"Rest assured, we are working hard to reopen more restaurants, but I am adamant this must be at the right pace with the wellbeing of our employees, suppliers and customers front of mind.
"Slowly, but safely, we will return to towns and cities across the UK and Ireland, and thank you for your continued support as we work through this crisis."
The fast food chain is introducing a series of social distancing measures to keep customers and employees safe, including perspex screens and floor markings, PPE (which will include non medical grade face masks) and all employees must confirm they are fit and able to work.
Employees will also have their temperature taken on arrival at work each day, where a contactless thermometer will be used. Social distancing measures will also be introduced for delivery and service partners.
