Google is adding another tool to help us stay safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Wednesday, the company announced a new feature in Google Maps: An info layer that shows information on COVID-19 cases in a particular area.
To check it out, open Google Maps, tap on the layers button in the top right corner (see image below), and tap on COVID-19 info. Note that the feature is rolling out gradually, so it may not be available for you yet.
