Warriors' plan aims to allow 50% fan capacity
"Ramona. How are you? God are you guys doing and we're hanging in there. So tell us about this. This operation Dub nation that the Joe Lake up is trying to pull off here so funny that it's called that right like it's like the Manhattan Project, right? Uh, you know, it's literally is every morning every Monday morning at 9 A.m.. They have this passport. That operation Dub Nation and been doing this for eight months on guy. Think what I think What is so interesting about this one is First of all, you know, we should We should We're you know, we should point out to everyone that The state of health. Weight is not allow anything like this right now. So this is a plan that has been submitted to the city and the county in California. I think the Warriors have already done a lot of work in terms of Explaining the science and proving the science to the public health officials and to the politicians were going to make the final call on this. It's not great timing. If you think about it right now we just have a press conference from the mayor's office where they were like Yeah, we're gonna have to start rolling things that we've seen the incidence of coronavirus spike this week. I think next week we're going to see even more roll back. This is what's happening across the country that is somewhat inevitable. We talking about the colder weather people being indoors more. Um, but, you know, I think you just kind of have to understand the math here right? And what the actual game changing part of this planet, which is We're talking about this is this is the part that I actually think is the most important when we're talking about, Okay, we have to close indoor guiding, or we have to close occupancy in a gym. Or we have to limit activity and indoor spaces like the movies here for. I don't know who's going to movie theaters right now, But okay. Not me. Sorry. Those types of rollbacks for seeing that is based off of The what's called the incidents of like a new cases per 100,000. Okay, right now in the bay Area that 9.9 per day. Okay, um, that that's 9.9 cases. Per 100,000. It's growing. But that's also based on this idea that you don't know amongst the people who are coming into your indoor restaurants or indoor gym or indoor space. How many of them are positive because you're not doing any testing. But if you're doing testing You have a different you have a different knowledge about who's actually in your space, right? If you test everyone who walks through that door, you're only vulnerability is the accuracy and sensitivity of the test. Correct. You understand everybody. Obviously we're well aware of that. Yes. Okay. Now the accuracy and sensitivity is a really big deal because most of the rapid tests that you see them like the infamous White House Rose Garden Super spreader event, which we have You know what you have. People continue to test positive for and then again on election night. They're using a rapid test that is in an urgent that based test Now people lies start to glaze over when you start to explain the difference here, But I'll just Do it in terms of the antigens that based test It couldn't have between 30 and 50% of infected people. It's not that accurate, okay, it'll generally effective, you know, but it's not. It's like it's better than nothing. And it definitely has some uses if you're using it. Let's say at school or or in a college where you're testing the same people every single day. So every single time you test somebody that gives a better chance. You're gonna catch it right, especially Because people generally don't become infectious with Cove it and tell day three or day four of infection. So let's say you were you caught it. It didn't catch you on day one. It didn't catch one day to It didn't catch you on day three because the energon test doesn't catch it before Day four, Okay? But my day 56 or seven it should catch you one of those days of your testing every day. The PCR based test which the Warriors are talking about, that's a rapid test. It's 15 minutes. Shallow nasal swab. I think that's important for people to understand Shallow like booger level, Okay, Like, like, you know. Yeah, I think about touching very descriptive brain booger level. Okay, levels go down. Bacon burger level, Okay, And this test is 99% accurate. There's only three companies who have earned emergency FDA authorization to make these tests. Okay, One of them's in the Bay Area of Bisbee. Started by a Stanford grad. Let's claim that some Stan forgot myself, then the other tours to the palace for yet they're the one called Q Health and Mesa by a text. They just started making these things this summer and this fall, so that's how like when you see Saturday Night live, that's what senator lives is using. They're using that kind of testing. Plus, they're wearing masks. Those tests generally caused 152 $100 a test. Okay like that very expensive to do on a large scale. You could do it at small venues and like I was reading it three. You're really interesting. New York Times story about this. And, uh, it was August when the first started to get get approved. They were calling that this is this is the new velvet ropes. Rapid PCR test of the new velvet rope like if you wanna have a gathering, If you want to have an event, you've seen this like in small parties. Small gathering. And even when you do those rapid PCR test, you should still wear a mask. Some people some places hasn't like they had a doctor featured in that New York Times story.

Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery Service expands to 4,000-plus cities
"Its service that lets drivers deliver packages in sight garages. Matt, how does it work? So you just have to have a garage door opener that can connect to a nap and ask PM's on prime members, but something they've gone through all of that, you know, they can sign up for for a delivery. The delivery driver code that pops open the door at the appointed time when they arrive, and, you know allegedly those. The driver places the item, you know, just inside the threshold door closes and they call good. This is sort of an expansion of the program that they launched a couple years ago. Amazon key That's right. And originally it was based on in house delivery. Right? They do the same kind of rigmarole before smart door locks. You know that one kind of turned some people off to the idea of letting someone directly in the House Amazons making a bet here that People are getting more comfortable with with garage entry in your front door, and then with the ups drivers also have the same access. They won't not as part of this pilot. This is limited sort of Amazon delivery contractors that they it's not direct employees, but they have more direct control than that Amazon does with with other full collect ups and FedEx. See, that seems to be the rub. Because with the Amazon drivers, they're all different people all the time. I mean, you never know who's coming. U. P s driver tends to be the regular guy on your route. That's right. And then Amazon has has really created a bit of a wild West. With all the growth they've seen in their own delivery network. You know, they started plenty of firms and encouraging their little delivery start ups all over the country, so it's definitely a little bit of It'll be chaos right there. Yeah, come. Customers know they don't always wear uniforms. So you don't really know. You know, the pullup like it in a Chevy with no uniform on and come to the door with this stuff. I mean, I wonder how comfortable people will be letting what looks like perfect strangers into the garage. It's my understand that this program is exclusively people who are are in the Amazon vehicle wearing an Amazon best write the part of that standardization they worked on in recent years. But I think you're exactly right that consumers have raised concerns about particularly the sort of Contractor quality recently as they've expended their own services. What about that camp indoor camera that they had some people used to, you know, so you could see the person coming into your home. Yeah, they're still technically selling that And there it was subsidiary called Ring. That was the whole bunch of security cameras and they've got more, but they're always rolling out. I think that was definitely maybe a warning sign or an asterisk. One day. Lots of service initially was no. If you've got a pair it with the camera to make sure you know everybody's behaving properly then it might not be. Yeah, might not be too reassuring for customers. Okay, So have they started this garage? Think already. You don't have it with live in 50 cities Originally. Now it's expanding 4000, Amazon says. So clearly they liked what they saw in those those first test beds, and now we're ready to take it nationally across the US and doesn't do any of the test sites include the Bay Area. You do? Yeah, I think actually, the San Francisco that was in the initial market that they started with, but I'm not positive. Okay, thanks for

California Votes To Keep Criminal Justice Changes
"Was a good day for criminal justice reformers. In California statewide voters resoundingly defeated a ballot measure that would have rolled back some reforms. And voted to give people on parole the right to vote in the Bay Area. Six police Accountability measures enjoyed strong support, and San Francisco's former district attorney, George Gascon, appears to be winning in his challenge to the more conservative sitting Los Angeles D A. But voters did reject an attempt to end money bail. Here to sort out what All this means is cake politics correspondent Marissa Lagos. Marissa, You have been covering criminal justice reform efforts in California for over a decade now, were you surprised by these results? You know, I wasn't surprised Hera. But I do think that it is a huge win for the reform side of things. I mean, we've heard for years ever since some of these changes started coming through both legislatively and at the ballot box. A lot of pushback from law enforcement and other folks who saw them is going to far and I think that voters weighing in s O decisively on both proposition 20 rejecting some of these rollbacks of reforms and also on some of these police oversight measures really does show a shift an opinion. I spoke to Kate Chatfield, she's policy director at the Justice Collaborative, which is a national pro reform group. She knows that proposition. 20 wasn't even close. Even though law enforcement worked really hard to make the case to voters standing is all the usual cards in the deck. You know the Willie Horton playbook, crime is increasing the fear based mailers in the voter saw through them. And Kate, of course, is referring to that. 1988 Presidential Willie Horton ad The really helped Republicans win and I think that you know, while the No 1 20 side spend a lot more money than the outside, and I think some folks see that is, you know, money talks. I do think that Given how much we've heard talked about these issues that voters it seems like they knew what they were weighing in on and just didn't want, Teo turn the tide back the other direction. Yeah, you know, proposition 25 that was aimed at Indian cash. Bail was pretty suddenly defeated. What happened there? Yeah, This is a really interesting one. I mean, I think there's a couple things happening. One is that you didn't have the same coalition on the left really backing this reform. There's a schism with a lot of people kind of on the more progressive wing of The Democratic Party. The bail industry also spent a lot of money on this, and I think that the combination of them targeting folks in places like Riverside County and more conservative counties with some of the doubt that was cast by progressives probably was the reason they were able to build this coalition against prop 25. But it does feel like if you look at the kind of universe of all these that that is a bit of an outlier. It was a very complicated questions, so that may have been part of it. So do you think these results could actually encourage state lawmakers to go even further in the future? I do. Although I don't expect to see any dramatic huge reforms come out of the Legislature. I think we'll see what we've seen in years past, which is piecemeal attempts to kind of dismantle some of the harsher sentencing laws. I do think from the outside that we're going to see more pressure from advocacy groups to push the Legislature further. It's worth noting that just before the election The Sisters of Polly class who was one of the crime victims who has really helped spur the three strikes movement in California, came out to say that they want to see reforms and that they are unhappy with the way three strikes when the way their sister's name was used. So lawmakers may not go as far as voters, but they're going to get some pressure. Well, thanks

"And it's expected to make landfall tomorrow. And KCBS reporter Melissa Call Ross tells us it grew from an ordinary cyclone into the strongest storm of the year in just 24 hours. Super Typhoon Goni is expected to pack a punch when it hits north East of Manila because, says Golden Gate Weather Service's consulting meteorologist Jan No. It's traveling over lots of open water and then you go into the Manila Bay area, So you have a fairly strong storm without it, Dick Avery much by the time it gets over these populated areas, is that Moving over a land mass or anything like that. Helen Minor grew up in the Philippines and now is co owner of the Paraguay Luton Pino, a restaurant in San Leandro, She says the Filipino people are accustomed to almost anything when it comes to these storms. For me, the type of woman that we get It's just become to be a normal for us. Even if there's a high wind and rain storm. We blew up going outside and just lay on the rain. But she does recognize how big Goni is. We talked to our family and back home and they are prepared. They just have to stay home super typhoons or the equivalent of Category four or higher hurricanes. Alyssa Call Ross KCBS.
In-Person Voting Expands Across the Bay Area
"And guy in person. Voting is kicking off today across the Bay Area. Can you give us some of the details? Sure. It's so big picture. There will be fewer places to vote in person this year in the Bay Area, But to make up for that many counties are opening up dozens of locations starting today and basically offering four full days of in person voting. Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and in some counties like Alameda and Sonoma. This is going to be a new experience for voters to kind of wake up on the Saturday before the election and have so many places open for voting. I'll just quickly say reminder. If you are planning to vote today since every California voter got mailed a ballot, you should bring your blank mail ballot in with you because County might need you to return that to avoid you having to cast the provisional ballot, all right, And if you have one of those ballots that you filled out, can you go to one of these polling places and just drop it off? That's right. If you filled out your mail ballot at home, you can bring it into a voting location. Or you can use a county drop box. At this point, though, election officials there saying Don't put it in a U. S. P s and mailbox. You don't wanna have any issues with the collection time and missing that. So at this point, if you filled out your mail in ballot at home, it's best to bring it into a voting location or dropping in a county
California confirms first simultaneous flu and coronavirus infection in one patient
"Officials feared it was coming and now a Bay area resident. Tested positive for covert 19 and the flu. KCBS is Kathy Novak. Reports say it's a reminder to everyone to get a flu shot as the pandemic continues into the winter. Getting vaccinated against the flu is more important than ever, says Solano County health officer Dr Balin. Mathieu. The immune system is going to be very taxed Fighting off just one Never mind both of the viruses at the same time. And that's what we're most worried about. We're worried about having a much worse outcome for people who are elderly or for people with severe underlying health conditions, he says. Fortunately, the person who got both viruses simultaneously is young and healthy and hasn't been hospitalized. But, he says it's also a reminder that social distancing protects against the flu as well as Cove it which has been surging in the county because of a string of large gatherings. Well, we've been finding in our own county is that the very vast majority of people who get Cove it over 90%.

