there's a great degree of severity to it, but we really got to be careful before we make any determinations that it is less severe or really doesn't cause any severe illness comparable to delta. >> the biden administration hopes to be able to lift the new restrictions within a "reasonable period of time." hundreds of bay area businesses have shut down because of covid and all the restrictions, but for one santa clara restaurant the closure means the owners are forced to leave the country as well. kpix5's da lin explains. >> reporter: a sign alerting customers closing down for good after december 15th. for the husband and wife who run the restaurant this is more than just their livelihood. this represents their visa. el camino mongolian barbecue. >> this is our favorite place. >> reporter: in the city of santa clara. >> the food, the ambiance, the all you can eat. >> always fresh, always tasty.

from a restaurant facing backlash after employees refused to serve three san francisco police officers. workers say it was because they were intimidated by the guns the officers were carrying. the restaurant hilda and jesse has now apologized for that and said it was a teaching moment. >> this is not about us versus them. this is about, you know, someone stepped in it, did some things that were less than ideal and figuring out how do we go forward. no one's perfect and no one understands that better than the police department who deal with a lot of imperfect situations and do the best they can. >> the restaurant says it is in contact with the police department and they're working on a way to move forward. late word in, a big crash closed a major street tonight in santa clara. san tomas shut down indefinitely between scott boulevard and central expressway. avoid the area until things are cleaned up. we don't have details on the specifics of the accident, but we have new information about a

enforcement. michael george, cbs news, oxford, michigan. taking a live look at the white house where president biden is expected to announce a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 beijing olympics this week. while the move would still allow u.s. athletes to compete, no u.s. government representatives would be in attendance. the president said he'd been thinking about doing that to protest china's human rights abuses. last month's virtual summit between biden and the chinese president didn't result in any significant progress. the diplomatic boycott is designed to put more pressure on china to reform its policies before the winter games begin on february 4th. in san francisco people of all ages are now able to take filipino martial arts classes. kids taking anti-bullying classes can learn some fundamental defensive tactics. adults can learn how to defend themselves from a knife attack. this month they'll host filipino martial arts classes once a week to help raise funds

peck. >> that pretty rare wasn't reassuring enough. let's get back on track. two things to talk about, starting to get foggy tonight. let me spot like that and then talk about the rain coming our way monday. if we look at the view from our camera on treasure island, it's not bad in the city, but in the north bay it's already started to get foggy. so much so the sensor at santa rosa is recording misting happening on it. it's fog for oakland, fog for concord. another way is to put the visibility map up and look for the smallest numbers. the numbers tell you how far you can see down the road in miles. when you get down to 0.3 in santa rosa or concord, that's where you'll hit the problem spots. we've done this for the last week and a half, patchy fog certainly an issue tomorrow morning, but it will be relatively warm because in addition to the fog, we're pulling in a much higher deck of clouds that will be with us much of the day tomorrow. tomorrow will be kind of a
cloudy day. as a result, temperatures don't climb super high. we'll stay in the low to mid- 60s. you don't get the beautiful crystal clear blue sky day tomorrow, but tuesday you will. in between there will be clouds on monday. let's see where the rain comes in monday night. right there, that system gets pulled onshore. i'll put it into the high resolution forecast just to watch that. we'll slow it down. this has recently developed into more impressive looking rain than just 24 hours ago. we'll watch showers start tomorrow night north bay, work their way across the rest of the heart of the bay overnight. so you might even miss this because by the time we get to 7:00, 8:00 in the morning tuesday, it's done. it's doubtful this will have any kind of significant impact on the morning commute. however, there will still be some slick roads tuesday morning. so think about that in advance for the drive, but the rest of the day tuesday watch the clouds disappear. tuesday will be one of the
prettiest days around here in a while because this system will clear out all the haze finally. it will be great air quality. tuesday looks great. we could get 0.2-inch of rain, maybe a little less. the next system is coming from up there. that means it's going to be noticeably colder. that will be thursday's chance for rain. that will drop our daytime highs to the mid-50s which might be the most significant impact from it. if we look at futurecast, that's thursday, again early morning light rain from that, doesn't look like a significant rainmaker. it will be a better snowmaker in the sierra than rain here and the totals are pretty light. that's thursday. we'll adjust that as we get closer to it. it will mean more snow in the sierra, though. the monday system drops a little snow and then the thursday system comes in and drops a little more as well. these are not blockbuster storms, but they're at least something. it's nice to see a start. in the seven-day forecast rain
on thursday in the morning. we could have put rain here tuesday morning, but most of tuesday really is going to be a pretty day. notice the cooldown by the time we get to next week. daytime highs will be in the mid-50s. remember you've gotten so used over the last two weeks to daytime highs just going up to like almost day for most locations except for the last few days. so it will feel cooler by later this week. brian, back over to you. >> thanks, darren. during the pandemic one in five households added a pet and as folks head out of town for holiday reunions or back to the office in the new year, how are the pets going to cope? >> if you haven't already booked with a local pet sitter or boarding facility, you're probably out of luck. >> tune into our original report home alone, what you need to know when our worlds reopen and how to best help your pet tomorrow night on kpix5 news at 7:00. but still ahead tonight how bay area musicians are rallying
