san martin avenue adding to a busy ride into morgan hill. i am anne makovec at the live news desk, good news on the economy. it grew more than 33% in the last quarter and that is after a very dismal reporting the quarter before. things are moving in the right direction when it comes to that. unfortunately hundreds of thousands are still filing new unemployment claims. during the last week the number was about 750,000. it is down a little bit over the week prior. it's going to be interesting to see how the market reacts to all of this. of course that is after a terrible day yesterday. stock futures. now the dow is down. nasdaq is up, and part of that is because of very good numbers from san francisco's pinterest coming in. we are following breaking news out of france. authorities are investigating a

about $1,200 to help replace pay for folks missing work to isolate. the county in the process of securing dozens more hotels where people can go if they test positive. >> this calls upon our systems to find some real change in how we are actually responding to our communities when making sure there is not only equity but liberation. >> sonoma will find out in another couple weeks whether these are paying off enough to move out of the purple and further into reopening. the health officer blaming several huge inappropriate gatherings by residents for a recent virus surge. according to the san francisco chronical, the county could slide backwards to the purple tier next week. back to school coverage in san francisco, school officials plan to finish building assessments by early december and to be ready for potential hybrid learning by mid january. 72 elementary schools and 12 early education sites will be

and get it approved. the county knows reopening can be a personal and local decision. >> there are district school boards who have to make these decisions. they have to look at the reopening plans. they have to consider all the stakeholders in their particular districts and what their interests are. >> once kids get back into the classroom, county health will monitor the situation, look for new cases, deal with any clusters and flare ups of covid accordingly. to keep tabs on back to school plans across the bay area, head to the special section of kpix.com/backtoschool. starting monday, san francisco will begin moving more than 500 homeless people out of hotel rooms. the city currently has leased 2600 rooms for its most vulnerable. the homelessness department says the program which costs about $260 per night is no longer financially feasible. officials say the plan is to connect all residents with some kind of housing or more