"Tonight Democrats will wrap up their national convention with a speech from their presidential nominee Joe Biden. Next week it's the Republicans turn and President Donald Trump will take center stage. Now. There's no question that today, the Nine County Bay area is solidly blue, but it hasn't always been this way bay furious listener Marcus wants to know when and why did the bay area become overwhelmingly cerebral you chose Marcus question in our march public voting around and today we'll bring you some answers. I'm Olivia, Allen Price and this is being curious. If, you ask some of the biggest names in Bay area politics when the region became. So Liberal, you get a lot of different answers and I think it begins with the origins of the city in the gold rush. So sometime around eighteen fifty, but maybe it was more like the nineteen fifties with the beats. There's this whole subculture of pot-smoking jazz loving poetry writing painting making. People or maybe he was ten years later, if you had to look at the one seminal event that changed things, it was the passage of the civil rights. Act In nineteen, sixty four, there's truth in all that here to explain the evolution of Bay Area Liberalism is committee politics editor Scott Scheffer. It's a little hard to imagine now but one of the most conservative candidates ever picked as the Republican nominee for president was nominated right here in the super liberal fifty shades blue bear. That's right. Arizona Senator and conservative icon Barry Goldwater was nominated at the nineteen sixty four Republican convention at the Cow Palace at the southern edge of San Francisco. Remind you. That extremism. Liberty is nobody. got crushed by Lyndon B Johnson. Who Won California by a landslide still in the nineteen sixties, the nine county bay area still had plenty of Republican officeholders. But. The seeds of change had been planted by transplants to the city people like our nose and over the years what I call a cultural ideology has evolved in San Francisco from that time where people come to the city seeking opportunity and freedom. Agnes Liberal Democrat who represented San Francisco in the state assembly before getting elected mayor was one of the many people who came to San Francisco and ended up in politics. Some of the brilliant politicians we see today whether it's Nancy Pelosi whether it is comma. Harris. Willie Brown Leo McCarthy Phil Burton. All of them came to this city Phil. Burton remember that name because I'm GONNA come back to it. But I another one of those people who headed to San Francisco in search of something better. My name is Willy Rome of San Francisco at one time I was holder of public office both at the state level and at the local I was mayor Willie Brown landed in California from Texas in nineteen fifty one he enrolled at what is now San Francisco State University. Brown was steered toward politics by the end ACP which talked about the kinds of things he never heard in. Texas while they talk about things like black people becoming police officers, black people driving buses. Black people becoming deputy sheriff's black people over and becoming fireman back then. Brown. Says the political division wasn't left or right red or blue, and there was a separation of newcomers and old. We didn't call them liberals within call him conservatives but they were newcomers timers that was in the mid Fifties San. Francisco still had a pretty vibrant Republican Party in nineteen, fifty five, for example, the city elected a Republican George Christopher as the city's mayor in a landslide. But there was also a strong alternate culture developing with beat generation writers like Allen Ginsberg. Hand says USF political science professor, James, Taylor, part of that wave of migration. We're black folks from the south they were not run of the mill. Talent attempt the of the best they came to the West Coast and it liberalized be area because it diversified it today much of the city's black residents have left town pushed out by urban development and the high cost of living.

"Everyone it's Olivia Allen price and this is bay curious. This Friday is June nineteenth, but to many people. It's much more than that. It's June. Teeth a celebration of freedom. The holiday has been around since the late eighteen hundreds, but it may take on a new residence this year given the protest for racial justice happening across the country. A few major local employers have even made June eighteenth a paid holiday for their staff. Here at bay curious, we like to keep our eyes on search engine trends and we've noticed a lot of locals are asking what is June. Teeth so I up. We've got a quick primer for you from reporter assaults on a poor. For one weekend each year, thousands of people come together at the Lauren district in south. Berkeley, you'll see drummers traditional African clothes, street vendors, selling barbecue and an exhibit, documenting local black history is all for Berkeley's annual June teen festival, which the city celebrated almost every year since nineteen eighty. It some AB- rates the black experience. That's what I always tell people, Dolores not cooper has been organizing Berkeley's June eighteenth festival for the past thirty three years June teen stands for June nineteenth, and it was the day that general granger road into Galveston Texas on June nineteen, eighteen, sixty five, and let the slaves. They are know that they were free in. This was two years after the Mansa proclamation. This was the last group of enslaved people. People to learn, they'd been freed. The celebration evolved into June teams an annual holiday commemorating their emancipation delores says it's meant to remember the nightmare of slavery while celebrating the resilience of the African American community, we have to to our own horn and let people know that what we've done is significant without our contribution. America just simply would not be America so June teeth puts black joy and culture, front and center through food, frightening dance and music. The more you know, the more familiar you are, the better you feel, and it's not just. Oh, I like that music, and all I like the culture kind of thing, but just knowing black people as individuals. That have the same needs and wants as everybody else, but this year is June. Team will look a bit different, so we are doing an online commentary with writings from riders artists about the Penn Dim make about civil unrest about the current status of black lies. delores says they're calling this virtual event. No justice, no emancipation. She says the organizers will publish daily commentaries by black artists about how they're. They're processing the current moment. One article draws comparisons between protesters and comic book characters. Another is about running while black in response to the killing of a Motte Arboretum Dolores, says the at the end of the celebration she'll compile the writing into a magazine so that people have a keepsake to remember this June teams by the civil unrest makes us hopeful about the future in America and the changes that. potentally can come.

