Google announced this morning that it added support for the new SpecialAnnouncement structured data to Google Search Console. This means that the enhancement report, the Performance report and the rich results test now all support SpecialAnnouncement structured data.

Google began supporting the SpecialAnnouncements schema early last month and has already added these features to Search Console a month later. Again, this is only for government, medical, and health sites.
