Two cases of COVID-19 at Toronto McDonald's locations were reported in the last week and the employees who tested positive were at work during that time as well.
McDonald's told Narcity that on October 9, two employees who worked at different locations reported that they tested positive for the virus.
Both restaurants were immediately shut down so that they could be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized which was a certified third party.

the two locations where employees tested positive recently
One of the locations that has a positive case is at 1530 Albion Road.
All of the crew members who might've been in close contact with them have been asked to quarantine.
That person last worked on October 3 from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
At the 2781 Dufferin Street location, an employee who tested positive had their last shift at work on October 7 from 3:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Crew members were also asked to quarantine if they were in close contact.
Both locations reopened on the morning of October 10 after the cleaning and sanitization were done.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, had close contact with a confirmed case or are part of an outbreak investigation, you can only get tested at an assessment centre.
You can go get a test done at a pharmacy if you don't have symptoms.
