12:01 pm
clara and sonoma along with the city of berkley, which has its own health department for the counties are seeing high rates of transmission, and some businesses like jim's had to make some adjustments to follow these new guidelines. ktvu s elissa harrington joining us live from the 24 hour fitness and el cerrito with more on how they are enforcing these new rules. alyssa. that's right. you know if you're going to work out at an indoor gym like 24 hour fitness. don't forget your mask. you need to wear one during your workout. what's happening at 24 hour? fitness is they do have extra masks. if you forget them, they have out signage to let you know about the new mandate. they're keeping people physically distanced and people i talked to who went in for workout, said even though they're disappointed they're willing to make the sacrifice. i'm so frustrated gym members at 24 hour fitness and pleasant unmasked up for their tuesday morning workouts. face coverings required once again
12:02 pm
indoors in most bay area counties. everyone's done now we're going to before it says it's nothing new. it just sucks out to come back. you got the taste of i overdone. this is to bring it back to kind of shots of the game. it's a little discouraging just because i kind of thought we were out of the woods. um it's obviously nice to be able to work out and breathe hard not to worry about it being on your face. um, but i also understand you know, numbers are going up again, so make sense and it's got to do what you gotta do. i guess the new mask mandate comes only weeks after the state fully reopened back on june 15th. since then, california has seen a rise in cases of covid, 19 and health. officers are concerned about the contagious delta variant, even those vaccinated must comply with this mandate. it's really nothing new, and i think it's uh, i think it's very essential for us to wear it because, um, i just feel like there's people that are not immune to it yet, and this is mostly for them. it feels weird, so i actually moved here from the south. i moved from tennessee, where
12:03 pm
it's been open used to wearing it, and i understand why at 24 hour fit. this. there's markers on the floor to keep people distanced bottles of hand sanitizer and signage to tell people about the mask rules, a person is allowed to remove a face covering to complete an exercise if the mask causes breathing difficulties, roxanne joy and dea is a health care worker. she said she would support even more restrictions to keep people safe. i have no problem with it. i mean, i'm used to work, um. wearing a mask all day every day as a health care worker. um i still think everyone should be taking the right precautions, especially with hygiene. um and social distancing. i do think that maybe we should go back to lower capacity with james and doing appointments again, as we did have in the beginning of the pandemic. because that really helped, right there. you're looking at the entrance to 24 hour fitness. you can see that large sign letting people know that masks are required. that means whether you are vaccinated or not now, another thing that gym member told me
12:04 pm
today is that their physical and mental health has been extremely important to them, especially during the pandemic, and that's what brought them back to the gym today. reporting live in el cerrito, i'm elissa harrington ktvu, fox two news, alyssa thank you now to new york city, which is implementing new restrictions for some indoor settings that are tighter than what we have here in the bay area. new york's mayor mill, de blasio, announced a mandate requiring that people show proof of vaccination. they want to participate in most public indoor activities such as eating at a restaurant or exercising at a gym. this requirement is similar to mandates in some european countries, but it's believed to be the first of its kind here in the united states and now to florida, where the number of people hospitalized for covid 19 in that state rose to an all time high of 11,600 in a single day. 2400 of those patients are in the eu, according to the u. s. department of health and human services. hospitals around the state are running out of room and report having
12:05 pm
to put emergency room visitors in beds in hallways, public health records show. the bay area has been averaging more than 1400 covid-19 cases a day within the past week, that figure surpasses last year's summer time surge, which took place in mid august. however covid deaths in the bay area peaked at about 20 a day at the end of last summer surge. the bay area is averaging about five deaths a day. now vaccinations had not yet begun a year ago, but last year, the bay area was still under a strict covid lockdown. and just days after welcoming students back to the classroom, the brentwood district schools are reporting more than a dozen covid-19 cases among students and staff, according to the bay area news group. 13 of the cases are in elementary schools and 10 more were reported in the high schools more than 50 people who came into contact with those individuals are now being quarantined and investigation is now underway to see where those cases were contracted. contra costa county officials say the community of brentwood has seen 205 positive
12:06 pm
cases in just the last 14 days, so it is to be expected that the schools in that area will also have cases on monday, august 16th. thousands of students will return to the san francisco unified school district. many after having been away for more than a year. this morning on the nine i hope you're with us when we spoke live with san francisco school superintendent dr vincent matthews. he says he does not expect schools to return to distance learning. despite the surge in covid cases due to the delta variant, he stressed the importance of in person learning. we have working hand in hand with are the san francisco department of public health and we are confident that we will be able to safely bring students back to in person learning as we did in the spring without any cases of transmission in san francisco, unified masks will be required on campus. there is a small online learning program available, but space is limited. there were 50,000 students in the san francisco unified school district. there
12:07 pm
are new efforts to get teachers another school staff vaccinated before students return to campus this fall, state senator josh becker says it's even more important now, with the rise of the highly contagious delta burien. he's calling for school districts to require vaccinations for all staff or require testing regularly for covid-19. in order to reopen schools safely the way to do that right now is to form a wall safety and security around our kids by getting vaccinated all over educators all of our school staff to get vaccinated. if we lose another year of in person learning it will be 100% on us as adults. health experts warn that positive cases should be expected in schools reflective of the positivity rate of the cities and communities there in several bay area school districts want to outsource their online classes for students who aren't ready to go back to the classroom this year, ktvu zan
