McDonald’s has announced on Sunday evening that they will be closing all their restaurants in the UK and Ireland by 7pm on Monday, 23rd March at the latest.
“This is not a decision we are taking lightly, but one made with the well-being and safety of our employees in mind as well as in the best interests of our customers,” the statement on their social media channels reads.
“We will work with local community groups to responsibly distribute food and drink from our restaurants in the coming days.
“Thank you to our brilliant employees for their hard work during this incredibly challenging time. We look forward to seeing you all again as soon as it is safe for us to reopen.”
When the outlets will reopen, is not clear yet.
