vaccinated. the order takes effect that 12 01 tomorrow morning, solano county is now the only bay area county that is not requiring people to wear masks indoors. california's health care and long term care workers are now being ordered to be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. last month, governor newsom said that he would require the states healthcare workers to either be vaccinated or submit to weekly testing. but this new order issued today by the state health department does not give healthcare workers a choice. it says all of the roughly 2.2 million workers must be fully vaccinated by the end of september. only workers who were granted a religious or medical exemption will have the option to get tested twice a week. the number of people getting vaccinated here in california continues to go up more than 44 million doses of covid-19 vaccines have now been administered statewide, according to the latest data, there are now an average of more than 71,000 shots a day

10:10 pm
cancer or hiv, or auto immune disorders, will likely need a third dose of the vaccine. he said that their bodies aren't able to produce an adequate immune response. even after getting a full. dose of the vaccine. the white house says they're working as quickly as possible to authorize booster shots for that population. i know if they restaurant group has come up with its own contest to try to get more employees vaccinated more than $20,000 is now up for grabs. new attend tonight. ktvu deborah villalon is live in santa rosa with the reasons behind this lotto. deb heather, we hear a lot about mandates. but the starks, who owns seven restaurants in sonoma county are using the carrot, not the stick. approach you do. sonoma county restaurants owned by marc and teri stark are serving up something new. the bucket.

10:30 pm
that's correct. the wind has shifted from where it was yesterday. so that now the fires starting to burn in a different direction, which is presenting another challenge. on a for our firefighters out there and down in the valley where i was most of the day we had some very, very impressive and scary looking, um, of that pyro cumulus that so many people have been talking about now build up throughout the day. it was it was pretty impressive and pretty amazing to see. um that actually sort of two different ones from the chester cited from the grease. those has the fire. this is a monster fire as we have been report. has been raging now for more than three weeks. i mean, how do you go about trying to contain it? well we, uh, just go basically through our process, which is, you know, are our priorities when it comes to fighting fire, as always, our life safety and
10:31 pm
then property and then we'll go and fight the fire. and so first priority is to make sure that everybody, uh firefighters and civilians, residents, um as well are are safe and getting people out of the area if they're in the way of the fire and then protecting property as much as we can, which. we have a large presence of, uh um those those sort of bigger type one type fire engines. that are that are not necessarily going to go off road looking for fire to put out. but a lot of those are doing structure protection, so they're in those areas where we have, um, populated areas and looking just to protect the structures in there, and so, you know, we're deploying resources everywhere we can with a lot of different missions. but you know, overall, it's to protect the people and to protect the structures as much as we can. yes, we're looking at dash cam video, and we all know that firefighting
10:32 pm
is so difficult, but when you look at the conditions right now, it almost seems as if it's if it's unbearable. i don't even know how crews can get in there. it's so smoky, so dark, so hazy, and we also know that that has limited your aerial firefighting support as well. that is correct. there have been, uh. for a long time on the fire. we were able to use their resources at least every day somewhere on the fire because if there was a place where it was too smoky on one side of the fire nation, we could do it. on the other side of the fire over the past few days have not necessarily been the case. although every sources were available today. um i know on at least some parts of the fire as well. so we've we've been managing. other ways as well. so we have actually taken the retardant that we normally loaded the airplanes. we have loaded that into water tenders and had the water tenders driving down the road and spraying the retardant
10:33 pm
out. just like the aircraft would if they could get in there. so we're you know, using the resources that we can as best we can, but again, we're not going to put our firefighters in danger. so you know if they if there's an area where they're working, and all of a sudden conditions become too bad. we are going to pull them out and. bring them to a place where they're going to be safe because we're not going to put our firefighters in danger or in harmful. a sure no. no one wants that rick carhartt really appreciate your time. once again tonight, again, telling us about the dixie fire, which unfortunately continues to burn out of control, rick. thank you. thank you very much. smoke from the dixie wildfire and other wildfires that are burning in california. that smoke is now drifting into the bay area and now an air quality advisory has been issued for both today and tomorrow. ktvu is andre senior with more on

10:49 pm
temperatures. these were today's numbers, which dropped off pretty significantly today. 88 fairfield 82 in vallejo, the last couple of days. we've dropped good 15 degrees in some places as we head into tomorrow we go the other way. we warm right up. temperatures are going to get back into the middle upper nineties whenever one day heat up if you will, and then temperatures start to cool against an interesting pattern. little smoke may come in tomorrow and be from those northern fires. we you see a little smoke this afternoon this evening, but again, i think it's high level stuff. so if you're worried about your asthma or respiratory issues, i don't think it is. the gentleman said an earlier piece vickers tom baker's piece if you can smell the smoke, then it is a problem. you know you're breathing. you're probably breathing some particular but it can't smell it. which i don't suspect. you will. i think we'll be okay. this low pressure center is the reason that we've got all the fog. it's the reason we cooled off today. it's the reason the fire the dixie fire, especially and even the grown a bit because they're getting a lot of south wind pumped into its
10:50 pm
southwest wind in that southwest wind is also bringing smoke down from some fires up in dill north county into our areas. that's where the smoke would come from. so we'll look for that tomorrow and then after that, it's going to kick out pretty quick. i think i showed you the model earlier. the smoke is going to kick out like if it shows up by noon. two o'clock, the smoke's gone the way the way that we in direction is it's going to shift real quickly and move right off, so it's not going to be a long term thing. if you do smell smoke, it shouldn't be around, but a couple hours, so i don't think it's a game a game changer at all fog and low clouds tomorrow morning. you knew that was coming, but then it burns off more quickly and then temperatures warm because as that low leaves. high jumps in and the air starts to sink and warm and so we're going to get like a quick warm up, so it's going to go from the eighties today, mid eighties to mid nineties tomorrow, we've got a nice onshore flow about where it should be. everything's doing what it's supposed to do. the forecast model you see a little bit of fog tomorrow morning, not a ton of coverage. and then because of that temperatures warm up,
10:51 pm
quick that high fills in and you see the purple showing up in the central value, so we'll see low low one hundreds out there. um for most of us around the bay area, the hotspots will be like 97. and the ac 97 in fairfield, then 77 in oakland, which is pleasant 79 hayward, 82 down towards the san jose area. the five day forecast is i like it. how cal fire likes it too, quite frankly, for the bay area in terms of this because we're looking at a heat up tomorrow, but then it cools down quite rapidly as we head into the weekend and early next week. coming up. the giants did something today. they haven't done in 80 years in our sports director marco baniyas has the story that's coming up next in sports and then coming up on the 11 o'clock news, a massive project to pay tribute to those covid-19, who died. how artists in san francisco are honoring
