Thursday, a restaurant employee at 4100 1time Avenue confirmed to his superiors that he had tested positive for the new coronavirus.
“As a measure of extreme caution”, the establishment therefore decided to close its doors in order to be able to carry out an in-depth cleaning and sanitation operation by an external company.
“We are working to reopen as quickly and safely as possible and we are determined to do our part to help communities,” media relations for the fast food chain said in a statement.
However, we do not know the said date of reopening of this McDonald’s.
The employee in question completed his last shift on October 9 and that all his colleagues who have been in contact with him have placed themselves in voluntary isolation.
Customers who would have frequented the restaurant on that date, between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., are advised to comply with public health guidelines.
