McDonald’s Canada has temporarily closed one of its Toronto restaurant locations after an employee had tested positive for COVID-19 on October 13.

According to McDonalds in a statement to Daily Hive, on Tuesday, an employee from their 630 Keele Street location in Toronto reported that they had tested positive for the virus.

The restaurant decided to temporarily shut down the restaurant in order to thoroughly clean and sanitize the store.

The employee had last worked on October 6 from 3 pm to 11 pm and all team members that may have been in close contact have been asked to self-quarantine until more information is available.

McDonalds is asking any customer that may have been in the store to take directions from Ontario Public Health Services on their website to get their next steps.

Last week, three McDonald’s locations, two in Toronto and one in Mississauga, reported positive cases among a few of its employees.

The three cases also resulted in a temporary closure of the restaurant locations.

“Maintaining the health and well-being of our crew and guests is our top priority, and we will continue to monitor and adapt measures, where necessary,” said the fast food chain.

“We continue to work with local health authorities to support our people and our guests, and look forward to getting back to serving our community as soon as we can.”
