Restaurant owners in Minneapolis and St. Paul say they have lost up to 40% in business thanks to the introduction of vaccine passports.

After the mayors of the twin cities imposed the scheme for restaurants, night clubs, and bars last month, businesses in Minneapolis sued authorities for what they asserted was a “calculated and purposed to attempt to prod the general public toward vaccination” at the expense of their livelihoods.

A court refused to side with the business owners, but they have been proven right just two weeks after the mandate came into effect.

“Unfortunately when the vaccine-or-test mandate went into effect we saw a 30% drop in our Minneapolis locations overnight,” said Craft and Crew Hospitality co-owner Luke Derheim.

Derheim noted how people were avoiding city locations and going to the suburbs to escape having to comply with the vaccine passport scheme.

“I think a lot of people want to come to St. Louis Park, Minnetonka and Hopkins because there’s less regulation if they’re vaccinated or not,” he said.

Jason Rackner, Bunny’s Bar and Grill assistant general manager, voiced similar concerns, telling KTSP, “With the mandate especially, business is down anywhere between 30-40%.”

The scheme will remain in effect until at least the end of this month, after which it could be renewed.

St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter suggested that the mandate had reduced infection rates.

However, as we have exhaustively documented, there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that vaccine passports stop the spread of COVID-19 in any setting.

Investigations by both experts in Spain and the UK government concluded that the scheme had no impact on transmission rates and could even make them worse.

As we highlighted last week, despite COVID restrictions in European countries starting to be relaxed, the EU wants to keep the onerous system in place for at least another year.

Authorities in Australia have also insisted that vaccine passport schemes could last for “years.”

Back in December, the French Minister of Health admitted that vaccine passports are a “disguised” form of mandatory vaccines.
