In-N-Out Burger Bans Employees from Wearing Masks without a Doctor’s Note

One of the stupidest and most insane things that happened during the COVID-19 scam-demic was the medical community convincing people to wear masks. “Put on your little obedience face-thong, peasants!”

There has never been a single scientific study proving that masks prevent anyone from catching or spreading COVID. In-N-Out Burger, which held an epic feud with the State of California during the lockdowns, has now come up with a brand-new policy to annoy the COVID kooks. Employees are banned from wearing masks unless they present a note from their doctor saying they need it.

What a great way to weed Democrats out of your workforce! The only people who are still wearing masks at this point are woke, progressive liberals who worship Tony Fauci. By adopting a company policy that prohibits masks, it will keep some of those people from seeking employment. Social justice warriors are such a headache, to begin with that it’s better never to hire them in the first place. Brilliant!

Why there is still any debate about masks is a mystery. They were always telling us to “Follow the science” during the scam-demic. Well, “the science” has caught up with the stupidity of thinking that masks work to protect against respiratory viruses of any kind.

The Cochrane Review on Masks was a rigorous scientific study that proved there is no benefit to masking. Page 22 of the study states:

“Wearing a medical/surgical mask probably makes little or no difference compared to not wearing a mask.”

Page 23 of the study states:

“The use of a N95/P2 respirator compared to a medical/surgical mask probably makes little or no difference for this more precise and objective outcome.”

Translation: Masks absolutely do not work to protect against COVID-19, the flu, or any other respiratory virus, so you may as well go bare-faced like a normal, mentally healthy person.

Under the new employee guidelines that In-N-Out Burger issued, it states:

“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. We believe this policy will also help to promote clear and effective communication both with our Customers and among our Associates.”

There’s nothing more annoying than having to try to communicate with a customer service employee who has a mask on and sounds like they have a mouth full of bananas. It irritates everyone—the customers and the employees.

If a neurotic employee shows up with a note from their doctor, they are required to wear one of the stuffy and uncomfortable N95 masks that In-N-Out Burger will provide them. They don’t get to wear their own cutesy mask with the little design on it. They have to be as uncomfortable as possible.

In-N-Out waged a heroic battle against the masks and lockdown craziness in California while the scam-demic was going on. The company refused to enforce the city of San Francisco’s illegal and unconstitutional vaccine passport regime. They just served customers like everything was normal. The In-N-Out in Pleasant Hill, CA, did the same thing. Both of those In-N-Out venues were shut down by state and local health authorities.

Kudos to In-N-Out Burger for this genius method of legally excluding social justice warriors from their workforce. Other companies should emulate this because they’re just asking for it the longer that they keep an SJW on the payroll. Sooner or later, one of them will come up with the bright idea to put Dylan Mulvaney on the company’s main product, and you’ll go broke before you know it. Well played, In-N-Out. Well played.
