5:03 pm
i would say that's more than normal. certainly, i think. perhaps one off handed incident, perhaps or to, um, at an extreme would be normal, but i think for would be something to look at the two most egregious conflicts took place six months apart in july, 2019 cassidy was suspended without pay for two days, vita officials say he refused to follow policy for signing out a radio used for work in january of 2020. cassidy got into a verbal altercation with another employee. the incident was reported and the second employee told the manager quote he scares me. if someone was to go postal it be him. well that would be something worthy of looking into. and i don't know frankly of the vita did look into it. that would be a warning sign. to me. that would be a reason for concern. may 26th sam cassidy allegedly shot and killed nine co workers at the vita guadalupe light rail yard. he took his own life as
5:04 pm
sheriff's deputies and san jose police officers approached him. vita officials say there was nothing in the 57 year olds file to support concern over the go. postal comment the matter was ultimately referred back to cassidy's department manager, dr robert albright, who co authored a book on workplace conflict resolution says violence can happen after a pattern or a string of encounters. workplace violence isn't. typically something that happens on an impulse i e. and one day it's more of a process the two other hr incidents were minor one for refusing to attend a mandatory training session. another for an unexcused leave, vita officials say they're continuing to investigate the go postal verbal altercation incident to see if they're more relevant documents to review in san jose jesse gary ktvu fox two news, san francisco police. are investigating a shooting that left a man with life

5:06 pm
of last year. you can see some people walking along right now. now some want to keep this road closed and others have been saying open it up. san francisco's upper great highway running along the western edge of the sunset district has been car free since april of 2021 of the city's slow streets created as a place for people to safely recreate during the pandemic now the city is considering a possible two year pilot program extending that ban. we are considering and proposing and feeling that the best way to move forward is to design some kind of piloting effort. um where we work with a, you know, full or partial car free condition for great highway. yes i'll be calling rolf the city's recreation and parks department and san francisco municipal transportation agency are considering a number of ideas. ranging from fully returning the road to a four lane highway to continuing the full ban on motor vehicle traffic or various compromises. luke born heimer from kids safe,
5:07 pm
sf says he would like to see the highway remain car free. we've seen an incredible expansion of this space, a public space where people are connecting kids are learning to bike and scoot, and we want to see this space stay as is, but some neighbors like lewis and cabral, who have lived in the area for 30 years, say closing the rate highway. has pushed more traffic into the neighborhood. it's not good, it's a really dangerous walking around, you know, so we're not for it, but we'll just have to wait and see what the politics do and, you know, see how they change things. the city says. it's added stop signs and speed bumps to slow and reroute traffic from neighborhood roads to busier streets, and cabral says the idea of a walk only great highway made sense at the height of the pandemic, i think safety wise it's seen its time because i know the fire to car we have a station that's up here on 45th, and they are frustrated. i believe i think i see them being frustrated trying to go through the city streets there and not have this
5:08 pm
access road as easily to get from one end of this area to the other backers of the plan to make the great highway permanently car free say there needs to be a compromise. we see this as an amazing opportunity for the city to lead by saying this is a space for people, and we understand that there might be concerns about car commutes, and we're going to address those car can new concerns. the city says it's still considering how it will proceed and will likely move forward with some kind of pilot program in the fall, reporting live at the great highway in san francisco, christien kafton ktvu, fox two news. alright, christian. thank you so much. big confusion over the changing guidelines on face coverings. many business owners say they are frustrated as they try to figure out what to do next week when the state fully reopens that story coming up tonight at 5 30 plus. live. look now at a vigil for a young south bay boy whose body was found outside las vegas. his

