McDonald’s and its franchisees are working closely with local authorities and the police, and may determine that it is necessary to close drive-thru lanes if queues cause disruption at busier sites or put employees or customers at risk.

The fast food giant has introduced a number of changes to their restaurants, including social distancing in kitchens and Perspex screens at drive-thrus. Customers are being encouraged to pay by contactless.
