SF Temporarily Shuts Down In-N-Out After Company Comes Out Against Vaccine Mandates

Did you know that In-N-Out is owned by evangelical Christians? Now, the unfortunate crossover between religion and the anti-vaccine stance has roosted in the only San Francisco location of the beloved burger chain. It turns out that they are in a quiet battle with the SF Public Health Service. There is a vaccination obligation for indoor meals.

Fisherman’s Wharf (333 Jefferson Street) In-N-Out was closed by the Health Department on October 14. As KRON4 reports.. The site has since been reopened without meals indoors, but of course the company is serious about its vaccination obligations.

“We refuse to be vaccination police in any government,” Arnie Wensinger, In-N-Out’s Chief Legal and Business Officer, said in a statement. “We strongly oppose government orders that force private companies to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business.”

In-N-Out states that it has properly posted local health orders regarding mask and vaccine requirements, but company policy refuses to act as an enforcer. However, it seems that a compromise has been reached and only counter service takeaways are allowed, so there is no need to keep the location closed.

Beginning in early August, San Francisco began asking bars and restaurants to check vaccination evidence for patrons trying to drink and eat indoors. No vaccine is required for outdoor dining.

Even in Los Angeles, where there are more In-N-Out locations, indoor meals require vaccination proof, The rule will not take effect until November 1st.. Expect a lot of this brouhaha when In-N-Outs throughout LA have to start enforcing that rule.

The apparent religion of In-N-Out dates back to at least the early 1990s. This is explained by the company owner, Lynci Snyder: Unusual interview Two years ago. It began with a deceased uncle putting a passage of the Bible in a soda cup, as in “John 3:16,” and when Cinder “found Jesus” herself, she put them in a container of fried food. Also added to. In-N-Out founder Harry and Esther Snyder’s only grandson, Snyder, took full control of the business after his grandmother died four years ago.

Other than that, San Francisco has seen little corporate backlash over the past two months about mandatory vaccines. But again, there is no place for Chick-fil-A here.
