Two of the Golden State’s most beloved institutions — In-N-Out Burger and leftist government overreach — are finding themselves at loggerheads.
For the second time this month, local health authorities have shut down a branch of the beloved, West Coast-based burger joint. Not because of rats in the kitchen or unsanitary conditions, mind you.
On Tuesday, according to KPIX-TV, the In-N-Out in Pleasant Hill, California, was shut down by Contra Costa County officials who found the restaurant’s employees weren’t checking vaccination cards, as required by the county’s vaccine passport mandate.
A statement from Contra Costa Environmental Health said the commercial food permit for the location had been suspended “for creating a public health hazard by repeatedly violating a county health order intended to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”
“Despite repeated notices of violation and fine, this business continued to permit indoor dining on site without verifying the COVID-19 vaccination status or recent, negative test result of customers,” the statement read.
