last week the city of berkeley issued a new order after a spike in the delta cases. most indoor businesses like restaurants bars, clubs and gyms will now require customers to provide proof of vaccination for those 12 and older. i'm feeling great about that. i have absolutely no problem with the i believe in public health. i feel like public health should be more respected as of friday. the new rule is enforceable. but this business owner had no idea. >> yes, some people some people did until i to find the say move. >> and businesses have until mid-october to require proof of vaccination report%ng from berkeley. gayle ong kron 4 news go before we let you go. some of the video that you showed the show customers were out and how are they reacting to this new mandate. >> what's been about a week. so people seem to know the drill and i didn't stop to talk to another restaurant that was off camera and they're just saying some, you

working even against delta. >> well, today was a big day because were bidding and mortality weekly report from the centers for disease control came out with through studies that address this question of how much protection you get from the vaccine compared to people work needed and the data was incredibly compelling. so important because its data about the delta virus. you know, a lot of the other data we had was about the ancestral strain from that. >> there's a difference in efficacy between the 3 vaccines combating delta moderna the best followed by pfizer and then was the 3rd most effective 95% for moderna, 80 for pfizer and 64 jnj. so scientists and health officials will certainly consider that when they start recommending booster shots and what type of vaccine people will get when they get the booster shots. the cdc's director. rochelle walensky

school district 6500 students missed one or more due to the coronavirus. it is estimated that meetings and conventions generate 3 to 4 billion dollars every year in san francisco in normal years. that's when you add up the cost of putting on the convention of the meeting as well as all the money people attending those things spent on hotels restaurants shopping. >> well, the city hasn't seen that kind of money before covid-19 hit. but now conventions are returning to the mosconi center for the first time in 18 months. but first, dan kerman shows us. >> the sidewalks in front of san francisco's moscone center are crowded again and not with those seeking a covid-19 vaccine. these are some of the 3,000 people attending the california dental association's annual conference. it's nice to be here. >> and just finally be able to safely do something. >> rather than being at home think they did a really good job and everyone has to be vaccinated. >> making sure vaccination so.
>> it's safe. the number of those attending is far below the out. but it's still helpful for hotels which can survive on tourists alone. >> with conferences. they bring people to our city, but they bring our employees back to work when the hotels are busier. we bring more people back to work hotels are busier, more restaurants, get extra business and that means people coming back to work is also. >> one market is one of those restaurants that seeing an uptick in business, not just from the dental convention but smaller meetings that have been going on at nearby hotels. you know, we still have a long ways to go. but we're taking steps in the right direction as meetings that begin to return its estimated meetings and conventions. generate 3 to 4 billion dollars a year in san francisco recovery to that level is not expected until 2025 but industry leaders agree this is a good start. >> it's telling the world that san francisco is open and it's
a safe city to come into your meetings. now, this is just the first of 3 convention scheduled for the month of september. that's the good news. the bad news is some convention scheduled for october and november had canceled. >> but they're hoping things will get back on track at the beginning of 2022 at the moscone center in san francisco. dan kerman kron 4 news. >> new at 00:00pm tonight. deputies in santa cruz are searching for a man accused of slashing someone with a knife. the sheriff's department releasing this sketch of the suspect. deputies say the alleged assault happened on sunday on keystone way. the victim described the suspect to be in his early 30's around 5 foot 8, 5, foot 9 with sandy blond hair and a comb over deputies are asking anyone with information to contact the santa cruz sheriff's department. >> under way today after that storm rolled through the bay area overnight. maybe saw the lightning heard the thunder. the national weather service counted more than 100 lightning strikes locally.

once we got things rolling as that cold front approach the bay area. we saw a big change in the weather pattern. we really back a right to about just after 9 o'clock last night. you can see some pop-up thunderstorms in the east bay. then all of a sudden they started to get more and more active throughout the night and numerous strikes just about everywhere you went except along the immediate this la and then the cold front started to come in just after midnight and 1 o'clock. you see all the photos thunderstorms moving into parts ran and sonoma county and boy really got going as we head through the night into the early morning hours, even along the peninsula. they got the game late about 4 o'clock in the morning. look at those strikes just off the coastline there. half moon bay and kind of rolling on shore right across the peninsula and then really getting extreme through solano county. look at all those lightning strikes rolling through that area. there. it was a very active night outside around the bay area. but things have since settled on down right now, things quiet, just some patchy fog moving in along the coastline right now. some of
those thunderstorms continuing in nevada. but that's as close as they're going to get now. rainfall amounts pretty impressive fairfield. they must get a thunderstorm come right over head right over that rain gauge they had almost a half an inch of rain. that was the wettest place in the bay area. otherwise 800 since santa rosa 700's of san bruno. just 200's in san francisco and 100's of an inch of rain in berkeley and no measurable rain officially in san jose scattered light amounts around the rest. the bay area temperatures today also take a hit. so those numbers coming down across the board. as we get that cold front coming through and that brings those numbers down outside. but the good news is you get a sphere like this. this that nice clean fresh air out there. and got green everywhere you go all around the bay area. i think that will hold true. least through tomorrow. temperatures will heat up this weekend. we're going to talk about that. going to get hot spots this weekend the resch air like that in the nicest way to the hills look like good. thinking. >> vta light rail service is
expanding starting on sunday services going. >> expand to include the entire blue line. that is from bay point to santa teresa. meanwhile, a green line service which is currently operating from old ironsides to the don, it's expected to be back in full operation soon. free fares which were scheduled to end on sunday are actually going to continue for the light rail through the end of the month. light rail service was not running for months following the employee mass shooting that killed 9 co-workers kron 4, is your local election headquarters. and with just 4 days now until the recall election. a new poll out shows even more california voters now are saying. >> they want to keep governor newsom in office. ashley zavala explains how the governor is responding in. >> how the front runner a replacement candidate is preparing. if newsom wins. >> a new berkeley institute of governmental studies in la times poll shows governor gavin newsome has more breathing room with a boost in
