7:01 am
north bay a little warmer than we were yesterday for portions of the east bay 78 by 11, by 2 o'clock. we're going to talk 93 is temperatures in london. some selective spots go to the upper 90's. what more that a bit. but rain wants to check in what's going on with traffic radar today we got a little backup along the bay bridge. and that's because of this accident along one o one that we had earlier to chavez street. >> now it's just a residual delay there. they were able to clear that in the last hour. but look at this as you travel into the city, about 15 minutes were up to about 22 minutes there. last time we checked in so things are certainly improving there also as you head across towards the peninsula. no major delays are hazards to slow us down all throughout this friday morning. a little under 15 minutes for us there. richmond sandra fell commute. as you travel out of richmond under 12 minutes and things are also looking great in the south bay daryn, james, back to you. rana, thank you. 7. oh one. let's get to our top story this morning. napa county and the fact that they're seeing a spike in coronavirus cases. and that's leading to more
7:02 am
hospitalizations. here's the county at large. we want to zoom in a little bit and show you more about where the epicenter of cases right now are popping up. >> and as you might imagine, it's no surprise we're talking about the city of napa itself. that's the population center. and that's where we're seeing the biggest jump in numbers. in fact, if you take a look at the numbers over the last few months. may they had 270 new cases county wide in june. it dropped to 2.40 and then this past month in july, almost 900 so an explosion in new cases. and what we have seen levels like that since february. and that is what has health officers here in napa county. very concerned. and that's why they're taking steps to try to cut down on the spread of delta did napa county is joined now the 7 other bay area counties. >> in issuing an indoor mask mandate. you got to wear a mask even if you're vaccinated any time you go inside starting at midnight. so it's in effect right now. kron 4. sarah stinson is live in napa county. sarah, how's it going?
7:03 am
>> well. it's going. it's a bit of a transition and napa counties so here at a safeway where i'm seeing majority of people wearing their mask. you know, it's hard to remember to get this mask back on when you go to a place indoors because we have been doing it since about june. so we've been used to provide a 2 months now we've got to get back to putting it all and take a look at video. you can see they've already got the signs up on the door here at safeway. a little confusing is one sign says. >> only 4 nonvaccinated customs in the next to it says for all customers. so hopefully it's not too confusing for people by, as you can see, some people went in without a mask and most people went in with a mask. this is just day one. we're just hours into the mask mandate. so it's going to take some time for people to comply. and this is napa county. joining 7 other bay area counties with the mask mandate. and earlier i was at a gym not too far from here.
7:04 am
and it was definitely a transition there. i mean, that was at like 4 in the morning. so i'm sure they weren't quite and forcing it yet. you can see people working out on the treadmill without their mask on and then some of the employees saw me there. they put their mask on and start to remember oh, yeah. that mask mandate. it starts today. 75% of people who live in napa county are fully vaccinated. but they're still a concerning rise in hospitalizations, threatening hospital capacity says the health officer especially with the delta variant making up majority of the covid cases in california. >> and as we know, this variant is more contagious and it's spreading not just to the unvaccinated but to the vaccinated as well. and that's why the cdc and our local health officials believe masking plus vaccinating are the perfect pair to getting these cases down to how do people feel? putting that mask back on as they go about their daily life. well, let's take a listen. >> i hate it. but you've got to do it. it's it sounds like
7:05 am
a piece of clothing like you wake up. you got every month. >> it's very true of things. once you get in the habit of it. you won't forget it. and i think people just got used to going to say the gym and a nail salon in the grocery store, not wearing. and of course it feels good to breathe. but now that we have these cases climbing yet again. it's time to put the mask back on health officials believe that this mask mandate will hopefully avoid more restrictions in the future. they're trying to make sure that schools can reopen this fall for in-person education. >> was no hiccups for now reporting live in napa county. sarah stinson back to you, ok. thank you very much. sara, for your health as scary as covid and the delta variant are now there's something even more serious. >> that has been detected in the bay area and it's called delta. plus. >> officials say it's even more contagious. then the delta variant a delta plus was first detected in europe in
