sewer sheds who are infected with monkeypox. >> reporer south bay, peninsula, and san francisco among other places. >> the locations with the most frequent detection of monkeypox dna and the highest concentrations in our area have been in san francisco county. >> wastewater really helps us know what the mulgd of disease is. >> reporter: dr. peter chin-hong is an infectious disease expert at ucsf. as with covid, he says wastewater surveillance for monkeypox is a crucial diagnostic tool in understanding how the virus is spreading in the bay area. >> people are not going out and getting testing or sending tests. so therefore wastewater becomes even more important. >> do you think we will see more monkeypox showing up in the wastewater? >> we will 100% see monkeypox showing up in the wastewater in larger quantities over time. there's a lot of unknown spread in the community. >> reporter: over the past few days, the concentration of
monkeypox dna in the wastewater has remained relatively flat. but over the past month, the frequency of detection and concentration are trending upwards. >> monkeypox is infecting people in different parts of the bay area, and it's just not a small group in a very select population. >> reporter: according to the latest cdc figures, new york has the highest number of confirmed monkeypox cases in the united states. california is next on the list. at stanford, max darrow, kpix 5. >> we will continue to bring you the latest monkeypox coverage on-air, streaming on cbs news bay area, and online at kpix.com. in the past 30 minutes, the b.a.r.t. board voted to bring back the transit system's mask mandate. b.a.r.t. only just lifted the mandate about two weeks ago. the panel voted 6-2 to bring it back until october 1st amid the ongoing spike in covid cases. and in southern california, l.a. county has dodged another round of indoor masking requirements.
health officials considered bringing back the mandates after a summer spike, but today said that there has been a steady decline since last week. in just the past three hours, san francisco slammed the brakes on federally mandated patient transfers from laguna honda hospital. this comes after four patients died within days of their transfers from the embattled facility. laguna honda lost its medicare and medicaid funding back in april after several violations. the feds ordered all patients out by september, so the city could fix the problems. but the mayor argued many patients are simply too frail to be moved, and today the government agreed to an indefinite pause. the city of fremont has seen a huge spike in people living on the streets. its homeless population rose by nearly 70% in just the past three years compared with just over 25% in the three years prior. city leaders blame the pandemic and a lack of affordable housing, and so does one woman

mill historic park. >> it was really scary the first few days for me because i was sleeping on the street. and then i got accepted into this program. >> reporter: the program is fremont safe sleeping program, which registers people's cars and gives them safe places to park at area churches. and those churches also offer assistance, like judith's camp stove. >> i got it from the st. vincent's depaul salvation store down there. i got a voucher from corpus christi church over here in niles, a $25 voucher, and it was $30, and i happened to have $5, and i got it. >> reporter: judith says the situation obviously isn't ideal, but she's found community until she can get back on her feet. >> it's scary, but i just, you know, i got to do it for myself. this is my new start, and i'm going to run with it. >> reporter: in fremont, andria borba, kpix 5. still to come, four killed and six others injured. we're learning more about a horrific crash on a dangerous stretch of roadway in rio vista. how alcohol may have played a

san jose's reid-hillview airport was in the spotlight on capitol hill today. a santa clara county supervisor and mayoral candidate cindy chavez testified considering a national ban on leaded aviation fuel. the panel heard the testimony about the harmful effects of airborne lead on communities near general aviation airports due to the use of leaded fuel. representative ro khanna says 20,000 airports still use leaded fuel, and many are located in communities of color or low-income neighborhoods. the hearing cited a santa clara study that found elevated levels of lead in children who live within a mile and a half of reid-hillview, which prompted the county to ban the sale of leaded fuel at the airport last year. >> hundreds of thousands of aircraft flight every day with leaded fuel over communities across this country. we know it's poisonous. we know we have to stop it.
