In-N-Out Burger is taking a firm stand against San Francisco COVID-19 restrictions that require businesses to check the vaccination status of customers before serving them food — a stand that has forced the restaurant to temporarily close down in at least one of its locations.
As highlighted by The Daily Wire on Tuesday, a San Fransisco In-N-Out Burger location was shut down for not checking customers’ vaccine status. The restaurant has opened up outdoors, but its indoor dining is still closed for refusal to comply with the health order.
In the wake of the forced closure, In-N-Out Burger’s Chief Legal and Business Officer Arnie Wensinger slammed the order as discriminatory, underscoring that the company, headed by 39-year-old Lynsi Snyder, refuses to become “the vaccination police for any government.”
“Our store properly and clearly posted signage to communicate local vaccination requirements,” Wensinger explained in a statement sent to Fox News. “After closing our restaurant, local regulators informed us that our restaurant Associates must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every Customer, then act as enforcement personnel by barring entry for any Customers without the proper documentation.”
“‘We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” said Wensinger, adding that the San Francisco Department of Health’s requirements are “unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe.” (Read more from “In-N-Out Exec: We Refuse To Be ‘Vaccination Police for Any Government’” HERE)