inching higher tonight. the state reports more than 54% of eligible people are fully vaccinated and another 11% are partially vaccinated to date. nearly 40 million shots have now been administered to californians. but even as vaccination rates rise, california continues to see an increase in the number of covid cases, the state has reported 3.8 million coronavirus infections, including 856 new cases over the past day. have also been more than 63,000 deaths here in california from covid-19 right now, nearly 1300 people are hospitalized with the virus. kell ocean, the state's worker safety watchdog, has decided to take another
5:29 pm
look at its covid regulations because many of the state's businesses complained that the rules were too strict. ktvu tom vacar joins us now live and tom even when regulations are finalized, they won't take effect until at least 12 days after the june 15th reopening. yeah. this was part of the confusion and it's going to keep being confused until we get well out of this when california row pins and that's just five days from now there will be rules. the question is which ones? the california chamber of commerce, the powerful lobbying arm of the state's business community, says it's glad something not yet finalized, but something solid will come out clarity and consistency for businesses. so we know what's coming and when it's coming. the bay area council, a consortium of the region's largest employers, says osha's rules needed work. they at least on first blush were not consistent with, uh, with what the state public health department and cdc was recommending. what business is
5:30 pm
one of the rules that match up with california and federal cdc guidelines dropping all master requirements for fully vaccinated employees clarifying how employees can prove that they have been vaccinated and eliminating the need to stockpile expensive n95 masks. kell, osha's new worker, covid rules will be announced on june the 17th two days after the state's official reopening and by law won't be effective for 10 days after that were obviously a little disappointed. that it's happening so late. they could have aligned on june 3rd with the governor instead, a proposed regulations that actually were more restrictive than we've ever had since the beginning of covid, and still, some employees may want safety rules to remain. we are not out of the pandemic. the california nurses association says. we only got to this point by minding health rules and now is not the time to ditch them. we know the variants are running rampant. we still don't know
5:31 pm
how much protection will get with these vaccines. there's just still a lot that we don't know about this covid-19. the plan won't be final until late this month unless the state's leadership steps in what we're asking right now is the governor can always do an executive order. he can always override cal osha he can align everything, including businesses, along with what's going to happen on june 15th. nonetheless many folks will keep on wearing those masks. the rules notwithstanding. why because they work, and they pretty much prevented a cold and flu season. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news, all right, we'll see what happens, tom. thank you. well the back and forth over those mask wearing rules for workplaces has led to a lot of confusion among business owners and calls for more relaxed guidelines. ktvu is alex savage joins us now live with more on how businesses are response. funding to cal osha's
5:32 pm
decision making process, alex well, julie across the board, business owners are simply asking for more clarity when it comes to mask wearing in the workplace, and there was also quite a bit of frustration without slowly. cal osha is moving on this issue at academic coffee in downtown san jose. all of the baristas are wearing face coverings as they take customers' orders and the sign out front makes it clear no mask, no service owner frank win is anxiously awaiting a final decision from cal osha. on whether fully vaccinated employees will still have to wear masks in the workplace. he understands if the state's workplace regulators do opt for a more cautious approach, but he just wants some clear guidance. following the requirements is one thing, but then also probably the biggest challenge is trying to explain to customers why we want to keep having mass on even though the state is saying that if you're vaccinate you don't have to. but many other business owners are hoping the cal osha
5:33 pm
will decide to relax its current mask rules and then aligned with the cdc and the california department of public health guidelines, which will allow anyone who's fully vaccinated to ditch their mask after next tuesday, and it's just reported a moment ago. we talked today with the president and ceo of the california retailers association. and she said to us the california isn't fully reopened unless fully vaccinated. workers are allowed to remove their masks on the job. we are going to follow the science. if we are going to follow the cdc and the state department of public health and the governor's office, this should have been a no brainer. the fact that cal osha couldn't get their act together to really provide the clarity which they knew. governor newsom has said since may. this is what's going to happen on june 15th. we all knew this. everyone. he made it very clear and disappointed body who's not responsible to any voter. they should have had plenty of time
5:34 pm
to come up to align their guidance with that that's coming out of the state department of public health. rachel michelin points out that cal osha still has the same workplace mask rules in place that were implemented during the height of the pandemic, not taking vaccinations into account. she and her organization's members all across the state, including national chains and independent businesses are hoping for that updated guidance on mask wearing and hoping it takes effect. by the end of this month, julie yeah, it's clearly something that has a lot of people frustrated and confused, alex. thank you. sure we'll all young people 18 and under in san francisco will be able to ride muni busses and trains for free this summer. no application required noon is expanding its free youth program. it was initially available only to children in low to moderate income households. it is being expanded with the help of $2 million in the upcoming city budget. london breed says she hopes this will foster a new

5:36 pm
protections until employment numbers return to what they were before the pandemic. one of the speakers, jackie loughery, from antioch, said her family members all lost their full time jobs during the pandemic, and now they're at serious risk of losing their home. i'm a breast cancer survivor. i take care of my twin six year old granddaughters. i can't even fathom the thought of losing my home right now. but it can be a reality. if sp 91 does not get extended and loopholes closed. larry said she applied for rental assistance months ago and is still waiting. if there is no extension, landlords across the state will fill the courthouses on july 1st two file unlawful detainers. there will be massive evictions, causing another health emergency in this. officials with california's covid-19 rent relief program just announced changes to the application process. the goal is to streamline the process and encourage more people to apply. this has been the key element
