San Francisco temporarily closed its only In-N-Out

The San Francisco Department of Public Health closed In-N-Out on Oct. 14 because employees were not properly checking for customers’ vaccination documentation, the burger chain said in a statement.

In-N-Out said it properly posted signs of local vaccination requirements but refuses to strictly enforce them.

“We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” In-N-Out Chief Legal & Business Officer Arnie Wensinger said. “We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business.”


Well, that’s unfortunate although putting that much burden for In-N-Out to do policing isn’t particularly reasonable either.

I’m surprised someone reported In-N-Out. Almost every taco place in Mission District don’t check either. The reality is this is too much a bother and restaurants didn’t have enough staff to just check vaccination cards.

I do bring mine along at all times, I’ll say I only get checked a quarter of the time.

Stay strong In-N-Out. You’ll be missed for the time being.
