McDonald's is among several restaurants that are closing off seating amid the coronavirus outbreak.

"Ensuring the health and safety of our people and our communities is our highest priority as the United States quickly mobilizes to slow the spread of COVID-19," the company said in a statement Monday.

The fast-food burger chain, which announced the change for its independent franchise owners, will serve customers through drive-thru, walk-in takeout and delivery.

Additionally, PlayPlaces will be closed as of Monday.
