Yelp Will Start Telling You Which Restaurants Aren't Following Covid Rules


  • Yelp will start using crowdsourced information to find out if a restaurant complies with COVID rules.
  • Just like you can tag a restaurant as being "good for kids" or "romantic," Yelp users will now be able to pick things like "social distancing enforced" and "staff wears masks."
  • You'll be able to report the good and bad in the app's COVID-19 section on the restaurant's page. 
  • Any feedback will be posted if there are enough users who report the same things over a 28 day period. 
  • The same technology will be used for other businesses on Yelp as well.
