“We refuse to become the vaccination police”
Beloved California burger chain In-N-Out is fighting back against San Francisco’s vaccine mandate. The company blew up the city after the Department of Public Health temporarily closed its Fisherman’s Wharf location on October 14 for failing to check customers’ vaccination cards. It is the only restaurant in San Francisco that has been closed for violating the indoor vaccination mandate, the health department said.
Despite multiple warnings, In-N-Out employees have continued to let customers enter the restaurant without checking their immunization status since at least the end of September. (The in-city vaccination mandate for businesses, including restaurants, went into effect on August 20.) In-N-Out admitted the violation of the app, calling the vaccination requirement inside San Francisco of “intrusive, inappropriate and offensive”.
