The application for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration stimulus check is in effect now for McDonald’s restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The stimulus check was supposed to be a temporary measure that would allow for the fast-food chain to resume operating in certain regions, but the Trump administration rescinded the measure on Tuesday.
The government says that if McDonald’s doesn’t resume operations in a certain part of the country by Oct. 1, the food chain will have to reapply to the FDA for permission to resume operations.
The Trump administration has said that the federal government would continue to enforce its food safety regulations until the FDA approves McDonald’s reapplication.
The White House has been pushing for a stimulus check for months, and it has received some support from the food industry, but many industry analysts have said that McDonald’s will face competition from other fast-casual chain restaurants.
McDonald’s is a major contributor to the national economy, accounting for about a third of the U,S.
gross domestic product and more than 40 percent of jobs in the U., according to the American Council on Science and Health.
