The fast food chain said it is determined to do all they can to minimise the risk of transmission in the community.
McDonald’s will allow only two people per table for dine-in, regardless of vaccination status, from Jul 19 to Aug 8.
In its announcement via a Facebook post on Sunday (Jul 18), the fast food chain said that while it appreciates that authorities have given F&B establishments the choice to decide on which protocols to follow, it has decided to go back to the two-pax rule as it “would work best for all of us”.
Singapore on Friday announced that tighter measures will be in place from Jul 19 to Aug 8, in light of a surge of COVID-19 cases linked to KTV lounges. Among the tightened restrictions include dining-in in groups of up to five only for those who are fully vaccinated, as well as a restriction of two people per table at all hawker centres and food courts.
“As a brand that serves thousands of people of varying age groups every day, keeping our employees and customers safe remains our top priority,” McDonald’s added in its Facebook post.
“We’re determined to do all we can to minimise the risk of transmission in the community.”
McDonald’s also reminded customers to not intermingle between tables. Customers can still order McDonald’s via delivery, drive-thru and takeaway.
Other fast-food chains, such as KFC, Arnold’s, Burger King, Long John Silver and Carl’s Jr have also opted to follow the two-person dine in rule.
