(CNN) — Apple is working on a new tool to help people find coronavirus testing sites in their area. According to USA Today, the tech company launched a portal on its website for medical facilities to register as coronavirus screening locations.

Apple will then verify those testing sites and include them as destination options on its “Apple Maps” app.

The blogging website “9to5Mac” says the app will also provide information on drive-thru testing locations.

It is not clear when this new update will be made available for IOS users.
