probable case of monkeypox in the bay area. the patient had travelled to a location with an outbreak and did not have any close contacts in san francisco while potentially contagious. if confirmed, it would be at least the fifth case in california. more than 20 have been identified nationwide. monkeypox is rarely seen outside of africa, but cases have recently been reported in more than 20 countries. it spreads through intimate contact and bodily fluids. people infected with monkeypox usually experience fevers, headaches, pains, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes along with a painful rash or blisters that generally last two to four weeks. on to the fire watch, and crews in vacaville are mopping up a brush fire that burned about 15 areas in the area of lagoon valley park.
forward progress has been stopped. no injuries or damage reported. let's take you outside right now. cold, foggy start to the weekend. and there's even someainading w. that's according to first alert meteorologist paul hagen. you've been tracking this wet weather tonight. >> we have a few showers trying to hit the ground already this evening. north of the golden gate. there's very little that has been reaching the ground. it's been evaporating. but santa rosa did report a light rain shower. just a few light showers or sprinkles. the bulk is off to our northwest. more rain being aimed at the northern coast and up to oregon and washington. we'll see the best chance of showers, a chance through the north bay tomorrow afternoon. best chance is going to hold off into tomorrow night into the first half of sunday, by sunday afternoon we are going to be drying out. it's not going to be a drought buster, but at this point, we'll
take every drop we can get. >> sounds good. it is just after 11:00. and if one bay area lawmaker gets his way, the bars could soon be open for five more hours. kpix 5's sara donchey on the push for a later last call and the push back. >> reporter: in the post lockdown era, christian knows that people might need a cocktail pick me up. so what about grabbing a late-night drink after 2:00 a.m.? >> for the businesses that's a nightclub or something, i think that's an excellent idea. i think the nightclubs have been suffering really hard due to the pandemic. >> reporter: that's exactly what is proposed with senate bill 930, that would allow seven cities to allow bars to serve
drinks until 4:00 a.m. scott wiener pushed for something similar in 2018, but it was shot down by governor brown. but there are renewed calls to send bars a financial leave line. >> many are wondering how they're going to pay their bills. this gives us an opportunity to bring san francisco bars an increase. >> personally, i wouldn't do that for this particular business. for me, i think a lot about labor. i think a lot about security. you know, there's a lot of, you know, interesting activity that happens after 2:00 a.m. >> reporter: some public safety advocates have pushed back, including a sacramento-area dad whose 21-year-old son was hit and killed by a drunk driver going 110 miles per hour. >> it's insane thinking that letting people drink another two
hours until 4:00 a.m. is good for the public. >> reporter: but some say pushing the public out at 2:00 a.m. causes its own issues, that a 4:00 a.m. would allow them to more time. the indoor mask mandate is back in alameda county. one local expert says it might be wise for the rest of us to follow suit. especially with so many home test results going unreported. >> we should definitely be masking indoor at this point. there's a lot of virus circulating. and of course the numbers that are official are not the actual numbers. probably two, three, even more times what the actual numbers are. >> tonight, the cdc says five bay area counties are considered
to have a high level of community risk. marin, napa and sonoma. some will be living at a b.a.r.t. station. a pair of towers will be put up at two sites. >> reporter: the seven storey buildings will go in the parking lot of two b.a.r.t. stations, one at ashby. it will bring more than 3,000 units, but many neighbors are concerned. andy lindsey, who lives right across the street from the north berkley b.a.r.t. station along with many of his neighbors have this seen in their yards that read neighbors not towers. their concern is that they would have to live right next to a 12-storey building. >> i think it's really scarey. >> reporter: the berkley city
council voted for a seven-story building. this is a big step to address the housing issues in the community. >> we have a housing emergency. a particular need for housing that is deeply affordable fornmt >> rte t mor says at least 35% will be affordable housing and this is the best use of the expansive parking lots at the b.a.r.t. stations. >> the past four year we've been working with b.a.r.t. to plan for housing at these two parking lots. we think land should be better used for housing rather than housing cars. >> reporter: but many residents disagree. >> problem isn't lack of housing. it's lack of affordable housing. >> reporter: their keconcerns range from a shadow it would create to a traffic nightmare as b.a.r.t. users scramble to find
street parking. >> people can drive here and park. all of that parking is going to be gone. and they're making an assumption that the people moving in will not have cars. >> reporter: the mayor doesn't expect shovels in the ground for several more year but hopes the project will be completed in ten. kpix 5. >> live look at the golden gate bridge where the group moms demand action will hold a walk at 11:30 torrow. urged to wear orange. students walked out to demand action in washington . we have power in our hearts. >> and a live look at capitol hill where the house could vote as early as next week on an extensive gun control package,
that includes banning high-capacity magazines and raising the age to buy a semi-automatic rifle from 18 to 2 21. but right now they face odds in the evenly-split senate. the gay chorus has been lifting spirits for decades. >> you've got to see the depth of empathy, the strength of our community. >> a double dose of bad news for tesla. why ceo elon musk and his employees have reason to be nervous tonight. and gas prices hit another record high tonight. experts weighing in on whether

about what that felt like. >> reporter: the 64-year-old second tenor recalls the feeling all too well. were you part of the chorus during a time when aids was still an unknown. >> yes, yes, yes. >> reporter: what was that like? >> um, terrifying. you would come to rehearsal one week, and the next week so-and-so would be gone. you know, they passed away during that week. >> reporter: the chorus lost more than 300 members to aid the since 1981. this song honors those who died. vocalists turn one by one, a symbol of each life, rehearsing the song decades later still makes clint cry. >> it brings it all back and makes it all so very real. >> reporter: but the songs also remind clint of the chorus' resilience. coming together in comfort and courage. >> you've got to see the depth of empathy, the strength of our
community. >> reporter: and the more they felt the government and outside world brush them aside the more they stuck side by side. >> you are helping people try to learn. you are helping people figure out how they want to die. and then you have to go on. >> reporter: they finally determined they needed to sing hope and joy. today the chorus rises again, bringing hope from the darkness of the covid pandemic. >> we get letters from people who were contemplating suicide, but the song they heard on one of our albums helped them see themselves in a different way. >> reporter: and as they've returned to in-person concerts, clint and the chorus are more determined than ever to help spread joy, hope and pride if their 44th year. ch >> the next chorus is a farewell

outside chance of a few showers. showers moving into san francisco around the time the sun comes up sunday morning. it's going to have a hard are tareer time making its way inland. we'll see clearing skies as we head into sunday afternoon. it's not going to be a completely gray day either. by higher amounts we mean maybe a little more than a quarter inch of rainfall. most of us will be seeing a few hundreds of an inch. barely more than a trace in the east bay. i wouldn't count on much more than a trace. there is the fog rolling in already. temperatures are mostly in the 50s. still 61 in concord. light rain showers in santa rosa at the top of the hour, those
