MCDONALD'S confirmed yesterday two staff members at a Bradford store have tested positive for coronavirus in the past.

The fast-food chain revealed on Tuesday that two workers at the Five Lane Ends restaurant, off Bradford Road in Idle, had COVID-19 within a month of each other.

Both self-isolated at the time and the store had an enhanced deep clean, but did not close.

Other employees at the restaurant were also contacted and informed.

A McDonald’s spokesperson said: “Two employees at our Five Lane Ends restaurant tested positive for COVID-19.

"The positive tests were a month apart and both have self-isolated in response to this.

"As soon as we were informed, the restaurant was given an enhanced deep clean as a precautionary measure and we contacted restaurant employees."

A member of the public, who wished to remain anonymous, also contacted the T&A to raise concerns about the store's track and trace system.

They said that customers have to scan a QR code whenever they visit.

But they said that many choose not to do this and claimed it is not monitored by staff.

McDonald's refuted this though and outlined it has a robust system in place, with all positive and negative cases checked.

The spokesperson added: "We have a number of safety measures in place to help keep our people safe, including perspex screens, temperature checks at the start of each shift, maintaining a two-metre distance from others as much as possible, face coverings, regular hand washing and the use of hand sanitiser.”
