Fast food giant McDonald’s has responded to questions about whether it will continue to serve during the new lockdown.
The chain was asked on Twitter if it could continue once the new shutdown begins in England on Thursday 5th November.
The tough new measures were announced by the Prime Minister on Saturday evening, October 31st.
Pubs, restaurants, entertainment and non-essential shops will be closed.
However, restaurants are allowed to remain open for takeout, delivery, and click and pickup.
The government’s guidelines state, “Restaurants can continue to offer takeaway and delivery services.”
At the beginning of the first lockdown in March, McDonald’s closed all branches and did not reopen for delivery and drive-thru until May.
In response to a fan, McDonald’s tweeted, “We will adhere to all UK government guidelines regarding our stores opening next week.”
During the last lockdown, the chain released several secret recipes for its bestselling products when fans got by without their fast food solution.
In May, drive-through restaurants were gradually reopened across the UK – with a price cap of £ 25 per car.
The Birmingham branches were some of the last to open – through June 4th for transit and delivery.
