Google is sending out email notifications to business owners through Google My Business asking businesses to update their details if the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) affecting your business. The email asks "Is the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) affecting your business?"

These emails are the same thing as the coronavirus help document we posted about earlier this week. It basically is encouraging business owners to update the company business listings so customers know what to expect.
