MILAN – The main British coffee chains are pushing forward with further reopenings across the UK: Costa Coffee announced on Wednesday 46 more openings in the country. Social distancing measures are in place, including only allowing a handful of customers in store and queuing at two-metre distances.

Customers at Costa stores will be able to purchase their items with contactless payment methods only and won’t be able to provide reusable cups.

McDonald’s has reopened 33 of its drive-through restaurants as it gets back to business amid the easing of the coronavirus lockdown restrictions. The fast food chain opened 15 of its 1,270 branches for delivery orders earlier in May.

The latest restaurants to open, in London and the south-east of England, will offer a limited menu between 11am and 10pm, with workers separated from customers by a perspex screen at the drive-through window.

Customers will be asked to pay using a contactless method if possible and spending is capped at £25 per car.
