First Minneapolis restaurant requires vaccine proof or negative COVID test to dine inside
August 24, 2021
The owners of a downtown Minneapolis vegan and gluten-free cafe are asking patrons to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test for anyone over 12 years old wishing to dine indoors.
The new policy, which starts Tuesday, Aug. 24, makes Hark! Cafe one of the first restaurants in the Twin Cities and in Minnesota to require proof of vaccination. The move follows entertainment venues such as First Avenue, which put in place a similar policy earlier this month.
The cities of New York and San Francisco both require vaccine proof to enter restaurants, among other indoor venues such as bars and gyms.
