9:05 am
school in san francisco and farmers market next to the school. san francisco supervisor gordon moore says he helped sign ignatius college prep high school in the sunset mercantile farmers market come to an agreement over the use of 37th avenue. the two sides were at odds after saying ignatius said it wanted to close the farmer's market on sundays when it hosted school events now, according to the richmond review, the market will be scaled back on some sundays when st ignatius has those big events. new this morning, san francisco's interim district attorney, brooke jenkins, was paid more than $100,000 by a group connected to the main funders of the chase boudin recall effort, according to new financial documents filed with the city ethics commission, the nonprofit group neighbors for a better san francisco pay jenkins that money for consulting work, a different group with nearly the same name neighbors for a better, said francisco advocacy was the main funder of the recall. the same billionaire is on the board of both groups. jenkins had previously said that she was a volunteer with the recall campaign. the payment was first reported by the sf standard. now

9:07 am
hoops with the cdc to get permission to give these these pills to a person suffering and it could take days. right now. there are 1300 confirmed cases of monkeypox and california. san francisco has the most of any county with more than 500 cases . according to data from the cdc. there are now more than 8000 confirmed cases of monkeypox across the country, and there are concerns about more infections. with the start of the school year, however, officials say only a handful of children across the us have contracted the disease. right now. federal health authorities are focused on vaccine distribution and testing worldwide. there are more than 30,000 confirmed cases of monkeypox. the fda has now authorized smaller doses of the monkey pox vaccine in order to stretch limited supplies. people can now receive just 20% of the usual dose and still be protected against monkeypox. the new approach calls for administering the vaccine with an injection just under the skin rather than into deep tissue. so
9:08 am
it's a finer, smaller needle and people might be used to this administration already, because if you've gotten a skin tv test is the same kind of administration which is right under the surface of the skin. so you see a little bubble when you get the vaccine. this is not a vaccine when you're getting a tv test, but it's the same idea. more than 1.5 million americans are considered to be high risk for contracting monkeypox vaccinating that group would require more than three million vaccines. white house officials say the smaller doses will multiple the current supply to more than two million doses. you can stay up to date with the latest on the monkey pox virus online. just visit ktvu dot com for the latest updates on when and where you can get your shots . oakland mayor libby chef is going into the neighborhoods of oakland meeting with people while they can't or won't come to city hall to talk with her. last night, the mayor held an outdoor meeting in east oakland at arroyo viejo recreation center about 30. people gathered to talk about the problems they see and listen to what the mayor
9:09 am
said about trashing their neighborhoods, homeless encampments and violence. people are on edge, and we have got to retrain people to resolve conflicts without violence. the meetings follow last weekend's violence, including two shootings in downtown oakland, including one in which a 35 year old man was killed. the victim, joshua barnes, was already was always there to help his neighbors and took part in neighborhood cleanups. community involvement was called one of the solutions to oakland's problems. but one man said he wants to see more interaction between police and people in the neighborhood. they knew our parents and you know, and we don't get that anymore. and i truly believe that that would make a difference if that would happen. mayor schaaf is holding two more such community meetings this week. tonight she'll be in north oakland park tomorrow, she'll be at san antonio park right near lake merritt, the city of oakland now has to give at least a week's notice before shutting down a homeless encampment. the city council agreed to a settlement in 2018
9:10 am
lawsuits from people experiencing homelessness who sued after the camp they were living in was shut down and many of their belongings destroyed. as part of the agreement, the city has to provide that extended notice as well as take better care of people's things. oakland says it will also avoid clearing camps during rain or extreme weather. the state is launching a review of san francisco's housing development approval practices. a new report shows it takes more than 2.5 years from the time developers submit their project plans to get approval to when they received all the permits they need. the state averages just slightly more than a year. the long delay can force developers to cancel the projects because construction and material costs have risen in that time. san francisco already has some of the highest building costs in the state. allergy flare ups tend to be worse in the springtime, but even the summer heat can lead to a scratchy throat or a running nose coming up here from doctors who say warmer weather can worsen the discomfort. and after the break
