(CNN) -- McDonald's is suspending all-day breakfast amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The fast food giant says it's being done to simplify things in kitchens and for crews as the coronavirus strains day-to-day operations.

The move comes after McDonald’s closed all seating and play areas in its company-owned U.S. restaurants last week.

McDonald’s introduced all-day breakfast back in 2015.

Pulling it is a temporary move and McDonald’s plans to bring it back.
