7:03 am
the country. california has an average of a 141 new coronavirus cases each day. plus more than 700 people are admitted to the hospital daily because of complications due to the virus. moderna responded this morning to the fda's decision the company's chief executive officer says that they will continue to research covid and modern officials said that there was a recent study done of a 120 people who underwent an organ transplant procedure that study showed a 3rd dose improved their immune system. now the fda did not mention anything about the johnson johnson vaccine in their announcement. but we're waiting to hear from the cdc. the agency's committee on immunization practices is meeting today. diane, james, back to you. >> thank you very much. coming up. >> big news in san francisco becoming the first city in the u.s. too. require proof of vaccination. if you want to go to anything indoors any kind of business and jim, a restaurant or a big event. this move comes during a surge
7:04 am
of cases and hospitalizations and kron four's. maureen kelly is going to take a look at how it works. starting august. 20 of people will be required to show proof they are fully vaccinated before going inside. >> what the city is calling high contact indoor businesses such as places that serve food and beverages where people to take their masks off to eat and drink bars restaurants. theaters and entertainment venues as well as indoor gyms and fitness centers. also large indoor event of a 1000 people or more and proof of a negative test result is not going to cut it. this new mandate only applies to those currently eligible for the vaccine. so kids under 12 will still be able to go inside a restaurant. the mayor says this is an effort to combat a new surge in cases driven by the delta variant is to protect the workers is to protect kids. it's protect those who can't get vaccinated is to make sure that we don't go backwards is to make sure. i never have to get up in front of you and say.
7:05 am
>> i'm sorry. i know we just reopen and now the city is closed again because we're seeing too many people die. and it's not just patrons by october 13th. >> the same types of businesses will have to get proof of vaccination from their workers as well. vaccines are armor. they are our life jackets. they are parachutes. our way out. of this pandemic. one man drowning his sorrows of the recent loss of an unvaccinated friend to the virus had no problem with the new added barrier to coming inside employees need it. you this. you know, the the patrons need it. >> it says to keep everybody safe that. so, you know, that's. >> you know, i just want this to be over the phone. >> the new health order does not apply to people picking up to go orders. it also does not apply to those who choose to sit outside maureen kelly kron 4 >> well, take it back. and one marine was saying fitness studios restaurants bars are all considered to be the 3 key sectors that will be affected
7:06 am
by this new policy. we asked the business owners in san francisco face up or checking their customers vaccine status and the vast majority of them said. >> of vaccinations for folks going to the gym is actually a very good you know, health focused him straight to start with. and so if we can give our clients that are coming just one more way air of confidence that they're going to have to work out in a healthy environment after a poll we did over 80% of our of our membership responded. they would like to go through with that. and we declare that we would be. >> only allow unvaccinated individuals to hang out indoor and our stab lish meant. however, this new rule could be hard to put into practice the executive director of the golden gate restaurant association told us that they've tried to ask. >> customers in the past to show their vaccination cards. but oftentimes it's difficult to verify their idea. well, as we were talking about like can you show a picture of your card on your phone. do you have to have the actual card.
7:07 am
is that. >> who's going to do it. like i heard somebody who works in a bakery. there's only 2 people they got to hire somebody out front. so there's a good they come in. so there's so many logistics with this and it all has to happen next friday, which is so soon. >> a lot you believe that between now and then. by the way, think about this. if you're not fully vaccinated today, then forget going somewhere next week. is that what takes this long for you to get all the shots. i know that's the thing or you have to keep checking remember because you can do the covid check right can show a negative test. >> and thanks keep evolving and changing so what we've done, what we can to try put all the information together in one place for years. you can check it as it evolves over time. so keep it tuned to kron 4. and again, we've got a qr code here on your screen right now. that will take you to that special kron 4 dot com that we dedicated to all of these stories about the mask mandates back to school. what requirements apply to all all of this. yes. so make sure you you keep checking it often. all right. happening today, by the way, governor newsom is going to be kicking off his
7:08 am
vote no recall campaign in san francisco. my ballot in the mail yesterday. as you probably did. and the governor has a lot of work ahead of him. >> kron 4. sarah stinson is live with a preview. hi, sarah. >> you know, very james. we have a democratic state. and i think in the bay area we live in a little bit of a bubble going up to the wildfires. i saw a ton of signs that we're all over the highway saying recall get gavin newsom. there's a lot of people who are even talking to me about that in the vaccine and all that even though i was there talk about wildfire. so there's a lot of people who want to recall gavin newsom. and it looks like he has his work cut out for him to take a look at this poll. it's an exclusive poll that we have inside california politics with emerson college. 46% are planning to vote on recalling the governor. 48% want to keep the governor and 6% are
7:09 am
undecided. so that's why the governor is looking to sway more californians with this vote no campaign is going to start san francisco this morning and work his way through the state to rally up these voters. his efforts are just as early voting for the september 14th recall election opens this monday. governor newsom's main goals are to educate people on how to vote when they get their balance and ballots and urge them to vote no saying if you recall in your next governor will be republican. dozens of candidates will be on the ballot vying to oeplace governor newsom. not all republicans candidates are targeting hispanic voters studies show they make up 30% of the voting population and the recent polling majority are looking to recall newsom. so we caught up with a political analysts and sonoma state university professor to learn more about how tight this really could be. >> this is a fundamentally a democratic state. it's a blue state but if the recall were held today on question one. i'm not certain that gavin
7:10 am
newsome would would pass that he's probably below water below that 50% mark as of today. but they haven't really ramp things up, fundamentally a blue state. republicans have a ways to go, but they certainly have had the wind at their backs the last couple of weeks with 3 more debates to go. it's going to be a very interesting last 4 to 5 weeks here. >> it sure is. now i know there's been some confusion on understanding the ballot. if you don't want to recall governor newsom vote no. if you do want to vote, want to recall him, then vote yes. make sure you read it carefully can be confusing. you can drop it off. it can dropping out. you're nearing polling center. you can also vote in person and you can still register to vote as well. in the meantime, governor newsom heading down from the capitol down here. 2 a san francisco's gun make his way down to los angeles and san diego hoping to gain more people who'll vote no on the recall. >> for now. we'll send it back to you in studio.
