Dining out has been a bit of a challenge since the pandemic hit. First restaurants were closed, then it was outdoor dining and now that winter has set it, it’s smaller capacity and rules to follow. What about the places that are a bit laxer? Would you want to know if the staff doesn’t consistently wear masks, or they make you touch a dirty screen at checkout, or they don’t offer hand sanitizer for customers passing through?
These observations will be displayed on businesses’ Yelp pages in the COVID-19 sections that have been in place since last June. Yelp thinks you need to know, so they have a new feature that lets customers report how well places are following COVID-19 safety guidelines. Just like users can offer feedback on whether businesses offer free Wi-Fi, have street parking, or are good for groups, they can now offer feedback on what precautions a business is taking to keep customers safe.
