Apple maps will soon feature COVID-19 testing locations

Apple has launched an online portal for healthcare providers, labs or other businesses to register as COVID-19 testing locations, which means that you’ll soon be able to find COVID-19 testing locations on Apple Maps – alongside information specific to the location.


After the sites are registered, the ‌Apple Maps‌ team will review the application, and upon approval it will appear in ‌Apple Maps‌.


To see the testing locations, look for a red medical glyph icon and a unique “COVID-19 Testing Site” card. ‌Apple Maps‌ will show the place name, associated healthcare provider, contact number and website, as well as information about the type of testing location. Applicants wishing to register a site will also be asked to state whether the testing location will require a doctor’s referral or a scheduled appointment.


Apple has not said how long it will be before we start to see the sites appear on Maps, but they say that they are working quickly to verify and add as many testing locations as possible.
