LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Yelp is offering a new feature for users to report whether businesses are enforcing coronavirus guidelines.

The company says it's an expansion of Yelp's COVID-19 section on its profile pages.

Reviewers can mark whether the staff is wearing masks and if social distancing is being enforced.

For users to be warned about how a business is handling COVID guidelines, Yelp says there must be several complaints against the business.

Reviews of that business will then be monitored daily to see if conditions improve.