12:08 pm
rubin says those students may end up with different teachers and different coursework than their fellow students on campus. the los altos school district was ready for kids to return to campus. what they weren't ready for a mandate from the governor in july, requiring they offer an online option two we got notification of it just, you know, three weeks ago or so, and you know the expectation to implement that it's difficult, and so what they did was outsource it. using a company called stride, which will provide the courses and the teachers at a cost of about $3000 a student and they're not alone. the palo alto unified school district is using stride to the fremont union high school district and the mountain view, los altos union high school district are using a company called edge annuity. they say it's a better option than having their own teachers split focus like last year. then they were looking on the screen and looking in the classroom, but that definitely takes away from the experience. to being in the classroom and
12:09 pm
concentrated on the students in front of you. this is not distance learning. they're calling it independent study and the california teachers association has concerns. released a statement saying outsourcing was never the intent of the law, adding quote any contract service must be bargained with the local teachers union. we are concerned that students will be short changed and feel further removed from their school community. you're certainly not going to get the same level of adult interaction and teacher interaction right on a daily basis, both los altos and voila plan to have liaisons. making sure independent study students don't fall behind. we're hoping that this is the bridge for most, and that they will be able to come back, um, vaccinated, masked and ready to learn. and with the start of the school year fast approaching, these districts are trying to determine exactly how many students will participate in the independent study programs and also what a transition might look like if

save even more. some things are just better together, aren't they? like tea and crumpets. but you wouldn't bundle just anything. like, say... a porcupine in a balloon factory. no. that'd be a mess. i mean for starters, porcupines are famously no good in a team setting. geico. save even more when bundle home and car insurance. mask mandate in place. this means in san francisco, san mateo, santa clara sonoma, alameda, marin and contra costa counties. you now have to wear a face mask indoors regardless of your vaccine status. atv use. james torres explores how long this mandate could last. contra costa as health officer was one of the few this week to give us a little bit of an answer of how long the mask mandate will be in place. there's no real timeline, and they will all mostly depend on covid-19 hospitalizations last
12:31 pm
winter, our hospitals in the bay area where perilously close to full this week seven bay area county health officials officially announced a rig instated mask mandate if you're in doors. you must wear a mask in contra costa county were alarmed at the rate at which covid patients are filling our community hospital debts. this graph shows data from contra costa county hospitalizations due to covid 19 are up 400% in the last month. those numbers, officials from marin and contra costa say, will need to go down to end the mandate. i think we're going to be looking more at our hospitalization rates and the behavior of the virus and trends, um in the number of case says, rather than, uh, and a, um, vaccination rate that's hitting the mark. we have a vaccine that can keep most people out of the hospital if we can get our hospitalization rates down to where they were, you know, in mid june, um then then we can start thinking about using off on some of
12:32 pm
these restrictions. napa and solano counties are the only two in the bay area, opting not to reinstate a mandate. solano counties, health officials say most cases come from big parties giving this statement to ktvu, adding restrictions on businesses does not align with our data since the virus spread is predominantly happening at home and in private social settings and not in businesses. napa county officials tell ktvu a mandate may discourage people from getting vaccinated and vaccines are what all counties want to see. more of. we know that was vaccinated individuals, um. while they can get infected. most of the cases are are mild or even asymptomatic, but it's the hospitalizations that we're we're really worried about in contra costa county. i'm james torrez, ktvu. fox two news. we're learning. the san francisco department of public health is now accommodating special requests from people who received the single dose johnson and johnson covid vaccine. and are looking for
12:33 pm
more protection against the delta variant in a statement from san francisco general those who have consulted with their doctors and wish to receive a supplemental dose of either the fighter all moderna vaccine can now do so more companies are pushing for employees to be vaccinated. ktvu is azenith smith tells us how kaiser permanente is issuing a mandate to its thousands of employees and physicians. kaiser permanente, the nation's largest nonprofit healthcare organization, is now requiring all staff to be vaccinated. this is the next step in fighting the pandemic. when we look at our current conditions with the delta variant and our current state of our hospitals, we are approaching 1/4 surge. nearly 70% of kaiser permanent employees and 95% of medical group positions are fully vaccinated. and while those numbers are high, kaiser wants its entire workforce vaccinated by september, 30th. majority of our nurses have been vaccinated
12:34 pm
and for those of our nurses to have religious reasons or medical reasons that accommodation is in place. the move comes as new data from the cdc shows in long term care facilities. 46% of nursing aides and 57% of nurses are fully vaccinated compared to 75% of physicians to me. that's a no brainer. the idea that a patient would go into a hospital and there'll be some chance they would get infected from their nurse or from their doctor is unconscionable. dr bob walked her from ucsf says vaccination rates in the country need to be hired to get out of the pandemic. education and incentives aren't working. i think vaccine mandates are going to become more and more common. as it takes less courage for a political and a business leader to enact it. employers including disney, facebook, google and wal mart, all mandating many employees to be vaccinated, as well as federal and state government employees. if we can get.
