Yelp announced that businesses will now be allowed to share their COVID-19 vaccination policies. So, now customers can determine if a business is a place they want to visit before they make the trek.

Businesses can now add to their profiles if their staff is fully vaccinated and if customers are required to show proof of vaccination. The information can be added via Yelp for Business accounts, which gives users the opportunity to find spots they want to visit that have policies they are comfortable with.

Yelp already allows businesses to keep users in the loop about other pandemic-related policies, including mask requirements for both customers and staff, if they offer contact-free services, and if outdoor dining is an option.

To combat a bombardment of negative reviews purely based on mask policies and not actual experience with the business, Yelp says it's proactively monitoring business pages that have elected to display their COVID-19 policies.
