Users can now find a new “Testing” tab on the search result page providing a list of nearby testing labs along with key information and guidance needed before using their services.
On Google Maps, when users search for keywords like “covid testing” or “coronavirus testing” they will see a list of nearby testing labs, with a link to Google Search for the government-mandated requirements.
Google said that the Search, Assistant, and Maps currently feature 700 testing labs across 300 cities and working with authorities to identify and add more testing labs located across the country.
