Good news for McDonald's fans in Cork as company releases statement about reopening

All McDonald's drive-thrus will reopen by June 4.

In a statement released earlier today, the fast-food chain revealed that all drive-thrus in the UK and Ireland will reopen by Thursday, June 4.

Drive-thrus will commence reopening from Tuesday, June 2, with the company stating that they will also be expanding the availability of McDelivery via Uber Eats or Just Eat.

However, the company has stated that they will be offering a reduced menu for the time being, with certain items such as milkshakes, wraps and breakfast items not available.

The news follows the opening of six drive-thru restaurants in Dublin last week.

A statement on the McDonald's Ireland website says that the company has sought the views of both customers and employees on phased reopening.

In order to adhere to social distancing, the restaurants will have fewer staff members working on each shift and restaurants will be operating on reduced opening hours from 11am-10pm.

A number of other measures including the addition of perspex screens in the kitchen and service areas and staff temperatures checks will be in place to keep staff and customers safe.

"We are delighted to be returning to communities across the UK and Ireland, but it will look different and will take a little longer," McDonald's stated, asking customers to please bear with them.

The locations of the reopening restaurants will be confirmed from June 2 on the McDonald's website and social media channels.
