“This is the most logical thing I’ve ever seen,” he told CNBC. “I’m not a scientist, but I know how to read data and what I see is that this is a crisis of people who have not been vaccinated, and I feel a strong responsibility, on our part as business leaders, to take care of our team and our guests, and that’s what we’re doing.”

Meyer told CNBC that Shake Shack will make its own decision about vaccines at a later time.