"Or up to several days. But that depends on a lot of different factors like environmental conditions. What kind of surface? It is how warm it is in the room the humidity so it's a little hard to say right now. Exactly how long will ask so? You know my instinct would just be cleaned the DOORKNOB if possible or not. Touch it with my hand. And what about the air? We have a question about Ken. The virus linger in the air. Let's say you get out of an elevator and somebody writing before you had corona virus. Yeah this is an area that sort of up for debate right now. There have been some preliminary studies that show. Ronna virus can linger in the air for a couple of hours but those studies haven't been pure reviewed yet and so I think in general folks. Just have to take as much precaution as possible and really practice those social distancing measures have been recommended by the CDC and other public health officials. So the next question is is there a way we can see what neighborhoods people with virus are located in? So we can know where to be the most careful. I think that might be the wrong way to look at it. We know not very much testing has been done. At least not a sufficient amount of testing has been done. We should be looking at it as how to follow best practices all over the bay area. So whether you're in the hate or if you're in so much like you should follow the same health practices that you would anywhere else. Even as people are trying to move around less were still moving around a lot. You know someone who woke up in The Hague who you know may have gone to. I don't know a farmer's market in Palo Alto later in the week you know quickly could could move somethin' from one place to another. I think one of their issue is you know a lot of people potentially could have it. Who aren't getting tested. Especially if you know you're a healthier person and you're not exhibiting some of the more severe symptoms. This virus can also be symptomatic so you could have it and have no symptoms so I think that we all just have to act with an abundance of caution and like I said before not necessarily just for us but for the other people in our lives who are immuno-compromised who are over the age of sixty who could have a really negative reaction to this virus if they got it. Let's talk about the people who are currently experiencing some kind of illness Maybe it's cold. Maybe it's the flu. Maybe it's corona virus. One listener wants to know. Why can't I get tested for the virus? There just aren't enough test to go around. I mean that's the short answer. Is You know we've heard a lot recently about the CDC and other struggling to get enough test to test folks who are showing symptoms of Corona virus. So that's one of the reasons I think if folks are sick they can follow some basic guidelines. Which is stay home? We'll start there stay home. Don't go to work. Try Not to go like a lot of interactions with other people and then getting contact with your primary care. Doctor Tell them what your symptoms are. Tell them where you've been. Tell them who you've been in contact with. And then they can help make that assessment for you just taking really slow and deliberate of steps at that. Point might be the best way to go forward. A lot of workplaces are sending employees home for two weeks. You know saying everyone. We're GONNA work from home for the next two weeks. What is it about two weeks that is kind of wise? It become this sort of standard amount of time. Yes so I think in part is that this virus has a fourteen day incubation period. So at the end of those two weeks folks should know whether or not they're sick and be able to take appropriate action but I think the real answer is that fourteen days is conservative. And it's sort of A. We're going to try this for fourteen days and see how it goes and then if they need to extend the amount of time that folks are kept out of work. They likely well. That's that's totally my conjecture. But nobody wants to send workers home for a month or two months and there's also a thought that the krona virus could be like the flu which tends to clear up in the spring and summer months and I think a lot of people are hoping that the corona virus will do the same thing and that by the time we hit April. May It will have dissipated. I WanNa talk a little bit also about what's happening here in the bay area like what our communities and governments doing to to help. Stop the spread of this thing. Yeah so as of the time a recording this Oakland San Francisco and Santa Clara counties. Have all band large events of more than a thousand people I mean basketball games concerts performances and other big public events will not be taking place for a certain period of time. And that's really to keep the virus from spreading between large groups of people and then we've also seen a lot of recommendations by local governments to really practice social distancing you know they're encouraging telecommuting and San Francisco recently There was a proposed package of legislation from the Board of supervisors which would help out with some of the lost money. While people are out of work it would try to put a moratorium on fictions to prevent people from becoming une housed and then San Francisco has also set up some quarantine sites for homeless residents so that they can have a location ago too. If it's found that they have contracted the novel coronavirus. Now we have a number of listeners. Who are looking at what's happening in Italy and what happened in Wuhan and wondering you know could have time come where we would be quarantined. It's hard to say it's kind of hard to imagine you know when I saw this question. I my first response was no of course not but then as I looked into it. I I saw federal official saying you know. They don't believe that that's what's going to happen. But they can't take anything off the table right now on a day by day basis. It seems like the cases are growing. But that's something that we expect it to happen. As the testing capacity grew we knew that more cases would be confirmed. This story is moving. It's fluid and we'll have to wait and see right and you know you're covering this you know so closely that right now. I'm are there any precautions that you are taking personally? So I'm participating in social distancing. I've been working from home. I have been washing my hands much longer and much more frequently. Every time I get home from being outside at all I wash my hands. I've been doing more skype calls and facetime calls with friends which is a little odd. But it's one way that helps me prevent from feeling isolated from my community and then I'm just trying to be you know mindful of of what I touch who I interact with to make sure that I'm not spreading anything around at this point. It seems like those are the best steps that we can take. So I've been taking those steps hygiene hygiene hygiene. Yeah my hands are very dry now though we do have one last question and perhaps it's a silly one but I'm thinking about everyone you know sitting at their house trying to figure out what to do. Anonymous wants to know. Does ALCOHOL CURE CORONA VIRUS. Unfortunately it does not. Wouldn't that be a fun solution? But it does not cause or cure corona virus. Alright well Michelle Wiley. Thank you so so much for taking the time to talk with us today and yeah sharing everything. No yeah thank you as you can see. There's still a lot of uncertainty about this virus and what will happen in coming weeks and months. My big takeaways from this episode were lay low. Wash your hands and remember that. Even if you're healthy or you think you're healthy. It's in the interest of overall public health for you to keep some distance from others.

