Google is suggesting businesses to update its Google My Business listings if the business is affected by COVID-19.
Google has published a help document describing that businesses can update their business hours, phone numbers, and business descriptions and use Google Posts to share more information.
Google’s help document states that “[i]f 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 you’re closing early, or add more details to your description. The updates will show on your Business Profile on Google Search and Maps.”
To update your Google My Business hours of operation and description, login your Google My Business page and click on Info on the left-hand side.
Then, click on Hours of Operation and/or Add Special Hours.
To create Google My Business posts, click on Post on the navigation bar in the left-hand side.
Then, you can create a post as an update.
