On Sunday, Reddit user cdubwub posted a photo with the caption “My local McDonald’s is reminding us … some things in life are worth stopping for.”
“On Monday, August 21, we will stop taking orders between the time of: 1:17 p.m. to 1:20 p.m. to allow our employees to enjoy the ‘once in a lifetime’ spectacle of the totality of the Solar Eclipse,” the sign reads. “We will resume normal business around 1:21 p.m.”
At least one other McDonald’s in Nashville, Illinois is giving workers a (slightly longer) break to watch the eclipse.

Some McDonald’s are also stocked with eclipse glasses. McDonald’s locations in Oregon are on NASA and the American Astronomical Society’s list of certified retailers of eclipse glasses, which allow you to safely watch the solar eclipse on August 21.
