NBC News reported that Uber has updated their mask policy as of April 19th, and masks are no longer required for Uber riders or drivers. Uber advised. customers, “If you ever feel uncomfortable, you can always cancel the trip.”


According to NBC News, Uber did note that the CDC still recommends masks in circumstances such as high personal risk or living in an area with high COVID-19 cases, and they also said, “Remember: many people still feel safer wearing a mask because of personal or family health situations, so please be respectful of their preferences.”
