Contra Costa County Closes In-N-Out Due To Demonstrable Refusal To Follow Vaccination Rules

Contra Costa County health officials indefinitely closed an In-N-Out restaurant in Pleasant Hill on Tuesday for violating COVID-19 vaccination regulations for indoor dinners.

The action takes place a week after the county fined a popular burger fast food restaurant $ 750 for double violations of rules that require restaurants to ask customers aged 12 and over for a COVID-19 vaccination card or proof of past history. tested negative for coronavirus. 72 hours, the Contra Costa Health Services email says. The district issued a warning for the first time after receiving numerous complaints from residents.

In-N-Out Corporation persists in refusing to abide by Contra Costa and San Francisco County rules. The chain’s San Francisco restaurant was closed for indoor dining last week after company officials refused to check vaccination cards, local officials said.

“We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” Arnie Wensinger, In-N-Out’s chief legal and commercial director, told the news organization. “It is unwise, aggressive and unsafe to force our restaurant partners to divide customers into who can be served and who cannot, based on their documentation or any other reason.”

Public health officials, acting on complaints, have tried unsuccessfully to force the fast food restaurant to comply with the requirements since late September, according to Eater SF. They completely closed the San Francisco restaurant on October 14 and then allowed takeout and open-air catering to resume.

The San Francisco Restaurant Ordinance was preceded by 300 members of the San Francisco Bar Owners Alliance, who in late July decided to demand proof of vaccination or COVID absence from visitors on the premises.

While the group stated at the time that the decision was “based solely on our need to protect our workers, clients and their families,” participants went on to say that they hope the mandate can influence people who have not been vaccinated to do so. “We understand that the only way to get our society (and our business) back to normal is to increase the vaccination rates for our residents, not only in San Francisco, but throughout the United States of America.”

Elsewhere In-N-Out in Contra Costa County, violations of their own began. Pinole and San Ramon restaurants have received warnings in recent weeks and were fined $ 250 on Monday, the county health department said.

“Most businesses do indeed comply with pandemic safety requirements,” the health department said in a statement, adding that restaurants can appeal the suspension of their permits but should otherwise remain closed until they comply with the health order.

In-N-Out, a family-owned chain, has built a very loyal customer base since its founding in 1948 and expanded to six other states.
