2 More McDonald’s Outlets Closed as 2 Employees Were Tested Positive for COVID-19


McDonald’s is no longer letting people dabao, and you thought that’s the last you see them in the news.

But no—today, it’s reported that two more McDonald’s outlets would be closed until further notice when 2 more of their employees were tested positive for COVID-19.

And it even led to a temporary closure of a petrol station.

Here’s what happened.

2 More McDonald’s Outlets Closed as 2 Employees Were Tested Positive for COVID-19

According to TODAYonline, 2 more McDonald’s employees have been tested positive for COVID-19.

They’re a 74-year-old Singaporean who works at the Changi Airport Terminal 3 outlet and a 36-year-old Chinese national who works in the Shell Tampines drive-thru outlet.

Both the stores have been closed for deep cleaning and would remain close until further notice.

And as a precautionary measure, the Shell petrol station, which is located along Tampines Ave 2, would also be closed until 24 April 2020, 7am.

All employees who had worked in the same McDonald’s outlets have been put on a 14-day leave of absence.

7 McDonald’s Employees Now Tested Positive for the Coronavirus

6 days ago, it was reported that 5 McDonald’s employees from 4 different outlets had been tested positive for the virus, and the restaurants would be closed until further notice.

They are the outlets in Lido, Forum Galleria, Parklane and Geylang East Central.

4 of them are linked.

And yesterday, McDonald’s suddenly announced that they won’t be allowing takeaway from today onwards, in an effort to “encourage our customers and especially more of our senior employees to continue staying home and staying safe.”
