Employee tests positive at downtown McDonald’s

Cleaning and sanitation by certified third party

The downtown McDonald’s restaurant was closed Thursday after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

McDonald’s Canada said the shutdown allows for a thorough cleaning and sanitation of the 4840 52nd Ave. restaurant by a certified third party.

“We are working to ensure we reopen safely, as we know our guests depend on their local McDonald’s and we are committed to doing our part to help our communities,” said a statement from the company.

All employees who may have been in close contact with the employee have been asked to self-quarantine until further information is available.

The employee worked Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Any customers who may have visited the restaurant at that time should take directions from Alberta Health Services, available at albertahealthservices.ca.

“We continue to work with local health authorities to support our people and our guests, and look forward to getting back to serving our community as soon as we can,” said the company.
