A shared safety ritual
Mask mandates and safety protocols may be changing, but there are still steps you can take to help protect one another and our communities: Wash your hands. Wear a mask if you want to. Air it out.
Masks are no longer required
As of April 19, 2022, riders and drivers are not required to wear masks when using Uber. However, the CDC still recommends wearing a mask depending on personal risk factors and transmission levels in your area.
Remember: many drivers still feel safer wearing masks. Please be considerate if they ask you to wear one in their car. If you don’t want to wear a mask, you’re free to cancel the ride.
Updating our no-front-seat policy
Riders are no longer required to only sit in the back seat. However, to give drivers space, we ask that they only use the front seat if it’s required by the size of their group.
Thank you for helping take care of one another
We know that the pandemic has been difficult. But you’ve continued to do the right thing for our communities—whether it’s wearing a mask, making space for one another, or giving drivers the respect they deserve. Thank you for that.
Still, it’s important that we continue to take safety precautions while riding and driving. So make sure to roll down the windows for extra airflow, sanitize your hands before and after trips, and always cover your cough or sneeze.
In this together
