Another Bay Area In-N-Out Location Is Shut Down For Covid Violations

For the second time in two weeks, one of the Bay Area's In-N-Out Burger restaurants has been shut down for violating coronavirus health orders.

Yesterday, Contra Costa County health officials ordered the In-N-Out in Pleasant Hill to stop serving customers. It ignored orders that require customers dining inside to show proof of vaccination, or a negative test taken within 72-hours. It's been cited four times, and fined in recent weeks. The county also suspended the restaurant's commercial food permit yesterday. Last week, San Francisco closed indoor dining at the In-N-Out at Fisherman's Wharf, because it was also violating vaccination protocols for customers. 

"We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not," In-N-Out said in a statement. Public health authorities see vaccination enforcement requirements as vital tools in slowing COVID-19 at a time when 1,500 or more Americans are dying each day from the virus.
