Uber Canada abandons mask duty

Uber Canada will no longer require drivers and passengers to wear masks when using its service as of April 22.

“In accordance with the province’s public health guidelines, masks will no longer be required when using Uber in Canada (except Quebec) effective this Friday, April 22,” a spokesperson for Uber said. Uber Canada told in an email Tuesday.

However, Uber Canada still encourages it.

“Following Health Canada’s advice, we still strongly recommend wearing a mask depending on your individual risk factors and infection rates in your area,” the statement continued.

The driver still has the right to require his rider to wear a mask and can cancel the trip for safety reasons if he or she refuses.

It is not clear if a rider can require their driver to wear a mask.

“As we move forward and COVID-19 protocol and masking guidelines continue to evolve, we are committed to maintaining policies that help keep everyone on our platform as safe as possible.” Uber Canada said in the statement.
