No masks, no service. Even with parts of society resuming, big changes are coming. Uber Canada is making a big adjustment to how people work and travel. Both passengers and drivers will now be required to wear masks during trips.\nThe company announced the change in a May 13 news release. Effective May 18, riders and drivers in Canada, as well as the United States and other regions, will have to keep their face covered.\nPassengers will have to complete a checklist before scheduling their ride. They will be asked to confirm that they are wearing a mask and that they have washed or sanitized their hands.\nAll passengers will also be required to sit in the back seat at all times and open a window for ventilation. UberX maximum capacity has also been reduced from four to three.\nDrivers will have to confirm that they are wearing a mask before they go online to start working. They'll be required to take a selfie to show they are following the rule.\nBoth drivers and passengers will be able to cancel rides without penalty if either party isn't wearing a mask. Anyone who is found repeatedly breaking the rules could be blocked from the service.\nUber said that they will make these new rules effective through June. At the end of the month, they will make any further decisions based on local health guidelines.\nWe're using technology to confirm your driver has a face cover or mask before they go online to help keep our community safe. pic.twitter.com/E9er2u9KAl— Uber (@Uber) May 13, 2020\nOn top of all of the new regulations, the ride-sharing company is also providing supplies to drivers so that they can keep their vehicles clean.
