Another McDonald's in Richmond closes due to COVID

Another McDonald’s restaurant in Richmond had to close its doors after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The diner at No. 3 Road near Granville Avenue – famous for being the company’s first restaurant in Canada – shut down for cleaning on Sunday, but has since reopened.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the decision was made to immediately shut down the restaurant for a thorough cleaning and sanitization by a certified third party,” read a statement from McDonald’s Canada.

“All crew members who may have been in close contact with the employee have been asked to self-quarantine until further information is available. The employee worked their last shift on November 20.

“For any guests who may have visited the restaurant on November 20 please take directions from the experts at BC Centre for Disease Control by visiting their website at: http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/diseases-conditions/covid-19.”

The Richmond News reported last week how the Alderbridge Way McDonald’s closed for a day after a staff member tested positive for COVID.

McDonald’s Canada advised that any customers who visited that restaurant on Nov. 14 should also take direction from the BC Centre for Disease Control.