"We are too. We're going to answer some of your questions today. But first a quick look back at how we got where we are in the bay area right now. Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have confirmed a case of novel Corona Virus in California. The number of novel Corona Virus Cases Continues To rise San Francisco officials have announced the first two cases among city residents one hundred and fifty seven. That's the number of confirmed corona virus cases in California reported by state public health officials to effectively retained. The virus. Thousands of people need to be tested every day. That is not happening in California anywhere in the country right. What these emergencies highlight is our basic failure of our system to serve the most vulnerable among us people who are older who have underlying chronic health conditions homeless populations the biggest thing that the see anybody has said is hygiene hygiene. I G Santa Clara County has announced a ban on public gatherings of more than a thousand people for the next three weeks in response to the virus. What happens if for example? I feel sick and call the public health department to ask for advice. Have you returned from Italy? Have you returned from Japan? Who Have you talked to? Who Have you been in close contact with? Is it is. It's extremely concerning. So that's why we should be trying to take this seriously. It's been pretty intense yesterday. The World Health Organization announced that couvert nineteen is officially a pandemic more than one hundred. Twenty thousand people are infected worldwide. Here in the bay area. We've got ninety nine confirmed cases at the time of this recording and so far three people in the state have died. This news is scary. And if you're like me you're trying to figure out how to protect yourself and those around you. You're trying to figure out. Where is the line between overreacting and under reacting ultimately there are a lot of known to this thing I can't promise you the depths or certainty of answers that we usually try to give you here on Bay curious but we're going to tell you everything we do know about the virus right now but how it's transmitted about what you should do about travel plans? And how governments are responding. We'll get into it right after this support for bay curious comes from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company family owned operated and argued over since nineteen eighty reminding listeners to think for themselves but drink with others. Sierra NEVADA DOT COM. We've been taking your questions about coronavirus and compiling answers at K. Q. E. D. Dot Org for a few weeks now Katie's Michelle Wiley is focused solely on answering some of those questions so we welcome Michelle now. Hey Michelle Hey. There's a lot of information that circling out there and it just feels like everything is changing so rapidly. How are you covering this? Someone who's trying to answer listener questions you know every day. It's just following those changes as fast as I can. You know there's a lot of information and it's coming from a lot of different places so in some way I feel pretty akin to our listeners. Being like what is going on I don't I'm hearing one thing from this place. One thing from this other place. I'm just trying to tackle it. You know one day one question at a time and I know for a while when people were talking about Corona Virus. They would say oh. Your risk of dying from influenza is greater than Corona virus. Everyone's overreacting about this. But it definitely feels like in the past week at least here in the Bay Area. Things have have shifted and people are really taking it more seriously. Why is this virus worse than the flu or a regular cold so I think when it comes to talking about better or worse should really think about it more as known and unknown when it comes to diseases like colds or the flu? We do know a fair amount about those diseases. We kind of know what time of year they tend to crop up. We have a vaccine for the flu but when it comes to a corona virus. We don't really know very much you know we. We're not sure if it's going to continue on into the spring and summer months we don't have a vaccine for it so there's just a lot that we don't know right now so. I want to dive into some of these audience questions. This first one comes from Alan Kay and he wants to know like what about riding on a bus with other people. You if you are still going to work. How do you get there on public transit safely for writing on public transportation? General Best Practices apply. So make sure you're washing your hands. Make sure you using hand sanitizer and try not to touch your face after you've touched public spaces you know. Many public transit agencies have upped their cleaning cycles. So Bart is now going through the entire train. After it completes each Lupin workers disinfect any area writer might touch so like the hand loops that you hold onto Any sort of bar you might hold onto near the doors really any area humane touch and then Muny officials also say their equipment is being cleaned daily. You know that can offer some comfort but really. It's only as clean as the last person who touched it. I think another thing that folks can take a little solace from is because ridership is down. Bart spokeswoman Militia Tro says there's a lot of space on there we don't have as much crowding and what that means is you're able to have that arm's distance space between you and someone else. We don't normally have that luxury. We have crowding during peak commute times but because we have experienced a drop in ridership you can make sure that your an arm's distance link from someone yeah. I can vouch that I rode into work yesterday. And it just felt like they were like half the people of normal okay so this next question comes from a listener. Amy and she writes. I'm a wedding photographer. And I go to a couple weddings all over the bay area every month to work. Should I cancel my work? Or what kind of precaution should I take? So as of Wednesday morning San Francisco officials did announce that they will issue a public order that will prohibit large events of a thousand people or more. So you know. If this person's worked isn't fall into that category it really depends on what they're comfortable with. And what their health status is. If you decide to go to work make sure you wash your hands. Frequently try to carry hand sanitizer and maintain some distance between yourself and others. It's one of the best ways you can keep herself and others safe. People have mentioned at risk populations. What makes somebody at risk? Big At risk populations are folks over sixty and anyone who's immuno-compromised so part of the concerns that folks have is that you know if you're a particularly healthy person you might not have an issue catching corona virus. But you could bring it back to folks who could get seriously. Ill even die from catching it. So you just want to be really careful not only for your own health and wellbeing but for the health and wellbeing of your whole community that you're not getting corona virus and spreading it another category that we've got a lot of questions in is travel. A lot of people have travel plans coming up. They want to know what to do with them. One person wrote in and they have plans currently to fly from OAKLAND TO ATLANTA ON MARCH. Twenty first and wants to know. Should I cancel? What are the risks of being on a plane with in the US for an extended period of time so he spoke with officials at the Oakland Airport in San Francisco airport and they say this time passengers should expect serve normal operations at the airport? Both have up to their cleanings quite significantly. I think the San Francisco airport has months of cleaner. They're like stockpiling to make sure that they have enough for the long haul. Essentially so there's more handwashing stations there. You should see more hand. Sanitizing stations there as well as increased cleaning staff so for this person. Who's traveling to Atlanta? I'd say you know it really depends on what you're comfortable with. And if you're comfortable traveling as oppose spokesman Geico says the best thing folks can do is just follow good hygiene practices. You're touching something that might have been touched by other people. Wash your hands. If you're unable to wash your hands use hand sanitizer. You can't do that. Avoid touching your eyes your nose or your mouth because that's really how. How a lot of types of colds and Flus Corona viruses are transmitted. One tip that we spoke about on the phone was you should try and bring a small container of hand sanitizer in your carry on that way. You don't have to get and go to the bathroom as frequently can kinda sanitize on the go at your own pace so I guess staying on sort of the same track of of airplanes. Another listener wants to know. Does it seem likely that airplanes are going to be treated like cruise ships? Are where if somebody on. Boorda's found to be sick. Maybe you know after the travel that all passengers could be quarantined. I think at this point. It's a little hard to say. So according to the CDC's guidelines if someone on board an aircraft is sick or thought to have the novel Corona Virus Airline staff are instructed to separate them from other passengers of possible provide them face mask and then once the plane lands the CDC will conduct an assessment and determine if folks who were on the plane with them need to be quarantined and of course that assessment will generally consist of is it really krona virus or is it some other illness that looks like chronic virus. I think at this point. It's probably unlikely that airplanes will be treated like cruise ships just in part because of the way that people are transported. How many people are transported? But it's Kinda hard to rule anything out and the next set of questions has to do with transmission so this listener asks if an infected person touches a doorknob.

