McDonald’s employees may begin calling the police on customers who refuse to wear masks in their establishments, company CEO Chris Kempczinski said during a Thursday appearance on CBS This Morning.
McDonald’s has put in a series of safety precautions in the era of the novel coronavirus, including increased sanitization and cleaning and requiring customers to wear face coverings in the establishment beginning August 1.
CEO Chris Kempczinski, however, suggested that employees could involve law enforcement in cases where customers refuse to wear a face covering.
Kempczinski noted that many customers have been understanding and expressed the belief that “the vast majority of people, vast majority of Americans understand why it’s important to be wearing a mask.”
McDonald’s is one of the latest major establishments to require customers to wear masks, including Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and Starbucks.
