An employee at a North York McDonald’s has tested positive for COVID-19 and the restaurant has shut down for thorough cleaning.
According to McDonald’s, on September 29 an employee at the 150 Rimrock Road location north of Toronto reported that they tested positive for the virus.
Crew members who may have been in close contact with the infected employee have been asked to self-quarantine until further notice.
The employee had last worked on September 22 from 3 pm to 8 pm.
In order to ensure everyone’s safety, the restaurant has decided to shut down for thorough cleaning and sanitization in the meantime.
“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,” said McDonald’s in an email to Daily Hive.
“In addition to our existing high standards of cleanliness, restaurants continue to demonstrate our Safety+ commitment, which includes enhanced safety measures to ensure every part of the McDonald’s experience is safe for our guests and employees.”
Earlier this month, three other McDonald’s employees tested positive for coronavirus, two at their 420 Highway 7 location in Richmond Hill, and the other at the 2781 Dufferin Street location in Toronto.
