Google now lists test centers for COVID-19 in the search engine results

Google now lists test centers for COVID-19 in the search engine results,Google’s search for COVID-19 terms will now disclose information for more than 2,000 COVID-19 research centers across 43 US states, the firm says.

There are other variations, too. If you are looking for something relevant to COVID-19, you can now see a new tab “Testing” as part of the details displayed in the COVID-19 SOS warning from Google. Once you click or tap on the Testing tab, you will see at the top of your search results a range of tools about COVID-19 testing. Which include: a connection to the online COVID-19 symptom checker from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a recommendation to speak to a health care professional if you think you should be checked, a connection to the local health authorities’ COVID-19 testing details and a reminder that you will need to contact a test center in advance to make sure you will actually get a test.

You won’t see listings for research centers in Connecticut, Maine, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Oregon and Pennsylvania Unless you’re in Connecticut, Maine, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Oregon or Pennsylvania, Google tells The Verge. That’s because Google is only surfacing test locations that have been certified by health authorities for release, the company says. For the same reason, Google only lists a single test center for the state of New York located in Albany, but the company plans to add more New York listings soon.

Here’s what the tests to me look like. I’m writing this from Portland, OR, so the findings don’t differ with the requirements and availability of COVID-19 research depending on where you live, which is why Google is referring to local knowledge using such tools. According to a Google help paper, the research information comes from “policy agencies, departments of public health, or directly from health-care organizations.”

On 21 March Google launched a COVID-19 website with pandemic knowledge and tools.Google’s sister company Verily also gives people in parts of California, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania free COVID-19 tests if they qualify after taking an online screening.
