better yeah, we're excited about getting some rain to say >>other nature she's already going to be giving us a solid start to 2021. i know rainfall isn't necessarily everyone's ideal. but we do need it as we always say and it looks like the first week of 2021 is going to be really coming through for us today certainly not a bad way to be closing out your second to last day of you know what's been kind of a dicey year with 2020. we are seeing some cloudy skies out there this morning mostly some low clouds and fog sitting right above the bay. there's teacher tower right there you're east bay hills in the distance, visibility is being affected in some spots, but i think what you're going to notice most of all is just how cold it is out there livermore and dublin you're at 31 right now san jose palo alto in the 30's, san matteo at 38 oakland you're at 39 moments ago now you're back up into the 40's while napa santa rosa fairfield in san anselmo just among a few spots in the north bay that are down in the 30's this morning. so frigid cold start we do have patches of
7:01 am
fog to watch out for most of us are actually under some clear skies though i'm talking partly cloudy skies today and then our first dose of rainfall tonight ahead of next week and next year's heavier stuff, robin. >>thank you john we're checking in on the traffic and we know that it's not so bad when it's when it's not raining the drive into san francisco, brighter lighter the sun is coming up, so it's not so dark out there, but traffic is moving well as its been doing throughout the morning drive a lot of folks are still on vacation out of town at home not on the roads and we can see that because it's nice and smooth here at the pay gates on 80 into san francisco. all right let's check in on some more bridges we 92 it's our busiest bridge. so we have a crowd on both sides now leaving hayward heading west and coming into hayward going east. but so far no major issues in your drive time between hayward and san mateo is still under 30 minutes. so that's really good and that's considered right on time all right, let's check the golden gate this is where we have that dense fog
7:02 am
advisory in place we can see the fog right now, but it was pretty bad earlier right across the span we could not see the towers that's no longer the case, but you know rolls in and out so just be careful here on one oh one. but so far smooth conditions into and out of san francisco. 7 oh one and new year's eve is tomorrow night and everybody is warning people don't gather we don't need any more covid spreading. that's right going to be chilling on my couch by myself we don't want to gather with other folks and you know that worsens the covid-19 conditions because that's how it starts to spread and health officials are just urging that you not do that because that can make this year were will tran is live along the embarcadero no party nothing to see here keep moving now. >>the other party is the party of one just like be at home by myself as schering a new years east coast style meeting 09:00pm our time and after that i'm going to bed, san francisco. they're removing
7:03 am
the temptation of people possibly even hanging out at the embarcadero because no fireworks show like we saw last year and every year before that because of covid-19 so don't come down to the embarcadero you won't see anything typically. right around this time i would already see barricades in place and the fire department they'll go around here sending it up with the police officers but not this year because there are no parties to be had in fact they don't even want you to have your own personal party, instead just immediate family members, especially with christmas just a few days ago they expect the surge to continue. and unfortunately according to health officials with new year's eve tomorrow. the expect things to get worse before they get better. >>we urge of many californians to gather and do so in ways that really are covid-safe are going to lead some transmission. we hope over
7:04 am
these last few days before the new that are and we hope some are canceled some are done differently so that we can maintain bring down the spread but we know and expect that some of that will happen. >>and with all the covid-19 tests that are happening just because you're negative today does not mean that you can't be positive tomorrow because is just a snapshot at that moment in time which is why they're still urging people stay inside your place, especially with the icu beds, running very low in the bay area it's barely above 10% and we all know anything below 15% it automatically triggers a shelter in place. anyways so robin daria if you don't mind can i speak on your young in the past i would say let me think about going to your place which is code for i'm not coming this year you can flat out say the officials are telling me not to go because whatever i say let me think
7:05 am
