Hello everyone,

It was just a week ago that I sent my last message, and since then it certainly feels like the world has changed once again. These are uncertain times, but I’m encouraged to see everyone coming together to follow the measures put in place by our respective governments and public health authorities. Truly, the only way through this situation is to work together as one.

At McDonald’s Canada, protecting the health and well-being of our people and our guests has been our number one priority throughout this crisis. It has guided every decision we’ve made as the situation evolved. It is with this in mind that I want to let all our valued guests know of an important announcement.

Closure of Take-Out Service

As of March 22nd, we will no longer be offering take-out service in our restaurants. This means our dining rooms will now be completely closed. In addition, we will also stop offering curbside pickup. However, Drive-thru and McDelivery service will still be available for those seeking convenient and affordable food options while they practice social distancing.

Select restaurants may continue to offer take-out service in communities where there are specific needs, including locations near hospitals and healthcare facilities. We are working closely with our franchisees to identify these locations.

This was by no means an easy decision. As we assessed guidance from governments and health authorities and listened to the concerns of our franchisees and restaurant crew, we felt it was important to take action.

We know there are people in our communities without a car to access Drive-thru, and not everyone can access McDelivery, which is why we provided take-out service for as long as we could. Please understand that this change was made for the continued safety of our employees and guests across the country.

Also note, there was a forum post on RFD from a employee who said that they were told this would happen as of March 23.

It's possible that they were hoping that the worker wouldn't test positive, but already decided to take action even though it was delayed.

They probably wanted to keep business as semi usual during the weekend.

I can't find the post at this time - I did try to find it before posting this.

I think you are referring to me. My daughter works there (did as we forced her to stop ) and told me 2 different announcements that she found out would happen while working that would be announced publicly the next day. Both were correct.

If drive-thrus and grocery stores are closed then there would be panic, riots and scary times. The reason why we haven't reached panic mode is because are food supply is still intact.

Unrealistic. We would truly go Mad Max if they did.

Spoken like a true elitist.

For some ordinary people who can't afford ripoff Uber Eats if unable to cook at home or an essential worker out on the job that still needs takeout, it is essential.

since when is garbage fast food essential? you think thats what essential workers eat on their break? theres plenty of cheap food you can get at the grocery store that doesnt require cooking.

Sorry but fast food is essential because it meets the needs of a quick bite before a shift. If that bothers you so much order salad instead of fries and tell them to put the dressing on the side so you can control how much dressing you use.
