tv   KTVU FOX 2 News at Noon  FOX  September 16, 2021 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT

12:00 pm
upcoming decision surrounding a mandate that would affect any student 12 or older. plus i just see this water gushing down our block. i'm like, what the heck is going on cleanup underway in san francisco neighborhood after water was sent pouring down the street and right into homes, and it's not the first time this has happened. the growing frustration from homeowners and a homicide investigation now underway in the city of san jose. what we're learning about the shooting and the teenager who has been arrested the news at noon starts now. this is ktvu fox two news at noon. all right. good afternoon, everyone. i'm mike mibach. i'm gasia mikaelian. we'll start with the big step in protecting children from the coronavirus that would have parents making a choice. next tuesday. the west contra costa school district is expected to approve a resolution requiring covid vaccinations for all students, ages 12 and up the education news website ed source reports students would have until october 3rd to get the first dose. and until october 31st
12:01 pm
for the second students who don't comply would have to enroll an independent learning rather than attend in person classes, according to the mercury news. this proposed mandate would also apply to teachers and staff. those with valid medical or religious reasons would be exempt from the mandate but would have to be tested regularly. oakland unified school board introduced a similar resolution last week, but it has but has not voted on it. yet the fda could grant emergency approval of the find her vaccine for children under the age of 12 as early as next month, moderna. also expects to have approval for emergency use of its vaccine in children before the end of this year, and both companies say they could have vaccines approved for children as young as six months old by early next year. health officials here in the bay area say we have not had a surge in children's covid cases. but one doctor at ucsf says there are plenty of benefits to children getting vaccinated, including possibly being able to go to school without a mask. what we know and what the
12:02 pm
science tells us is that as soon as we can get as many people as possible, regardless of their age level, fully vaccinated, that that's going to make, um such a difference in terms of how we operate and what mitigation strategies will be necessary. marin county's office of education is already preparing for children's vaccines to be approved. it's already set a tentative date for young students to get those first vaccines that clinics on october 30th. and then the second dose would be given on november 27th. the city of millbrae considered making it mandatory to be vaccinated if you wanted to participate in outdoor activities and events, but as of this afternoon, that plan will not be moving forward. ktvu is a man who can. tana is live for us in the newsroom this afternoon and a man of some members of the community really not fans of that plan. no, they were not the city got some pushback from both business owners and residents last night. this is one of the stricter proposals that we've seen in the bay area to include both indoor and outdoor dining, exercising and entertainment. but councilman as agreed. this
12:03 pm
proposal needs some work. i believe contra costa county just implemented a regulation um los angeles county san francisco here. i don't think we should be overreaching. there has to be some consistency for people to follow. this proposal in millbury isn't consistent with what other cities are implementing. i've spoken to a lot of seniors and you know, a lot of them are still concerned about the delta area, even though they're vaccinated. um, and they're afraid it'll sound better. councilman anders fung introduced the idea wednesday to require vaccine proof for anywhere where people linger and have close contact like restaurants, salons and gyms, whether they're indoor or outside while he thought it might help struggling businesses, some owners feel the opposite. we've invested in outdoor dining. we've invested in safety measures, and i think there is a limit as to what we as restaurant owners can be expected to do and my staff as
12:04 pm
well. was. me we're not very comfortable with imposing vaccine mandates at the door, especially for outdoor dining council members also questioned which businesses would be included in this, but i want to be specific to the public. you know, i'm concerned with things like restaurants. when we talk about our basket, and robbins. i'm concerned about restaurants. we talked about starbucks who serves a sandwich and who would be there to police people let a festival or exercising outside in the public park. so where does that boundary go? i guess i'm with the vice mayor. i have more questions than i have answers for on that. many residents spoke out against the idea as well. the mayor also mentioned that the california restaurant association wrote a letter to the city, saying outdoor dining should be exempt from this mandate, according to an infectious disease expert at ucsf studies show very low transmission outside so experts don't believe that requiring proof of vaccination for outside events is necessary. right now live in the newsroom.

