16 businesses, including 10 restaurants, cited for violating city’s proof of vaccination order
Between Jan. 3, the day the order took effect, and Wednesday, the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection issued a total of 32 citations to the businesses. The city has cited 16 businesses, 10 of them restaurants, for...
Lmao that McDonald’s at 10 E. Chicago is the thunderdome, vaccines are the least of their worries.
McDonald’s, 10 E. Chicago Ave.
Anyone who knows that McDonalds knows that location already has enough trouble keeping the peace I don’t blame em. Search McDonald Chicago ave on YouTube/Twitter and you’ll see what I mean
Completely unfunded, no training, no uniformity, no evidence that restaurants are any more a significant source of spread than being in any sized room. This mandate is a fucking joke and only exists to hurt small businesses
I recall reading a handful of comments about how the City wouldn't enforce this order on the South and West sides. Yet, here are a lot of addresses on the South and West sides.
Honestly fuck the government for refusing to have the balls to implement a vaccine mandate that they have to enforce and instead forcing small businesses to do it for them. And then on top of that, publicly shaming the establishments that don’t adhere. Add a fucking vaccine mandate to ride public transport or attend public schools and put the onus on the city to enforce the mandates they think are necessary
This is just depressing. Fuck Mayor Lightfoot and the city of Chicago for doing this.
Every time we have a COVID article, all the shitters who aren't from Chicago flock to these threads. Jesus do they have a bot crawling this sub for keywords.
"While each violation can potentially trigger a fine between $100 and $10,000, some businesses could also face closure, according to the municipal code and the order."
I wonder what the actual amounts cited were.
Planet Fitness might as well be classified as a restaurant, or did they stop free donut mondays and pizza wednesdays?
It’s not just Chicago it’s all of Cook County I’m a manager at a restaurant in the suburbs near Indiana and I can tell you our business has went down 40% since last Monday… my poor waitresses won’t be able to pay their bills I’ve had a couple leave already for restaurants in Indiana and I’m sure more are to follow… so when you get some restaurants that don’t follow rules it’s bullshit and makes it even harder for the people abiding by the rules😒
Nothing like a potential $10,000 fine during the slowest month of the year. Idiots.
What a fucking joke. Continues to say follow the science like those of us that are vaccinated aren’t getting Covid. Lightfoot is a fucking joke.
Let them make their way to Edison Park. It'll be another easy 10
