No More Happy Meals
Since 11 am yesterday Sunday 19 April 2020, McDonald’s has closed all its outlets in Singapore.
The closure includes 135 island-wide McDonald’s, 17 Drive-Thrus, 42 dessert kiosks, and 48 McCafé shops.
McDonald’s employs more than 10,000 workers in Singapore.
McDonald’s decision was made following an advisory from the Ministry of Health.
On 12 April 2020, five employees tested positive who worked at three McDonald’s outlets including at LIDO, Forum Galleria, and Parklane, three popular shopping malls.
Last Saturday 18 April 2020, two more employees tested positive who were working at an outlet in Changi Airport Terminal 3 and a drive-thru kiosk.
McDonald’s Singapore will review its closure on 4 May 2020 when the Singapore Government considers whether to relax or extend the present lockdown.
