Each customer will be encouraged to pay by contactless payment methods.
A statement from Paul Pomroy, McDonald's CEO for the UK and Ireland, reads: "There has been an incredible response to news of our reopening and we know many of you are eager for us to extend our reopening plans at a faster pace.
"The well-being of our employees, suppliers and delivery partners' couriers is my top priority and we will only extend our plans at a pace that enables us to create a safe working environment for our teams.
"Moving in step with government guidelines, we plan to reopen all our Drive-Thrus by early June. We will keep the restaurant locator on our website updated as our Drive-Thrus reopen over the coming weeks."
Paul also asked customers to 'bear with' the chain once it reopened, as it will take time before the restaurants can offer the same speed and range of options as it did pre-coronavirus.
He said: "When your local Drive-Thru does reopen, it will be different. Our service will not be as quick as you might be used to, as we adjust to smaller teams and social distancing in our kitchens.
"We expect there will be some queues for some of our busier sites and our restaurants will look different, with Perspex screens at our Drive-Thru windows and employees wearing protective equipment.
"I ask that you continue to be supportive of and patient with our restaurant teams as we slowly and safely return. We are asking all of our employees to adapt to how our restaurants now work, and will only reopen at a pace that enables them to work safely.
"As we get accustomed to the new processes and procedures, we will look to reopen more restaurants, for longer hours and reintroduce more menu items. But only when I am confident we can do so whilst maintaining the new procedures we have introduced for the protection of our people."
