CORRECTION: Due to incorrect information provided to Global News by McDonald’s Canada, we incorrectly stated the closed restaurant is in Saskatoon. The closed restaurant is in Warman, Sask. We regret the error.
According to the company, the employee works at the McDonald’s at 920 Centennial Blvd.
The person worked their last shift on Oct. 31, from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., says McDonald’s Canada.
“Out of an abundance of caution, the decision was made to immediately shut down the restaurant for a thorough cleaning and sanitization by a certified third party,” McDonald’s Canada said in a press release.
“We are working to ensure we reopen safely, as we know our guests depend on their local McDonald’s and we are committed to doing our part to help our communities.”
As of Saturday afternoon, the restaurant has been re-opened.
