In response to the continuous spread of coronavirus, McDonald's has just announced that going from March 25 to April 7, all McDonald's outlets in Hong Kong will halt its dine-in services after 6pm, including 24-hour locations. Randy Lai, CEO of McDonald's Hong Kong, issued a statement about readjusting their operations in order to discourage dine-ins and take action on social distancing – "McDonald's is a part of Hong Kong's community, and we care about our staff and the public's health."
With dine-in services temporarily unavailable, those who would like to indulge in some junk food can still order takeaways or have your burgers and fries delivered via McDelivery. During this period, no delivery fee will be charged for any orders between 6pm and midnight.
In addition, McDonald's also announced the return of its popular 'Double series' to help lift the spirits of Hongkongers. From March 30 between Monday to Friday (6pm-9pm), those who are working late or stuck in the office can enjoy the Double Fillet-O-Fish meal and Double Chicken McNuggets (12pcs) meal for just $35, Sausage McMuffin with egg meal for $38, and the Angus Original for $45. As the great saying goes, I'm lovin' it.
