SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – McDonald’s is cutting items from its menu in an effort to make things easier for its employees working during the coronavirus pandemic. 

In a statement Wednesday, McDonald’s said it plans to roll out a limited menu in the US. 

The limited menu will not include all-day breakfast items, salads, grilled chicken sandwiches, and chicken tenders, according to a report. 

Rather, items that will continue to be served include the fast-food chain’s best-selling items like McMuffins and McGriddles in the morning, as well as hamburgers and fries for the rest of the day. 

Don’t worry, the change is only temporary, though. 

Shortly after the announcement, McDonald’s U.S. President Joe Erlinger tweeted, “All day breakfast’s response to this news: ‘I’ll be back.’”

McDonald’s launched its all-day breakfast menu in 2015. 

The limited menu comes after the closure of all dine-in service at all restaurants in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
