Is my Google Plus page a "personal account" or something else?

My business has a Google Plus page here:  https://www.google.com/maps/place/Maui+Tradewinds/@20.915941,-156.2851497,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xef284bc45ffaaf1e!8m2!3d20.915941!4d-156.282961   I'm receiving notices from Google that Google Plus "Personal accounts" or "consumer accounts" will be de-activated on April 2.  To my knowledge, I only have one Google Plus page, and it has always been classified by Google as "Google My Business".   I'd like to know if whether my page is a personal Google Plus account or whether it falls under a different category which won't be affected on April 2.

Hi ddantes,
That link is for your Google Business page (what a business, can I visit??). It should not be affected by the Google+ social media section shutting down.

They still encourage users to use their business page and make posts etc.

This Google support page outlines what's going to happen.

Hope this helps!
