Why are some fast food dining areas still closed? There are a few reasons

Some people have wondered why fast food chains haven’t reopened their dining rooms. Specifically, some McDonald’s dining rooms remain closed- and patrons are wondering, “When will they reopen?”

Legally, they are perfectly within their right- per the state’s COVID guidance and restrictions to reopen whenever they would like.

However, franchises- since they’re operated by individuals are all following their own sets of rules. Some have left dining rooms closed for a lack of staffing- as most are hiring for a majority of positions.

While others have left dining rooms closed as concerns about the pandemic itself remain high.

News10NBC looked into this issue and found that most of the restaurants that have been keeping dining areas closed are slowly reopening.
