McDonald’s Canada has announced that an employee at one of their Calgary locations has tested positive for COVID-19.

On Saturday, August 15, a McDonald’s employee from its 8235 Bowridge Crescent NW location reported that they tested positive for coronavirus.

The employee’s last shift was on August 12, from 9 am to 3 pm. All staff who may have been in close contact with the employee have been asked to self-quarantine until further information is available.

This location has now been shut down for thorough cleaning and sanitation by a third party.
