7:02 am
enough now calling on congressional leaders to do something about people stealing these items and selling them online. they want to protect the consumer and then really just prevent these thieves from selling their goods online. making a profit. some of the top executives in this coalition. our from cbs health best buy and nordstrom and we've seen a lot of these retailers here in the bay area. get ransacked in the letter that they wrote from this coalition. they said it says as millions of americans have seen on the news in recent weeks and months retailers of all kinds of seen an uptick in organized crime. the letter continued to say this trend has hurt businesses and increased consumer exposure to unsafe and dangerous counterfeit products in recent months, house and senate members introduced versions of legislation which seek to fight the sale of stolen and counterfeit products sold online by
7:03 am
increasing transparency. this legislation backed by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle is advocating for online retail marketplaces to confirm the identities of high volume 3rd party sellers. some say this will help prevent people from selling stolen goods online. the various retail executives endorsed the bill saying it should make it harder for criminals to hide behind these fake screen names while evading law enforcement in the letter to congress. the major retailers wrote. it is time for this legislation to pass like this. they really in favor of it. they said both law enforcement and retailers have the same goal and this piece of legislation really aligns with that. and that's preventing stolen goods from being stolen on our show so sold online right. i mean, i know you feel like everybody wants to win. we're shopping. we want a good deal. if i had known something was stolen. then you wouldn't buy it. so they're trying to take like taken off the market right. exactly. and a lot of times
7:04 am
these people have no idea that they may be buying something that was stolen, say from. norcia and be right. all right. thank you very much, sara. let's see if that's effective. find out 7, '03, another big story that we're following. bay area counties taking steps because they want to prevent and head off a holiday surge in covid case. that's right. so at least 2 bay area counties now adjusting their mask mandates. as a result. >> kron four's will tran standing by live in san jose to explain. good morning. well. >> good morning, james. instead of giving the green light there say wait a minute, let's continue with the red light, meaning the mask mandate is not going anywhere in santa clara county. they're saying that 79% of the population is fully vaccinated and that is a wonderful thing because that 80% that's the jumping off point when they start making decisions like possibly removing the mask mandate. but they know all too well. just last year when we had covid-19 not even the variants covid-19. we saw an
7:05 am
uptick in cases during the winter months when people are indoors. a lot more often then say the summer months and they expect that to go up. that's why they're telling the county the health department is telling the county do not remove your mask mandate. keep it in place for now, for the immediate future. this follows what alameda county did just a couple of days ago they were set to lift the mask mandate in a couple of days from now, but they saw the numbers. they saw the history and they're saying no way. let's keep the mask mandate in place. if you're working indoors, if you have to go to indoor places. keep your mask on because they're not even at 79% vaccination rate among their population. so they're actually behind santa clara county. that's why they want to keep it up as well. san francisco county also was set to lift their mask mandate over the past over the next couple of days. but that looks like that's going to be set for the next few weeks or so
7:06 am
because it has to align. james and area where pros at this now. right. everything needs to be a line and then maintain for about 3 weeks. if the numbers don't jump, then they will re evaluate, but the numbers are starting to climb, not to mention, you know, history write, i mean, with the winter months they saw the uptick in omicron seems to be even more insidious than, say, your garden variety covid-19 mask up. good day to wear it anyway because it is cold. look at this. i feel like i'm in from the sears tower. >> thick gloves out. thank you will 7. '06, right now are in county. health officials are shifting how they move forward it with covid policies and mandate. historically the daily case. rates have been the main way to determine the progress of the decisions. now the county wants to use hospitalization rates instead, they say that fewer cases are leading to hospitalizations and deaths far less now because 85% are in county. residents are fully
7:07 am
vaccinated. the new criteria for deciding whether to impose different mandates is 5 covid hospitalizations per 100,000 residents. so in county that the 13 people in the hospital because of covid marin's local mask mandate was lifted last month, but they did a survey of a grocery stores and they found 1892% of people continue to wear their masks indoors even though they are just written recommended, not required at this point. >> the president of california's medical board says that she's been stocked by a group of anti-vaxers christina lawson, who is also the former mayor walnut creek says that this white suv. she took a photo of it. it was parked in front of her parking garage at work. she says that's where 4 men jumped out with cameras and confronted her. she says they identified themselves as being members of the organization. america's frontline doctors, which is a group that's known to criticize covid-19 vaccine. she also took a picture of the same suv exceed here. parked outside her house cuts across
7:08 am
the supervisor. the county supervisor. john joyce says that there's been more and more of these types of incidents. now during this pandemic. >> we're just seeing this very divisive partisan atmosphere in our country today. and i appeal to those who who who threaten others look, it's ok to express your opinion. don't personally take this out on other people in ways that harm their safety. >> you know, walnut creek. police say that at this point no actual crime has been committed, but they are keeping an eye hope. this doesn't escalate. >> 7. '08, right now and things are escalating in county over covid restrictions. take a look at one of the messages left at a business it's as if the vaccine mandate is lifted within one week. this place burns and this is a business enforcing a mandate didn't make the rules kron four's. dan thorn has story. >> a menacing message taped to
7:09 am
