McDonald's is set to begin reopening some of its restaurants to walk-in takeaway again later this week.

The company voluntarily closed its walk-in takeaway service last month but continued to offer drive-through and third-party delivery services.

McDonald's said they will be opening a small number of restaurants this week on a trial basis, with a plan to open the majority of restaurants throughout the country from February 22nd.

A statement from McDonald's said that new safety measures being introduced include visors as well as face coverings for customer facing employees.

"The wellbeing of our people, as well as our suppliers, couriers and our customers remains our top priority, and we are confident the new processes in place will further enhance our already robust safety measures," it said.