and the way i know we know that is we stopped it for trucks and cars. >> some pilots who fly into reid-hillview do still use leaded fuel obtains at other airports. overall, though, about 90% use unleaded. ahead-on crash in rio vista left four people dead and six others hospitalized. it happened along highway 12 at somerset drive last night at around 8:15. police have looking into whether dr drunk driving may have played a role. three people around 20 areas old were in a honda accord going westbound. police say it went off the roadway, overcorrected and hit an eastbound chevy suburban head-on. no one in the honda survived. >> this stretch of highway has been notorious for decades. i've been working in this county for 26 years and this is heor ts theefs the didind opendhe honda, but
it is not yet clear if that is what caused the crash. an 11-year-old boy has been arrested after admitting he set off a three-acre wildfire in pacifica while playing with fireworks. the fire broke out yesterday in the 600 block of roberts road. when crews arrived, the boy told officers he was responsible for the fire and was arrested. later released to a parent, though. the fire was contained in about two hours. no evacuations were necessary. now to the remarkable story -- i love this one. it's of a steer that was saved twice by a north bay family. >> it's a story of a family with a huge heart and the community that helped reunite them with their beloved pet. >> he's extremely attached to my daughter, and so the bond that they have together is really, really sweet. >> maybe i can skate around with layla. >> reporter: kerry green is talking about paige, her daughter, and their pet steer,
nash. nash was first rescued as a calf by kerry's father after his mother died on a cattle ranch. life's been good. they found him a home now on a cattle ranch. but last week, nash was mistakenly rounded up and set off to auction, and that set off a frantic search. >> tons of phone calls, lots of tears, very, very sad and scary. lots of people telling us they didn't think we'd ever find him. it was very disheartening. my daughter was absolutely distraught. >> reporter: word of the search for nash gained traction on social media. money was even raised for information on the 8-month-old calf. >> i was getting hundreds of texts. >> reporter: turns out nash was purchased by a cattle rancher in dixon. >> it was actually a miracle. he was one of hundreds and hundreds of cows, and we got him back. >> reporter: now nash has a new home, a woman who followed the story, offered her santa rosa farm to shelter nash. in exchange, kerry's dad is
building new fencing so nash won't have to be rescued a third time. >> i sit out here and talk to nash and tell him how happy he's made everybody. >> i just have a lot of faith in people, and i have a really great community around me. it was really an awesome story about people helping each other. >> i love that story. it just warms your heart to see that cow back in family's loving arms. it just was amazing. >> he seems to be rather affectionate towards the camera too. i think he knows what he's doing. >> i think he knows he's very loved and he definitely is enjoying all of the love from other people. >> and getting free apples as well. we should all be so lucky. >> we've got some monsoonal moisture making its way not just into the bay area but through most of california, which can be potentially troublesome because not only does it make it feel a little bit muggy outside, but these types of setups can lead to the threat of some pop-up
showers, even some thunderstorms. we don't want cloud-to-ground lightning when all the vegetation is so dry. but you need a trigger nearby to start those storms. we don't have that. let's take a look at the next several days. more surging up across california as we head through the weekend and into early next week. so that somewhat muggy feel to the atmosphere really isn't going to go anywhere for the next several days. just kind of get used to it. it's not going to get much worse but not going to improve either. some of the moisture by earler next week is going to be siphoned off from this system. this is a tropical storm right now. by early next week, this is going to be hurricane frank. the bulk of the moisture is going to be centered around the storm itself, not moving up towards us. we're going to steal a little bit to reinforce the moisture already in place. in terms of the lightning threat, we can also simulate that with our forecast models and the good news is it's not showing much activity at all in terms of the lightning density, the number of cloud-to-ground strikes tomorrow afternoon.
maybe a little bit more by saturday, mainly in the high sierra and the mountains of northern california and the same pattern on sunday with just a little more activity. they don't want any cloud-to-ground lightning strikes in these parts either so we're going to have to watch for new fire starts there. bu fog so dense already. temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s around the bay. it's going to be gray for the next few days around the bay and along the coast. further inland, mid and high level clouds searched with that moisture. temperatures, upper 60s and low 70s farther inland which is nice for a july evening. the fog is going to make a big push into the inland valleys by tomorrow morning. it's going to be stubborn around the bay and the coast. temperatures tonight dropping down to the mid to upper 50s, which is normal for this time of year. highs tomorrow within three degrees or so on either side of what's average. near 60 along the coast. 70s around the south end of the bay with 80s in the santa clara
valley. 82 in san jose. mostly 80s in the inland and the east bay. the hottest spots in the low 90s. maybe a few degrees below average for san francisco and oakland. mainly in the 60s there. lower half of the 80s for most of the north bay. fog might be a bit more stubborn in the napa valley. temperatures there in the mid-70s. the extreme heat, though, that's not too far to the north. mendocino county and lake county at or above 100 degrees. temperatures don't change much over the next few days. just kind of wobbling around by a degree or two in san francisco, oakland, and san jose. so it's just a normal late july and early august pattern. a little more cloud cover is going to be noticeable even for inland parts of the bay area as we head into early next week with that monsoonal moisture but t . along the coast, temperatures hovering right around 60 degrees through most of next week and probably most of next month. i'll have an update at 11:00. >> paul, thank you. >> p alameda are working to build positive relationships with kids on the water. it's a new program, casting with
cops. it's for 6 to 15-year-olds. officers teach the kids how to bait, cast, and even hook and even give water safety tips. >> it's just been a really great platform to spend quality time with kids. >> great idea. officers say building relationships within the community is a critical component to public safety. well, the 49er faithful out supporting their team at practice. what fans are most excited about this season. and join us weekday mornings at 7:00 for live local news streaming on cbs news bay area. you can find us on pluto tv channel 3350 and on any platform
