California has become one of the major coronavirus hotspots in America.
One of the major reasons for this outbreak is people not following safety norms such as wearing masks or maintaining social distancing.
A taco restaurant in Los Angeles has been closed down over the issue. The restaurant has closed both of its locations.
The major reason for the closure is that most of the customers refused to wear masks and when the employees asked them to do so, they harassed the employees.
In such a situation, the employees were very insecure about their safety. To, the restaurant said that the safety of its employees was first to it. So, they closed the restaurant.
A statement from the resultant reads as “Our taco stands are exhausted by the constant conflicts,” “Staff has been harassed, called names, and had objects and liquids thrown at them.
A mask isn’t symbolic of anything other than our desire to keep our staff healthy.”
There have been similar instances previously. A restaurant that was closed in San Francisco over the same issue reopened again on June 5 to restart the takeout services.
However, it is unclear when this restaurant will reopen. It has asked the customers to check the website for any update.
A GoFundMe campaign was raised to help the employees of the restaurant with a goal of $10,000. Soon, it reached the goal and now the new goal is $50,000.
The proceeds will be distributed between the employees of both the branches of the restaurant. For more such latest news stay tuned with us.
