As COVID-19 cases in the United States pass four million, fast food chains are now looking to enforce new measures to ensure a safe environment for all. In an effort to maintain the safety of its customers and staff, McDonald’s is now introducing a new mask policy for those visiting its locations.
According to reports, starting August 1 all McDonald’s locations will require customers to wear masks. If a customer declines or does not have a mask, the chain has secondary policies in place.
“In those situations where a customer declines to wear a face covering, we’ll put in place additional procedures to take care of them in a friendly, expedited way,” McDonald’s said in a statement, also noting employees will be trained “to ensure they are prepared to address this new policy in a friendly and positive way.”
Maskless customers will be guided to designated locations in restaurants where they can order and wait for their food away from other customers.
