McDonald’s just stopped takeaways on 17 April 2020, but on the morning of 19 April 2020, they announced that all restaurant operations will be suspended until the end of Circuit Breaker.
According to a press release by McDonald’s, they’ve been advised by the Ministry of Health to do so as a form of preventative measure. All restaurant operations, including McDelivery and Drive-Thru services will be suspended until 4 May 2020. Services will resume on 5 May 2020.
Starting 11am on 19 April 2020, all McDonald’s restaurants in Singapore will be closed. The last order for delivery will be at 10:30am.
There are more than 135 McDonald’s outlets nationwide, and more than 10,000 employees under McDonald’s Singapore.
We’re sad to hear that McDonald’s is suspending its services, but it’s really for the best now. There were five McDonald’s employees who tested positive for COVID-19 on 12 April 2020, and another two reported a few days later.
After McDonald’s banned takeaway orders on Friday, long queues were seen at their various Drive-Thru outlets, and some unknowing customers were turned away when they headed down to dapao their food.
