"today in the bay's" bob redell is live in front of a well-known napa hotel. bob, so far we know of at least five confirmed cases but we're still in the incubation period, right? >> reporter: correct. that's why the napa county health department is issuing a warning to anyone who dined at the la toque restaurant in napa between february 9th and february 25th. that's the time when two employees inside the restaurant had been infected with hepatitis a, which is a very contagious liver disease.
6:02 am
now is the time for anyone who contracted or starts to show symptoms like abdominal pain, nausea or jaundice. >> weigh wanted to be sure meem who might have been served food by one or the other of the individuals during the time they might have been shedding virus are aware there's a potential risk. it's a very low risk but we felt it was important for us to let people know >> this is the first time in five years the napa health department is having to deal with cases of hep s&p a. what is unusual there's no obvious link between all five. three are part of the same fakly and the other two worked at la toque. the executive chef says they are working closely with the health department to find the source of the inif ex. la toque has implemented additional training and supervising in light of the cases. looking on your tv screen the statement from the westin hotel which houses la toque "our

effect on sunday. now shift change is when these officers shift around. they rotate out of specialized units like homicide. the unit loses an officer, but then another officer takes his place, they rotate around. now that rotation stops on sunday. that morning, a sarergeant will leave the homicide unit and not be replaced. he simply goes out into patrol to answer 911 calls. the elite metro unit will take the biggest hit, that unit will lose several officers and one sergeant. they're the ones who respond to serious crimes in san jose and the department says this change will stay in place for a while. for now it urgency needs more officers to answer those emergency calls. >> we're trying to keep the levels on patrol at a level that we can maintain. again, we're using overtime cars and regular assigned patrol officers, but we need to have a
6:07 am
minimum level and it's becoming increasingly difficult, so we're going to not backfill some of those positions in our special operations, our bureau of investigation and bureau of administration. >> reporter: there's more. the gang suppression unilit lose an officer. the recruitment and training unit will lose four officers, and one sergeant, and the department is working to implement a mandatory overtime plan. too many officers leaving the force and not enough new ones coming in to fill that void. again, this takes effect on sunday morning, beginning of shift change. we're live in san jose, i'm damian trujillo, "today in the bay." >> we'll see if the strategy works. thank you very much. >> the man accused of firing the bullet that killed an oakland mother right in front of her kids will be in court this morning. police arrested 19-year-old anthony sims yesterday and charged him with the murder of chamille pierce. monday afternoon a fight started near pierce's home in west

"vice" magazine reports the faa started to send out warning letters to people who post on
6:16 am
youtube. they may be in violation of the rules. not because of the drones or the video, but because of the youtube ads.

6:19 am
want to talk about just how unusual it is to get this warm this early in the season. i've got to tell you, we're about a week away from springtime now. 81 degrees in san jose, 84, oh my goodness, that is the forecasted high, the record is 81 so we'll blow way past that record as we get into your saturday and i think we'll see records fall across the bay area. i'm forecasting a new record in san rafael, oakland and livermore as well. keep that in mind and 24e7b everything changes, a little weather quhiplash into your sunday. stop that clock at 6:00 a.m., straight up, you can see here's some showers pushing just past the sonoma county line that will continue to be the case until about 11:00 a.m. and the moisture spreads to the south as we head throughout the second half of the day. south bay showers between about 3:00 and k, that's what i'm expecting, not much, like i said, you probably don't need the umbrella if you can move quickly and get into your vehicle. not great for outdoor plans if you want the sunshine. saturday is your day for that. then on sunday, hey, maybe you
6:20 am

6:32 am
saying this was just a matter of time before tensioning reached this point. >> reporter: that's right t has been very tense obviously since last august when michael brown was killed with almost nightly protests, but this morning the good news is that the streets calm. people are headed to work and school. there was a protest last night cut short because of the rain and police say that they have interviewed some people and that they have gathered some evidence but at this point no arrests of the person who shot those two police officers. as they've done many times in the past, people took to the streets of ferguson last night, one group held a prayer vigil praying for the two police officers shot outside the ferguson police department early yesterday morning at the tail end of a protest, and also praying for unity in this area. they said that things have just been too divisive of late and they were praying for calm.
6:33 am
after that, there was another protest here outside the ferguson police department, smaller than the one the night before, a few dozen people gathered here. there was some anger, but it wak much more peaceful than the night before when shots rang out. no violence in the protests that happened last night. as you can see, rain moved in overnight and that did in large part scatter of the crowd. the protests over the last couple of days have come after the resignation of ferguson's police chief, the sixth person to resign here, of course the department of justice came out with a report earlier this week saying that there was a history of racial bias in government institutions here. last night's protests largely peaceful and authorities here say that there is $13,000 in reward money for anyone who can lead them to the person who shot the two plirz.
6:34 am
i'm chris pallone. kris, back to you. >> how strong was the community activists trying to separate themselves from that act of violence? >> reporter: they're trying to distance themselves. they feel like a lot of the protesters, some of their goals are starting to be met with city leaders resigning and leaving office and they feel that the violence that broke out early yesterday morning taints that and stops any progress that they've made and at this point they don't want to be painted with the broad brush. we don't know if that was a protester, in one of the neighborhoods around here. they don't know who it was so to be painted in with that group they say stems their momentum. >> so everybody looking for that shooter to be captured. the "today" show continues our coverage of this developing story coming up at 7:00 this morning. for updates any time you can go to our website nbcbayarea.com. it is raining in some parts

of the country clearly, and things looking great to start out this morning, a live look from the san bruno mountaintop. >> a touch of pink brightening up the sky. meteorologist christina loren brightening up your screen this morning with her lovely smile. >> thank you. sam, you talk about the rain we had earlier. funny we get excited about 0.3 of an inch of rainfall when much of the nation has been dealing with one of the most brutal winters on record. now that we're getting into spring, i always look to look at the climatological data and it looks like we're going to see an active next couple of months so that's fantastic news, ups and downs, big time swings in the forecast for the next few days. temperatures will swing up for today, tomorrow in the mid-60s to low 70s by lunch time, rounding out the day close to 80 degrees, just about everywhere. tomorrow even warmer conditions, record warmth for the sequential pi day this saturday.
6:36 am

6:37 am
this is 92 itself, getting over on the peninsula, no problems on the left, and over on the east bay we still have mild slowing for southbound 880 coming down out of hayward and in toward union city toward the dumbarton bridge. 680 not a problem, slowing through sunol out of pleasanton. this is a lighter friday commute. typical slowing approaching the bay bridge and also the north bay very light volume comparatively toward the rest of the week. the bay bridge toll plaza a live look, shows you the toll plaza itself is full but the fast track lanes are moving and bottom of the screen if you carpool that's a big advantage. the south bay not a lot happening on the peninsula, a smooth, easy drive, 101 at 680 at this time of day monday through thursday traffic is slamming down. this is friday so it won't slam down until later. we'll still have a slow drive >> thanks, mike. >> 6:37 right now. the markets picked back up yesterday, can they continue the streak later today? >> let's check the numbers with
