EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — El Paso-area McDonald’s restaurants are re-opening their dining rooms at 100-percent capacity this week.

The fast food chain said Tuesday that the re-openings started Monday and will be completed on May 25. The change will “restore job opportunities in the community that were paused due to the pandemic,” according to a news release.

“While we’ve continued to serve the community throughout the pandemic, we are excited to once again be able to open our doors to our neighbors,” said Richard Castro, local McDonald’s owner/operator. “We look forward to welcoming our customers back into our dining rooms for the full McDonald’s experience.”

McDonald’s will continue some pandemic standards, such as social distancing and protective gear for employees. Below are the guidelines for in-restaurant dining at McDonald’s restaurants across the county:

  • Offering contactless ordering with table service via Mobile Order & Pay in the McDonald’s app
  • Closing some seating and tables to accommodate social distancing
  • More frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces, including tables
  • Crew members wearing masks or face coverings and gloves
  • Modifying our dine-in beverage procedures to minimize contact
  • Requiring customers to wear masks at all times except when seated and dining. Masks will be available upon request
