Bob Chinn’s Crab House Is Temporarily Closing Due to Evidence of Vaccination – NBC Chicago
Bob Chinn’s Crabhouse Restaurant in Wheeling announced a temporary closure on Saturday, citing “unforeseen business circumstances” caused by vaccination requirements in suburban Cook County.
In a social media post, the popular suburban establishment announced that it will be pausing all business from Sunday to Monday, February 7th.
“Due to unforeseen business circumstances caused by the new COVID-19 vaccination card mandate in Cook County, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our doors,” the restaurant shared on Facebook.
During the closure, Bob Chinn plans to “reset” the restaurant, modernize the building and give team members “much-needed rest”.
Effective January 3, individuals 5 and older will be required to provide proof of vaccination indoors in any suburb of Cook County where food or drink is served, including bars and restaurants, as well as other facilities such as fitness centers and entertainment videos.
Chicago has also introduced similar requirements, stating that such action is needed to protect the health and well-being of residents in response to an alarming surge in COVID-19 cases.
