A McDonald’s restaurant located at 12090 rue Sherbrooke Est, in Montreal, had to close its doors again on Sunday because an employee tested positive for COVID-19.
This is at least the second time that this establishment has had to temporarily cease operations for this reason since the start of the pandemic.
“We have asked all team members who may have been in close contact with the employee to self-isolate until further information is released. The last shift during which the employee worked was on November 12 from 2 to 6:30 p.m., ”McDonald’s said in a statement Monday morning.
Customers who have frequented the restaurant on November 12 are invited to follow the instructions of public health experts by remaining vigilant in the face of the appearance of possible symptoms.
“As a measure of extreme caution, the decision was taken to immediately close the restaurant for a thorough cleaning and sanitation by a certified third party,” said the American fast food company.
Several McDonald’s restaurants across the province have temporarily closed their doors in recent months because employees were infected with COVID-19.
