5:06 am
12% of registered nurses and doctors at mid to being hesitant to get the shot has been a full-court press trying to get everyone vaccinated. >> a lot of folks going. kind of surprised to learn that of that number health care workers are not vaccinated at this point. >> well, you know, human and we raise it the full spectrum of people thought the georges benjamin is the executive director of the american public health association. one of over 50 national medical associations and organizations now calling for a nationwide mandate for health care workers to get the vaccine nurses are very much trusted by their patients. but, you know, if i'm going to ask you to do something i do it myself. and so from that perspective, it's also leadership. >> role for doctors and nurses who got who got to give good critical advice of their patients. and if we're not willing to take the vaccine. you know, how we tell our patients that is safe and
5:07 am
effective for them here is a snapshot of what we found locally for health care providers and their percentages of hospital workers who are vaccinated 90% of university of california health employees are vaccinated for covid-19. both stanford health care and john muir health say about 80% of their employees are vaccinated and about 3 quarters of kaiser permanente's northern california workforce are inoculated against the virus as haaziq madyun kron 4 news. >> well, starting thursday hundreds of bars in san francisco will require either a proof of vaccination or proof of a negative covid-19 test in order for you to go inside and enjoy their service is the founder of the san francisco bar owner alliance which represents more than 300 barr says that the rise in covid-19 cases here in the bay area has really left them no choice. >> in the last few weeks. we started lar ming number of bar staff were vaccinated contracting the delta variant. they just took a look at the
5:08 am
data and you know, the data doesn't lie and it's very clear if you're unvaccinated much, much, much more likely to spread it. >> again, that proof of vaccination is to enjoy indoor service. you can still as you the video eat outdoors and drink outdoors. this after-school bar owner alliance says that the parklets patios, they're all okay for unvaccinated guess. but each bar can choose to have stricter guidelines if they wish. there will be signs posted outside the buildings to let customers know about the policy going forward. >> time now is 5. '08 and a big story is what's going on on las vegas. covid wyze. there's a warning from officials across the country not to go to las vegas because of a spike in covid. in fact, the white house says that las vegas is the worst in the nation for transmission of coronavirus kron four's will tran is out at sfo to explain. will. >> if there's they're saying if you go to vegas right now, you're unvaccinated that is a gamble that you don't want to take because i was talked about being the worst place in
5:09 am
the country as far as the transmission of covid cases. in fact, in clark county. we are seeing approximately 14% positivity rate not just ii clark county but in nevada as well, which is why not just the white house but even cities like chicago, they're advising their residents not to go to las vegas. this being the summer. a lot of people want to travel to las vegas. but here's the problem. when you're in vegas mingle with so many people from across the country and they might not be vaccinated as well. then you're indoors for a long period of time. you'll be talking to each other. you're sitting right next to each other. we're pretty close when you're gambling and that allows covid-19 to spread, especially among the unvaccinated crowd which is why they're telling people have to be careful if you're going to vegas, they already saw a spike in the deaths as far as covid-19 cases just last week they were advising people. if they go indoors to wear their mask right now.
5:10 am
there is not a mask mandate where they're requiring people to wear their mask. and you might recall las vegas was one of the bigger cities that open up before a lot of the other cities in the country to do so, which is why according to the white house that really not surprised by what's going on. we've got a chance to actually track down the governor from hawaii. now, guys, i used to report in hawaii, las vegas to them is like disneyland to us. it is very popular. but even the state of hawaii. i mean, they go on vacation as well. they're telling their residents stay away from las vegas. >> those states are going to have rampant delta variant covid just everywhere. so you're taking huge risk and you will very likely catch covid. if you go to las vegas and you're in restaurants or in a casino where most people are not wearing masks. so that's what's going to happen. you'll definitely catch covid. then you'll come back. we'll be asymptomatic for a few days. your pop positive for covid. you give it your whole
5:11 am
family. >> now, of course, a lot of people already made their summer plans. they're going to vegas. but they're telling people if you're unvaccinated, you mit want to really think about that and not go to vegas because right now as far as clark county, which has las vegas their vaccination rate is only at 39%. and we're just talking about the residents, a las vegas. james and ari, we're not even talking about the people coming into las vegas who might also be unvaccinated and you're indoors for a long time. >> back to you. thanks a lot. we'll. and that's the thing is vegas. welcomes visitors from all or are petri dish. it is go back to their communities with whatever for more on mask guidelines and the latest covid numbers you want to scan this qr code we put together a special section a page kron 4 dot com dedicated to all the pandemic information. >> you need. make sure you check it out.

