A California restaurant owner is fining his patrons $5 for wearing a mask or ‘bragging’ about COVID vaccine – which he says he’ll donate to charity.
Chris Castleman, the owner of Fiddleheads Cafe in Mendocino, has been a vocal critic of the coronavirus restrictions since early in the pandemic, often making the news for his controversial stances.
California and Hawaii are the only two states which still require masks indoors for those who have been vaccinated after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said vaccinated people do not have to wear a mask in most settings.
Fiddleheads, which displays a ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ flag in the window, posted signs on its windows on Monday announcing its latest policy, SF Gate reported.
The sign reads: ‘$5 FEE ADDED TO ORDERS PLACED WHILE WEARING A FACE MASK.’
