The Gist

All customers will need to wear some form of facial covering in all McDonald's locations in the US starting August 1st.

The List

  • The new policy comes as a response to the sudden surge in Covid-19 cases across the United States. 
  • 80% of McDonald's locations are already within areas which have mandated facial coverings. 
  • Customers who refuse to wear a facial covering will be offered one by employees. 
  • All non-compliant customers will be asked to stand away from other patrons to receive their order as takeout. 
  • McDonald's has also postponed its plan to allow customers to eat their meals inside restaurant dining areas by 30 days.
