What is it

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

They are appearing now on Google Search and Google Maps Listings on both desktop and mobile (14 Sept 2020)
