Keeping Waze Updated During the COVID-19 Outbreak

The Waze Crisis Response Team is working together with our community of volunteer Map Editors and governments around the globe to add quarantine-related road closures, map pins for medical testing centers, and emergency food distribution center locations. Waze is also adding in-app reminders with local restrictions. Find out more on how Waze is helping here.

We are making our Waze COVID-19 Impact Dashboard externally available so governments, academics and the interested public can gain more insight into local driving trends as part of their overall COVID-19 response and recovery efforts.
