McDonald’s temporarily shuts Laval location

McDonald’s Canada has announced that after finding out an employee at a Laval location was COVID-19-positive, the company decided to close the location temporarily and until further notice.

According to the company, on April 20 an employee working at the 2715 des Aristocrates Ave. McDonald’s location (just off Autoroute 440 in eastern Laval) informed management of having recently received a confirmation of having tested positive for COVID-19.

“As a measure of extreme prudence, McDonald’s Canada decided to immediately close the restaurant so that an in-depth cleaning and sanitation by experts in WINMAR cleaning could be carried out,” McDonald’s Canada spokesperson in Montreal Ryma Boussoufa said in a statement.

According to Boussoufa, all employees at the McDonald’s location who might have been in contact with the infected employee were asked to put themselves in isolation until further information was made available to them. The employee in question last worked on April 11 from 1 pm to 4:15 pm.
