What McDonald’s is telling customers about the second national lockdown

Fast food giant McDonald’s has responded to questions over whether it will keep serving during the new lockdown.

The chain was asked on Twitter whether it would be able to continue once the new shutdown begins in England on Thursday November 5.

The tough new measures were announced by the Prime Minister on Saturday night, October 31.

Pubs, restaurants, entertainment venues and non-essential shops will shut.

But restaurants will be allowed to remain open for takeaway, delivery and click and collect.

The Government guidelines state: “Restaurants can still provide takeaway and delivery services.”

At the start of the first lockdown in March, McDonald’s closed all its branches and did not reopen for delivery and Drive-Thru  until May.

In response to one fan, McDonald’s tweeted: “We will comply with any directives given by the UK government in relation to the opening of our stores next week.”

Over the last lockdown, the chain released several secret recipes for their bestseller products,  as fans coped without their fast food fix.

In May it reopened drivet-thru restaurants around the UK in phases – and with a £25 per car price cap.

Birmingham branches were some of the last to open – by June 4 for drive-thru and delivery.
