Toronto McDonald’s closes after employees tested COVID-19


McDonald’s Canada has temporarily closed one of its restaurants in Toronto after an employee tested positive for COVID-19 on October 13.According to McDonalds in a statement to the Daily Hive on Tuesday, an employee at their location at 630 Keele Street in Toronto said he tested positive for the virus.

The restaurant has decided to temporarily close the restaurant in order to properly clean and disinfect the store.

The employee had last worked on October 6 from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. and all team members who might have been in close contact were asked to quarantine themselves until more information are available.

McDonalds is asking any customer who may have been in the store to follow the Ontario Public Health Unit’s instructions on its website for next steps.

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

The three cases also resulted in the temporary closure of restaurants.

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

“We continue to work with local health authorities to support our employees and customers, and we look forward to returning to serving our community as soon as possible.
