Additionally, McDonald's said that it has developed a series of divider panels and retrofit barrier solutions for both front- and back-of-house. The panels are an additional safety measure and not a replacement for consistent PPE execution or adherence to social distancing guidelines, it said.Finally, to further efforts to slow the surge in COVID-19 cases and protect restaurant teams and customers, McDonald's said it will extend its pause on re-opening dining rooms for another 30 days. "This means we will not approve the re-opening of any additional dining rooms. Locally, any dining room roll back decisions should be guided by state and local guidance. This continues to be an owner/operator-led decision, but we ask that you consult with your Operations Officer and Franchise Business Partner," it said.
