Some Google My Business profiles have new attributes options for Health & Safety. Of course, these are directly related to Covid-19 pandemic and are available in multiple countries and languages.

The new attribute options that I came across are:

  • Appointment required
  • Mask required
  • Staff get temperature checks
  • Staff wear masks
  • Temperature check required
  • Safety dividers at checkout (New)
  • Staff required to disinfect surfaces between visits (New)
