After outlining its plan earlier this spring to gradually welcome customers back to its restaurants with new precautions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, McDonald’s announced today that is resuming dining room service across Vancouver.
In a release, the company said the in-restaurant dining decision comes after “the successful reintroduction of take-out at 30 Canadian test locations, McDonald’s is welcoming guests into dining rooms using several added safeguards.”

And as part of its reopening process, the fast food chain said it will be “adding to existing high standards of cleanliness,” and restaurants will demonstrate to guests the company’s “Safety+ commitment, which includes enhanced safety and wellness measures to ensure every part of the McDonald’s experience is safe for our guests and employees.”
Some of the changes guests can expect to see will include:
- Hand sanitizer dispensers available inside restaurants;
- Floor markers to help everyone keep their distance;
- Front counters fitted with protective screens;
- Contactless payment options are available at the restaurant, and guests can also order using the McDonald’s mobile app and pay on their phone;
- Frequent sanitization of all high-contact surfaces and guest tables;
- Clearly marked/designated select tables for dine-in to respect physical distancing;
- Limited guest numbers inside based on restaurant size. This also applies to outdoor seating space.