I'm originally runner or anything. I running of the different channels here in the bay area. Since nineteen ninety three was my high school cross country team and over time it just became a passion Just love to protect these different trials that I enjoy Scarring through running. So I became a board member on the retrial and during the time period I was also circumnavigating and it was signing a each time I hiked or ran or bike Segment I always thought it was my most favorite section of the route trial so a lot of people that's kind of where the question of what's your favorite section gender your favorite view. Because every time I discovered a new section something amazing about it that I hadn't experienced in the past it made it Really easy and what was also neat about circumnavigating. The retrial is just accessibility so a lot of it was just maybe forty five minutes in a different direction so it was a lot more accessible. Looked when you kind of look at the whole big map and I was just able to switch up Maya Saturday. Ron Go someplace new so yeah so. I didn't in Less than nine and what I did is just took those moments of time that I had free To do a section of it but with people are considering of coming circumnavigators. I really think you don't have to do it in a year. Two years or three years really think about what type of experienced with light on the retrial. It could be anything from Ryan to photography to have a new spot height with your hiking group. And just get out there making your own experience when you start hiking at you. Just really searching realized the diversity of the bay area in topography and they're so much more than Trials in your backyard. Even though they're amazing beautiful old airs these experiences that are just down the road. That are completely different. Yeah Yeah it is. We can be get ten minutes away from our house. We can be out in the wilderness. It yes it's that. Yeah you're in the city and just captured a perfectly. You're literally in the city stuck in traffic and then ten minutes way. You feel like you're the only person out there. Sometimes you might only personnel on. Yeah it's it's true it's true you are the more remote and get less old and I. It really gives you. I think perspective and what we're finding out now through research is that outdoor time is really great for your health and it's now becoming a prescription from some doctors people to enjoy the outdoors.

I will have all the links for the Bay Area Ridge trail on the website. I also and something that a lot and I talked after the interview is that the Pacific coast trail runs at one of the trail run race. Companies Sponsors a Bay Bay Area Ridge race series. They had I think they have to three different races throughout the year for the Bay Area Ridge trail and it goes on parts of the rich drill. I've done one of them. I did the thirty seven. K that goes from the San Francisco because from Baker Beach and San Francisco and that goes over the bridge and then he goes out and then ends at Stinson Beach. So I've done that distance. It's really fun. It was a great race. They also have one at East Bay and I believe there is one in the South Bay too. But I'm not sure about that. But I'll put their link on the website too so you can check it out and do one of those races. They are wonderfully run. They're excellent race company. You will have a great time very fun. People run those races and volunteer work at those races. It's just a lot of fun. You will not regret it now. The thing that she mentioned is a barrier bear bait. Can I talk berry? Esa Bart Station? It's not open yet. Bart Bay Area Rapid Transit. It's our train station. It's like a quote unquote rapid train. That goes all all around. Most of the bay it's It's not that fast. Not really and they're not that fast. As far as building new stations. They usually are very late. They never come in within schedule. So there is one in northern San Jose which is about time they should have had things down to San Jose. Sooner but there's a lot of politics especially when you get in the suburbs Barry Esa. Why am I having a hard time saying that? Berry? Esa Bart stations should be open soon and there is a trail right from that Bart station. That would be really fun to follow and it'd be like I said it'll be great to have a Bart Station in San Jose. Lots of stuff in San Jose for people see but we can't get to without Bart. We could take the the train the real trains but they're massively slow and wickedly overpriced all right. There's a lot in that and I'm not even going to get into because it's not about running asked me sometime. If you see me in person.

