If you hit up McDonald's in Calgary recently, you may want to double-check the location and date you visited. Despite precautions being put in place to limit the spread of COVID-19, a Calgary Mcdonald's shut down after an employee tested positive. The restaurant immediately closed its doors on Wednesday, April 8, following the discovery. The fast-food giant has released information on when the employee's last shift was. 

According to an email sent to Narcity, an employee working at a McDonald's at 1600 90 Ave. S.W. in Calgary tested positive for COVID-19

Due to this positive test result, the location was forced to shut its doors immediately and conduct a thorough cleaning and sanitation. 

McDonald's has confirmed with Narcity that a third party would be conducting this cleaning. 

Once the go-ahead is given by public health authorities, the restaurant will reopen. At this time, it's not clear when this location will be open to the public again.

Any coworker who had come into close contact with the employee has been asked to self-isolate until further notice. 

No information has been given on who the employee was and what position they had. Therefore, it's also unclear if the employee conducted delivery services

The last shift they worked was on Thursday, April 2, where they worked from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. It's unknown how often the employee worked. 

Anyone who may have visited the restaurant on April 2, is asked to take direction from Alberta Health Services

The Calgary Herald also confirmed that a Co-op employee in the city tested positive for COVID-19. 

The employee allegedly worked at the Village Square gas bar. 

In a recent post on the chain's Facebook page, it states that the restaurant is adapting procedures by taking the advice of health authorities to offer a safe environment for all employees. 

Inside the restaurant, employees are being asked to keep a distance of two metres from each other.

They've also been asked to use gloves when taking payment and handling orders. 

On March 22, the global restaurant chain announced they would no longer be doing take-out services. This caused all their dining rooms to close immediately. 

Right now, McDonald's delivers on a variety of apps in Calgary including Uber Eats, SkipTheDishes, and DoorDash.
