McDonald’s is slashing items from its menu to make life easier for employees working during the coronavirus outbreak.

On Wednesday, the fast-food giant announced internally that it plans to roll out a limited menu in the US amid the coronavirus outbreak. Customers will no longer be able to order breakfast all day or items including salads, grilled chicken sandwiches, and chicken tenders.

According to an internal McDonald’s document obtained by Business Insider, the fast-food giant is not making the decision due to supply issues.

“Supply has not been an issue for any of our food and paper products currently,” the document states. “This simplified menu is to make it easier in the restaurants during these challenging times.”

According to the document, the items that will continue to be served include the best selling menu items available at the chain. Customer favorites such as McMuffins, McChicken Biscuits, and McGriddles will be available in the morning; Big Macs, hamburgers, quarter pounders, fries, and Filet-O-Fit are among the menu items available the rest of the day.

Bill Garrett, McDonald’s senior vice president of operations, said in a statement to Business Insider that locations across the US will begin temporarily removing some items in the next few weeks.
