The potential spread of the coronavirus to the United States is causing concern among the rideshare community. As drivers regularly interact with the public, a number of them are taking extra precautions to keep themselves and their passengers healthy.
Some rideshare drivers are receiving in-app messages from Uber urging drivers to protect themselves. If they feel sick, they’re asked to stay home. It’s also requested that drivers wash hands frequently, cover coughs or sneezes, and disinfect vehicles regularly.
