A McDonald’s in Mississauga temporarily closed on Sunday evening after an employee had tested positive for COVID-19.

On November 15, an employee from the 6410 Millcreek Drive location in Mississauga reported testing positive for the virus.
The restaurant decided to “immediately shut down” operations out of an “abundance of caution,” in order to conduct a thorough cleaning and sanitization. The restaurant re-opened Monday morning.

Crew members who may have worked or have been in close contact with the affected employee have been asked to self-quarantine.

According to McDonald’s, the employee last worked on November 12 from 3 pm to 11 pm.

Over the weekend, another McDonald’s restaurant in North York also reported a positive case among its employees.

This case has now made it the third GTA McDonald’s COVID-19 case in just a few days.

According to the fast-food company, an employee from the 630 Keele Street location had tested positive for the virus on November 12.

McDonald’s Canada asks any guests who may have visited the restaurant on November 12 to take directions from Ontario Public Health.
