McDonalds is considering re-closing its dining rooms. Many fast-food restaurants could close their dining areas because of the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19. Hospitality Expert and former president of the Houston Restaurant Association Jonathan Horowitz says their hiring problems and drive through windows make it a pretty safe decision for them.
"That really doesn't work for the majority of restaurants that are dine-in. Particularly here in Texas where everything has been open for a while. I don't believe we're going to see that in the state for sure. I don't see how that could happen because they just can't make enough revenue with just to-go and delivery to stay open. "
According to Reuters, McDonald's Corp is instructing its franchisees on steps to follow if they are to re-close their dining rooms in areas where the Delta variant is rapidly spreading.
