The owner of a Restaurant in California claims that his eatery will now require evidence of “being vaccinated” before allowing the customers to enter.Basilico’s Pasta-e-Vino, in Huntington Beach, had posted the notices near its entrance advising the customers of its new policy released during this week.
The statements, which have been shared to the Restaurant social media pages, also seem to suggest that vaccinations are both “anti-American” and “stupid.”The notice mentions – “Proof of being vaccinated required,” which also features a graphic showing a pair of hands breaking apart from a syringe.
They made it very clear that they have zero tolerance for disloyalty towards the nation and anti-American stupidity.In a video posted on Facebook on Tuesday morning, Basilico’s owner, Tony Roman, suggested that the new policy comes along as a direct response to the new mask mandates in the cities all across the country among the emergence of the highly contagious delta variant of Covid-19.
For example, Los Angeles had restored its mask mandates for both vaccinated and non-vaccinated residents at indoor public gatherings earlier this month.However, Roman failed to clarify how staff members at Basilico’s expect the customers to prove their vaccinated statuses. According to the outlet, a staff member spoke with the Los Angeles Times and said that the Restaurant would not be asking for any official documents as they are meant to be confidential.Over the last year, Basilico’s has also made the headlines for similar stunts, including its disobedience of California’s state-wide mask mandates in September 2020.
