There were reports of waits of up to an hour-and-a-half at the fast food giant's branch in Astley Bridge, Bolton.

McDonalds drive-thru service will re-start once again for the first time since March, when it was forced to shut due to the pandemic.

It has put safety measures in place including Perspex screens, face coverings, gloves and social distancing measures.

The McDonald's at Stevenage Leisure Park, and Monkswood Retail Park, have both reopened, as well as the Hitchin drive-thru on A505 Nightingale Road, and the Letchworth McDonald's on Avenue One.

McDonalds reopened from 11am and are serving a reduced menu.

Some 2,000 people will participate in the trial, which will be conducted with the support of the Health Ministry, Unifesp said. Gottlieb said that a single dose of the vaccine, if discovered, won't be sufficient to keep oneself safe from coronavirus.

Rivals, including Subway, Burger King, Pret A Manger, Nando's and Wagamama, have recently laid out plans to rapidly open more sites as restaurant chains get to grips with social distancing.

Announcing the changes, a McDonald's spokesperson said: "This is only possible following the hard work of the teams in our 44 pilot restaurants".

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

"Over the last fortnight, our employees, franchisees and suppliers have worked tirelessly to implement new procedures to enable safe working so that we can now help all parts of the United Kingdom and Ireland to enjoy the return of the Big Mac".

All McDonald's employees will be asked to confirm they are fit and able to work and contactless thermometers will be used to take employee temperatures on arrival at work for every shift.
