Rideshare Giant Now Requiring Masks for Drivers and Riders Indefinitely

The “no mask, no ride” policy has no expiration date.

The debate over whether or not to wear a mask to prevent the spread of coronavirus is coming to an end.

Notice that I said the debate over the masks is coming to an end, not the actual wearing of the masks.

This is because corporations and small businesses alike are taking the choice to wear a mask out of the hands of their customers by requiring the facial coverings in an attempt to help curb the spread of coronavirus here in the United States.  This infamously began with big box retailer CostCo, whose store policy was met with heavy backlash from certain segments of American society.

Uber soon followed suit, and this week extended the policy indefinitely.

In response to the sudden COVID-19 sweeping into different parts of the country, Uber announced it’s extending its mask policy, requiring passengers and drivers to cover up “indefinitely.”

As part of the company’s “No Mask, No Ride” mandate, both riders and drivers in the United States and Canada will be required to cover their nose and mouth for the duration of a trip. If drivers do not have one, riders will be able to cancel their trip, according to Uber.

“Extending our “No Mask, No Ride” policy is the right thing to do,” an Uber spokesperson told FOX Business. “We want to send a clear message to everyone using Uber that we all have a role to play to keep each other safe.”

New COVID-19 cases in the United States topped 50,000 on Thursday, which constitutes a new single-day record for America.

In recent days, anti-mask stalwarts in Congress and the White House changed their tune, with even President Trump admitting that he has been donning a mask in recent days.
