How Uber Drivers Can Stay Safe While Driving During The Coronavirus Outbreak

If you’re still driving, whether it’s for rideshare or delivery, it’s important to stay safe to protect your health and the health of others during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Uber has shared some top tips on how you can protect your health on the road, and you can find a summary below along with the link to the original article. The most important thing to remember is that you should not drive or deliver food if you’re feeling sick.

Top tips for Uber Drivers 

— Wear a face covering: Both drivers and riders should try to wear protective equipment such as face masks. Uber has begun shipping masks and disinfectant sprays to some drivers – you can find out more by clicking here.

— Cover your mouth and nose: If you sneeze or cough, do so into your elbow or a tissue. 

— Ask riders to maintain distance: Don’t be afraid to ask riders to sit in the back.

— Open the window: Roll down the windows to improve ventilation when possible.
