Health & Safety

At McDonald’s, the safety of our customers and crew is a top priority. Today, more than ever, we remain committed to following state and local health guidelines and will continue implementing coronavirus safety measures to help protect restaurant crew and customers.

Face Coverings Are Required for All Customers in Restaurants

Starting August 1st, McDonald’s will be asking every customer entering our restaurants to wear a mask or face covering. This additional safety step is based on the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reiterating face coverings are an effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Helping to Protect You & Restaurant Crew

Face Coverings & Gloves

You will notice restaurant crew wearing gloves and face coverings, both for your protection and theirs. We ask that all customers entering our U.S. restaurants to wear coverings as well.

Social Distancing

Things in our restaurants will work a little differently. Handy 6ft markers and signage, as well as crew members, will be present throughout the restaurant to help you maintain a safe distance from other guests.


As an enhancement to our already robust hygiene standards, all restaurant crew are expected to complete rigorous, hourly hand-washing routines.

Dining Room

As dining rooms begin to reopen, seating will be limited to follow safe distancing procedures. Signs and restaurant crew members will direct you to clean and available seating, and once you’re seated, we’ll deliver food to your table.

Restaurant Cleanliness

We’re going above and beyond to keep frequently used areas such as counters, kiosks and bathrooms, plus items including tables, chairs and trays, cleaned and sanitized to help keep you safe.
