Dozens of restaurants and bars in Seattle will require proof of vaccination for customers to enter.

There were at least 60 bars on Friday in the city that would not allow a person to enter without proof they are fully vaccinated, The Seattle Times reported.

The move comes after many bars had to shut down last week due to employees contracting the coronavirus. 

Linda Derschang, owner of Linda’s Tavern and Oddfellows Cafe + Bar, told The Seattle Times her restaurants could not afford to shut down again and she wanted to keep her employees safe.

Proof of vaccination for restaurants is not mandated by the state; establishments are setting these rules for themselves. 

“No shirt, no shoes, no vaccine, no entry,” Derschang said.

Some establishments are having unvaccinated customers eat outside, while others are having those under the age of 16 wear masks whenever they leave their seats if they are unvaccinated, according to the local outlet.

    Good. Far more restaurants and other businesses should require vaccination. Perhaps when the anti-vaxers can’t go to their favorite, bar, restaurant, movie theater, store or other businesses, they will realize it’s in their best interests to get the jab.
