It doesn’t apply to California because the state has a law that doesn’t allow employers to ban masks.
Activist Dr. Lucky Tran revealed a source told him that In-N-Out Burger has banned employees from wearing masks without a doctor’s note.
“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,” states the document that Tran posted. “We believe this policy will also help to promote clear and effective communication both with our Customers and among our Associates.”

If an employee has a medical note, then they must wear the N-95 mask provided by the company.
If the employee wants to wear another type of mask, the doctor needs to point that out in the note.
The policy only applies to stores in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Texas, and Utah.
California has a law that doesn’t allow employers to ban masks.
Here’s a different note that was sent to In-N-Out workers in CA & OR.
No medical note needed (due to laws in CA & OR) but added explanation that those who wear masks must wear company N95s because they “provide the highest level of protection for COVID-19 and other viruses.” https://t.co/x7RF4OvNLL pic.twitter.com/8oWc4TdKb5

Tran insists the move is discriminatory.
But if anyone paid attention in 2020, In-N-Out made waves because it fought against California’s COVID vaccine mandate.
San Francisco shut down the only In-NB-Out in the city when it refused to check for vaccine passports. The Contra Costa County Health Services shut down the In-N-Out in Pleasant Hill for doing the same thing.DONATE
