A taco restaurant in Los Angeles temporarily closed both locations on Sunday, raising concerns for the safety of its employees, as some customers refused to wear masks and reportedly harassed staff for asking them to.
“Our taco stands are exhausted from constant conflict,” said a statement from Hugo’s Tacos, which has restaurants in Atwater Village and Studio City. “The staff has been harassed, called names, and objects and liquids have been thrown at them. A mask symbolizes nothing more than our desire to keep our staff healthy. “
