At McDonald’s Canada, in both franchised and corporate-owned restaurants, our top priority is to protect the health and well-being of our people and our guests – it’s at the core of everything we do.

While continuing to operate in line with guidance from public health authorities and all levels of government, we remain committed to the safety of the communities we serve in order to meet the needs of the many Canadians who rely on us for food and beverages. This includes the decision to temporarily close a restaurant where an employee has tested positive or is presumed positive for COVID-19 and undergo a thorough cleaning by a certified third-party company. This closure is done out of an abundance of caution for the safety of employees and the community.

In addition to our existing high standards of cleanliness, restaurants continue to demonstrate our Safety+ commitment, which includes enhanced safety measures to ensure every part of the McDonald’s experience is safe. Below are some of the measures to help protect our guests and employees. For more information on Safety+, visit

We’ve also maintained a commitment to remain transparent in our communications, so that employees and guests are informed and can contact their local public health authorities for directions, if needed. We will regularly update the information below when we have been notified of an employee testing positive for COVID-19 in our restaurants, resulting in a restaurant closure for cleaning and sanitization, by province or territory, in the last 14 days. In order to protect privacy, we will not release any personal information.
