How To Update Google My Business from “Temporarily Closed” to “Open”?

August 11, 2020

Google has launched the “Temporarily Closed” feature in March 2020. This feature appears as a red banner as “ TEMPORARILY CLOSED” at the top of the Google My Business listing.

This label was added by Google because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to various governments requests and to help the lockdown to be implemented effectively in various countries, Google has decided to automatically indicate the closed businesses. Now most of the businesses are opened, you can easily reopen a location that has been marked as permanently or temporarily closed.

How to Remove the Temporarily Closed Label in Google My Business?

If you have a single business location, then you can easily login to Google My Business Profile and go in to the info tab inside Google My Business. Right beside where you edit the address there should be an option called “ MARK AS OPEN”.

Once you choose this option, it’ll be under review for a few minutes and your business will get marked as “ OPEN” on the google maps.

step 4

Here, you should see a list of locations in your account.  Check the box beside the listing you want to re-open and click on the Actions button.
