Google Maps now warning you of crowding, Covid-19 restrictions

To combat this and future pandemics, Google Maps is now giving you a heads up when public transit is packed, when areas are shut down for public health reasons, checkpoints for Covid-19, and restrictions on crossing boarders.

If you’re navigating to testing centers there’ll be an eligibility notification so you don’t risk being turned away.

Some other choice features have been added for safety and mobility you can check out in the Google Blog entry linked below.
