A nation awaits as McDonald’s confirms it’s soon to re-open.
However, the burger chain will only do so when it’s proved safe for customers and staff.
Plans are being worked on to ensure safe distancing, PPE awareness and limiting capacity.
Paul Pomroy, McDonald’s chief executive officer for UK and Ireland, said:
“Restarting our business is not an easy task even when reopening in a limited capacity.
“We have set ourselves some key criteria for reopening, all of which take time – first and foremost ensuring the wellbeing of our people and creating the right environment for them to return to work; secondly ensuring we have enough supply of fresh produce; and finally working in-step with Government guidelines to ensure the safety of our customers.
“For now, we remain closed, and will only reopen when we are absolutely confident we can have the right measures in place to ensure everyone’s wellbeing.”
