Good morning San Francisco. Here's your roundup of local stories for May 10.

Mike Tyson not charged in altercation on plane at SFO

After a highly publicized altercation between Mike Tyson and another passenger on a plane at San Francisco International Airport last month, the former professional boxer will not face any charges, NBC Bay Area reports.

Tyson was seen on video footage taken on April 20 punching another passenger on a plane that was awaiting departure at SFO. San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe on Tuesday said that decision to not charge Tyson is based on "the conduct of the victim leading up to the incident, the interaction between Mr. Tyson and the victim, as well as the requests of both the victim and Mr. Tyson that no charges be filed in this case."

COVID-19 outbreaks across Marin schools

North of San Francisco, about 20 Marin schools are experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks due to the BA.2 subvariant of the virus, the Marin Independent Journal reports.

In Marin County, an outbreak is defined as three or more cases among students or staff. At this time, the county is not issuing any local mask mandates for schools at this time.

“We are seeing increased virus activity countywide,” said Dr. Matt Willis, Marin's public health officer. “The current surge in cases is related to our behavior, and the behavior of the virus.”
