Uber will require riders & drivers to wear masks
Both drivers and riders of Uber will need to wear face masks while using the service. The company will suspend the accounts of people who repeatedly break the new rule.
Riders, similarly, will have to go through their own checklist before they can get into an Uber ride. The app will ask them to confirm that they're wearing a mask and that they washed or sanitized their hands. Both groups will be able to cancel a trip without incurring a penalty if someone shows up without proper protection. "Drivers and riders who repeatedly violate mask policies risk losing access to Uber," the company said.
