past video. even though the parade is canceled, vendors will be out celebrating with live music, food, and are encouraging people to help support black- owned businesses. >> we want to use resources put together for this year's parade to prevent having to cancel other things. if dr. king were here today, this would be on his table. >> organizers say mlk parade has been postponed to june 19th, 2022. 49ers are set to take on the packers after a big playoff win against cowboys in dallas. >> with the 23-17 win, niners became the first under dog and road team to win. 49ers up 23-7. dallas got back

district said those masks were on the way. the surge in cases has been impacting school communities throughout the bay area. of course we will be staying on top of this. back to you guys. >> thank you. health experts say we need to be prepared for national covid-19 cases to continue to climb. the country is averaging more than 780,000 new cases a day despite issues with testing access. americans will be able to order free covid-19 tests starting wednesday. the white house says that will when it will open the federal website to place the orders. supplies will be limited to four tests per household. we are learning people are flooding santa clara emergency rooms in search of covid tests and hospitals are struggling to keep up. over 7800 people visited santa clara county emergency rooms in december. that's a jump from about 7300 in november.

testing but vaccinations would continue plus treatment with oral antivirals for people at risk of severe disease. a live look at oakland where you are about to start seeing more signs of the times. saturday was deadline for businesses and government agencies to post flyers like this alerting people to the new indoor vaccine mandate taking effect next month. anyone 12 and up will have to show proof of vaccination to get into restaurants, bars, gyms, entertainment venues, and city owned buildings. dozens of people filled food boxes for the hungry. with the omicron surge many organizations like the food bank of contra costa and solano are facing critical shortage of volunteers. one high school student says it is easy and rewarding. >> it's a great feeling, just the feeling of being productive. you feel like you did something and you contributed to something. a lot of times as opposed to

the mark hopkins hotel. the numbers show us visibility readings are fine bay area wide. but there has been a report of some fog at the oakland airport, really isolated and not a widespread issue and not too terribly dense. if want fog, you have to be in the central valley to find it. current temperatures are in the mid 40s most locations. look at the north bay valleys. santa rosa, upper 30s. mid 30s in ukiah through mendocino county. for the majority this is a pretty mild morning. it's really not terribly cold out there. we will see air quality stay the same which means it will look hazy today. the forecast from the air quality management district has us at moderate which is good because it could be unhealthy for sensitive groups which is not. we are holding in the moderate
category. daytime highs will go to the low 60s. those low 60s will be paired with plenty clouds. there is maybe even a drop of rain off the coast, very insignificant. it just tells us how thick the clouds are at higher elevations. the clouds stay with us all day. tonight, watch what happens. northerly flow clears the clouds. for tuesday we will have a blue sky day. there might be a few that show up by late in the day but for the most part this is the last day we'll be under the influence of the pattern which has shown steady continuous clouds that make for great sun sets but very gray, overcast looking afternoons. it will be nice to get a break from that and we will starting tomorrow, not today. plenty mid and upper # 0s. we will get a warming trend as well as we clear the clouds. let's get an update on the
drive. thank you. let's look at the roadways now. if you are taking 101 along the peninsula, things are at the limit. if you have an early flight you should be good to go heading to sfo. right now we are not seeing brake lights on 880. things are pretty quiet. there are a couple things you want to look for as you head out. we have an accident on the 680 south bound entry to 84 as you head into the sunol grade. there is a crash there. it's not causing brake lights or issues. i should say it is causing brake lights and issues. there is another trouble spot that may be adding to that. pleasanton sunol road, there is a fallen tree and power cables in the road way. 680 is at the limit. brake lights and delays are minimal but they are there as you approach the area. we are tracking ever so
slightly slower speeds but once you are past that, everything is free flowing. 65, 67 miles per hour clocking in nice speeds for the ride into the altamont pass which is great news. as we look at our live shot, there are a few people commuting. we won't see as many as we typically do on a regular weekday but it is okay, moving at the limit for the most part. east shore freeway is quiet, highway 4 and 101. a quick live look at 880, nimitz freeway, both directions off to a great start with no delays. things are fairly quiet as you work through oakland. there are changes to public transit. i will have that coming up in my next report. >> thanks. in a bizarre turn fed ex apparently wants to arm some cargo planes with antimissile systems. according to faa documents fed ex is asking permission to modify some planes with lasers

looking at the trans america pyramid. it's very representative of what it looks like pretty much bay area wide today. we are not looking at fog with a few minor exceptions, maybe a little bit patchy fog for some of the east bay at the oakland airport. but you see from the view looking towards the east, we don't have anything too widespread and visibility map shows the same story. temperatures are pretty warm. most of us are in the mid to upper 40s. you won't need the jacket unless you are in the north bay valleys where it is 38. i will have the whole forecast in a bit. back to you. >> thank you. time for a look at the entertainment headlines. grammy award winning zack brown band is going on tour. the out of the middle tour kicks offer in greenville south carolina in april and has a stop in oakland in november. tickets go on sale january 21.