7:11 am
>> thank you very much. sir. i am really the big showdown touching off here in the bay area. the governor here today and then yesterday his big challenger, larry elder was in the bay area here he is in san jose. this was yesterday. he was at a church. we had a rally and it has shown a variety of issues, including covid restrictions policing. the 2020 election. he says this is a big one. elder says he would repeal. >> any mask mandate and any vaccine mandate in the state and he wants to change state regulations to make it easier to bill housing in california. and this rally was at the calvary church in san jose, which is the church that was fined. nearly 2 million dollars for defying santa clara county's covid health orders. a spokesperson for the church says they're not door seeing any specific candidate. >> well, don't forget, you can see the major republican candidates going head to head in a debate next week. if you still haven't made up your mind on the questions regarding the recall join us
7:12 am

>> some 44 right now. and we're taking a look at the weather heading into the weekend, which is always good. that's right. we've got john on this friday. the 13th with a look at what it's like out there. on it out. see, i was kind of thinking about the back of my head. but it doesn't bother friday and thing. yeah. superstitious my it was born on friday, the 13th. so after that it wasn't friday. it's not always the friday, the 13th. so she was fine with a 13 actually like friday. the 13th it's as you were saying earlier, it's the other days that the 13th falls on that. you watch out monday's friday's fine. well, it is going to be a nice one today for this friday, the 13th. you can see outside your north calhoun. the weather center forecast in san jose this morning that we are looking at some bright skies
7:46 am
out there. we do still have some no moisture left over across the bay area. it's not going to result in any chance of thunderstorms nor even any scattered sprinkles like we saw yesterday will contribute to and at times muggy feel although not as much so as yesterday as for current air quality were good across the bay area. but there is smoke sitting right above us. that's going to try to settle into the east bay and north bay. and because of this, the bay area air quality management district has issued some air quality advisories. they're not spare. the air alerts are actually a step below that. but you can expect some moderate pockets popping up this afternoon as for a future cast of winds relatively light this morning picking up this afternoon. one of our breezy us of this forecast. gusting as high as 30 miles per hour for upper elevations and out along the coastline. as i mentioned, we don't have any chance of sprinkles like we saw yesterday on what was such a muggy start to your morning. we certainly do have some moisture left in the atmosphere, but any sort of thunderstorm activity has moved its way out into the sierra nevada. so we've got a little bit of fog this morning. some haze do expect
7:47 am
this afternoon. all in all, not a bad start to the weekend today and actually your coolest day of the weekend is about to be today. we're heating things back up inland into tomorrow. 60's and 70's for your highs in sf 60's along the coastline and then some 70's and 80's along the bayshore millbrae at 78 burlingame at 80 degrees. san carlos in redwood city each 84 today while south bay temperatures in the mid to upper 80's and low 90's for some. so definitely still warm, especially pleasanton liverm re on up through walnut creek and concord. yeah, you're still mid 90's in many spots oakland in the other hand, only in the mid 70's. so a good spot to get to if you don't like the way those 90's feel antioch in vacaville mid to upper 90's for you, santa rosa down through mill valley in the 80's looking ahead at next 7 days. temperatures tomorrow and sunday are very hottest and then there's relief inland after that tuesday into wednesday highs falling into the 80's coastal in bayside areas in the meantime, in the 60's to 70's
7:48 am
tom, thanks for that. highway 4 is the slowest highway and tracking at this hour. and we have a hazard there. >> highway 4 eastbound at willow pass road in pittsburgh, a stalled vehicle. and so things are slowing down just a bit. there as traveling crockett down towards the maze of the take you a little under 15 minutes to make that drive heading into the city. a little under 50 for you there to that fremont street exit. so the meteor lights still off of the bay bridge traffic moving along just fine and head in a cross towards the peninsula. their 14 minutes might remember yesterday we had multiple hot spots. we have had accidents. we have not had hot spots this morning the richmond sandra fell commute. as you travel out of richmond, a little under 12 minutes. let's head to the south. a look at one o one. a little slow in their 36 minutes to what's been a partner at a major to 8085 82 look great. 8.80, a little slowing but still looks good for this friday. daryn. james, back to you. >> all right. thank you very much. football is back to pre season gets underway this weekend. both the raiders and the niners are going to on the field. what we know when it
