The popular fast food franchise has started re-opening branches across the UK over the past few weeks.

McDonalds has announced this morning a further 39 restaurants across the UK and Ireland which opened their Drive Thru's today.

Tweeting on their official account, the chain stated these pilot restaurant re-openings were all chosen as they are close to one of their distribution centres as they prepare to get things back to normal.

The specified stores will be re-opening with a limited menu and spending cap of £25 per order, with the company heavily encouraging people pay via contactless payments.

All the re-opening stores will be open for takeaways only, from 10am to 11pm.

As well as this, the fast food chain plans to re-open all of their Drive-Thru's by the start of June.

A statement made by McDonalds reads: "Moving in step with government guidelines, we plan to reopen all our Drive-Thrus by early June.

"We will keep the restaurant locator on our website updated as our Drive Thrus reopen over the coming weeks

"When your local Drive Thru does reopen, it will be different.

"Our service will not be as quick as you might be used to, as we adjust to smaller teams and social distancing in our kitchens.

"We expect there will be some queues for some of our busier sites and our restaurants will look different, with Perspex screens at our Drive Thru windows and employees wearing protective equipment."

At the moment, a number of stores across the UK are open, either for only McDelivery, only the Drive-Thru or for both.

The statement continued: ""I ask that you continue to be supportive of and patient with our restaurant teams as we slowly and safely return.

"We are asking all of our employees to adapt to how our restaurants now work, and will only reopen at a pace that enables them to work safely.

"As we get accustomed to the new processes and procedures, we will look to reopen more restaurants, for longer hours and reintroduce more menu items.

"But only when I am confident we can do so whilst maintaining the new procedures we have introduced for the protection of our people."
