Only In-N-Out in S.F. refused to check COVID-19 vaccine status. City closed it down

San Francisco officials shut down its only In-N-Out Burger, located at Fisherman's Wharf, on Oct. 14 after the fast-food establishment refused to check customers' COVID-19 vaccination status, per a local mandate.

"Our store properly and clearly posted signage to communicate local vaccination requirements," In-N-Out Burger’s Chief Legal and Business Officer, Arnie Wensinger, told Fox News. "We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government."

The drive-thru has since reopened, but indoor dining remains closed.
