Uber Inc. said it will require drivers, delivery workers and riders globally to wear a face mask to curb the spread of Coronavirus as from Monday.
Anyone using Uber Inc. ride-hailing service is required to wear some form of face covering.
As countries around the world begin to ease restrictions, the company will also lower the number of passengers allowed on its standard Uber rides to three from four.
Uber will release updates to its driver and rider app to inform users about the changes, executives said during a call with journalists on Wednesday.
Repeated failure to comply with the requirement can lead to account deactivation for both riders and drivers, the executives said.
Before starting their work each day, the app will require drivers to take a selfie with a mask, verify that they do not exhibit any coronavirus symptoms.
The app will also confirm that they have sanitized their vehicles and agree to roll down windows during rides.
