If you’re not a fan of delivery and miss getting your hands on your Big Mac while it’s hot, then get excited. It’s just been announced that McDonald’s Canada is starting to reopen restaurants for takeout services only.

The chain is set to test 30 restaurants with new protective measures and procedures will be monitored and adapted.

“To keep our guests and hardworking employees safe, we’re approaching every stage of this transition gradually, beginning with enhanced safeguards in a small group of restaurants that we will test and learn from,” said Doug Fry, Senior Director, National Operations, McDonald’s Canada in a release. “We will continue to take the lead from all levels of government and local health authorities as we monitor and adapt what’s necessary in these test restaurants.” 


The measures that McDonald’s Canada is taking are:

  • Restaurants will reopen for take-out service in addition to remaining open for McDelivery, Curbside Service, and Drive-Thru. Dining room seating and Play Places will remain closed. 
  • Contact-free service will extend to in-restaurant take-out 
  • There will be dedicated restaurant entrances and exits, with social distancing markings inside and out, for both guests and McDelivery drivers. 
  • Every second register will be used in-restaurant and will be fitted with protective screens 
  • High-touch areas will be sanitized frequently including kiosks and washrooms, which will both be open. 
  • Drink refills and reusable mugs will remain on hold, and condiment stations closed. 
  • The number of guests permitted inside a restaurant at one time will be limited based on restaurant size.
