Uber requiring masks for all drivers and riders

National Coronavirus Coverage

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Whether you’re an Uber driver or rider, you’ll need to start wearing a mask.

Uber executives decided last week that the ride-share service will require face coverings when using the platform in certain countries, including the United States..

The requirement is expected to be rolled out and enforce in the coming weeks. Uber says it’s also in the process of developing technology to hold drivers and riders accountable.

The company said it’s trying to get masks to drivers as soon as possible, but that it may take some time because supplies are limited.
