From PC Mag: Back in May, Uber introduced a new policy known as "No Mask, No Ride," which required both its drivers and all riders to wear masks during their ride-hailing trips. It was expected to remain in place until the end of June, but now it's required indefinitely.
As Fox Business reports, Uber's response comes as COVID-19 continues to spread rapidly across the US. Its mask-wearing policy will remain in place for as long as necessary. "Extending our “No Mask, No Ride” policy is the right thing to do ... We want to send a clear message to everyone using Uber that we all have a role to play to keep each other safe," an Uber spokesperson says.
Uber is taking mask wearing seriously and demands drivers take a selfie of themselves using the Uber app to show they are wearing a mask before picking up passengers. Riders can report drivers for not wearing or removing a mask, and riders have the option to cancel a trip if they do. However, riders not wearing a mask can also be reported and face a suspension or permanent ban from the service.