12:18 pm
little comforting that we have a little extra moisture happening because our marine layer has deepened. i wanted to start though, with a look at our air quality right now, because i've noticed this morning you can see that one orange dot there that is the san rafel sensor that has dropped into the orange, meaning it's unhealthy for sensitive groups. so just a heads up. that means that the air quality index has gone above 100. there now you can see we're doing just fine in san francisco and oakland, still in the green dots, their conquered as well, livermore, too. as we had a little further south. we do get into the moderate air quality and redwood city. you can see also in san jose, but we are under that air quality advisory again today, expecting again the moderate air quality like we had yesterday so it shouldn't be unhealthy. but again if you're a person who has asthma or any respiratory issues that sandra fell sensors saying to be very careful today, here is a look at storm tracker to we're suing that doing that same son layer kind of disappeared before our eyes. but it did get to about 2000 ft this morning, so certainly a nice, deep marine layer that brought in a little bit of that
12:19 pm
missed that i saw on my windshield this morning, and that's making things a little bit more interesting for us. but the blue skies are on the way and certainly if you're inland as we take a look at mount diablo, and you can see here right in front of it. we're taking a look at walnut creek. it's going to be a pretty nice day out there so 60 degrees right now in santa rosa, about 58 in san francisco. that's where the clouds still are oakland as well about 64. but livermore where the sun shines rolling in 70 degrees right now for you in san jose sitting in the upper sixties, so i mentioned that the marine layer again was pretty deep this morning about 2000 ft. so that's what's going to keep these temperatures relatively cool today about a degree or two cooler than yesterday. so out of the coast, just low sixties around the bay will look at about 70 and you know, upper seventies too low eighties inland so very mild day on tap here is future cast. let's talk about about that chance of rain this weekend. as we see this pattern change here's friday night. i can see it makes its way into the pacific northwest. by the time we get to saturday morning, it's up in eureka. and then the question is, how does it hold together for us, as it makes our way to the bay area, and
12:20 pm
there it is, kind of overnight saturday into sunday looks like it will likely be less than 1/10 of an inch of rain in most spots. north bay will get, you know the heaviest because it's going to come in kind of northwest to southeast. but we'll take it any rain we can get. i am all for it unfortunately, on the backside of this as we get into monday and tuesday, this pattern change also sets us up for an offshore wind event. now, this would be the first one of the season and that is when we do have that dry air that rolls in that can increase fire danger. so again, that is monday into tuesday. that is the offshore flow. you hear us talk about. and so far, we don't have any watches or warnings that but we're going to keep an eye on that for you. as we had through the weekend and again that would be monday into tuesday. i'll be back in a little bit with your extended forecast for nelson it back to the desk and just a bit. thanks, sky. let's still to come this noontime restaurants selling cocktails to go. it was new, long created during the pandemic, and now restaurants wanted to stay. what we know about the two bills now sitting on the governor's chiefs of staff. a nuf

12:47 pm
looking at that live picture and about 69 palo alto at this hour, so today will be a little cooler than yesterday by about a degree or two. but as i mentioned, we will get some really nice afternoon clearing going on. but all told temperatures cool to mild so probably topping out. you know about 81 degrees if you had all the way inland to antioch, or maybe down to livermore, but around the bay. sixties and seventies and in the north bay. you can see where they've had quite a bit of cloud cover this morning, not expected to get out of the seventies today, so all of this cool air is kind of courtesy of low pressure that's been helping to drive our marine layer deep in that marine layer. bring in that cool air. so today we will call it partly cloudy. and i think if you're out of the coast, you will be stuck with those clouds a little bit now as we get into the weekend, another low pressure system coming from the pacific northwest is going to deliver. a good chance of showers. for us. it doesn't look like an incredible amount of rain. but of course we will take anything we can get as we are still in drought conditions. so here is the system. i'm talking about tracks him from northwest to southeast. this is a real typical kind of fall
