9:05 am
course of travel or while visiting relatives abroad mean outside who may or may not be vaccinate themselves. if they're not following the quarantine and they enter camp or or or setting where there's other kids affecting other children we have to think about this way. we're protecting our children who can't be vaccinated and we're protecting. >> those immunocompromised people for whom the vaccines may not be completely effective. doctor maldonado pediatric infectious disease and vaccine epidemiologist with stanford university. >> echoes the message now is the time to continue to practice what we've learned last year to keep the virus at bay and not in fact, people like children who can't get the vaccine. theresa kron 4 news. >> a recent report shows that huge number of healthcare workers are still unvaccinated for covid-19 that one in 4 hospital workers nationwide hasn't even received their first shot of the vaccine over
9:06 am
50 national medical associations and organizations are now calling for a nationwide mandate for health care workers to get the shot. >> commissions and 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 effective for them. >> you know, the state of california isn't waiting for a national vaccine mandate. we've already heard from governor newsom. he's announcing a plan to require health care workers to either have proof of vaccination or a negative test result. >> starting sometime next month and the bars in san francisco didn't wait for anybody to tell them they decided as a group that they're going to require proof of vaccination or a negative covid test. if you want to drink inside the founder of the san francisco bar owner
9:07 am
alliance and they represent more than 300 bars says the rise in covid in the bay area left them with 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 data and you know, the data doesn't lie and it's very clear if you're unvaccinated much, much, much, much, much more likely to spread it. >> so if you're vaccinated, you can drink inside if you're not vaccinated, you can drink outside in the parklets. you can wear a mask. i have to wear a mask and the late use the bathroom to about again, you have to wear a mask. this is just going to be the new rule going forward and bars in this group if they want to have stricter rules that could have stricter rules. it's up to them. 9. '07, is the time right now and another big covid hot spot that now are being warned to stay away from las vegas yeah. los vegas. the warnings coming from officials across the country. >> there's been a big spike in
9:08 am
covid-19 transmission. that's what the white house pointed to last week when it singled out las vegas calling it the worst large city in the nation when it comes to transmission of coronavirus and now you have florida. yeah. so florida has overtaken the 3 of the top 3 cities for covid right now in the delta variant are in florida. >> followed by number for vegas. kron four's will tran at sfo lot of people from the bay area like to go in and out of vegas. and i know that you've talked to one guy who had a visit there. he just got back from vegas. a couple of days ago, a couple weeks ago, i should say. and he admitted that he was nervous even at that time. so james darya right now if he had to go. >> he said he probably would not go because the cases are up. you can see all the travelers at sfo. this is vacation season. a lot of people taking off. travel advisers are saying if you're not vaccinated do not go to las vegas. it's hot right now. and they just don't mean the temperature. we're talking covid-19 cases. it's around
9:09 am
14% positivity rate and the vaccination rates. they're not as high as some of the other places in the country only at 39%. so you add all those things together. plus you're indoors for long periods of time. you're pretty close to your fellow gambler and you're exposed to people not just within the united states were coming to vegas. but people from across the globe coming to vegas as well in let's face it, many people are not vaccinated and that is why they're saying this is a gamble you do not want to take a lot of flights are still taking off to vegas. many people are vaccinated. so your chances of having something tragic go down, but it's always a possibility. got a chance to talk to some travelers. they say they are not willing to roll the dice if they're not vaccinated, they shouldn't be going if they're vaccinated, they probably shouldn't be going given how little we know
9:10 am
about. >> actually the the how it spreads potentially from infected to an infected. it seems like a risk that i would be willing to take. >> let's talk about some of the other cities. las vegas was the worst spot in the country last year for a population of a million or more. as far as the spread of covid-19. now 3 other cities joined that list and bump vegas off the top spot. we're talking orlando, jacksonville and miami, las vegas right now, the don't have a mask mandate across the board. but we'll just have to wait and see if they will follow cdc guidelines. back to you. all right. thanks a lot. we'll it's a good warning. and we're also following the covid situation in tokyo where the lights are still under way. but. >> covid is running through tokyo. but now some good news to sell their it. well, fortunately a lot most of u.s. competitors are vaccinated an the u.s. gymnastics team. they won the silver today in the
9:11 am
team event. we fell to russia. russia got the gold. was great. britain got the bronze. we were favored to win the gold. >> but it didn't go out go that way. superstar a gymnast simone biles ended up having to pull out of the team. final competition towards the end of it after she struggled with the fault she was then seen leaving the arena person on the medical staff was with her. and then she eventually came back with her ankle taped and decided that she wasn't going to continue competing at least with the team anyway. she cheered him on from the sideline, but they had to have an alternate go up and when it happened, they said it was a medical issue and that was it. but just moments ago we heard from some owners self. >> no injuries. thankfully. and that's why i took a setback because i didn't want to do something silly out there and get injured. so i thought it was best if these girls took over and that the rest of the job which they absolutely did. there. looks like silver medalist now and they should be really proud of themselves for they did last minute having to go in and it's been really stressful.
