Nov 19 2020, 8:10 pm

A McDonald’s in Toronto temporarily closed on Wednesday afternoon after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

On November 18, an employee from the 1045 Pape Avenue location in Toronto reported testing positive for the virus.

The restaurant decided to “immediately shut down” operations out of an “abundance of caution” to conduct a thorough cleaning and sanitization. The restaurant has since re-opened.

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 17 from 9 am to 5 pm.

On Monday, a Mississauga location reported an employee testing positive for the virus.

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

McDonald’s Canada asks any guests who may have visited the restaurant on November 17 to take directions from Ontario Public Health.
