McDonald’s announced on Monday that it is temporarily closing 38 outlets in Hong Kong in view of the worsening COVID-19 pandemic.
Other branches will have shortened opening hours, with around 90 closing at 6pm.
The fast food chain — which has over 245 stores in Hong Kong — joins a growing list of restaurants and chains closing temporarily, adjusting opening hours or suspending dine-in services as the city faces its worst COVID-19 outbreak in more than two years.
McDonald’s said in a Facebook post that its operations are facing “unprecedented difficulties”, with its manpower and freight services greatly affected.
It added that the waiting time for food pickup and delivery will be longer than usual, while the supply of some food and beverages is unstable.