>> 5.16 is the time and for your money, it could cost you more just to drive in san francisco's busiest neighborhoods yeah. all they are too considering this thing called congestion pricing may have you heard it in other cities. if you drive into a downtown core, which would be established the, you know, perimeter on weekdays during commute hours. if you drive into this area, they might decide what that is. you'd be charged as much as 6.50. each time the first 2 times you enter the zone trying to discourage people from coming into the core during commute hours. the fee would be on a sliding scale based on annual
5:17 am
income. >> i don't how you figure that out. but they're determined to do it. the current proposal has 2 versions of what would be considered the downtown core. and here we have a map showing the area in yellow bordered by van ness and laguna to the west, the market or to the east and broadway broadway. the north kron 4. >> where point to us there now we're right about okay. we just outside the zone that we're just real well. but i mean, that's just one of larger core which is outlined in yellow would include us. it's the entire. financial district as well all the way up towards aquatic park. as you can see, their russian children. and can you meet me out here and work hard. pull in and see them the 6 was split. we all the idea, of course, is to reduce gridlock but not everybody. it is convinced that that's going to work. seems a little bit crazy to stack. >> that feed just to get into downtown drive through very quickly. on top of the existing bridge fees. the money that could be raised from congestion pricing. we go

5:19 am
offshore. you see all that green sitting well, offshore of the day. this is actually some cloud to ground lightning to that. we're seeing. that's that monsoonal moisture that's resulting in our thunderstorm risk here. locally. good news is that shifted overnight really quickly so that lightning strikes, they've all been over the ocean. and that's what you want to see because cloud to ground lightning in the bay does up your risk of fire danger. not to say we're all tapped out of moisture, though there's another wave of energy that is currently steering its way gpacross the region. i'm keepin a close eye on what that could offer us as far as temperatures go, we will be looking at daytime highs in the 60's 70's 80's to 90's today. concord in livermore each at 94 he were to 81 oakland an i 76 good option to get to if you are further inland or can in a field in those 90's that we're going to be seeing these next few days. wednesday, thursday and friday. we're going to keep this trend to mid-nineties going before we gradually cool down into the weekend and early next week. reyna. tom, thanks for that. out here. things are looking great. no major hot spots. >> at this hour, hoping that stays like that a little under

pushing further and further to the northeast. one of the good things about our weather pattern right now is that air is generally moving from the south to north. so that's keeping smoke out of the bay area for the time being. unfortunately, that is drying in some months moisture, though, which is our biggest risk in the bay area this morning. your view outside from our berkeley hills camera much clearer than anything in san francisco is visibility is improved for some areas but closer to the coastline. and in the north bay, you are looking at some low grade. a really important look at radar this morning because although most of us are dry. we do have some showers just south of half moon bay about to be working their way into half moon bay. this is associated with a line of energy, stretching offshore that has resulted in some lightning off the coast of the central coast and the south bay. look at this line of showers that made its way over head overnight didn't result in any rain or thunderstorm activity for us. but there is cloud to ground lightning offshore. this is really good news that this moisture shifted further away from the coastline because the
5:48 am
concern here for fire danger is any of those dry lightning strikes having occurred right on top of the bay. we're quiet right now. but off coast. that's where you're seeing a lot of this energy having shifted. and you can see that line of showers is only really moving to the north and out of the region. that's good news for us here. locally as for temperatures, we're looking at some 60's and 70's for san francisco's highs today a range of 60's right along the coastline and then temperatures in the 70's 80's for bayshore cities foster city right at 80 degrees. palo alto 83 temperatures in the south bay in the mid to upper 80's and even a couple of low 90's mixed in too pleasanton and livermore at 94 degrees each hayward 81 oakland. the place to be today at 90's are 76 the 90's are over towards sandra vote on up to concord as well as from antioch up to vacaville pittsburgh. you're at 94 for your high. well, up to 88 nevado and center fell. a look ahead of next 7 days shows temperatures out there in the 90's. pretty
