In-N-Out Burger in California apparently isn’t requiring proof of vaccination, fines be darned.
According to an “investigative report” from CBSLA Ch. 2/KCAL 9 in Los Angeles, In-N-Out didn’t request proof of vaccination for indoor eating, as required by California legislation. It stands to obtain fines of as much as $5,000 if anybody with an even bigger say in issues than CBSLA finds out.
Not that In-N-Out burger essentially cares. It can afford to interrupt the foundations as certainly one of world’s most famous burger chains.
Anyway, again to the report.
CBS political reporter Tom Wait visited a number of In-N-Out institutions on Tuesday “and found that it was business as usual, despite the fact that burger chain could face fines,” the station’s web site reported.
Why a political reporter is doing an expose on a quick meals chain, we will by no means know. But Wait, there’s extra.
“At no point, during any of the visits to five different locations, was Wait ever asked to show proof of vaccination, not while entering the restaurants, while ordering or even while sitting a table indoors,” CBSLA wrote.
Of course, Wait wasn’t actually uncovering something new. In-N-Out launched a press release two months in the past saying it might not honor the mandate and that anybody — vaccinated or in any other case — could be free to eat inside at any time when they wished.
“In-N-Out Burger strongly believes in serving all customers who visit us and making all customers feel welcome. We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” the assertion learn.
CBSLA reported that In-N-Out didn’t reply to a request for remark. Perhaps as a result of it has already made its stance clear. It’s not the restaurant’s fault that some TV station that in all probability virtually folds each 4 months is simply now discovering out about it.”
“You have the right to eat here or not,” CBSLA quoted a presumably glad buyer as saying. “It’s their business, not ours. It’s up to them.”
