Over the past few months, Uber has also launched a slew of safety measures, such as the ‘Go Online Checklist' and a mandatory mask policy for riders, pre-trip mask verification selfies for drivers, and mandatory driver education around Covid-19 related safety protocols.

Riders and drivers can also cancel a trip, without penalty, if the other person is not wearing a mask.
