5:30 am
the tumbling stock futures. we are monitoring worsening conditions this morning. good morning. it is friday october 2. i am michelle griego. >> i am len kiese. we begin with the breaking news from the white house, president trump tested positive for coronavirus. >> anne makovec brings us the latest from the live news desk. >> reporter: wild news over night, we are getting a lot of reaction. let's go live to the white house where president and first lady are quarantining now, massive contact tracing project underway. the president has been around a lot of high profile people including his opponent in the presidential race. we heard from the white house that the vice president and his wife tested negative. let's get the latest on the rest of the reaction. i can't even imagine the mood around there right now with all of this news coming out. >> reporter: fast moving
5:31 am
developments overnight. as you mentioned, the newest information this hour is that the vice president and second lady have both tested negative this morning. now overnight, a senior administration official told cbs news that the president is in good spirits. the first lady tweeted they are feeling good. but this news is obviously sending shock waves around the country and really around the world as reaction continues to pour in. the president made this huge announcement before 1:00 a.m. eastern time that he and the first lady tested positive. this came shortly after we learned that one of his closest aides, hope hicks, tested positive after coming down with symptoms later in the day on wednesday. she had traveled with the president to multiple events this week including tuesday's debate in cleveland and then a
5:32 am
rally in minnesota. the president confirmed she tested positive to fox news last night. >> i just went for a test, and we'll see what happens. who knows? she tested positive. i just went out with a test. we spent a lot of time. the first lady just went with a test also. whether we quarantine or whether we have it, i don't know. >> reporter: obviously since then, we learned that the president and first lady did test positive. overnight we received a memo from the white house physician saying the president and first lady are doing well at this time. he went onto say rest assured, i expect the president to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering. this note does not make any mention of a time line or possible symptoms. but we know for today, the
5:33 am
president's schedule has been wiped of all public events obviously. the only thing that remains on that schedule is a phone call about covid-19 support for vulnerable seniors. as you mentioned, massive contact tracing effort is now underway. the vice president again, we learned this morning, has tested negative and so has white house chief of staff mark meadows. we also learned that from a senior aide. it is unclear how many people at this point may be impacted or need to be tested now because of possible exposure. >> and here we are 32 days from the election. in theory he would be quarantining, stuck at the white house for a couple weeks. what will this mean for the presidential campaign? >> reporter: that's a huge
5:34 am
question. the president was scheduled to travel to central florida today, key battleground state for a big rally there and then go to wisconsin over the weekend. all those immediate campaign events have been canceled. the president had been scheduled to battle west to battleground state of arizona. this throws entire campaign schedule in the air. that schedule remains to be seen. then keep in mind the next presidential debate was scheduled for 13 days from now. then we have the vice presidential debate next week. we have been asking the biden campaign whether he is going to now be tested, whether senator harris will be tested and a source familiar tells cbs news that biden is expected to get a covid-19 test this morning. anne. >> we are going to continue to follow that.
