McDonald's Canada is going take-out and drive-thru only due to COVID-19

McDonald's Canada is officially moving to take-out, delivery and drive-thru only due to COVID-19.

On Monday, the beloved American fast food chain announced that all of its restaurants would close seating areas, including the use of self-service beverage bars and kiosks.

The change will take place immediately.

President of McDonald's USA Joe Erlinger said, "It is remarkable how franchisees, suppliers, agencies and company employees have come together in recent days."

"During these uncertain times that impact all of us in personal ways, our ability to support each other, our people and our communities will ensure we emerge from this crisis stronger than before."

The move comes after Starbucks and Tim Hortons removed seating in their restaurants and switched to take-out only earlier this week.
