All of the McDonald’s restaurants in Columbus, Phenix City, Valley and LaGrange are eliminating dining inside the restaurant, owner-operator John Pezold said.
News 3 incorrectly reported that the restaurants would be going to drive-through only. Customers can purchase food inside the restaurant, but can’t eat in the dining areas. The kiosks have been temporarily disabled and all orders must be placed at the counter.
That will impact 20 restaurants in the Chattahoochee Valley. The measures come amid the growing coronavirus concerns.
“This is the right decision to make at this moment,” Pezold said. “We need to be vigilant about everybody’s safety.”
Doors and surfaces will be sanitized as people come and go, Pezold said.
