon afterwards the fda could make its decision. what we have been hearing is some people are going out anyway before it's authorize eyesed to get the booster. >> this is not the situation where we want to be where people are eligible or not eligible based on which vaccine they got. this is the problem the fda is trying to manage. it would be helpful for the fda and cdc to come out with broader guidance across a range of vaccines and not limit themselves to pfizer alone. >> it's important to know that regardless of what the fda advised on the pfizer booster, it's just for the pfizer booster, and those that got johnson & johnson or moderna, they will have to wait. back to you. >> thank you.
