The new changes come into effect starting August 1, where the company also announced it would still be still halting in-store dining from re-opening for another 30 days. McDonald's USA said in a press statement that "From the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we've based decisions on our top priority: protecting the health and well-being of our and our franchisees' employees and customers".

Joe Erlinger, President, McDonald's USA and Mark Salebra, National Franchise Leadership Alliance Chair continued, adding:

"This public health crisis continues, with one million new COVID-19 cases in the last two weeks alone. At the same time, we're learning more. The latest science suggests droplets have the potential to stay in the air for extended periods of time, increasing the risk of virus spread, especially from asymptomatic carriers. As a result, the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reiterates face coverings are an effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19".

"To that end, and in order to protect the safety of our employees and customers, we will ask all customers to wear face coverings when entering our US restaurants effective August 1. While nearly 82% of our restaurants are in states or localities that require facial coverings for both crew and customers today, it's important we protect the safety of all employees and customers".

These are the new changes McDonald's USA is pushing across the country starting August 1:

  • Requiring customer face coverings in the restaurants
  • Adding protective panels to front- and back-of-house
  • Pausing dining room re-openings for an additional 30 days
