Add health and safety attributes in Google My Business – On September 11th Google announced the introduction of health and safety attributes for Google My Business listings.

I wrote about it in How to Add Covid-19 Precautions on Google My Business.

The health and safety attributes included:

  • Appointment required
  • Mask required
  • Staff get temperature checks
  • Staff wear masks
  • Temperature check required

Now some users noticed some new attributes (via Search Engine Roundtable):

  • Safety dividers at checkout
  • Staff required to disinfect surfaces between visits

Here’s a screenshot from the Increasily GMB, Health & Safety attributes section:

As you can see, I only see one of the new attributes. This is likely because some attributes might only be available for certain types of businesses.

How to Add Health and Safety Attributes to GMB

To add Health and Safety attributes to Google My Business, including the new ones:

  1. After selecting your listing, click on Info
  2. Scroll down to Health & Safety and click the pencil icon to edit