7:49 am
comes to the niners is jimmy g at least is going to start the game may be the first possession, but then they're going to trey lance in there get a chance to get sure. for sure. shanny want the fans to be able to see what he's like and the fans want to see what the games like. >> after the 2019 season where we couldn't go to levi's and now you can. we've got the kron four's will tran actually out there live because don't forget, we are in the midst of a protocol will has what you need to know if you're planning on heading out there. a will. >> this is not the 2019 season. that was the last time we saw full capacity inside the field. the jeans when the niners took on the packers in the nfc championship game and then twenty-twenty of course, covid-19 just ruled the world and now we are heading back with there are things that you need to know. so let me just talk about the niners really quickly, you talked about jimmy g and trey lance. they are 6 expected the take the field. they want to take trey lance for a test drive. i mean, they invested a 3rd pick
7:50 am
overall on hand. so they want to see what he can do in pre-season practice. it appears they are just clapping like crazy really impressed with them and jimmy g. they already know what he can possibly do. but they want him to knock off some of the rust and that's why he's going to play tomorrow as far as covid-19 rules. well, you don't have to be vaccinated. they're not requiring you to prove that you don't have to be tested before you come in here as well. but they want to make sure that you have your mask on when you going in to indoor locations like the restroom. but if you're outside and you are cheering. of course you don't have to wear your mask. but if you're inside regardless of vaccination status and there are some places within the stadium where you will be indoors. you will have to mask up now. let's listen to coach kyle shanahan talk about his 2 joules jimmy g entry. lance. >> trying to most or starters going. jimmy will be hopefully just one series. i'm going try
7:51 am
and there and hopefully just the whole 1st half, just trying to get him reps of really doing everything in when it gets the game here. it's a lot of really. we'll see if the attack on. we'll see if he scrambles ceilings and there. >> so here's what you need to know. they will have plenty of hand sanitizers across the stadium and they're encouraging you to get vaccinated because this is one of the biggest spots in california, if not the biggest vaccination site with 350,000 people vaccinated. and that's why they're behind the shot back to you. >> all right. thank you very much. we'll and don't forget to the raiders are going to be taken on the seattle seahawks that's going to be coming up on saturday as well. marcus mariota probably not going to be playing on saturday. he suffered a leg injury during practice. but head coach jon gruden says that he shouldn't be more than a few days before he'll get back in the swing and don't expect to see much derek carr or any of the other starters, though, because. >> gruden says this is a chance for the other raiders
7:52 am
to play and for the fans to get a taste of being there in for the first. yeah. first time in this huge palace. >> gives you goose pumps. you know, gets excited and i don't think you're going to see a lot of the players play. unfortunately because of, you know, the reality of what this is. this is an exhibition game. but to unite with our fans and. kickoff football season officially in las vegas is somewhere really excited about something. we really take a lot of pride. >> grew its so funny. like so, you know, you're not going to see the raiders but comes to the raiders. let down ever. >> well, they're going to kick off at 6 o'clock in vegas. and we by the way, you're going to get a bringing in that game where the bay area home for the las vegas raiders. >> still tough to say los vegas raiders, you know what, though? what's really cool is football's back. i mean, i that's what you care about

7:56 am
2 runs score that makes it 4, nothing giants. and lamonte wade junior last one to right center field. somebody got that it's 430 feet for that one made 7 to nothing. and that was the final score 7 to nothing. and it turns out that's nothing compared to the a's cow. yeah. you get a lot of this. so the a's all looking for their 7th straight win taking on cleveland and oakland offense just exploded in this game. the a's scored early and boy, did they score yeah. it's starling marte with hit for leading the way hit 3 rbi eyes. >> oakland went on to win by final 17 and nothing will hold those plants over that 17 to not 17 yeah. so it 7 to nothing to help. that was a big hit. were they playing the cleveland indians are was as a sort of cleveland middle school was or cleveland middle school that so you don't often
