The news around the COVID-19 outbreak is constantly changing, but information about food safety and how to keep yourself healthy is crucial right now. Here is a comprehensive list on the foods you should be stocking up on during this period of social distancing, as well as information about your local grocery stores’ changing hours, an explanation of “no-contact delivery,” and a guide on how to help your community and its businesses throughout closures.
McDonald's locations across the nation are closing their dining rooms and still fulfilling drive-thru, to-go, and delivery orders. While the company aims to serve their customers safely amid the coronavirus pandemic, they are making some changes to their procedures including getting rid of some menu items—like day-long breakfast—for the time being.
According to Business Insider, it was announced internally that McDonald's restaurants will no longer be serving breakfast all day, along with other menu items like grilled chicken sandwiches, chicken tenders, or salads. McDonald's will only be removing these menu items for a limited time. Business Insider obtained a document outlining these changes, but the changes are not being made due to supply shortages.
Instead, the alterations are being made to make it easier on employees and allow for a more simplified process when filling orders. The items that remain on the docket are best-sellers like Big Macs, hamburgers, quarter pounders, fries, and the Filet-O-Fish. Although all-day breakfast is not available, breakfast meals can still be ordered in the morning.
McDonald's senior vice president of operations Bill Garrett told Delish in a statement that these changes are being made to better provide for customers during this time:
To simplify operations in our kitchens and for our crew, and ensure the best possible experience for our customers, we are working with our franchisees and local restaurants to focus on serving our most popular choices and will begin temporarily removing some items from the menu over the next few weeks," he said. "We will regularly evaluate the situation and look to move back to our regular menu as soon as possible.
