MCDONALD’S is opening its doors again so you can pop in for takeaways.
The fast food chain revealed a month ago that it would close to walk-ins and offer delivery and drive-thru only.
It will start reopening for walk-ins at some locations this week as it tests out new safety measures.
It then hopes to open all branches in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland from Monday February 22 onwards.
Paul Pomroy, McDonald’s boss for UK and Ireland, said: “A month ago we made the voluntary decision to temporarily close walk-in Takeaway while we reviewed our safety measures to ensure they reflect the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Working closely with third party safety expert NSF International, we identified a small number of changes to further enhance our procedures, and we are currently in the process of rolling these out to restaurants.
“New safety measures being introduced include visors as well as face coverings for customer facing employees, revised guidance and processes for our couriers to support their safe working and enhanced processes for managing customer and courier flow in restaurants.
“Once again, we would like to thank our franchisees, managers and employees for their ongoing commitment in supporting and implementing all of our updated procedures.
“The wellbeing of our people, as well as our suppliers, couriers and our customers remains our top priority, and we are confident the new processes in place will further enhance our already robust safety measures.
