Google’s Announcement: Businesses affected by COVID-19: Provide customers with updated info

Google My Business is located here: https://business.google.com/

If your business is affected by COVID-19, update your Google My Business profile to provide the most accurate information to your customers. For example, change your hours of operation if youโ€™re closing early, or add more details to your description. The updates will show on your Business Profile on Google Search and Maps.

Important: We may review your changes for quality before publishing them, so the changes may not immediately be available on Google Search and Maps.

Here are some ways to make sure your customers have the latest information about your business.

Change your business hours

If your business hours have changed, update the times when youโ€™ll be open or closed. The hours will show when the customer visits your Business Profile, and theyโ€™ll know exactly when to visit. Learn how to change your hours.

Manage your information

Explain whether or not your business operations are affected by COVID-19. You can share information about any extra precautions the business is taking, if youโ€™re providing any extra services to the community, or whether youโ€™re experiencing delays. Learn more about editing your business description.

Create a post

Share more detailed and timely updates about whatโ€™s going on with your business through Posts. For example, add information about what products and services you have available, and link to other resources. You can continue to use Posts to directly communicate with your customers on a regular basis as your business changes. Learn how to create a post.

Update your phone number

Make sure your phone number is correct so that customers can reach you. Learn how to edit your number.

Tip: You can edit other information in your Business Profile at any time. Learn more.

Why we care. 

It is important for you to keep your customers up-to-date on your business operations. If you are impacted in any way that might change how your business hours are impacted, or you need to update the phone number to go to your home or mobile number, or anything else, Google wants you to let your customers know about that. People use Google search all the time to look for updated information on your business and here Google is reminding you to update your Google My Business listing with those details.