about it. >>that means now oh yeah and whenever i feel like oh hey will you want to covid sorry, that means you're not fight it hey what time is your partying, and i'll call you. brother have a special v i p section mike out just for me. well the new more contained tay just covid-19 averion has been detected for the first time. >>right here in the u.s. colorado's governor has confirmed an infection near denver. well, the man infected is in his 20's and has no recent travel history meaning that he contracted the virus right here in the u.s.. well he's now in isolation and so far we know that the variant is the same one that's been spreading in great britain and it's been detected in at least 17 other countries. some much needed help is on the way for millions of americans who could use some money qualified people are going to get that
7:06 am
$600 deposit. >>in their bank account. and if you don't have direct deposit you will get a paper check those deliveries are starting today. so here's what you need to know about qualifying for some making up to $75,000 in 2019 automatically gets the $600 check married couples making up to a 150 grand get 1200 bucks plus $600 for each qualifying child. again if you have direct deposit you're going to see that pay minutes on the way if you do not then you should be watching for a paper check or debit card coming in the mail in january and you can check the status on the irs website. we have a link to that on our website kron 4 dot com. while the money as a welcome sight for so many families struggling to get by many say it's just not enough. president trump congressional democrats along with a handful of republicans are still pushing for more money but as joe khalil reports the odds of that happening appear slim. >>it's now increasingly
7:07 am
unlikely that americans will get a $2000 stimulus check despite growing support for them in congress donald trump says he wants to $2000 check my belief is that if we have this pope. >>on the floor of the united states senate it will. >>house but the vote senators like democrat ed markey will likely take won't beyond just a bigger check late tuesday evening senator mitch mcconnell introduced an entirely new $2000 stimulus check bill which would also create a commission to study voter fraud and repeal section 2.30 a law that shields social media companies from some lawsuits, those 3 important subjects the president has linked together. >>this week senate will begin a process to bring these 3 priorities and coach knows 3 priorities together don't pass the house or become law according to democrat senate leader chuck schumer who says quote any move like this by senator mcconnell would be a blatant attempt to deprive americans of a $2000 survival check. i hope that doesn't
7:08 am
happen. senator bernie sanders tells news nation most americans want a $2000 stimulus check and he says the way to pass it is to vote up or down on bigger checks. no add-ons look the house passed the clean bill that's what the american people. i want us to do not to putting poison pills not to muddy the water mcconnell's new bill comes after president trump joined democrats in putting pressure on republicans in congress and it seemed to work a handful of republican senators recently expressed support for $2000 checks, including georgia senators david perdue and kelly loeffler both in races to keep their senate seats as well as nebraska senator deb fischer florida senator marco rubio and missouri senator josh hawley in washington, i'm joe khaleel. >>and happening today, small business owners in california can start to apply for their share. 500 million dollars in grants as part of the state relief program. businesses can
7:09 am
get from 5,000 to $25,000. and this is small businesses and also nonprofits they're eligible. and the business has to bring in less than 2.5 million dollars in revenues and has been open since june of 2019. you have to also have a clear reopening plan for when the pandemic is over and then you can use the money for a number of employee expenses payroll health care paying off any debt. rent payments utilities also upgrading facilities with personal protective equipment. a restaurant owner in oakland says that one of his restaurants lost nearly $80,000 during the pandemic. and he says that he was wishing that leaders could actually do more. >>it's just going to coming few cents to help out. you know the backhand bills are you all. you know anything with rents or just to kind of see or when you do have to pay something to get something that will help a little bit. you know me too long way but it's still something.

7:11 am
doctor fauci and others have stated. these past few days. this will take more time than anyone would like and more time then the promises from the trump administration have suggested. this is going to be the greatest operational challenge we've ever faced as a nation. we're going to get it done. it's going to take a effort. it's not yet under way. >>well earlier this month, white house officials said that they plan to have 20 million doses distributed by the end of the year. according to data from the cdc just over 11 million doses have been distributed and only 2 million people have gotten their first dose. a 41 year-old congressman-elect from louisiana has died from complications from covid republican luke letlow died just a couple of days before he was supposed to be sworn into office again he was just 41 years old and had no preexisting medical problems
