At McDonald’s Canada, our top priority is to protect the health and well-being of our employees and our guests – it’s at the core of everything we do. In addition to our existing high standards of cleanliness, restaurants have implemented enhanced protective measures during the pandemic to ensure every part of the McDonald’s experience is safe.
Throughout the pandemic we have communicated restaurant closures due to COVID-19 so that restaurant employees and guests were continually informed of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in restaurants and could take proper measures. This was important during the early months of the pandemic and we posted an ongoing COVID-19 tracker to report on any change of status in our restaurants. Due to the increased numbers of Canadians who are vaccinated, a corresponding reduction in impacts on our operations, and the introduction of vaccine passports or cards for restaurants in most provinces, the tracker has been discontinued as of September 14, 2021.
We will continue to operate in line with guidance from public health authorities and all levels of government. As always, we remain committed to the safety of the communities in which we serve, in order to meet the needs of the many Canadians who rely on us for food and beverages.
