McDonald’s CEO said that restaurant employees “might bring in” the police to enforce mask policies in instances where customers refuse to don a face covering.

Restaurant chains including Starbucks, Shake Shack, and Chipotle already require customers and staff to wear masks as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic is having a huge financial impact on the restaurant industry as well.  McDonald’s said Wednesday it will close 200 locations amidst declining sales.

“If someone is unwilling to wear a mask and comply with our rules, that might be where we might bring in law enforcement,” said Chris Kempczinski, the chain’s CEO, on the CBS news program “CBS This Morning.”

“We’ve for quite some time required our crew to wear masks, but we thought that in light of what we’re seeing, it’s prudent now that we also ask our customers to wear masks in the restaurant as well,” he told anchor Anthony Mason.
