New face-cover policy
Face covers or masks will be mandatory for everyone riding or driving with Uber. This policy is designed to help protect the health and safety of you and your driver, and will go into effect on May 18, 2020.

When wearing a face cover or mask, make sure it covers your face from the bridge of your nose down to your chin.

No front-seat passengers
To allow for more distance between you and your driver, we are advising riders to no longer sit in the front seat.

This means every ride with Uber will have one less passenger seat available. For example, rides with UberX can have a maximum of 3 passengers—allowed only in the back seat.

As the global leader in rideshare, we’re proud to put safety at the heart of everything we do. Look out for more updates next week about how we’re expanding our commitment to your safety.

What you'll need to do:
Stay home if you have COVID-19
If you feel sick, staying home is the best way to help contain it and protect other people.
Wear your face covering
To help slow the spread of the virus, put your face covering on before you get in the car, and wear it for the whole ride.
Keep the car — and your hands — clean
Sanitize your hands before touching anything in the car. And please don't leave trash behind.
Sit in the back seat
Out of respect for your driver, put some protective distance between yourself and the driver's seat.

Keep the car windows open
When possible, do your part to help increase air circulation in the car.