"For our love letter to the bay area. We sent producers Jessica check and Kiana Mocha down in the night of ideas at the San Francisco Public Library. What's happening today? We recorded interviews with about forty strangers. Asking them what makes them love the Bay area and what keeps them here. That's many of you reflected on moments when you were inspired by the striking natural beauty of this place. They went all the way to Nikko Kayaking at night. Pitch Black and as we start going out more and more as my eyes to the just dark the water around my Kayak starts glowing blue. The water out there is bioluminescence and you know I was just enjoying this amazing water. That was just read literally radiating blue and it made me think about all the Times that also were on inspiring three or four days. A week I swim in the Bay and it's such an incredible experience every time the first experience wasn't it was a little scary because it was cold and I was thinking too much about. Is this too cold? Am I GONNA get hypothermic? Is a Sea Lion GonNa bite me and you know and then I would hit a piece of seaweed and get freaked out and But after a few times you just feel like you're in another world in a world that's so much bigger than you. I love the ocean views. Eleven marine I love seeing the fog. I'm just GONNA say Carl. I don't really like you that much but I'm trying to love you. I always go over to Oakland to chase the sun. Coney has some of the best county parks in the whole United States and they even have senior citizen discount for parking so now that I'm retired. I just love hiking. I started walking into the Golden Gate Park and I ran into the Bison and the vice to the bay every part of the bay area offers something beautiful to see and experience. We also heard a lot of stories. About how the culture here has delighted. You take this story from one. Lopez who I moved to the bay area as a boy in nineteen eighty nine. When we first came to America we left Nicaragua for political reasons. And we got a cheap apartment in the mission and I didn't know this was going on but I woke up to all these sounds and Saturday morning and I look outside. And my dad's already looking outside. And there's all these beautiful grows half-naked so he was like happy. We made the right choice coming to America and I was still too young hundred fully understand but I saw how happy he wasn't looking good thing so so every year now we go off the city. Still like it's got a gold rush. Feel to it like there's still like you know you know technologists trying to make their fortune and You know and the bustle that comes with that and even now so the chaos that comes with all of that and there was just like a random guy is trying to talk to the United. I ignored him and then he wrote it down your beautiful and I was like oh so sweet and it's just like just random people showing appreciation just trying to be nice kind and there's actually a lot of people here that are like that. So opportunity has always been part of the story of the Bay area from native people who flourished in our climate to the thousands of immigrants both foreign and domestic who came in search of gold for so many of you. This place is still a beacon of opportunity for careers new beginnings a place to be yourself a mechanical engineer. The give me the best opportunity to develop my career. They give me the opportunity other countries probably would not have done would not have have a woman that the what I had in this country? I'm originally from France and I was bullied a lot there and I saw coming to the Berry as like in approach immunity to be like. Oh cool it's a new opportunity. Nobody would judge me and that's exactly what it was. I moved here when I was eighteen to be gay in public. The exception some people feel at home here and then there's the opportunity to be part of a diverse community. That's one of the things I was looking for when I moved here as a pilot or callers so you saw the Chinese culture the magic. I'm not no Honduran and all different cultures and just one single area. How Alto California always seem much more like home than Iowa for the Chinese food alone prayed? Just remember as a child being able to have Chinese food that tasted so different from anything you could get in the mid west. I actually was walking Lake Merritt one day on Saturday and they were having a women's March and it was like how a variety of women from all different backgrounds coming together and not just women it was also other gentlemen there will and so it was this powerful to see how passionate in deep people feel about equality Especially in current political climate. How certain groups and certain people get marginalized you WanNa to be somewhere where people are power for their passionate about that so it was a Gaza. Samis played back in the day when we were kids. She often said if I can take a pitcher out of Atlantic Ocean and that can sweeten that pitcher but I can't sweeten entire ocean all been like the lack in that community. Feel that I had the ability to impact the community. I can't do this macaroni level but I can do a small community so I in education. I really WANNA do. That was the first day when we brought our son to his elementary school and seeing the diversity and and the care of the teachers and the creativity of the teachers. That was a special moment when we asked about what specific moment made you love the bay area. A lot of the stories that we got were about moments that you felt pure joy this is cheesy but I love Dolores Park. I was just there this afternoon and it was beautiful and it was sunny and it was so warm its first side of the Munster candidate. Normally people will bring your dogs but you get all the cats and they're all just hanging out on the grass and looking very unsure about what's happening but enjoying it just like everybody else. The moment that I fell in love with the bay area was stepping into my first ecstatic. Dance the one in San Francisco is unique in that it's in an old Catholic church in the lower haight and all the pews have been doubt and it's now a skating rink which is beautiful but on Sundays. There's beautiful natural pouring in through the stained glass windows and at the front of the room as a DJ. And what I found was a room full of people expressing themselves in such beautiful ways. Staying here and loving. This place isn't always an easy choice. The Bay area has changed since last year. I came to know it. Anita Wong had to work through some tough stuff growing up here. I really just had to kind of a horrible horrible like highschool experience kind of had to deal with my best friend and she actually committed suicide when I was nineteen. I just didn't want to be here anymore. There's bad feelings about it but I you know I wanted to go to school and college somewhere else. Even my parents were here You know I'd have resisted really for a long time to come back but then now I'm thirty one so a lot older and I've moved it's different places across the country but I feel like I realized like my home and my heart is really in the bay area. I see how much the bay area has affected my family in terms of how many community members supporting my family and I felt like I couldn't take that away from them so I had to deal with the head of confront the bear again and I said. Okay you and I are GonNa work out our feelings. We're going to record to work out different problems and low and behold now I really I really love it I love being here and people are so much more you know really more me really like more genuine and so yeah well. My husband just passed away and so it's kind of bittersweet but in some way I feel he's still with me and still with my kids and so I'll always stay here because I feel close to him being here in the bay area even when you think about leaving imagining an easier life that you might lead somewhere. That's cheaper less complicated less crowded. Something brings you back. I moved to Sacramento but I do come back to the bay all the time because my friends are here. We'll come here just to like have coffee or lunch with them. Rethink about relocating. But it's nothing like Dorothy says. Police like home in San Francisco our home. I mean I never really wanted to leave. And it's it's kind of like it's my home. That's what I love about it. There were a lot of responses that we didn't have time to include in the episode today words from Bart Lovers Bridge Lovers Bicycle Lovers even traffic lovers.

I was exit row and that's what people want. Nobody wants to sit in the middle of zero.

So we're thinking about what could you play in. That's cute. Well turns out. Signore has some similar eating habits as myself yeah. He's like half yeah yeah like he eats click he. It's like he's. He's more human. He's more normal like he'll eat healthy but then like not healthy. You consider yourself human. I met normal not normally but yeah he eats healthy but then he'll like dabble in not healthy things. Some things like pickup sticks yeah which is as a what yeah yeah yeah something like that not to share everything that i'm doing for this man okay okay so she's planning something cute and she said head should i have some sweatpants at my house for him like if he eats too much like nothing worse than just like being in jeans when you're like sitting on the cat and i feel bad because whenever we're hanging out like i'm always in my cosies and he's like in jeans. You know that would that that would be so cute. I think okay so freak you out. No no no no you can meet like. I've never had that happened well. We found that we found like less abrasive racist way to do it which i think is. It's really good. You want to tell us what it yeah so i'm gonna order on amazon a pair for myself myself and then accidentally order a bigger pair and she's like oh my gosh why did amos on me. This is when i really just needed this size. Oh it would you. Would you like these. Would you wanna put these yeah so then.

