“Whether you’re staying close to home or taking a trip, use the Covid layer to see how cases are trending in an area. You can also access quick links to trusted local resources so you’ll know at a glance if there are specific guidelines or restrictions you need to follow,” said Wanda X. Plore, Head of Safe Exploration, Google Maps.

“Before you go, search for your destination on Google Maps, then scroll down on the Business Profile to see how busy a place typically is or how busy it is right now. With busyness information, you’ll know instantly you’re about to face a long line or a big crowd and can adjust your plans accordingly,” Google explained.

The company is also adding new features to Maps’ Timeline section on Android.

A new “Insights” tab shows trends about the amount of time and distance you’ve spent using different transport methods and the places you’ve visited.
