A McDonald’s restaurant in North York has temporarily closed after an employee has tested positive for COVID-19.

On November 14, the company reported that an employee from 150 Rimrock Road tested positive for COVID-19.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the decision was made to immediately shut down the restaurant for a thorough cleaning and sanitization by a certified third party,” read a statement by McDonald’s Canada.

“We are working to ensure we reopen safely,  as we know our guests depend on their local McDonald’s, and we are committed to doing our part to help our communities.”

They added that all crew members who may have been in close contact with the employee have been asked to self-quarantine until further information is available.

The employee worked their last shift on November 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

McDonald’s Canada asks any guests who may have visited the restaurant on November 9 to take directions from Ontario Public Health.

This is the second GTA McDonald’s COVID-19 case in just a few days.

According to McDonald’s Canada, an employee from the 630 Keele Street location had tested positive for the virus on November 12.