It's like mom your autograph seniora butterfly across yeah yeah yeah yeah butterfly would be casino cool berry pants burn good way. Though don't you think i think it's a really good move. Thank you i if i was a single man in had been on a very chill date with someone thinking arousing. She'd given me sweat but i mean i think you could say like i got these for you. I don't think geico dislike go rogue. I mean maybe i'm the wrong here. I don't think you have to do the whole like accidentally got his. I think he just go. I had the i got these k- free and put them in the closet. That's our long lost her again because he's been over before and i have an opera them so it's been over before so there's there's a precedent set yeah. Hey you over before you didn't have here okay. I don't know i mean i don't wanna be responsible goes wrong. No you'll be responsible. I think you i think q. Accidentally they sit in bigger. He's still keeping it keeping a cool breezy. Your another guy lessons here. The last guy left these here. That's probably frowned upon to go that way. Yeah i think i think you to be honest. I think either you're brian. I think if anything he'll be like that's so nice and if you want to be more cool than you do it that way. It just depends on your vibe girl or cute girls. I i know and here's the thing though i'm not cool girls much as i tried to pretend like you should do the amazon thing and then later in the night. I have confess funding. That's actually a good geico and i feel like he has that sense of humor. Totally yeah okay. That's a good call great. Yeah glad that we got that sorted out yeah. Maybe you'll meet him this weekend. Don't get my hopes up like that can happen. Should we just plan on. Maybe running into each other at like you know a local restaurant fancy meeting you here we are. Don't you think it should be like a plan thing. It should be a planned thing okay. I'm down for that i would love to what are you doing this weekend. I don't have really any plans. It's labor. The thing with labor day is that i want to go to the beach or to a pool but all of my options are going to be so filled with people strangers and i don't get the thrill from that actually at all i get the opposite of a thrill a chill. Oh yes so where does that leave. You just like me and my home probably eh but i'd be down to like maybe i could. Maybe go to the beach like a beach day if we found some good open space do oh. I got that paul. Ryan gave me a birthday present. He got me like those chairs and like the whole setup. I should do that this weekend. <hes> so cute yeah. I'll look into that. Maybe i could in order some for myself. No there's like multiples. It's like it's like made for people like a partner perfect day. Eight-day wow all right well. Those love plans coming together like that. Should we all just wear sweatpants from amazon. Yeah okay to the beach yeah yeah. We have a fun episode because we have a mantle today and we ask you all to ask some questions that you need to know from some dudes. I haven't looked over them but they're always really good when we do. This perfect and it's always always stuff where i don't. I am happy to give my opinion but i don't feel equipped as i am not equipped with some things. A man may have like a penis yeah but that shouldn't it really you know i mean that makes a difference i think but also the way our brains work are very different front as we as we have discovered in other situations so i think it's fun to kind of open it up for girls to asking good advice from from the guy side. We're not no. I'm in and i'm just san's song. Song is yeah well. I just find it so funny because it's like we give all this advice but like we're just like i mean yeah i mean i mean i i don't i. I feel like i give wisdom. You think i guess what are these people who do those who can't do teach so like there's that we had a huge response from the headphones. You know people having your phone your oh. I don't think i i saw one message for you. That agreed with you and there was a couple idea to say. There were a few peppered in. I want to bring up something. I noticed before we got on the plane. We're waiting for the plane two board and there's a young lady cenex tiny and she had ear buds in and she had her like food on the chinese food and she's like oh yeah uh hi mom and she's like she did not want should not talk to him but i was like well. There's there's a data point right there. I mean it's there wasn't really much of an argument. It was more just it was hard for me to just watch tania's view get trampled like it did but it was kind of like a no-brainer that was like i've never seen response like that ever. I really truly hate. I don't hate admitting when you're right but like this one was just like it was pretty good pretty overwhelming like i got messages of people like it seemed a little bit infuriated that i even do that because it's like when i get on a plane and have my headphones in starts talking like i feel there's rage internally in on the outside and just like yeah that's cool. I get some of those. I did get some of those messages. I loathe people like you. It's like oh but then i got some from other people that said that they like lay. Seek out people like me so it's really just the coin toss but but if they're seeking someone out like you they're not wearing headphones. That's that's true but no i did get some. That's that they wear headphones because they are shy but it was very it was like two or three say two two or three three hundred and i said don't talk to me. Passionate response yeah was we actually have a really exciting guest. We we have grace vander all on the episode she is..

"Jin's popularity can be traced back to prohibition when the manufacturing and selling of alcohol became illegal in nineteen twenty people got creative have you ever heard of bathtub gin? Well, that was literally people making Jin in their bathtub. It was cheap and easy. And there was a lot of it. So when president Roosevelt repealed prohibition thirteen years later there was plenty of generosity and just waiting to be drunk. Thirty six against prohibition is happy news while the grain raises of the United States, and many others throughout the land rose about cheers in the end of prohibition with nothing, but a MARTINI. So that's a big deal right there. Prohibition. Really kind of gave the MARTINI the leg up. I mean, it is just like this granddaddy of cocktails and this granddaddy came from here the San Francisco Bay area. Well, it probably came from here in nineteen Eighty-three. The San Francisco court of historical review, a group with no actual legal authority. They held a mock trial over the origin of the MARTINI. And they determined that their city was the cocktails. Rightful birthplace. But not to be outdone a mock court in Martinez overturned that ruling shortly after. When I press Jennifer to MIR and Gabriel on where the MARTINI was invented. No one is willing to say anything definitively. But finally, Jennifer gives it to me straight. So do you think it's important that people know where the MARTINI came from God. No, no, no one no one needs to know any of this. I mean, if you're if you're enjoying yourself at my bar. That's really all I care about..