12:35 pm
everyone vaccinated. we can be out of this in a matter of weeks, and kids can go to school. you know, parents can send their kids to school with compass with the school year approaching san jose unified as requiring all staff to be vaccinated or be subjected to frequent testing. state senator josh becker is pushing all school districts in the state to do the same if we lose more time if we lose another year. that's on us. azenith smith ktvu, fox two news. well, some restaurants in the los angeles area are going beyond just requiring people to wear masks. some are now requiring proof of vaccination. others require everyone even if they're vaccinated to provide a recent negative covid test, or they have to take a rapid test at the door and reaction from customers is mixed, and honestly probably refer that to be honest, i have been vaccinated, but that doesn't mean that i want to share the information with anybody or that i should have to just to go out and eat. the restaurants
12:36 pm
that are now requiring proof of vaccinations say their customers. tell them that they do feel more comfortable going out to eat. knowing everyone in the restaurant is vaccinated. there's a growing demand for medical staff right now as more people want to be tested for the coronavirus. many clinics had been winding down their testing operations in san francisco early last month, the number of tests dropped to 2400 day. now it's nearly doubled after the delta. very it became more common and people became more concerned about getting infected. several bay area counties are now talking about resuming weekend testing and having labs process tests seven days a week. united states finally hit the milestone. president biden set for july 4th 70% of adults have now received at least one dose of the covid vaccine. ktvu political reporter greg lee says this milestone comes as communities across the country are battling a surge in cases as coronavirus cases surge across the country. the white house covid-19 response team continue to point to the efficacy of vaccines even against the delta variant. more
12:37 pm
cases seem to be driving more shots and arms, especially in southern states hardest hit by new infections in the last seven days alone, three million americans have gotten their first shot. that's the highest seven day total since july, 4th. and just today we hit 70% of adults with at least one shot. that's a gold president biden hope to hit back on july 4th. the team reiterated biden's new vaccination rules for federal workers and contractors and applauded local governments and members of the private sector. doing the same. the cdc's recommendations have led to several states and counties reinstating masking recommendations and mandates in public indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. this in response to new data about how much more contagious dealt it is even amongst fully vaccinated people if you get sick with the alpha variant you could infect about two other unvaccinated people. if you get sick with the delta variant, we estimate that you
12:38 pm
could infect about five other unvaccinated people. however cdc director dr rochelle walensky again called this a pandemic of the unvaccinated, dr anthony fauci said. vaccines are doing what they're supposed to do. protecting people from serious disease and death and breakthrough cases. rare as of july 26. the cdc received 6500 reports of breakthrough infections that resulted in hospitalization or death. among 163 fully vaccinated million people. that is a percentage of 0.0 or less. the task force said. it's working with states, especially those with low vaccination rates to remove any barriers, even offering vaccines at schools. and while progress has been made, the experts acknowledge there's much more work to do. there are still about 90 million eligible americans who are unvaccinated.
12:39 pm
and we need them to do their part. roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated. greg lee ktvu, fox two news. in san francisco, a new effort to try to prevent deadly overdoses that have soared to record numbers. the special street overdose response team comes as drug abuse in the city has taken a devastating toll. last year, there were 710 overdose deaths and, according to the city medical examiner, 344 drug users died between january and june of this year as ktvu is christian captain reports. city leaders hope this new program will reduce the skyrocketing numbers. san francisco police regularly patrol the city streets, but now teams looking to prevent overdose deaths will be joining them. the number of overdose deaths in the homeless community has doubled in the last year, according to the mayor's office. those on the streets near u. n plaza say they know getting high can be dangerous, even deadly. whenever you're getting high with somebody, assuming you're with somebody, which is probably the better way to do it anyway. you don't know if

12:41 pm
part of a broader 13.2 million effort aimed at trying to reduce fatal overdoses on the streets of san francisco and effort that includes more treatment centers, more treatment programs and the distribution of opioid inhibitors like this one, which if administered in time can prevent a fatal overdose in san francisco christian captain ktvu fox two news will become at noon. traffic is ramping up here in the bay area, but not going back to the pre pandemic routine. what a new report says about when the most people are on the road. outside our doors of this afternoon. very pleasant weather, with only minor changes coming our way for the days ahead. better you know when you're at ross and all those brands have her like... yes! ...and all those prices have you like... yes! that's yes for less! you've got this school year,
