4:09 pm
fire created a sense of urgency to accelerate their progress. in the newsroom, stephanie sierra, abc 7 news. kristen: stephanie, california is so vast. what areas is pg&e planning to prioritize? stephanie: they told us the main priorities will be protecting critical facilities like hospitals and fire stations and looking at a variety of factors including existing infrastructure to see where it logistically, it makes the most sense to put these power lines underground. we asked them how many miles of power lines have been installed to date underground, 10,000 being the long-term goal, but they have not received an exact estimate, the company is still assessing that figure, so more to come on that. kristen: stephanie, thank you. right now this area has 38,000 being affected. it is not connected to pg&e's

4:34 pm
that is up for a vote tomorrow? what are you considering? >> we are bringing a resolution that really raises the visibility over how all of the misinformation about vaccines and covid-19 harm other people. we have a resolution that we developed with our health department that really declares this misinformation in and of itself to be a public health crisis, because when someone puts out misinformation, it is relied on by many other people. people that choose not to get vaccinations. that impacts the community at large. we just want to shine a light on this. we respect that people have their own opinions, but they are not entitled to have their own set of facts. so we are going to daylight this, talk about it, and draw attention to it. dan: this was such a huge problem at the beginning of the pandemic and it persisted all
4:35 pm
the way through, whether it was how it was transmitted, whether vaccines work or don't work, on and on. do you think misinformation is still a significant issue obviously you do, because you are taking this action, but why is it such a problem all these months later? >> it is still a problem. the good news is it is less of a problem than it was, just by virtue of the fact that 87% of people 12 and older in our county have received at least one vaccination, and 82% are fully vaccinated. so, if you think about it, nearly 90% of our residents have trust in the vaccine and have gotten vaccinated. so, people are voting with shots in their arms, saying, we agree with the science, we are going to get vaccinated. but. that vocal minority has an impact, especially in lower income communities that have lower vaccination rates.
4:36 pm
so we are working with trusted messengers physicians, but clergy, pastors and ministers who put the message out about the science and the safety and effectiveness of this vaccine. so we are working with partners, because getting the last 10% to 15% vaccinated is harder, and that is why we want to clear up the misinformation. dan: you and your fellow hunter county board of supervisors will meet tomorrow to discuss this and perhaps vote -- contra costa county board of supervisors. what will this vote and declaration actually do? john: the vote will happen tomorrow, and what it will do is put our board and county on record to say, "this misinformation is a public health crisis and it hurts all of us," which draws more attention when we try to get good, factual, science-based

4:44 pm
my sisters used to use my heart will cars all the time. they are [laughter] [laughter] not just for one gender anymore. i am loving this. kristen: the problem is when somebody else like the game manufacturer tells you what gender the toy should be for. the problem is for when they think that an engineering toy should be for boys only. so yeah, it is nice to let the choice be made by the kid and the parent. dan: let kids decide what they want. kristen: exactly. all right, flight attendants are trading in their heels were sneakers on ukraine's airlines. the airline said it decided to put an end heels and skirts after getting feedback from its female cabin crew. attendants will now where white nikes and a loosefitting orange suit with trousers. one flight attendant told cnn, " the whole world is wearing sneakers, so why not bring it to aviation?" she added, "god forbid if the crew had to do a water landing and evacuation in heels and a skirt." [laughter]

nice to see this. what do you guys think. like the idea, spencer? spencer: i think it is a neat idea. again, there are things the flight crew may have to test were performed at would be eased in this kind of attire than in heels. dan: and obviously, you know flight attendants, part of their role is to make passengers but the most important thing they do is provide for our safety and in an emergency, trying to run around in heels or kick off your heels and be barefoot is simply not safe. the male flight attendants would be wearing "sensible shoes" that would be more versatile in the situation. why not allow the women to do the same? drew: i think they would be happy working as a flight attendant and have sneakers on. kristen: i think many carriers will be adopting something like this. i don't see the asian carriers losing the heels addresses anytime soon. dan: it does make sense.
