A McDonald's restaurant in Stockport has reportedly been forced to close after five of its staff members tested positive for coronavirus.
The branch on Welling Road South was closed as a "precautionary measure", the Manchester Evening News (MEN) has reported.
It comes as laws underpinning new lockdown restrictions for Greater Manchester, parts of east Lancashire and West Yorkshire are yet to be implemented four days after the rules were introduced, the Government has admitted.
A McDonald's spokesperson told MEN that the decision was taken "as a precautionary measure" following a rise of Covid-19 cases in the local area, along with five of their employees testing positive.
The spokesperson added: "As with all of the decisions we have made across this unprecedented period, the safety of our people and customers is our absolute priority, and we will re-open as soon as we feel we can."
