The fast-casual restaurant chain “Shake Shack” was trending a little while ago on Twitter after the company’s founder, Danny Meyer, announced that all of his restaurants will require proof of vaccine for “both employees AND customers” in all of his indoor-dining locations:
The old COVID model of limited capacity "is just so 'yesterday.' .. We know the vaccine works, and it's time to make sure that this economy moves forward." @USHGNYC

This PR stunt doesn’t apply to Shake Shack, however. At least not yet. Via CNBC:
Meyer, founder of Shake Shack and chairman of the fast casual chain’s board, said that company will set its own policy regarding vaccines. “Shake Shack will make the appropriate decision for them at the appropriate time,” he said.
In other words, his fancy restaurants in New York City will be treated differently than Shake Shacks because of science or something:

And this is a blow to quite a few blue-check who think this announcement had something to do with the burger chain:
Shake Shack will require a vaccine passport.

Shake Shack is a lightning strike moment…the one I'm waiting for is Amazon, since they do own Whole Foods ever since they acquired it as simply as we use Venmo. https://t.co/IiMAs0rixd

Shake Shack: We will require proof of vaccination for all customers and employees
Huntington Beach's Basilico’s Pasta e Vino: We will require proof of un-vaccination for all customers
Subway: We swear it's really tuna

The boss of Shake Shack is requiring proof of vaccination, and therefore I will soon be requiring new jeans. https://t.co/AS4ulq5FzD
