McDonalds are opening some Restaurants for Walk-in orders this week…

McDonald’s have confirmed they will start reopening for walk-ins at some locations this week to test out new safety measures.

If this test is successful they hope 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.

Mr Pomroy also thanked staff. He said: “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.”

McDonald’s has still served customers through home delivery via Uber Eats and Just Eat.

Hopefully this will help ease the long queues for McDonalds Drive-Thrus.
