The Cariboo Hotel Pub is open once again, after Northern Health ordered their closure on Nov. 5.
According to Northern Health’s website, the order was issued due to not checking COVID-19 passports. They were sent a warning letter on Oct. 1. All restaurants are required to verify that all dine-in customers are fully vaccinated.
The order was rescinded the same day it was issued, but the pub was not open again until Monday, Nov. 8, and only for pickup and delivery.
“Due to too many unexplored phone-in complaints about our vaccine policy, we were ordered to close on Friday, November 5th,” an update posted to the Cariboo Hotel’s Facebook page reads.
“It appears that asking for passports at tables instead of at the entrance has caused some confusion for guests.”
The same day the closure order was issued, the pub made a job posting on Facebook for a door person to check vaccine passports.