9:12 am
this olympic games. i think just as a whole, i'm not having an audience. there are a lot of different variables going it's been a long week. it's been a long olympic process. it's been a long year. so just a lot of different variables and i think we're just a little bit too stressed but we should be out here having fun and sometimes that's not the case. she alluded to this in that sound bite. but earlier. >> when she was talking to to the reporter. she just she said that she was suffering from a mental health and she just said that why she ended up withdrawing now. we've seen this happen before. another big us sports hero who is out of the competition today and that was naomi osaka who. withdrew from her last tennis match because of mental health and then she you know, got back up her confidence and she went into the olympics and we're tunnel as she ended up just out because she lost her life was her 3rd match. but now, yeah, the question going forward is will simone biles
9:13 am
compete in the individual up. she says she hasn't decided yet what she's going to do with that. it's good to know that she physically ok, though, right. >> that was a huge concern. so we'll see if she's able to do it. it's only another day or 2 before they do the other hats. and it just sort of throws a spotlight on just the sheer amount of stress and strain that these athletes at that level go through to compete and you can see, you know, obviously she admits that it was taking a toll on her and she said it's taking a toll on a lot of the athletes. they should be out there having fun and the stress is just in credible right she's so fantastic. and i know everybody is rooting for her. so we'll keep you posted on what happens in tokyo. 9.13 is the time. we'll take a break. still ahead on the problem morning news, a new push by local police and the fbi to try to stop violent crimes around the chinatown area there. we'll tell you what oakland city leaders are saying about a new plan. >> to fight. also it could get a little more expensive to drive through downtown san francisco will tell you about a new plan to charge you if you drive through the downtown core during certain hours.
9:14 am
9:15 am
9:16 am
>> 9.16 is the time check in on weather on a tuesday. we are it's nice. not as nice as healdsburg was. still nice for. i came i don't think it's ever as nice as healdsburg is always first. it is a beautiful place think it's a we are looking at a couple of sprinkles this morning across the bay area. most of the rainfall is concentrated to our west. and this is actually good news. believe it or not.
9:17 am
sure we'd love to see the rain over the bay area. but the same rain is actually come with some cloud to ground lightning offshore. >> and any sort of lightning that we have seen has really been pushed away from the coast and that is actually a bit of good news because as i was talking yesterday that dry lightning was a concern for fire danger. it's been a calm morning. it's about to be a hotter afternoon 60's 70's near the coast. a tease for a lot of bayshore cities and 90's. returning further inland. as far as temperatures go, the next 7 days. daytime highs remain in the 90's for the rest of the month, which is only the next 5 days because sunday is the first day of august and conditions. after that point actually do look to be a touch cooler to kick off the new month. reyna tom, thanks for that. so we do have some traffic collisions that are popping up out there. this one down in fremont. >> 6, a southbound north of mall parkway. now again, we're seeing just a little delay as a result of that traffic collision. >> and heading into the city. 60 minutes for you to make it from the east bay to that famous to texas to traffic. >> certainly building there without a busy morning
9:18 am
overall. the san mateo bridge 20 minutes. and that's because we have a hot spot over on the dunbar bridge. a lot of the traffic diverting to this bridge to head across towards the peninsula there and another traffic collision. this time it's up in the petaluma area. one. oh, one southbound just south of petaluma boulevard and that's slowing things down just a bit. we'll have more coming up. daryn. james, back to you. >> time now to talk winners and losers on wall street with financial expert rob black joining us remotely. rob, good morning. >> james. good to be here. yeah. i'm looking at the numbers s and p 500. i see here dropping for the first time, 6 days been on a tear. we've got a lot of earnings coming out this week. what will what was a drop in his post. >> we've had 6 up days in a row. so to dep. we buy the debt that 5% or will we wait for a big correction, a 10 to 20%. but. >> last 10 years we've by the dep's not really get into corrections. lots of stories out there. happy microsoft and google the big tech mega companies are all reports day after the bell. they've been
9:19 am
carrying the market. so any sort of disappointment that could spill over to a debt that turned into a correction. but again, that's apple's got a really expensive violation of how good quarter microsoft as expensive irish to go as an expensive violation. historically. but they're also generated tons of cash, low interest rate environment. chinese stocks are getting hit in the united states. a column about the amazon of china. their regulators in china are cracking down and saying, you know, we don't want you doing things the american capital's way. we want. you chinese socialist way. so that's caused a lot of concern because there's a lot of wealth in china and in the stocks walmart announced a that 8,000 of their employees have graduated from their better living university, which is a employee perk. they're expanding that perk. i think that's a great thing. coffee is up 35%. so get your cheek coffee now, james, because in about a month t- be more expensive as a frost hits brazil and their beans and
