McDonald's restaurant in northwest Calgary temporarily closes after employee tests positive for COVID-19
The location re-opened on Sunday after a cleaning, according to a spokesperson
A McDonald's restaurant temporarily closed on Saturday after an employee reported that they had tested positive for COVID-19.
The restaurant, located at 8235 Bowridge Crescent N.W., reopened on Sunday morning after a "thorough cleaning and sanitization by a certified third party."
"All crew members who may have been in close contact with the employee have been asked to self-quarantine until further information is available," reads a statement from the company.
The employee last worked a shift at the restaurant on Aug. 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The company said any guests who may have visited the restaurant on that day should take direction from Alberta Health Services.
"Maintaining the health and well-being of our crew and guests is our top priority, and we will continue to monitor and adapt measures, where necessary," the statement from McDonald's reads.
This is the fourth McDonald's in the city to close due to a positive COVID-19 case.
The Riverbend location, located at 20 Riverglen Drive S.E., voluntarily closed two times due to positive cases of COVID-19 among employees.
