The San Francisco bay area is known as being a bastion of progressive activism.
The days of everybody living free and not “judging” anyone are long gone.
The leftist “Woke” culture has zeroed in on those they disagree with including a Christian-owned, California favorite, hamburger chain.
In-N-Out Burger has a reputation for quality food, great employees, and clean restaurants.
Regardless of their reputation and popularity, they must all go and new ones must be prevented from opening, according to LGBT activists.
Unable to slow their growth progressives have once again targeted the chain, this time for refusing to check customers’ vaccination status before serving them food.
Remaining consistent with the company’s stance to reject “discrimination” against their patrons, another California In-N-Out Burger was closed down
“The Pleasant Hill In-N-Out location received four citations in recent weeks and fines totaling $1,750, all for the same health order violation, before today’s action,” Contra Costa Environmental Health said in a statement, according to The Hill.
“They suspended the permit because the business was not in compliance with all applicable state and local health and safety regulations, and so posed an immediate health hazard to the public,”
The restaurant reopened Wednesday for drive-thru and takeout service only, and the other Contra Costa County In-N-Out locations also halted indoor dining service after the Pleasant Hill closure.
It is the second Bay Area In-N-Out restaurant to be closed for COVID-19 health violations. On Oct. 14, San Francisco health officials shut down the In-N-Out Burger at Fisherman’s Wharf for violating the city’s health order.
In-N-Out restaurants in Pinole and San Ramon also received notices for the same violations of the COVID-19 health order. On Monday, the San Ramon location was slapped with a $250 fine, Contra Costa County officials said.
“In-N-Out may appeal the Pleasant Hill permit suspension and any fines, but the restaurant must remain closed until the hazard is abated.”
Full statement from In-N-Out:
“On Tuesday, October 26, our restaurant at 570 Contra Costa Blvd. in Pleasant Hill, California, was closed by the Contra Costa Health Services Environmental Division. The reason for the closure is that In-N-Out Associates were not actively intervening by demanding COVID-19 vaccine or testing documentation and photo identification from each dine-in Customer before serving them. Rather than acting as enforcement agents, our Associates were allowing our Customers to be responsible for their own compliance with the divisive local regulations.
“As a Company, In-N-Out Burger strongly believes in the highest form of customer service and to us that means serving all Customers who visit us and making all Customers feel welcome. 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, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason.
“We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business. This is clear governmental overreach and is intrusive, improper, and offensive.”