9:20 am
coffee trees kind of got a further very susceptible to freezing. it's going to be a dizzy by the a couple weeks ago i told you that they're moving employees to southern from southern california. 2 florida. yeah. 580 million dollar tax break for that. well, okay. so i guess it was a smart move. he yes, i just i don't know. with the covid i would be voluntary to transfer out there. but anyway. >> we're also seeing some now are these new numbers for the month of may. we're talking about home prices. i'm seeing the headlines here. breaking breaking records one referred to may's number has truly extraordinary they've run out of in they run out of ways of explaining this. this. >> in sproat s what's better than truly extraordinary ride home prices broke records again. up 16.6% year-over-year
9:21 am
last month. they were up 14.8% year-over-year. so is peaking. i don't know. phoenix was up 25.9% year-over-year san diego 24.7% seattle up 23.4%, the losers on the top 20 list are still up double cities like chicago and cleveland in minneapolis. what are known as the flyover states, so to speak. but they're still up 10%. it's truly i got e-mail from. so today telling how much my homes or things like. i just shake my head at how much it's gone up. i make any sense here, but not only low interest rates low inventory. yeah, i shifting demographic. it is causing some positive factor. yeah, well, i'm also shaking my head as somebody who's one day hoping to own a house it just gets further and eurther out of reach because there's no way my or anybody's income can match those kinds of increases year over year. it's like it's a losing battle. >> probably will be by on the
9:22 am
island of tonga. lowest cost of planet. haha. but i won't be visiting your time that, you even if i make a good all right. fine. and then lastly, what we're talking about earnings tesla and they blew the doors off. i mean, they beat expectations beat expectations. >> now i'm tess is we've created a monster them. you musk said this is probably his last conference call except for annual. that's so it tends to say some things are pretty lack of total. we'll get that in a minute. but they put in a billion dollars. plus a profit, which is a very nice number it's generally a generally accepted accounting principles gaap earnings, which is it's positive. it's not we're not using which is earnings before interest tax depreciation. amortization coming made up number. have to help us. income was up 10 times. that was last year. that's if you come home tonight and tell your wife, hey, i'm getting a 10 times should

9:31 am
cam right here. skies are definitely still on the great your side of things. there's some brightness tearing through and you can see alcatraz there in the distance having been freed from the fog that we were seeing earlier radar right now does show most of the rainfall offshore. you may run into a sprinkle or 2 across the bay itself. it's very limited, very short lived. if you do 50's 60's and 70's for current temperatures. we're off to a pretty warm start with the southerly flow pushing in this moisture and making for that humid and warm feel we've got right now livermore in fairfield in the low 70's. well, dublin at 69 reyna. john, thank you. this tuesday morning was a busy one for us. we have hot spots. >> several accidents. now we're starting to see just a little recovery out there on our highways in our bridges like the bay ridge a little under 60 minutes free to make it to that free must exit from the east bay as you're traveling. it's still fairly slow along 5, 1880, heading across towards the peninsula. we're up 27 minutes here because of the hot spot along the dunbar bridge since status

9:33 am
drive into the congestion pricing zone. only during the morning evening rush hour under the plan. those who drive into the downtown core. >> would be charged as much as $6.50. for the first 2 times they enter the core. the fee would be on a sliding scale based on annual income. so as not to price out those who make less money. but drivers aren't sure this is what's best oftentimes will drive just through downtown to get to the bay from where i live. >> and it seems a little bit crazy to stack that feed just to get into downtown drive through very quickly. on top of the existing bridge the current plan has 2 versions of the downtown core the area in yellow basically as boarded by van essen laguna to the west. >> the embarcadero to the east broadway to the north and the vision and mission creek to the south. a larger corps would include the browns own mission bay to the south and
9:34 am
add russian hill north beach in fisherman's wharf to the north. on the one hand we want to encourage people to think about. >> biking walking or taking transit want to be able to raise revenues. they can go into making those other forms of transportation better. >> taxes would not be charged as part of the plan. but rideshare drivers would pay each time they enter the zone and every time there's a trip within the zone. the county transportation authority is hoping to get something to the board of supervisors by the end of the year. >> even if that proposal is approved congestion, pricing would be at least 3 to 5 years off. in san francisco. dan kerman kron 4 news. >> 9.34 and a big story. former california senator barbara boxer was attacked and robbed near her home. >> she's 80 years old. >> and she's lived in oakland for number of years. he has now boxer was rob yesterday afternoon was right near jack london square. the attacker apparently pushed her in the back then stole her phone and
