Google today announced an update to Google Maps that includes a number of new COVID-related features, as well as the ability to see the live status of your takeout or delivery orders, as well as the launch of the long-expected new Assistant driving mode.

Google Maps' COVID-19 overlay, originally rolled out in September originally displayed trending cases in an area (seven-day average of cases per 100,000 people and whether cases are rising and falling), allowing Google Maps users to make informed decisions about traveling to an area.

Google's transit predictions, which use aggregated and anonymized Location History data, have been available since a year ago.

The COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, in fact, cases have spiked in the past few weeks. Google says that this extra data will be "particularly helpful in case you're taking off of town and need to find a good pace about the nearby rules, testing locales and limitations in another city".
