Yelp Will Tell You If Local Businesses Are Enforcing Masks And Social Distancing

Posted: Jan 12, 2021

Customers observing coronavirus violations at businesses and restaurants can now complain on Yelp.

The crowd-sourced review platform is expanding its Covid-19 section on profile pages to include information about enforcement of social distancing and if staff are wearing masks with new indicators activated by user reports. Yelp said Tuesday that the changes aim to "instill confidence in consumers to continue supporting local businesses."

Yelp (YELP) stated that a "number of criteria must be met" before it warns people, including complaints from multiple Yelp users that are logged in from their accounts. The company said that feedback from the previous 28 days will be used and complaints will be evaluated daily to keep the warnings accurate and current.

Users will see green check mark if the Covid-19 recommendations are being followed or an orange question mark if not. Yelp will also indicate if complaints are mixed with a phrase such as "Social distancing might not be enforced according to some users" or "Staff might not wear masks according to some users."
