150

From 7pm today, McDonald’s will temporarily close all of its UK and Irish restaurants.

CEO of McDonald’s UK and Ireland ‘Paul Pomroy’ stated “Over the last 24 hours, it has become clear that maintaining safe social distancing whilst operating busy takeaway and Drive Thru restaurants is increasingly difficult”.

McDonald’s will also be working with local community groups to distribute food and drink from their restaurants.
