Apparently, enough is enough.
The fast food chain, In-N-Out burger has informed employees of a new mask guideline.
Unless they have a doctor’s note they will no longer be allowed to wear a medical mask while at work.
“We are introducing new mask guidelines that emphasize the importance of customer service and the ability to show our Associates’ smiles and other facial features while considering the health and well-being of all individuals,” the memo reads.
Adding that employees who have a “specific medical condition or health concern that requires them to wear a mask” will have to provide a “valid medical note” to their store supervisor, though they will not be required to disclose their medical diagnosis or other “confidential medical information.

The new rules will go into effect for workers in Texas, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, and Utah. Due to state laws workers in California and Oregon can keep their masks on.
“Experts” are fuming stating that the chain’s new policy goes against guidelines.
“Expert” Judy Stone writing for Forbes magazine criticized the burger joint for “pushing the urgency of normalizing behavior.”

The fast chain has made the news before when it refused to comply with Contra Coast County’s customer vaccine check.
“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,” Arnie Wensinger, the chain’s chief legal and business officer, said in a statement at the time. “We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government.”
