Uber Plans On Requiring FaceMasks of Drivers


Uber “plans to require drivers and riders to wear face masks or face coverings when using the platform in certain countries, including the United States, CNN Business has learned.” In a statement to CNN Business, Uber safety communications chief Andrew Hasbun said, “As countries reopen, Uber is focused on safety and proceeding with caution. Today, we continue to ask riders to stay home if they can, while shipping safety supplies to drivers who are providing essential trips. At the same time, our teams are preparing for the next phase of recovery, where we will all have a role to play.” CNN adds, “For roughly six weeks, much of the US has been under stay-at-home orders due to the pandemic, upending Uber’s core ride-hailing business.”
