“As a precaution, the decision was taken to immediately close the restaurant for cleaning and in-depth disinfection by a certified third party,” the statement said.
“We are working to ensure it is safe to reopen because we know our customers depend on their local McDonald’s and we are committed to doing our part to help our communities.
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 completed his last shift on September 13 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The company says all customers who visited the restaurant that day should follow the instructions of local public health experts.
“Preserving the health and well-being of our crew and our guests is our top priority, and we will continue to monitor and adapt measures as necessary. We continue to work with local health authorities to support our employees and customers, and we look forward to returning to service to our community as soon as possible.
