was afraid he would lose his job if he spoke up. >> they should shut down their company, test everybody. he had no symptoms. he was out in the public. was always told he would be fine, just to continue wearing a mask and do the proper precautions. >> the county stood up testing in collaboration with the company and over the course of a day tested everyone there and identified 38 more people who were positive from the company. >> reporter: company officials did release a statement saying they are committed to providing a work safe environment and they have all been tested. the majority are asymptomatic and those who tested negative will be retested asuding, again employees who already tested negative. they will be tested again.
employees are getting their temperature checked as they walk into the building. and all common areas where it's hard to socially distance, they're closed so no locker rooms, no cafeteria. kris sanchez, "today in the bay." thank you, kris. just a few minutes ago governor newsom answering some tough questions. a lot of it is your rounding his recent push into phase three of reopening. "today in the bay's" bob redell is live for us this morning. bob, the governor talked about ba barber shops and salons reopening. >> reporter: i have to say he sounded very encouraging about the economic recovery our state will be entering hopefully at some point soon. some parts of the state entered that phase three reopening of our economy. barber shops, hair salons. not all counties are participating yet in the bay
area. they are allowing businesses to reopen based on guidance from their county health departments. nail salons are not yet included. governor newsom expects child care and summer camps to open soon with deep modifications. those were his words and are a necessity to go back to work. the state economy has been battered by the shutdown. governor newsom thinks it's possible to see a v-shaped recovery, one we come back as quickly as we went down. >> i see it happening if public health is our primary focus. i don't see it happening if we look at it as an annoyance or nuisance that gets in the way of our economic growth. as demand increases, we'll see this economy begin to rev back up. that won't increase until people feel confident and safe.
>> reporter: coming up at 6:00 the governor responds to president trump's claims that mail-in ballots lead to widespread voter fraud. you can watch the full interview with the governor at 7:00 on the "today" show. thank you very much, bob. salons and barber shops will be able to reopen but only three bay area counties have the green light to move forward. napa, solano and sonoma counties. you see them there. they have to follow new guidelines which include screening everyone for symptoms, make everyone wear masks, provide gloves and eye protection like goggles and glasses for stylists as well. now haircuts, coloring, blow-outs and hair extensions are allowed. the things like shaves, waxes, threading, eyelash extensions and manicures are not.
today the first indoor mall in the bay area will reopen to shoppers. shoppers will see some changes when they head out. not just people but cars must social distance. individual stores may insist you wear one. 5:37 this morning. a developing story. this one we want to warn you about ahead of time. some of the images you may find disturbing. this is over the death of a man in minnesota. all of this concerned bystanders watching as it happened. i can't breathe! >> that is a protest happening in minneapolis. a bystander captured this video
of the incident. it appears to show a police officer kneeling on employed's neck as he begs for help saying i can't breathe. four officers have been fired. attorneys say this is not enough. >> the family believes, as many of us, that the firings was the first step to justice but they want them charged to the full extent of the law. >> the fbi is now on the case and they're going to keep an eye on what's going on. we will as well and bring you those developments as they happen. 5:38 right now. a live look outside at sfo and downtown san jose. the sun is coming up. as kari was just telling us, expect another hot day ahead and with the shelter at home order there are fewer places to actually escape the heat. not everyone has the luxury of air conditioning. "today in the bay's" jackie ward
joins us live from san francisco this morning. welcome, jackie. now this could be some potential danger for people if they're out in the heat and they don't have shelter. >> reporter: yeah, thank you so much. air conditioning in san francisco pretty much doesn't exist, so these reminders are for parents who may have curious or adventurous kids especially now that we might have our windows open more than usual. this morning health experts are reminding us that screens are not designed to prevent falls. many recommend buying window guards. you can also make sure furniture is pulled away from window ledges. the pediatric chief resident told us what hospitals are preparing for now after seeing what happened last year during a 48-hour period at zuckerberg general hospital when the weather got hot. >> we saw four kids who had fallen out of a second story window or higher and some did need intensive care unit care because of their injuries.
and so we're kind of anticipating that might happen again now that the weather is getting warmer. >> reporter: a lot of us like running to the beach. to discourage crowds because of covid-19 most beach parking lots are still closed. beach closures are extended until july 1st. for now here at ocean beach it does remain open and we have a whole list of community centers that are also opening as cooling centers today. there is a word of advice because of limited capacity due to covid-19. health restrictions, health experts are advising you to get there as early as you can. jackie ward, "today in the bay." >> thank you, jackie. we take a look at where we're expecting our temperatures that will continue to warm up. we're already starting out with warm weather in concord at 68 degrees. we're usually at about 55 degrees at this time in the day.
and we're going to heat up pretty fast. if you plan on going for a jog this morning, you have a couple of hours in brentwood before it gets really hot and, in fact, dangerous to go out for a run during the middle of the day. we will talk more about a weekend cooldown in our forecast and, mike, you're looking at the commute. how is it looking for the south bay? we're back to normal but we're watching cupertino for 280. the map shows the rest of the bay smooth. i'll talk about why we have metering lights on at the bay bridge coming up in the next report. light traffic right now. of's weekly
inaccurately claim tv host joe scarborough was involved in the accidental death of a congressional aide 19 years ago. we're going to talk more about that apology from twitter coming up at 6:15 when we talk business. twitter also reacting to false claims the president is making about the upcoming election and mail-in ballots. remember, the president himself uses a mail-in ballot.
so take a look at what twitter has done. it's added the blue line, get the facts. that takes you to a compilation of stories from cnn, "the washington post,". the president says california is sending a ballot to everyone in california. that is not the case. it is sending a ballot to every registered voter in california and five other states do exactly the same thing. he says mail-in ballots are fraudulent, but there's no proof they're any more fraudulent than in-person voting. in fact, back in 2016 president trump said there were millions of fraudulent in-person votes and, remember, he won that election. he even set up a blue ribbon panel to find those millions of in-person fraudulent votes and the panel did not. the president claims twitter is interfering with the 2020 presidential election and that it's stifling his free speech
which he says as president he will not allow to happen. as the leader of the united states he knows there is no free speech right on twitter. the first amendment to the constitution protects you from the government stepping on your free speech. it says nothing about private companies. nonetheless, he is calling for regulation of silicon valley companies over this issue. the white house new press secretary was asked about the president's criticism of joe biden wearing a facemask. the president said he thought it was strange biden doesn't wear a mask inside his house with his wife but does wear it in public. a reporter asked, well hold on, isn't that exactly what you're supposed to do? >> it is a bit peculiar, though, that in a basement right next to his wife he's not wearing a mask but he's wearing one outdoors when he's socially distanced. i think there was a discrepancy there. he's not shaming anyone. he wore the mask in private at the ford facility and is open to it if the circumstance mandates it. >> isn't the guidance to wear a