5:35 am
thanks for the insight live from capitol hill. we will keep our eye on all the reaction that continues to come in. len and michelle. >> thank you. this diagnosis comes two days after the presidential debate. we sat with an epidemiologist and infectious disease specialist from stanford medicine. >> we did ask if joe biden could have contracted the virus as well. >> it depends on how close in contact they came. hopefully they stayed apart as we saw on the television screen. but if they got close together and if they were close together certainly for more than 15 minute dollars, closer than six feet apart, there could be risk for infection and certainly vice president biden would have to really watch himself for symptoms and probably be tested in the next few days. >> many including presidential aides, advisers, the press were traveling with the president on air force one. >> at 6:00, we look at their
5:36 am
risk of getting covid-19. to the extreme heat and fire danger. >> meteorologist mary lee is joining us. the area is under a red flag warning again today. >> this is a big concern for us michelle and len as we are looking at the winds picking up and relative humidity values that will drop through the day. extreme fire danger, that continues, especially looking to the glass fire under a red flag warning. north bay mountains, east bay hills, diablo range, santa cruz mountains under a red flag warning that's extended now until saturday. let's talk about the heat. we have another heat advisory for today dealing with dangerously hot temperatures. we are looking at temperatures at 99 in concord, 94 san jose, 86 for oakland. the red flag warning, watching that we will see winds picking up, gusts up to 30 miles per hour especially through the afternoon and evening and
5:37 am
relative humidity levels dropping throughout the day. let's go live to the glass fire. unfortunately weather conditions are about to get worse for firefighters. >> reporter: this seems to be the calm before the storm for sure. we are in the napa valley keeping an eye on the fire that continues to burn out of control. there are two areas of concern. not north of the town of calistoga and to the south where we are live now. this is the scene behind axr winery napa valley. this is two miles north of the town of st. helena. a moment ago we saw firefighters wetting the vegetation. beyond this front line of plants here is a smouldering fire that's coming down the hill. a short time ago the flames were much taller but seemed to have died down now. every now and then you can hear a crackle of fire, embers
5:38 am
stumbling down. this is very much a concern as the firefighters try to keep the flames from creeping closer to the main structure. i was taking that about 1:00 a.m. this morning at 1326 tucker road. by the time firefighters got to the location flames were several stories tall and had consumed the rear of the home. we head to the north of town where overnight crews are trying to keep the fire from jumping highway 29 in a robert lewis stephenson state park. it looks like the winds are calm and fire is low at this location. multiple fire crews are keeping a watch full eye on it. this will likely be where cal fire directs resources later today. the fear is that it will cause spotting on the other side of the freeway and that's where we find douglas wright. he pulled hundreds of feet of hose connected to a swimming pool. he is prepared to defend his home of more than 30 years.
5:39 am
>> we don't know what's going to happen. this year has been really crazy as you well know and everybody knows. there are fires everywhere. >> last report the fire is nearing 59,000 acres, 5% containment. this red flag warning remains in effect until 6:00 p.m. tonight. we take a look at the roads. i want to give you an overview of the map to show you all the closures in effect due to the glass fire, parts of 29, 128, highway 12 still remain shut down because of this. 29 between deer park and napa county line, 29 at bradford road, west bound 128 at tubs lane. you will find the closures. we have a major trouble spot south bound 101, all lanes shut done from petaluma boulevard north to east washington due to a deadly accident. >> thank you. the national unemployment rate dropped to just below 8%
5:40 am
in september and president trump's positive covid-19 test is having a ripple effect on the markets this morning. diane king hall joins us now from new york with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that right there is the focus. wall street is on edge following news that president trump and first lady tested positive for covid-19. futures took a tumble. they're still under pressure. european markets are also lower. oil prices are also sliding on news of the president contracting covid-19. employers boosted hiring again in september. according to the labor department companies added 661,000 workers last month. the number was weaker than expected but the unemployment rate fell to 7.9% which was
5:41 am
better than expected. amazon pulling merchandise from the site promoting the proud boys. products began popping up with words "stand back" and "stand by" after president trump used the words when referring to the group. we hear there is a new survey that reveals how we really feel about shopping this thanksgiving. tell me about that. >> people are not too keen on it. 76% of consumers said retailers should be closed on the holiday. more than half cited desire to give employees a well deserved day off. companies get it. you are seeing more companies say they are going to be closed on thanksgiving. >> this year, yeah. it's a different year. i am sure a lot of people will be shopping online. retailers are closed. that means shoppers are staying home with their families as well. >> that's a good thing. >> we will see you again when the stock market opens up at
5:42 am
6:30. 5:41. coming up on kpix5 and streaming on cbsn bay area. >> count down to election day. why one county
5:43 am
5:44 am

5:45 am
supporters. during this week's debate president trump urged people to watch polling stations "very carefully." the regular star of voters told us that's not a problem. because elections are intended to be open and transparent. anyone who registers can go into the ballot processing areas. >> there are lines on the ground where they have to stay within a certain area from what they're doing. at the can't get close enough where they see signatures. >> robots help with ballot counting and observers can stand in the area and watch what's happening. >> election staff can call a hot line number or 911 if trouble develops. looking live at san francisco now where starting today a new outdoor voting center will be open. it will allow voters to cast ballots in person under a huge tent at civic center.
