Bob Chinn’s Crabhouse Restaurant in Wheeling announced a temporary closure Saturday, citing the cause as “unforeseen business circumstances” caused by vaccination certificate requirements in the suburb of Cook County.
In a post on social media, the popular suburban establishment announced that it will stop all activities from Sunday to Monday 7 February.
“Due to unforeseen business circumstances caused by the new Cook County COVID-19 vaccination card mandate, we have made the difficult decision to close our doors temporarily,” the restaurant said on Facebook.
During the closure period, Bob Chinn’s plans to “reset the restaurant”[ads1];, update the building and give the team members some “much needed rest”.
As of Jan. 3, people ages 5 and older must present proof of vaccination at indoor Cook County suburbs where food or beverages are served, including bars and restaurants as well as other establishments such as gyms and entertainment videos.
Chicago also implemented similar requirements, saying such measures are necessary to protect citizens’ health and well-being in response to an alarming increase in COVID-19 cases.
