She allegedly told officers she tested positive for COVID-19 while in custody and coughed in the face of a male senior constable.
The woman was charged with not complying with a direction regarding spitting or coughing during the COVID-19 crisis, common assault and destroying property.
Her matter was briefly mentioned at Campbelltown Local Court on Thursday. She did not apply for bail and it was formally refused.
She's due back at the same court on May 18. 
A McDonald's spokesman told Macarthur Chronicle the staff member had been offered 'full support'. 
'The safety and security of our people and customers is our top priority,' he said. 
'We have a number of security measures in place, such as CCTV, and are assisting the police with their investigation into this incident.
'We do not tolerate any form of violence or abuse.'
Daily Mail Australia has contacted McDonald's for comment.
