Another In-N-Out restaurant in California was forced to close after refusing to enforce Covid-19 vaccination rules.

Officials also issued warnings and fines to In-N-Out restaurants in Pinole and San Ramon.

However, In-N-Out, based in Irvine, in southern California, has consistently refused to heed the requirements in the Bay Area, which are some of the strictest in the state.

The restaurant reopened last week but is supposed to only offer takeout and outdoor dining.

The city’s health department told the outlet it would “take next steps to address any observed violations”.

In-N-Out’s refusal to enforce vaccination rules has prompted an outpouring of support from conservative politicians, including Mike Pence.

The beloved chain is owned by conservative Christians, and several executives have made donations to the Republican party and Donald Trump. »

The International Order Isn’t Ready for the Climate Crisis

Authored by

A shift to planetary politics will require a new, shared understanding of the duties of sovereign states, serious commitments to sustainable development and investment, and innovative international institutions.

As we plunder the planet, we risk rendering it uninhabitable—a crisis that cries out for global solidarity and collective action.

Planetary politics cannot succeed without multilateral institutions and global governance that can foster the unprecedented international cooperation demanded by the intertwined climate and biodiversity crises. »
