Aussie Pub welcomes unvaccinated guests


Australian pub owners have announced on social media that they will welcome all customers, whether or not they are vaccinated with COVID-19.

The Grand Hotel is a popular venue in the town of Heelsville, north of the capital city of Melbourne.

“Everyone is welcome at the Grand Hotel Heelsville, with or without jabs,” the post read.

The message quickly spread by word of mouth, shared 2.9 thousand times, had over 13,000 likes and hearts, and received only 95 negative reactions.

Of the 5.3 thousand comments, the answers to the posts were mostly positive.

One user writes: Thank you.I’m very happy to see that not everything is discriminatory [against] Those who choose not to have a jab. I am absolutely there to support your great business. “

Many were grateful for the establishment because they did not discriminate against unvaccinated people.

“I love the way you don’t discriminate [against] Anyone. Thank you, “another user wrote.

Another user wrote: “It’s great to see your stance of not discriminating, but you will definitely visit and support you.”

At least one person expressed concern that a government policy that would allow more freedom only to vaccinated people would create two classes of society.

“I don’t want to live in a two-tiered society, so I thank Grand Hotel Heelsville for making this stand,” wrote one user.

But not everyone is happy with it.

Another user wrote: “If this is the idea of ​​the community, I certainly wouldn’t go there in a hurry.”

One user confirmed that he was a health care worker at a hospital near the Grand Hotel and called the post “disappointing.”

“I don’t eat or drink in businesses that actively promote vaccination … and I encourage my family and friends to do the same,” she writes. However, this post did not contain any wording that directly encouraged or prevented individuals from being vaccinated.

“I hope unvaccinated patrons fall, quarrel, have a heart attack and someday don’t need my service in the ED / ICU I work for. They don’t even treat me. Please … but I have no choice, and I’m there to treat them with other highly contagious, unvaccinated patrons in the emergency department. “

In a follow-up post, Grand Hotel Healesville said he didn’t expect his post to be disseminated by word of mouth.

“We just want to let you know that we are not anti-vaxxers or non-covid followers. We believe that people are making the right choice for them, for whatever reason. We do not discriminate against those who choose not to receive jabs. “

“This post simply said that when we were finally open, we wouldn’t discriminate against anyone, but the law was amended and we went into business with a passport. If you are obliged to enter! Then we have no choice and will comply with the law. “

After state leader Dan Andrews said that if a company requires COVID-19 vaccination as a condition of entry, unvaccinated people could be locked out of society. It is a post.

“I can’t believe anyone comes up with these numbers,” he told 3AW.
